About me

Gender FEMALE
Occupation designer & mom
Introduction A few years ago, I lamented that I didn't have any hobbies. I worked. Now, with a new home and nascent garden, cooking exploits, adorable kiddo and husband to keep me, well, busy... I can't imagine such a condition. I still work some, but my free-time 'want to-do' list is long and that makes me happy. I'm a chronicler by nature, and this blog is my space for sharing thoughts, tastes and ideas. Let me know what you think!
