I am an Anne, a part-time do-gooder, full-time wife and mother who obsessively makes lists. I am a super organized, type-A, old soul who understands unconditional love since becoming a mother. I grew up in New Mexico and currently live in Minnesota. I like the pace of live in the midwest and the sensibility of the people, but deep down I connect better with hispanic culture than with Scandinavian. I make tamales every Christmas, prefer enchiladas to hot dish, and listen to salsa music while I knit. I am a former math teacher who factors telephone numbers on billboards in my head while driving. I am the wife of my best friend and am blessed to be the mother of my amazing son.
I have two very strong sides to my personality – the logical side and the creative side. I am a math nerd who delights in the absolution that solving a math problem provides. BUT, I also have this really creative force inside of me that yearns to get out. I express that through my decorating, knitting, parenting, wardrobe and now, through my writing.
I decided to start a blog for several reasons. I wanted to have a pastime to entertain myself. I wanted something that was uniquely mine, for better or for worse. And, I wanted a creative outlet that allowed me to be a little techie too. Lastly, I wanted to see if I was any good ~ at writing, at decorating, at sticking with something challenging.
Thank you for reading along. I hope that others glean some joy from my blog.
