I am a Midwestern American, currently living in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. I am an openly out joyful atheists with a penchant for science, literature, travel, theater, photography, studying all fields of learning, except for math which gives me hives, reading, blogging, and listening to the secrets of my children while we walk on the beach or cuddle under the blankets. I am an optimist, a lover-not-a-fighter, a person who thinks a bit too much and is a bit too sensitive... I am a homeschooling mum of two children (ages 16 and 12) and the wife of an amazing man. I love sweatpants. I believe in the inherent goodness of all people.
