I live in Minnesota with my husband and cocker spaniel, am currently earning a master's in theology with the goal of becoming a hospice chaplain.
When I'm not scrambling to finish a paper at the last minute, I'm into art, music (choir), writing, reading everything I can get my hands on, politics (in my former life I worked for Ted Kennedy and Paul Wellstone), yoga, learning to cook and knit (although not at the same time), hanging out with family and friends, and long walks around the lakes in Minneapolis or along the Mississippi River.
We are also in earliest stages of the adoption process. I was adopted myself, so I often forget most women become mothers in a different way!
I also deal with chronic pain on a regular basis--I have fibromyalgia, a Harrington Rod in my back from having kyphosis, and arthritis--but I'm not letting it stand in the way of following my dreams!
