I am Mom to three, Wifey to one, 3rd Grade Teacher to 25, and Partyware Designer. I love photography and interior design...both jobs I think about pursuing on almost a daily basis, but am happy doing them as hobbies for friends and family for now. I prefer laughter and Diet Coke over sleep for energy...though this doesn't make my husband OR my mother happy. I live in Minnesotan suburbia, though I dream of returning to my rural roots.
