I am a mother, a Nuclear Physicist, a certified personal trainer, amateur chef, epic garden planner, HAM radio operator, and lover of all things outdoors.  I wear toe shoes and my 6 month old.  I'm all over the place, but I like it that way! 

I don't just want to float through life taking things for granted, I want to know the why and how of everything.  That's my hungry mind, and I can't help but feed it.  This blog is meant to chronicle my journey and you're invited to come along for the ride!

Like many people, I learn things best by actually doing - getting my hands dirty.  Even when things don't go according to plan, the experience of actually doing something is so much more valuable than just reading an article or watching a youtube video.  I love every failure as much as each success, and I can't imagine life any other way.

I'm excited to share my knowledge and hair brained schemes.  Who knows, you might just learn something right along with me, and you'll definitely want to get your hands dirty!
