About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Western WA
Introduction I am a whole food cooking, swing pushing, boo-boo kissing, paper crafting, photo taking, homeschooling, creative sewing, attachment parenting, woodworking, guitar playing, gardening, constantly reading, artistic and lovely full time, granola lovin' mama to my four sweetlings, Alex (7/96), Cyan (7/01), Logan (1/07) and baby Luke (2/11). Married to my best friend and my hero in Kevlar. While raising my children and living in suburbia I find it my personal challenge to live as deliberately as possible and show them how to do the same. My life is truly beautiful... with little pitfalls, dirty diapers, and broken jars of peaches thrown in for color.
Favorite Movies Everafter, Serenity, Cinderella Man, Seabuisket, basically anything well written and has great dialog. I really do like movies about the depression era however. They have a special place in my heart.
Favorite Music Guitar heavy, light family friendly music. KT Tunstall, Nora Jones, Andy McKee, Jack Johnson, even liking a bit of Jason Mraz at the moment.
Favorite Books Robart Jordan's Wheel of Time... going through it for a third time right now. Hows that for mindless entertainment? Brandon Sanderson has actually done an good job.
