imageAnd so the adventure begins…

Hey there friends! My name is Jodi. I live in a quaint little river town in south Tennessee where I am a mom, animal care specialist, obedience trainer, artist, DIY and crafting enthusiast, warrior of a rare disease, blogger and basically Jill of all trades.

My life suddenly changed a few months back. I was active and loved hiking. I had a good job that I mostly enjoyed and things were going pretty well. Then my health took a turn and forced me to give up working and being my positive active self. I started questioning everything and wondered how I was going to get through this. I was losing myself.

And then one day it hit me…I needed to make some changes. My family needed me back. I needed to change my mindset. I needed to find a way to be productive and help others. And we needed a dog. ๐Ÿ™‚

An adorable fluff ball red merle Australian Shepherd puppy was just what we needed. We brought Paisley Dawn home at 7wks old and the adventure began.

Paisley’s Path is a project I came up with to share life experiences and inspiration to others that may be struggling just like I am. Along this path I will be sharing DIY projects and my love for creativity as well as tips and training secrets as I train Paisley to be a good citizen dog, emotional support and hiking partner. I may even throw in some awesome recipes, family activities and fashion finds here and there. The scenery along Paisley’s Path is ever changing, you never know what you may see. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Let Paisley and I be your guide on this journey to renewed joy of positive living!
