BlogHer Original Post


I'm a writer, a reader, and a permanent student, entering year three of a PhD program in literature and history.  I'm a happy wife and a proud auntie, and I have a family spread all over the globe, from London to Cuba to Papua New Guinea.  I love books, Neil Diamond, college football, baking, the Bar Method, cheese, the golden age of Hollywood, shoes, and jazz, in no particular order.  I believe in God, and I believe He is good, even when it doesn't look like it.  And if I have one goal in all of this, it's figuring out how not to lose my soul in busyness - to live thoughtfully, meaningfully, and joyfully.  Especially joyfully.

Somehow, my blog manages to be about all of these things, and a few more besides.  I love to make new friends, so if you stop by, please say hello!
