I grew up mostly in Ohio, in a wonderful wacky family of five kids. I went to BYU, served a mission in Korea, and married my cute husband in 1996. We spent nine months teaching English in Korea and then went to Newfoundland for three years for his grad school. Now we're in Washington state. We celebrated the birth of Baby Kate two days after Christmas 2004, and welcomed our son Andy (Anders) on the same day four years later. I design digital scrapbook products and paint the occasional mural.
