About

Hello, Hello! Let’s see, what do yall  want to know?

I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Cultural Anthropology that I do nothing with… aside from that whole getting a good job and growing as a person bit.

I like cats and big dogs. Because little dogs… just get a cat, you know?

I love fishing and camping and kayaking but I hate nothing more than loading boats after a kayak trip. I do it… but I would pay ALL the money to not have to.

I love cooking- which until I was 25 would have bet good money was not a sentence I would ever say.

I like gardening too- herbs, vines, roses… “You know. Flowers and shit.”

One time someone asked my husband how old I was and he said: “Thirty-four. But she likes to pretend she’s older” and he was exactly right.

I can assume from that last fact that you can tell I’m married- which I’ve been ridiculously happy about for over thirteen years now. My husband actually told me he was going to marry me on our first date- and it’s all just gotten more terribly romantic from there.

We have three daughters, 10, 8, and 1 and I love nothing more than watching them turn into themselves over the years.

I try to maintain a shoe collection of 15 and under. Ideal would be 10 pairs- but it’s really just an arbitrary number I set for myself to shoot for. Why? There are people in this world who cook in a hubcap over a fire… and you have how many pairs of black shoes again? That’s why.

I don’t drive a minivan.

Or a Lexus.

Or give a shit about scrapbooking.

Or napkin rings.

Other than that I’ll just say I have green eyes, a freckle on my toe, and a sense of humor like one of my front teeth. That is to say- a bit off.

Thanks for reading!
