writing about good books, cozy living, and how they shape an ordinary faith

Hi there! I’m glad you’re here. 

By trade, I am a Speech-Language Pathologist employed part-time in a public school system in Mississippi. I am married, having just celebrated six years. My husband and I alternate between embracing our inner homebodies and yearning for adventures. We started off on the adventurous foot, honeymooning in London and have scarcely slowed down since. In contrast, home has remained the same for these past six years and looks to remain the same for many more. We don’t have children (yet), but I am proud big sister to three siblings far younger than myself. You’ll likely hear of them!

According to the MBTI, I am an INFJ with an introversion level of 75-95%. According to the Eneagram, I’m a 4w5 who happens to hate all things melancholy. According to Pottermore, I’m a Hufflepuff. 

In my free time, you’ll likely find me with a cup of tea in one hand and a book in the other. I’m most partial to fantasy fiction and English period dramas. I don’t watch a lot of TV or movies, but when I do, it’s the same categories. Tolkien and Lewis have most of my literary heart. My home is the most English-cottage reminiscent abode I could find in Central Mississippi. I love to go for long walks and wring out at the end of the day with Yoga with Adriene. If you ask me where I want to eat, I’m going to tell you Mexican food or a pub. And if you could fly me some Ben’s Cookies, I’ll love you forever.

Thoughts on Quarantine

On March 5, we gathered with friends at a local coffee shop to listen to some of our more musically inclined friends play a show they had been working on for months. Afterward, we moved to one of those friend's homes to visit with a friend who had come for a visit...
