Hey Friends! I’m Patti,

Life isn’t supposed to be withered by stress. We have to mix the bitter and sweet moments to create a balanced & meaningful life.

When I taught second grade, I set up a “Peace Place.” A comfy cozy area where students could cuddle on the shaggy rug with stuffed animal and a good book. The Peace Place was a space where they could go at any time, when they were frustrated with class or their classmates. They could go to the Peace Place and get some peace. Sometimes, as an adult we need to carve out time to get some peace in our lives. A moment to recalibrate and refresh. This is why I created Sweet Butter Harmony. I’m constantly trying mold what work/life balance is for me, so I can live a meaningful life. Just being a women can be A LOT. Life isn’t easy, but it shouldn’t be withered by stress. We were made to thrive and live our BEST LIFE!
