About me

Industry Architecture
Occupation Designer
Location Carbondale, Colorado, United States
Introduction A year ago, I could easily describe myself. Now that I am a new mama, I am just beginning to become acquainted with who I am becoming. At 24 years old, life has finally become real. Up until now I was just kind of going through the motions, doing what was expected: graduating high school, going to college to pursue a prestigious career as an architect, get knocked up, postpone graduation, and move in with my boyfriend to start a family. Well, after the whole study architecture thing, the whole "life" plan kind of veered off course! My boyfriend and I packed up, and moved from Aspen down the valley to Carbondale to become what the locals (formally ourselves) like to call DVT or downvalley trash. Carbondale, a town where the un-uber-wealthy people can almost afford to live, and raise a family. Eventually, I will finish up my degree, and become a designer. Moms keep telling me that it gets so much easier. I lie to moms that have younger babies than me, too.
Interests cry-offs with my baby girl- I win every time, making inappropriate jokes and then acting perplexed by people's less-than-impressed-completely-offended reactions to said jokes, racking my brain trying to discover a halloween costume that girls can't make sexy...mustard! Nope there goes a bottle of mustard with cleavage that puts my breast-feeding chest to shame, pointing and laughing at ridiculous characters prancing the streets of Aspen until I look down and notice my leaky boobs have soaked through my shirt yet again, and appetizers- at most restaurants the appies are the best thing they offer.
Favorite Movies Oh please let me start loving Disney movies
Favorite Music Oh please let me start being able to stomach children's songs
Favorite Books Actually, kids books are AWESOME! I looooove the beautiful pictures and simplicity of it all- life is just so neat and tidy and wonderful in kid's books-and they really get young imaginations firing
