My self-summary
It hasn’t been easy to write a summary about myself even though I write for a living. When it comes to talking about myself in a real way, I become shy. I’m a mass of contradictions, but somehow it all makes sense. I am shy but yet am a great hostess who engages everyone at a party. I write a snarky blog but I have a soft squishy side that also writes about prairie skills and heartfelt topics. I love amazing meals but I love mac 'n' cheese far too much to call myself a foodie. I'm a good Midwestern girl but I fancy myself a city slicker. I love, love, love the smell of the great outdoors (is anything better than the smell of wet pine during a hike?) but love my creature comforts (hello, bathtub!). But here's the thing: I have a great heart, I take care of myself and love my life, and I'm working on myself in ways both scary and empowering. And I'd love to tell you all about this when we get together.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m learning to enjoy life, breathe, and be kind to myself and others as much as possible. I’m also writing books and blogs and articles that blow my skirt up. I’m really fortunate to write about stuff I like (i.e. I don’t do any technical writing) and lucky for me, I keep finding new interests I dig.
I’m really good at
Making things
Parallel parking
Thinking outside the box
Figuring out gratuities and discounts in my head
Taking great photos in a photo booth
Asking great questions
Packing a suitcase
Noticing the details
Finding or making the perfect gift
The first things people usually notice about me
My look of intelligence (let's be honest, the glasses help). And I love meeting people and have an easy, curious manner with anyone I come into contact with, and I think that comes across as well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Where to start? Well, I love things both high- and low-brow. Some literary favorites include The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, anything by Malcolm Gladwell, Rob Sheffield, Chuck Klosterman, Erik Larson, and Miss Jane Austen, Rules of Civility, PD James mysteries, literary nonfiction, Just My Type, Atonement, The Shadow of the Wind, The Hunger Games trilogy and the Harry Potter saga (kid lit is terrific these days).

Movies: Moonrise Kingdom, The Usual Suspects, Die Hard, Sunset Boulevard, Midnight in Paris, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, Shadow of a Doubt, Working Girl, Grosse Pointe Blank, Better Off Dead.

Music: I love me some Ryan Adams, Neko Case, Joni Mitchell, Bon Jovi, Lyle Lovett, The Decemberists, Hall & Oates, Fitz and the Tantrums, Adele.

Shows: The Newsroom, Sherlock (I'm mad for Martin Freeman), Girls, Mad Men, most things on Bravo (I own my cheese), Scandal, The Daily Show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Colbert Report. I have a lot of series queued up on Netflix.

Food: Pulled pork from Bitterroot, fish and chips from Toby's Tavern, crack chicken from Buddha Ruska, sushi from Mashiko, Mexican from the food truck by Mud Bay, Whidbey Island pies, migas from Portage Bay Cafe, ramen from Momofuku Noodle Bar (swoon).
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Little stuff that doesn’t matter. I've been working on stilling my mind, as I have a tendency toward obsessive thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner with a quality person or maybe cleaning my home and writing. I love waking up to a clean crib on a Saturday morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Do we actually think by asking this question that we’re going to get a genuine answer? For me, the most private thing I will admit has to have a trusting person with whom to share it.
