I grew up in Indiana, got married, and then moved all around the country with my husband and two kids. We somehow ended up in Alaska, where I vow to stay forever, because I never want to move again.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Journalism from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a JD from IU School of Law-Indianapolis. I have worked in the fields of journalism and law, and I have also been very lucky to spend time at home with my kids.

I love to go outside and play in Alaska. My daughter says my favorite thing in the world would be to almost get attacked by an animal, and then take a picture of that animal. She is probably right, if you emphasize the word ALMOST. I have photographed moose and bears in my backyard, which I think is the coolest thing ever.

I also like to read, and occasionally, I bake and take pictures of stuff that I bake. If you keep coming back to this site, you'll see those pictures, and read the recipes to go with them.

I am inspired by many other women bloggers, whose sites I have linked to in my Blogroll. I hope you visit their sites, too, and see why I feel compelled to join in their company.
