Meet 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 Pleasant Hill, California with my best-husband-in-the-world Jim and Faithful Canine Companions Husky-Malamute mix Sid and Chow Chow-Pomeranian mix Lexi.   I love to garden, cook, bake, collect wine, and spend time on sewing and other crafts.  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'm having fun this year experimenting with various whole grains and whole grain flours in my baking, including pumpernickel rye.  My husband Jim says there is bread dough everywhere in the house!

I am a voracious reader (both books and newspapers), crossword puzzler, and Scrabble player.  I also collect Disney memorabilia, with particular fondness for the lovable donkey Eeyore.

I am passionate about my career.  I have 32 years of experiencing addressing Tax, Insurance, Annuity, Elder Financial Abuse, and Related Financial Matters for clients throughout the United States, who typically have technical or complex concerns.

 I focus my life on a few simple concepts:  Say no to negativity.  Be true to yourself.  Don't just stay positive, be positive!   I focus on living each day in the moment, not dwelling on the past, and planning for, but not obsessing about, the future.  I fill my days with activities that bring happiness and enrichment to my personal life and professional career.  I remind myself that each day is truly a gift, and there are so many matters and events in life you truly cannot control.
