I never know what to say on these sorts of pages. It seems incredibly self-indulgent and narcissistic to write a page about oneself, doesn’t it? But when I stumble on a sweet new blog, I always head straight for the About Me page to learn a little more about the face behind the words, and I nearly always enjoy what I find. So I’ll assume that you, dear reader, might also enjoy getting the inside scoop – and if not, feel free to click away from this page!
So. Me. I’m Kelly. I currently live in Madison, Wisconsin, although I’m a born & bred Rhode Islander. (No, not Long Island. Rhode Island. Yep, the smallest state. Yes, it’s near Massachusetts. Got it?) I went to the most amazing college ever, located in Northfield, Minnesota. I’ve never lived in a big city. I like small dogs and books and silly puns, and I love mangos. I am incredibly lucky to have a great job in Madison and truly wonderful friends and family spread throughout the country, from California to Texas to the Ocean State. Wanderlust keeps me traveling, and I love visiting new countries. I get bored if I don’t have some sort of creative outlet in my life. My perfect temperature is about 87˚ Fahrenheit. I enjoy humidity; it feels like I’m being enveloped in a warm hug. I hate being cold, but I seem to always move to places with everlasting winters and subzero temperatures.
My favorite punctuation mark is the semicolon. I will support the Oxford comma until the day I die. Comma splices make me ill.
I’m silly and irreverent and I worry too much.
I’m also vegan, because I can’t look at an animal without seeing a life worth preserving.
