I shake you warmly by the hand, and welcome you to my bio! Currently a writer, artist, and freelance explorer, I have played many other roles. I've managed a restaurant, debated across the country, taught children in Spain, run a handful of student organizations and retreats, served as the Editor/Producer/Citizen Journalist Manager for a, sung in choir for many years, volunteered with dozens of organizations and interned with a few, home-schooled a relative, cared for many a pet, and protested a thing or two. I am also married to my dreamy gearhead high school sweetheart, and together we are unschooling with our 10-year-old tenacious and hilarious daughter. Aside from my main passions of writing, art, reading, and generally being as ambitious as possible, I love to play with my daughter, learn new things, have date nights with The Husband, and highlight anything within my reach.

Things I Love Thursday

Stick with me here, team. I need all the help I can get this week!

Still fighting an infection this week, plus Wood Sprite and I are having allergy battles on top of it (hers are much worse than mine right now). Not fun! Still, here are some things I’m loving…

Our library’s summer reading programs. We just finished our minimums and received very cool prizes like water bottles, books and meal coupons.

Good friends who help you when you’re sick!

A new picnic table! Wood Sprite loves it SO much.

A fixed plumbing issue with minimal cost. Whew.

Air conditioning.

What are you loving this week?
