I am a married woman in my early 30s who's passions include sewing, resin crafting, computers and computer history, space/astronomy, animals, and DIY projects. I moved to Victoria, BC from rural Ohio in 2008 when I was 19, met my husband in 2014, and married him on April 1st, 2018. We don't have children yet, to be honest we are struggling with infertility so I started sewing baby clothes for other people's children as a way to deal with that until we can afford to see a fertility clinic and hopefully get some answers. I do have two lovely sweet cats that I rescued as kittens, Sigma and Phi, who are named after the main characters in the video game I was playing at the time because I thought their personalities matched the characters so well (and to this day, I can't say i was wrong!) We also have two elderly rats, Merida and Barbara (Merida got her name because the first thing she did when we brought her home was walk up to Phi and nose boop her. She has NO FEAR. Barbara got her name because she has a marking on her chest that very much resembles the bat symbol) We're honestly just a couple of nerds trying to get by in life and taking things one step at a time.
There are no known food allergies in the house, we'll eat almost anything other than eggplant or squash. We're not vegan or vegetarian but we are interested in trying vegan and vegetarian recipes. I'm a certified spice nut, my husband not so much but he can stand a little spice. We LOVE tea and trying new teas, and we drink a LOT of coffee.
I've recently been diagnosed with diabetes, so while we will try out regular dessert/cookie recipes (I often make regular recipes and freeze most of them so I'm not tempted to overindulge) recipes that have an option to use stevia instead will always get a heart because it shows you cared enough to check my profile and find out what I can eat. That kind of extra effort is super appreciated!
