So, what am I up to in real life?
Well, I’m currently living in Denver with my husband. Sometimes we go on random road trips, though, so I’m just as likely to be out on the road as sitting at home.
Regardless of where I am, I’m spending a good portion of the day working on this website. And I’ve got a cup of hot tea close by. :)
The most fun thing I’ve been working on lately is the History in the Names timeline. I’ve learned some fascinating things doing all that research. Using personal names as a lens through which to view historical events and trends has taught me more than I ever would have imagined.
(This is definitely not the direction I thought my snark-filled name blog of the early 2000s would take, but I’m so glad it did. I’m also happy to say that all those old, snarky posts have since been purged from the site.)
When I’m not working on NBN, I tend to do low-key stuff. I clean the house, I take walks, I read/listen to books — stuff like that. Occasionally I’ll try out a new recipe. Oh, and I love to hike in the mountains — even if I only manage to get out there a few times a year.
I’m writing this in April of 2021. If my “now” ends up changing drastically at some point in the future, I’ll return to this page and make an update. Otherwise, I hope you enjoyed this little snapshot of my life. Feel free to get in touch anytime.
