I grew up in Alabama and treasure my southern roots. The lure to travel never yielded its knocking at my door, which led to teaching a year in Spain and eventually my Galician husband and later our son. While we consider ourselves immensely fortunate to call both places home, we are currently enjoying living in Fukuoka, Japan. My main projects are design work and taking care of baby, but when not at these tasks, I am usually cooking, gardening, reading, strolling, or exploring our city. My heavenly escape moments are spent recollecting my thoughts in cozy cafés.
