    I grew up in a very busy household. There were nine of us (five girls, two boys, and mom and dad). When we weren’t in church or in school we were at the Boerne Lake.

    We lived in a small town in the Texas Hill Country, just outside of San Antonio.

    Texas boasts of its crystal clear waters, and rightfully so. This particular lake was my favorite because it was very secluded and no motorboats were allowed so it seemed even cleaner than the others.

    Balance is key in everything we do.

    Dancing all night is just as important as yoga in the morning. Relaxing on the couch and listening to the rain is just as important as taking a long walk in the sunshine.

    A good conversation with friends is just as important as sitting peacefully in a quiet room, and a breakfast feast of bacon, eggs, fried potatoes and biscuits and gravy is just as important as a bowl of fresh fruit and oatmeal.
