About Me

Wife to Zach, mama to Zoe and Eliza. We also have a Great Dane, Olive (the best and worst dog). They are my very favorites.

Zach and I were set up by a very dear mutual friend the year we graduated from college. He’s in the Army, so I follow him around a lot. So far I’ve followed him from Georgia to Virginia to Germany to South Carolina. Our dog and kids come too.

Before kids, I worked in a highly technical role as a senior consult at a software company for 6 years, including one year as the only American in the company’s German branch (which was one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done). Now I stay at home with our girls (also one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done, but easily the best too).

I feel very strongly about grace, the power of prayer, and Philippians 2:12-13 (working out my salvation with fear and trembling).

I can slalom waterski and drive a 5-speed, which I’ve been assured are important life skills to possess, but I rarely use either. Kind of like algebra. 

I’m an avid reader and occasional writer. Writing helps me process my thoughts, record my memories, and a lot of times just keeps me amused. I feel compelled to write like some people feel compelled to cook or work out or do something Pinterest-ing. It clears my head, invigorates me, and makes me happy.

I hate the winter, with the exception of fresh snow. Being cold both frustrates and saddens me.

I think holiday celebrations should be just a little bit over the top (particularly Valentine's Day). 

If I had to choose one meal to eat every day for the rest of my life, it would be a bowl of Cheerios. 

I'm an Atlanta native and a University of Georgia graduate. Georgia will always feel like coming home.
