I am a mother, wife, lawyer, writer, designer, maker, and dreamer. I live in the city in which I was born. In the arc between here, there, and here I have lived in 7 other cities in every corner and the dead middle of the United States.

I serve up occasionally pithy musings at twitter. My eco-friendly fabric designs, printables, and paper goods are available in my shop. I got on the life list bandwagon last year.
You know, I bet it wouldn't kill you to write me once in a while. I mean, unless it's too much trouble. I see how busy you are.
