I’m the big sister. The older sister. Though, depending on the setting, spectators often disagree. I haven’t quite figured out why this is, but perhaps it’s the teacher in me that brings out certain childish behaviors (and, more often, comments)…but overall, I am the more mature one…more wisdomous, if you will. I am, at the core, an old soul.

I currently live in New Orleans. After leaving our hometown at age 27, my husband and I have ping-ponged back and forth between here and Chicago. This is 100% dictated by our career. We’re both teachers turned school administrators who are always trying to move up. We plan to return to Chicago for good in a few years…I have much to share about both cities…each one holds a very special, specific and different part of my heart. We have been married for 2 years. No kids, except for our 3½ year-old English bulldog, Jackson (aka Monkey)…here he is as a baby in our first NOLA apartment.
Many of my interests & hobbies are pretty predictable for a 32 year-old woman:
- Love love love reading. Most genres. When work keeps me from reading “real” books, audio versions keep me company on the morning commute.
- Could not possibly narrow down my music interests, but a few artists that I adore, and that set me far apart from Meggie, are: Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, and Dave Brubeck. Our late grandmother is to thank (miss you, grandma!). She shaped much of who I am today.
