I’m a happily married mother of two. Been with my husband for more than half of my life now, and it keeps getting better every year. Our daughters were born in 1998 and 2001.
I’m a cradle Catholic who was a pretty crummy Catholic for quite some time, but I’ve been in conversion for years and do my very best to assent to Holy Mother Church. My wonderful and amazing husband converted in 2006, the year our older daughter made her First Holy Communion.
I majored in Deaf Education and Elementary Education at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, and we lived in Central Florida until 2004, when my husband’s job transferred our family to Virginia. I’ve been homeschooling our children from the beginning, and I think I do an okay job in spite of my education degree.
Aside from God, the Church, and my family, I love reading, traveling (with my family!), and being as Hobbity as I can manage. Oh, I love cooking, too. (Hate the cleanup, though.) I’m working on being a better photographer; I’ve been taking my girls’ portraits for a couple of years now because I decided I could do a better job than the “pros” at the local department store’s photography studio.
I’m studying to become a Lay Dominican in hopes that such action will help me grow in holiness. There’s more on why I decided to do that here.
I tend to tweet too much, but take occasional breaks to keep myself from being too addicted to it.
I’m working on writing a book, because I’ve discovered that I’m sort of a writer. How ’bout that?
