I was born in a smaller town in Eastern Oregon. Humbly raised by two amazing parents who loved their kids and each other. I was taught about resourcefulness, creativity, recycling, hard work, patience and happiness.
I met my husband in high school. He was cute, witty and a drummer in the marching band. I fell hard. We dated for two years before he went to college.
Then I went to college at BYU-Idaho for a year. We visited a lot that year and decided the distance was just too great (9 hours). I transferred to Portland Community to finish my degree in Ophthalmic Medical Technology. We got married the week after graduating.
We moved to Chicago, he got a law degree, I worked, we got a dog, we had a kid, I retired, we lived in three different apartments in 5 years. We moved to Columbus, Ohio for a year and moved to the Washington DC are in 2010 and had another kid two years later. I LOVE living here. Although it is a long trip back to Oregon to visit our families we love the life we have here.
This is where I record my creative endeavors to share with the world.
