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

Some things I’m loving this week include…

dates with Indy. We had two really nice walks this week.

carpooling with friends

Fortune Cookie Soap whipped cream samples

having a husband who can make the repairs our car needs to pass inspection

the rising support for the LGBTQ community and how little tolerance people have for bigotry. Even when we still find ourselves having to explain that enforcing basic human decency isn’t “policing someone’s beliefs,” it does seem like more people are accepting of gender and sexual fluidity than in the past. When I find myself having to mod hate spread by people in groups that they justify by their “beliefs,” which apparently trump others’ rights to exist, I do find more people vocal about not supporting those “beliefs” willing to speak up than I used to see.

my kid’s incredible creativity and humor

two new hens! Both are golden-laced Orpingtons and their names are Winnie and Matilda.

family time. Indy doesn’t have much overtime this year, which we are definitely feeling, but it’s nice to have him around more often, too.
