Who I Am  

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm a 29-year-old mom of an energetic, precocious toddler in sunny Arizona! I'm returning to school to pursue a degree in Sustainable Horticulture and Sustainable Food Systems. My favorite hobbies are hiking, doing crafts with my daughter, and perusing the shelves of Trader Joe's.

Interesting Factoid

I can fold a fitted sheet faster and more neatly than most people can fold a flat sheet.
