I am a 40-something wife, mother, sister, and daughter. My hobbies include not sleeping and collecting rejection letters. I work full-time in the environmental sciences, managing people a lot smarter than me. This is my “alternate plan” in action. I was supposed to be living off my art, my music, my fiction by now (no…really). It’s a good job. But I haven’t completely given up on the other.
I have 3 young sons; 2 who grew inside me were the best surprises of my life and one who was adopted from South Korea. I am humbled and honored to be a mother at all, let alone this late in life. Yes, there is pee, and pooh, and puke involved, but it’s all worth it. Becoming a parent was like suddenly living in color when I’d previously been living in black and white – and didn’t even know. No words are powerful enough to describe the love and wonder.
My husband, Mr. Coffee, is a stay-at-home Dad. He works part time in the environmental sciences and was adopted domestically. He’s a real cutie too. He’s very private so that’s about all you are going to hear about him.
I am a geeky girl with Southern roots. True to these roots, I am fiercely loyal to my friends and family and I wonder if you’re not eating my cooking because you don’t love me. I live in the beautiful, magestic west, right in the shadow of the Rockies.
