Welcome to the Yub Nub Café. You probably haven't a clue (unless you're a complete and total nerd, too) what a *yub nub is, and know for a fact that this is not a literal café. Maybe one day when I can virtually serve coffee, tea and dainty pastries, it will be. But for now, it's simply a cozy corner of the internet that I call home for journaling, discussions, seriousness and unseriousness of all varieties. Most of all, I want to pen about life here, and all that true life (and living it) entails for me. :)
I'm a homeschooled graduate with a little college and my CNA. I've worked at a stables, restaurant, photography studio and a nutritional company.
I am married to Mr. O, an introverted hipster-theologian-old man-artist-professor wannabe, who is my bestie and the funniest guy I know. We have been adventuring through the beautiful, treacherous, sanctifying waters of marriage for only 3 years. I say "only" because, while we feel that we have learned SO much, we still have 47+ more years of learning to do.
Our lives have been graced with a Bear (2 years) and a Bee (1 year)...two darling little girls who bring much joy, humility and magic into our days. They are constant reminders of God's grace--how much we need it to be able to bestow it.
I am head mistress of The Wheelburrow, our 40ft camper house in my parent's driveway. It's name is derived from both it's cozy, rabbit-burrowness and a tribue to it's mobility.
I have such a widespread variety of interests, that it would confuse you to list them all (or reveal just how weird I am, and we don't want that). A condensed list includes:
- a love for all forms of writing.
- books. literature. biographies. poetry. theology. fiction.
- amateur photography.
- proper care of the elderly.
- cooking & healthy/whole eating.
- quiet, and learning quiet.
- missions. domestic and foreign.
- house churching, or any churching and learning to be part of the church.
- movie nerdature.
Although I love to blog, and the community that comes with it, I've had a hard time in the last several years doing it steadily. Life sometimes gets too demanding, or changes suddenly, and my priorities take a major shift. Sometimes blogging is a season for me. Sometimes you see me, sometimes you don't. But I love to keep in touch via email, so drop me a line if you want to know if I'm still alive. :)
a. a word in Ewok language from Star Wars: Episode VI. Yes. I'm a nerd.
b. the aforementioned Ewok word that we have made a household term for endearment, frustration or randomness. The nerdier Mr.O started it.
