Ten Things About Me

  1. I’m married to a lovely fellow. We have an adorable and hilarious little girl. There are two geriatric Chihuahuas and a classy old lady cat who let us live here with them. I love them all like crazy.
  2. I’m fairly obsessed with Scandinavian everything.
  3. I have a B.A. in Anthropology. One day, I’d like to go back and get that PhD.
  4. I wanted to be Indiana Jones, a doctor, a ballerina and a writer… sometimes all at once. Always a work in progress.
  5. Every morning when I wake up, I think of everything that I’m thankful for before I get up. Sometimes I fall asleep again first, so I start over.
  6. I’m super impressed by polyglots. And by impressed by, I mean jealous of.
  7. Scotch. Single malt. Neat.
  8. Also, wine. Please and thank you.
  9. I love being in my thirties.
  10. A clean house, good food, great music and a cozy blanket make for a pretty super day.

      Hello my dears! You may not believe it, but I was just thinking about
      you two not even an hour before you were kind enough to leave me this
      sweet message! I miss you, too! I’ve technologically upgraded myself and
      am excited to be able to (finally) log in to WP and get back to
      business! Big sigh of relief.
