I’m a knitter and a runner. I’m a sports fan (Chicago Cubs, Iowa Hawkeyes, Chicago Bears). When I grow up I’m going to own a sheep farm and spin my own yarn. For now I work full time in higher education and I’m a blogger for The Real Moms of Eastern Iowa. I live in Iowa with my husband, my daughter, and my cat. I buy too many shoes. I drink Coke and eat too much candy. Life is good.
