Gwen Xavier: Crafting a Life of Balance and Joy

Hello, and a warm welcome to “Finding Sanity in Our Crazy Life”! I’m Gwen Xavier, the driving force and creative spirit behind this blog. As a culinary aficionado and an experienced mixologist, I’ve spent years honing my skills in these areas. I am mostly self-taught, but I do have some good formal education.

In our family, we’re always on the lookout for exciting adventures and fresh experiences, whether in our kitchen, craft room, or during our travels. I’m a firm believer in the power of new cultures, flavors, and ideas as tools for growth and connection.
