I am a wife, a mother, an older sister, a daughter, a teacher, a friend. A lover of soccer (or football, depending on the country I’m living in), dill pickles, the ocean, cheesy movies, a good book, homemade chocolate chip cookies. Rediscoverer of worldly delights with the help of a sidekick (or two), stealer of cuddles and kisses, and avid researcher of temper tantrums/sleepless nights/hitting/biting/ kicking/screaming/safe remedies for bad coughs. A lapsed runner, a hater of mornings, a tea drinker. A writer.
