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 wrote book about Celebrating Dia de los Muertos (Mexican Day of the Dead holiday)- found here
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 fourteen years now. My husband actually told me he was going to marry me on our first date- and it’s just gotten more terribly romantic from there.
We have three daughters, 14, 11, and 4 and I love nothing more than watching them turn into themselves over the years.
I try to maintain a shoe collection of 20 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 crap 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; which is to say- a bit off.
Thanks for reading!
