about me

My Family

Me, E, and Little K

I’m a farm kid from the land of green and gold (Go, Pack, go!). I moved to Minnesota for college and met my husband E. He’s a self-proclaimed computer geek that wooed me with Humphry the Bear videos and trips to see the Minnesota Orchestra. He challenges me every day to be the best me possible and I can’t imagine my life without him. Love you, E!

(If you don’t know Humphrey, get to know him today. My favorite cartoon ever!)

A boy and his dog.

Our pup Waldo is a champ for dealing with such a energetic little kid everyday. Little K loves him for it though and asks for the doggy every morning – sometimes even before he asks for Daddy!

We have a son, Little K, who was born in August 2012. He has stolen my heart and shown me what unconditional love really feels like. I fall in love with those big blue eyes and chubby cheeks 100 times a day.

My little penguin.

Both E and I work outside the home, though we’re lucky enough to have flexible schedules and home offices. E works at a tech start-up and I work at a trade organization in communications. On any given day you can find us toiling around in the yard, goofing off with Little K, or trying a new recipe in the kitchen.
