Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog, Balancing the Busy.

I’m Jen and like a lot of people, I am constantly trying to create balance in my busy world. I’m a mom to a fantastic little boy and an amazing young lady. I can often be found at a soccer game, working out, or shopping for a great bargain. I am married to my best friend, but I also love a girl’s night out. We live in the town I was raised in and while I cherish my roots, there are so many places in the world I would love to see.

I am a recovering people pleaser, yet thrive on my addiction to books, music, and coffee. I run and go to yoga for equal parts of mind/body therapy. Eating healthy is a huge priority, but so is food that tastes amazing.

I earned a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from California State University, Sacramento, but this is the closest I’ve come to putting that degree to use. I work to feed my family- I write to feed my soul.

I guess that’s where this balance thing comes into play. How do we fit it all in, getting the dirty work done and still making time for the things that matter most?

Balancing the Busy reminds readers that life is meant to be enjoyed, that surrounding ourselves with the people and things that we love will help us thrive. You will find practical ideas to help simplify your life, projects to add the fun into the busy, my own bits of “wisdom” about life, and encouragement to practice taking care of yourself.

I could not be happier that you are here with me. If we can’t create more hours in the day, we can at least make the most of balancing the busy!!
