Who Am I?

I am a thirty-something redhead.  By day, I work in marketing and design.  By night, I am mom to two basset hounds and wife to Catch.  I legally married my wife in 2008 during the brief window in which same-sex marriage was legal in California.  We were married on the anniversary of our first date.

I have been told that I have too many hobbies, but the truth is that I have a horrid attention span and so things capture my interest in fits.  Mostly, I dabble in:

  • Knitting
  • Cooking / Baking
  • Photography
  • Gardening
  • Wine
  • Writing
  • Listening to audio books

I have tried cross stitch, crochet, scrapbooking, and probably a million other things, but when it comes down to it, there are only so many hours in a day.

I live in Los Angeles and our back yard is larger than our entire indoor living space.  It’s hard on closet space, but wonderful for the garden.  Fortunately, this is southern California, and we can live outside year round as long as there’s a fire pit out back (there is.)

Life’s not all sunshine and roses, though.  I am an absolute tornado at home, destroying everything in my path and never pausing long enough to pick up my dirty socks. I’m not on speaking terms with the vacuum cleaner, and I’m pretty sure the dryer is not my biggest fan.  In a perfect world, I would have a cleaning lady—in reality, I have Catch, and if she trips over my shoes in the living room one more time she’ll probably wring my neck.
