Important Facts: I am an armchair historian and a terrible backseat driver. I was born and raised in Central Illinois, a farmer's daughter and the youngest of three children. I was in a church pew before I was a month old. My mother claims I am proof that God has a sense of humor.

I read an awful lot of books about the Black Death. I'm terrified of flying. I wear too many sweaters. I still believe in the power of well-written poetry.

I met my southern gentleman of a husband at SIUC. After graduation, we settled down for good in Greenville, South Carolina. We bought ourselves a house, named the dog Indiana, and somewhere in there the hospital let us take a baby home. This blog exists mainly to update friends and family on our lives as step by step we are dragged kicking and screaming into adulthood.
