140-character brief: I'm a 25-yr-old Midwesterner-turned-Southerner. A wife to Nathan, homeowner, editor, triplet. I like chai lattes, reading, & music. I love Jesus.
Commonly Asked Questions
What's it like being a triplet?
What's it like not being a triplet? It's all I've ever known. It's pretty sweet, though. Growing up, we had our own at-home study group for tests. We played sports together. I can't read my siblings' minds and I can't sense when they are hurt. After 23 years, we're in three different states; two are married, two are homeowners, and all three found post-college employment. (woo hoo!)
What's Kansas like?
Flat. Very flat. I've biked across the state three times so I know there are some hills, but they are few and far between. Lots of prairie. I moved to Tennessee and the first thing I said was, "There are so many trees here!"
Are you real religious?
I love Jesus, if that's what you mean. I'm a sinner and God's righteous judgment says I deserve death. Nothing I do can fix things between me and Him. I'm a slave to sin. It is humanly impossible to save myself from sin. I need a Savior. So Jesus died in my place, the sinless Son of God bearing God's wrath on my behalf. Totally undeserved. Now I'm living for Him, my Lord and Savior. This is the best news ever! And I anxiously await eternity with God.
Why do you blog?
Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a quiet person. I'm good with words though, so my blog has been my outlet. I started this blog expecting to come to Nashville for a 2-month internship and that would be it. But I got a job, made Nashville home, and have been since June 2009. What started as a way to keep my friends and family back home informed has turned into an everyday chronicle of my life in Music City—a young adult stepping into "the real world" and (most of the time) loving it.
What's your favorite food?
That's a tough one. I am a big fan of a quality medium-well steak. I also really like steamed zucchini. On the dessert side: cherry cheesecake or DQ ice cream cake.
Chai latte. Hands down. Although with Nate working at Starbucks, I've been broadening my range of beverages. Recently had a caramel apple spice, and it was deliciousness in a cup. I've even tried coffee (okay, not great). I'm also fond of diet root beer or diet Mt. Dew.
I don't have it all together.
Blue. When I was little, I thought it was silly that my sister had a new favorite color every week. My first "big" bike was blue, so I decided I liked it and vowed to stick with it. (I'm also partial to green.)
Favorite place to travel?
Kansas City. I have great friends there and SWA flights between Nashville and KC are generally so inexpensive.
