I grew up in rural Missouri. I loved my life there but couldn't wait to get to the big city. After living in San Francisco for 4 years, I decided a mid size "big city" is ideal and have been living in and enjoying St. Louis MO ever since. My favorite things to do actually include my job, photography, knitting and writing. The Internet intrigues me and I am constantly striving to meet the challenges it presents. Most of all, I enjoy being with my family and friends and seeking the unique and unusual in everyday life.
