I'm from Tillamook, Oregon, a tiny dairy farming town on the NW coast. I am a SAHM to one 2.5 year old daughter. DH is a welder. My hobbies and interests include cooking, reading (mostly mysteries, true crime, and novels--Patricia Cornwell, Ann Rule, and my all time favorite series, Harry Potter), spending time on the computer, and enjoying the beautiful outdoors with my family. I am also a passionate CPS (Child Passenger Safety) advocate.
