I just put in a bunch of raised beds with veggies, an herb bed, fruit trees, a metal rain tank and an awesome metal fence. And chickens. One of our hens turned out to be a roster, but his name is still Gretchen.
It's very peaceful to sit in the hammock reading at sunset with the chickens scratching around.

I work most of the week outside of Austin which makes me really appreciate what an amazing place Austin is!!! At this job I do get to work with family, and this is what makes the job worth it. I will be working this job from Austin full time soon, but until then I commute. I just got set up with Audible (audio books) so at least I'll be absorbing some information during the drive. I'm excited.
My other job is a local biz in Austin that I started 5 years ago. I'm so lucky to work with an amazing group of people on this and we are about to launch our product line. On the weekends I'm coordinating launching the online store, copy for the site and labels, researching fda regulations for the labels, putting together contracts with our manufacturer, etc. It's ton of fun.

I'm not so great a slowing down and relaxing, but I'm working on that.

I'm looking for someone kind, confident, witty, intense, active, and intelligent. Confidence is not to be confused with taking yourself too seriously... Vanity, cigarettes, and dog allergies are :(. A happy hour margarita, fish tacos and a Sunday morning run are :). I love stimulating conversations. Teach me something new. Physically and intellectually active is an awesome combo. Saving the world is also a huge plus- who else is going to do it?
