Who am I?

In 1989 I moved to central Florida from southwestern Virginia.  I had never been to Florida before, but I wanted to live somewhere warm and sunny.  Moving to a place I'd never been and where I knew no one seemed like an adventure, which it was.  It also seemed temporary, but wasn't.  I like it here in the flat swampy land, with little lizards and big alligators and hurricanes and the Atlantic beaches less than an hour away. As it turns out, a person who is allergic to trees is better off not living in the mountains. Who knew?

I met my husband here, we had our first date on December 7, 2001, bonded together over our shared love of the Buzzcocks' music and the movie True Romance, moved in together in late January 2002 despite my previous protestations that it was stupid to live together without being married, got engaged on December 7, 2002 and went to celebrate by having Chinese food, and got married on October 1, 2003 standing in a circle of flowers on the beach. 

I am a writer and a reader and a photographer when I'm not sitting in a cubicle in an office looking at tiny little numbers on great big spreadsheets.

I need to exercise more, be more social, and get outside my own head every now and then.

Who are you?
