My husband Matt and I have spent time living and working in Michigan, Arizona, Colorado, and Tennessee and are now enjoying a stint in Osaka, Japan. We have two precious animal babies, Mori and Junie B, and it's my dream to someday live on a farm smothered in animals. Perhaps I'll even learn how to garden and can my own vegetables.
