Meet Mary Rae Fouts

Welcome to my blog, Thoughts from Mary Rae Fouts

Greetings!  I'm Mary Rae Fouts.  Welcome to my blog Thoughts from Mary Rae Fouts, where I talk about current happenings and offer my thoughts on a variety of  topics.

I live in beautiful Pleasant Hill, California with my best-husband-in-the-world Jim and faithful canine companions Husky-mix Sid and Chow-mix Lexi.  I love to garden, cook, bake, and collect wine.  Regarding my baking, I am admittedly a sourdough baking fanatic, baking bread, rolls, pizza, and other goodies with all sourdough starter, no active yeast.

I am a voracious reader, crossword puzzler, Scrabble player, and an avid baseball fan.  (Go Giants!)  I also collect Disney memorabilia, with particular fondness for the loveable donkey Eeyore.

Oh, and I prefer to ride a bicycle or walk for local transportation rather than drive a car.

I am passionate about my career.  I bring 29 years of tax, insurance, and financial services experience to my clients, who typically have technical or complex concerns.

I focus my life on three simple concepts:  Say no to negativity.  Be true to yourself.  Don't just stay positive, be positive!  I do not worry about anything because worrying has never solved one concern or problem in the history of the Earth.  I focus on living each day in the moment, enjoying activities that make me happy in both my personal life and professional career.
