II'm a 30-something wife and working mother of one, a darling toddler named Alexandra. I'm an unpublished writer who hopes to one day change that, I'm an amateur yet enthusiastic cook, a crappy crafter, and a smart ass who falls down a lot, especially in the numerous puddles of dog-dribbled water in the kitchen. I enjoy vigorous exercise, especially when it comes in the form of self-inflicted bouts of torture such as the Warrior Dash, and as soon as Alexandra starts running, Toddler Dashes. My favorite color is red, my favorite book is Stardust, and my favorite person is my tall husband Todd. He calls me pups.
