One-Line Bio

Just a girl living life after grace


I'm a pretty laid back gal. I love to walk in the woods by the river (the mighty mississippi). I am usually up for a game of Ultimate - and I aspire to be a great runner... aspire is the key word there...

I know it's super cheesy, but I love my husband. I love to spend time with him, curl up with him in front of the fire, go on walks and drives with him, and cook with him. He's the best.

After Sam I'd say I love my job. I'm a Youth Director in BP and it's awesome. I love hanging out with kids, doing stupid things (mashed potatoes!!) and being around to see them grow in maturity and faith. My job RULES.

I'm a fan of the indie/random music persuasion. My perennial faves are Nickel Creek, Derek Webb, Relient K, The Wailin Jenny's, Crowder, The Weepies, Ok Go, Eastmountainsouth, The Fray, Allman Brothers, Coldplay, U2... etc... just to name a few of them.

I watch some TV, mostly ABC and then after that it's the office, and the Colbert Report.

Movies either have to make me swoon (hey I'm a girl) or make me think. So faves like Pride and Prejudice will never go away.. but i still like ones like Constant Gardener, Invisible Children, Thank You for Smoking, Mad Hot Ballroom, Shut Up and Sing, Who Killed the Electric Car, Inconvenient Truth, etc...

At the top of my booklist - "Irresistible Revolution" by Shane Claiborne. Read it peoples!!!
My all time favorite books - Red Tent, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Anne of Green Gables books, and randomly, Freakanomics - it was SO interesting.
