About Me

As I age it gets harder and harder to contain my life in words. Single words, sure. But how do you organize those words? What’s most important? So many variables, and none of them linear. I need a 3-D model to describe myself in some sort of strange hierarchicalย fashion. But I don’t feel like pulling out the foam balls and glue gun, and heaven knows I’d never be able to find the right color paint. For lack of a better option, and in no particular order: a little bit about me.



I’m in my late 20’s.ย That feels weird to say.

I have a four year old daughter and two dogs.

My husband is my favorite person on earth, he and I met in high school, but didn’t start dating until late into college.

I love doing crafty things.

I love camping, hiking, and kayaking.

I had cancer once upon a time. It sucked, but I’m better now.
