About Izzy

I am married to my brilliant artist Robert, who does everything he can to make our home and our family a fun place to be. He is our chef, decorator and all around good guy. We have three energetic children, two girls and a boy. They keep us smiling and a little bit crazy. We also have 5 and a half cats: Britney, Rufus, Max, Gracie, and Willow. And Lily is the office cat who comes home with me on long holidays. There is nothing better than a purry kitty to help you feel better on a blue day. Well, except maybe a warm puppy. We have FOUR Shih Tzu puppies named Murphy, Riley, Daisy, and Rory. They bring us so much joy. We are an artsy family and if you're looking for us - you probably should just check the local theatre, concert hall, or artist gallery.

I am a frustrated writer, dancer and photographer.  And my "real" job is an administrative manager at small pharmaceutical company.  So I use blogging, managing my husband's art career, and theatre to feed my need for creativity.  I hope you can find something to relate to in these "pages".

"People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten.
Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway."

-Mother Teresa
