Things I am: mother, wife, sister, daughter, compulsive reader, gardening addict, baker of elaborate cheesecakes, vegetable connoisseur, vintage cookbook collector, semicolon proponent, catless cat person, amateurish knitter, aficionado of Argentinian science fiction, digital native, professional writer, armchair political analyst, SEO consultant.

Things I have: a twice-exceptional child, a computer geek husband, a house in the Midwestern suburbs, an unusual name, less money than I need, less time than I want, more love than I deserve, more books than will fit on my shelves, a large kitchen garden, a Twitter account, an SEO consulting website, and writing gigs at MOMocrats and Care2
