About Me

Hi! I’m 33 years old & mom to two girls. I teach high school English, which I think in many ways influences my personality - I suppose I could describe myself as a grounded extrovert.

I love to read, write, craft, travel, & enjoy the outdoors. I live in a college town nestled in the mountains, so life always seems to have something to offer.

Favorite Crafts

I’m addicted to disc-bound planners. If this doesn’t seem like a craft to you, then you must not have fallen into the washi rabbit-hole.

I’m starting to experiment with clay pottery. I love paper crafting. I dabble in jewelry/beadwork.

Aesthetically, I love botanicals and florals. I prefer matte finishes on stickers/embellishments, but also love playing & experimenting with new styles. When it comes to kawaii, my style skews towards amigurumi / Studio Ghibli characters.

Favorite Books

This is almost impossible to complete, because I am constantly reading — sometimes with my daughters, sometimes related to work, and then of course for pleasure. My daughter’s name is inspired by TKAM, Herman Hesse is worth a repeat-read, and I think everyone should open their hearts to more poetry.

I am about to start ‘The Book of Longings’ by Sue Monk Kidd.

Favorite Movies

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington The Scarlet Pimpernel

My friends used to joke that I was ‘well read, but not well seen’, but the recent pandemic & Netflix have sorted that out for me.

Debra Messing is my spirit animal.

Favorite Television

I’ll admit it, I sometimes watch terrible reality TV. I equate it to a beach read - sometimes you just need some mindless distraction to rewind with a good cup of tea.

I’ve never turned down a historical drama, and I love the engagement of a good crime series. I've watched all of NCIS, and have a huge crush on Mark Harmon, despite his age. But let’s be honest with ourselves: the greatest TV show of all time is House. Long live Hugh Laurie!

I am as obsessed with Orange is the New Black as everyone else. I wish I was an Alex, but I admit I’m probably more of a Piper.

Travel

Israel - 2006

Denmark - twice in 2007

Bimini - 2010

France - a road trip through the country in 2013

Spain - 2016

India - 2017

Belize - 2018

I was scheduled to visit Greece this summer, so hopefully I’ll have another chance in the next few years.

Random Likes

I live in the mountains, but I love succulents and cacti. Maybe it's the emergence of this aesthetic on the scene in the past few years, but I actually have fond memories of sitting on my grandmother's front porch in the mountains of West Virginia as a child, being fascinated my her prickly cactus. She was a gardener - a large vegetable garden that provided food for the table, the most gorgeous flowers including a magnificent rhododendron bush - but something about the cactus amid all of the other greenery just seemed...intriguing.

Comment: Thank you! I have never felt the after shocks of an earthquake, oh my goodness I would be terrified! We did just have Hurricane Laura come through and make an everlasting impression. We were without power for 11 days. Thankful my house is still intact though so I can't complain much.
