    California born and bred. I have lived primarily in Sacramento, with brief stints in Southern California (for university) and Cairo, Egypt (also for university). I earned my Master's degree several years ago and was working happily in a middle/high school library. Then, about a year ago, I quit to stay home with my (now) 11 month-old daughter.
    My family lives in suburbia, but we're slowly working on bringing a little bit of the farm to our backyard. Last year, maybe a little foolishly, I indulged in the long-time interest of beekeeping and got our first hive up and running. Thinking the first year we would not see any honey, it seemed like a great time to start.
    Oh my! Our hive produced 34 pounds of honey, which needed to be harvested a week after I gave birth to our daughter. Thankfully I have a fantastic dad and husband who both stepped up and took care of it.
    This year we added chickens to our quarter-acre farm and next year we hope to add a large garden plot (although our backyard is mostly shaded so it may be a pipe dream).

    Beekeeping (obviously), cooking, gardening, reading, birdwatching (especially in our backyard)
