I'm a tBoulderite who has made her home in the south. I love to create things out of fabric and yarn, and I enjoy being challenged to focus less on myself and more on others. I've been married to the most amazing man in the world since 2008, and had my first little one in August 2010. In February of 2012, our family grew again when we adopted twin girls from Uganda. I also get to work as a Regional Manager for Goodwill helping adults with disabilities become work-ready. I've traveled and lived all over the world and love the adventure and newness of learning about and exploring new places and cultures. This blog was originally started in 2005 to document my experiences living in Egypt and has morphed a bit as my life has changed and grown.
Thanks for visiting!
