Welcome to The Miscellaneous Drawer, where I write about a little bit of everything – faith, culture, motherhood, story, vocation, community, finding beauty in the ordinary…
A bit about me – I’m a cradle Catholic, high school teacher, wife to Jeff, mama to Benny, and lover of anything in Netflix’s “BBC TV Shows Featuring a Strong Female Lead” category. I also used to love sleep, but now I run on caffeine and the faint hope of mayyybe snoozing my alarm on Saturdays. When I get a moment to myself, I enjoy reading, listening to podcasts, and daydreaming of living in Green Gables. Or Walden Pond in the autumn.
