My husband Mark and I are makers. We like to make things, grow things, sew things, fix things, design and build things. One day we’d like an old farmhouse in the country with a big garden and cows in the yard, but for now we’re stuck in the suburbs, trying to make the most of what we have. We bought a home, and now we’re learning what we can design, build, make and grow, together.
Mark is from a small town in an agricultural area of Illinois. I grew up in the suburbs of New York, San Francisco and Chicago. We met in 2006 working at our college newspaper. We started dating in 2007 and married in 2011.
