Who’s that girl?
You ever see one of those really awesome introduction pages?
It always feels kind of impersonal. Like yes, I have curly hair, I’m married, and I have a daughter. I think that I’m more than a listing of facts. For instance, I love the way that rain sounds coming down on the roof, but I hate damp and cold weather. I love full moons and staying up late in to the night, sleeping all day – but I feel out of balance if it I don’t see the sun for more than a day or two. I love to cook and hate to do dishes. I stay at home to take care of my family, although since I spend atleast half that time or more running errands, I dare say “stay at home” is something of a misnomer.
I had my daughter when I was very young, and in fact am now at an age where most of my age-peers are just starting to think about having their first kid. Even better than that, my husband and I are probably going to have another one here in the next couple of years. My husband and I got married in the fall of 2007 in a whirlwind two week long engagement. To be fair though, we’d been living together for 3 years at the time.
I try to be enviromentally friendly – to varying degrees of success. I joined a CSA called Farm Fresh To You in February of 2009, and it really changed the way I think about food and cooking. Most of my blog centers around my weekly fruit and veggie box and what I do with it, with occassional posts about life, traveling and being Pagan.
Yes, I’m a Pagan, and if you don’t know for sure what that is, I recommend you research it before jumping to overblown Hollywood movie ideals of what that means. No, I don’t sacrifice babies, drink blood by moonlight, or ride on a broom through the air. I’ve never felt the need for a crusade and I don’t really care what religion you are as long as you don’t try to convert or impose your particular ideals on me.
I’m part of a circle of wonderful ladies, who I feel very blessed to call Sisters – it’s my first time ever in a group setting, and strangely, I’m finding that not only do I really enjoy it but I am pretty good at it. I also run a networking group for Pagans in the area called Diablo Valley Pagans. It’s a small group so far, but we have a monthly coffee night which is a lot of fun.
I buy second hand whenever I can – perusing thrift stores, Craigslist and eBay for the things that I can. It’s not cheap, it’s frugal – and environmentally responsible. Plus it’s fun. I’m also a big fan of homemade and handmade things, though – especially pottery.
I’m a Democrat with socialist leanings. I believe in a woman’s right to choose, a gay’s rights to marry and stricter gun control. I’d rather pay higher taxes if it helps out those less fortunate – but only those who are willing to put forth the effort to help themselves as well. There is a difference between a hand out and a hand up.
I enjoy all kinds of music – and am probably one of the only people I know that has Enya, Britney Spears, Dr. Dre and Disturbed in my iPod. I grew up in the 90′s and still listen to both hip hop and rock from that time period. When I was a teen I got in to trouble and drove my poor mother to distraction, fortunately I outgrew it and have come out the other side a better person for it. Although, I’m sure my mom’s enjoying her self now, watching me struggle with my teen. Hopefully, my daughter won’t ever be as bad as I was.
4 shots of espresso is generally all I need in the morning to start my day right, and one of these days I’ll get a grinder for my espresso machine and the coffee snobbery will flow as elegantly as the crema. I blame my husband for my coffee addiction. When we first got together I tried to convince him to give it up – instead he got me hooked.
I have a sweet tooth. Okay, I have several – and the waistline to prove it, but atleast I’m (mostly) proportionate. I’m married to a man who thinks I’m the sexiest woman alive, though – and you have no idea how lucky that makes me feel. I think that chocolate is all the proof I need that there’s a benevolent force for good in the universe – but the fact that it’s fattening just proves they have a sadistic sense of humor as well.
My favorite color is blue and if I weren’t careful I’d probably end up over using it in everything from clothing to interior design. I enjoy arts and crafts, a good fantasy novel, and still think that Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of the best television shows that ever aired. Ever.
I’m married to a man who I love so much it’s almost like a cliché – all more than life itself and stars in the sky. It’s corny, but still true. And if I’m really, really lucky – he’ll never figure out that he could do so much better than me.
