About me

Industry Publishing
Occupation writer/student
Introduction I'm the kind of person who wrestles with big, complex, unsolvable problems and makes jokes about it in order to happy and somewhat sane. I hate multiple choice questions, love the color periwinkle and pray for peace, love, freedom and an America where "Bush" refers to pleasant, chubby green shrubs. I share my life with a wonderful, amazing guy who is currently a med student, and three fabulous kids who make life crazy, exhausting and utterly worth it. A little bit of the time I'm a seminary student. The rest of the time I'm other things: mom, woman, original thinker, artist, storyteller, writer, stone-soup impromptu chef, book flirt. Person. A disciple of Love, baby.

Why don't you ever wear a scarf? It doesn't need to be cold outside for your neck to feel naked.

I keep trying to talk myself into scarfs, but it seems perhaps I like my neck naked...
