I'm a nature blogger and marketing communications professional - raised in San Francisco, but a Midwesterner for the past 30 years. I love bird watching and writing about what I see. I love nature walks, though I don't do vigorous hiking. Of course, there's not much terrain in my part of Minnesota that lends itself to vigorous hiking! I have three kids, one still in school, one in college and one launched. I have a nice husband and a nice former husband, both of whom I met when I was a freshman in college. I don't watch TV except selected shows on DVD (Monk! Buffy! Grey's Anatomy!), but I've always been a reader (recently on a Lee Child kick). I'm a fan and board member of my local food co-op and occasionally OD on Kettle brand Sea Salt & Black Pepper potato chips. I don't do a lot of traveling, but would like to do more, and I try to be a considerate guest wherever I go. Perhaps in the future I'll try being a host.
