About

Things to know about me:

  • Almost all photos on my blog are taken with my trusty Nikon D40 and 18-55 kit lens.  I love my camera and highly recommend it to any enthusiastic amateur.
  • I’m married to Jeff, who’s currently in law school.  The day after we moved in together, we adopted two cats.  The day after we attended an Obama rally (coincidence), we adopted a dog.  At some point we’ll have kids, who we’ll call “Hooplings” because that’s cute.
  • I have pink cowboy boots that I wear at least once a week, which make frequent guest appearances here on the blog.   I love them.  In fact, I love all my boots more than a person probably should love inanimate objects.
  • Once in a while I’ll post a recipe on here.  I’m a pollo-lacto vegetarian (meaning chicken, dairy, and fish is a-OK with me!), and I firmly believe in wholesome ingredients, simple foods and everyday indulgence.  I avoid almost all preservative-filled “convenience” items like the plague.  Baking is my favorite, and homemade bread is my specialty.
  • I alternate between periods of knitting furiously and stashing furiously, and with any luck they balance one another out.
  • I have strong hippie-ish leanings.  But I’m also a little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n roll.    I’m just…myself.  I defy stereotypes, including the “i-defy-stereotypes” stereotype.
  • I can knit, crochet, sew, piece quilts, quilt quilts, cross-stitch, and many other miscellaneous crafts.  I can NOT embroider.  I’ve tried.  My grandma laughed at me, it was so bad.

But in the short-term, just know this:
