1/29/2008 ********************* 2008 SUMMER COOKOUT*********
Hello classmates!!! Have you all missed me???
We thought since the reunion was such a blast and it was nice to see everyone, having some fun in the sun would be just as fun.
. . .
After H.S. I moved to Maine for a few years. There I met and in 11/92 married David who was an artist/muscian at the time. He can best be described a tolerant of my drama, adventurous, open minded and very silly. He likes chocolate and cookie dough can a girl ask for more?
After we were married a year we moved back to WI. David went to work for my father in the drywall trade (starving artists have no fun) and I went to work for THE (Corporate) MAN. (a.k.a. Lands End).
In 95 we went to India for a few months where we rode rickshaws and elephants, saw the Taj and generally had life changing experiences.
In 98 we had our daughter, Devi India, who has a strong sense of self and her place in the world. She is dramatic (go figure), refreshing, and a wonderful illustrator of all sorts of silly stories.
After being in WI for 13 years we couldn't stand being away from the ocean any longer. We left family and dear friends for the Pine Tree State where David started his own successful drywall business and I homeschool our daughter.
As a family we live as simply as possible trying to learn the lesson that material advantage does not success make. We love letterboxing, hiking, volunteer Bible instruction, beachcombing, kayaking, lighthouse climbing, gallery hopping, museum going, and taking in concerts. We like to take trips to the "big city" of Portland (Maines largest city, smaller than Madison!) and Boston.
As an individual my hobbies/passions are as varied as I have time for. I'm passionate about homeschooling which we have been doing since Devi was 7. It's been an incredible learning experience for me. I love to write and wish I had more time for it. I am currently exploring freelance possibilities and taking courses in creative writing. (Thank you Mr. Fiene for that creative writing class!) I love to read, discover new music, play the piano, and walk the beach. I enjoy "altering" books, I still love chocolate as much as ever, and despite my asperations to live with less I can't stop buying shoes. And I'm still a drama queen but I've left the Marilyn Monroe posing aside (mostly)
I'm really going to miss the "do you remembers.." (only the good ones) at the reunion. Do me a favor and email me some of yours if you get the chance. I'd love to hear from anyone and everyone no matter how silly the memory is. Judy has promised to send me pictures but feel free to send me some of those too! (email@example.com)
