What I’m doing with my life
I'm a librarian and technology teacher at an elementary school. I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling, live music, movies, art museums, going to the farmer's market, and spending time with family and friends.
I’m really good at
- Caring for the people in my life in thoughtful and generous ways
- Writing fiction, children's literature, to-do lists, and letters (I think letter writing is a lost art that I'm personally trying to reclaim it). :)
- Throwing a dinner party
- I make a mean chocolate chip cookie. :)
- I'm an excellent listener and I'm always there for my family and friends, whether they need to vent, cry, laugh seek advice or anything else.
