So, about me…  Hmmm.  Who am I?  I’m a lot of different things.  Currently I’m the mother of two teenagers that I homeschooled until 2 years ago.  But also, I’m a former military officer, married to a pilot, zookeeper of 2 dogs and 3 cats.  I have an MA from Savannah College of Art and Design in Historic Preservation so I love old buildings and historic towns, though I suspect it’s going to be a while before I actually do anything with all that. Which is okay.

I’m passionate about many things, but I especially enjoy cooking.  I LOVE to feed people good food.  I also am a bit fanatical about travel, and though I’ve been to many places there are so many more I’d like to see.  I’m an environmentalist and a Christian (yes, you can indeed be both) – I’m especially zealous about protecting the beauty and health of this amazing world we’ve been entrusted with.  As a family, we’d pretty much rather be outdoors than anywhere else (though I draw the line at camping.  I will happily hike all day, but then I prefer a hot bath and a real bed).

I speak a couple of different languages, just for fun, and I get teary eyed over poetry and books. And movies.

I used to sing in a band, and I don’t mean when I was a kid.  I mean a few years ago.  We were awesome, if I do say so myself.

In my spare time, whatever that may be, I love to paint.  Between gardening and painting and cooking, I can ruin a manicure quicker than you’d believe.  My Southern girl training apparently did not sink in very well.  And I’m completely, totally good with that.  Wait, no- I’m THANKFUL for that…

The more I try to educate my children, the more I learn about how much more I need to learn.  I am a work in progress, and I always will be.  After all, the coolest people I know still don’t know what they want to be when they grow up.
