Born and raised as a Georgia peach,
and then became a California Girl for grad school.
Coming to San Francisco felt like coming home, and I've made damn sure to put down roots here so I had a good excuse to stay. My fiance and I live in a postage stamp-sized place with our two dogs, Patches and Eli.

I'm more of a homebody than I like to admit, but it's because I really do enjoy the things my house has to offer. Namely, a computer that feeds my internet addition (email! blogs! eBay! Craigslist! and so much more!) and a cozy craft space I carved out of a corner in our basement storage space.
|Yay for colorful, relatively well-organized creative spaces, even if they're tiny!|
I love spending time in my craft space, aka the "tiny time machine." I don't know how it happens, but going down there seems to bend the time-space continuum such that by the time I get upstairs, an ungodly number of hours have passed by without warning. I'm sure that's the reason, right? I mean, the only other explanation is that something about being down there means that my projects take 3x as long as expected to complete. And I know for sure that's not the case. Because I know for sure that I can be both ridiculously detail-oriented AND amazingly efficient. Happens all the time.
... in my mind.
Additional fun details about me: I'm optimistic, funny, and love to be social. I have really wonderful friends. I think I'm pretty non-traditional. I love my amazing fiance more every day. I truly enjoy my work. I love ellipses and parentheses and hyphens (pretty much all the punctuation marks that will let me continue with ridiculously run-on sentences without the point being completely lost in all my wordiness). And my fiance says that I should list my hobbies as "planning the future" and "running the numbers" (not mutually exclusive).
Not enough? You want a picture, too? Geez... so pushy! Okay okay fine - just spare me the critiques, k?
