Welcome to Carrots! I’m so glad you stopped by my little corner of the web where I write about motherhood, faith, culture, and literature (with a healthy dose of miscellany and fashion).
A Little Introduction
I’m a Catholic convert, writer, speaker, podcaster, wife, and bookish mama to four (ages 10, 7, 5, and 7 months). We left our urban life in Florida to live on a farm with no flushing toilets in Texas where my husband did a sustainable agriculture internship for a year. He is a farmer/beekeeper/social worker and we live in Waco, TX. I spend my days writing, homeschooling my little ones, and making sure we don’t run out of bacon.
When I get a moment to myself I love to read Evelyn Waugh, L.M. Montgomery, or Flannery O’Connor. And I’m always up for a chat about Jane Austen.
No, really. Jane Austen all the time. OK, moving on.
I’ve been married for thirteen years to my high school sweetheart, Daniel. His beard is impressive, his tattoos are many, and he’s an amazing beekeeper, chef, urban gardener, and ultra-marathon runner who lovingly puts up with my failure to keep our house clean and watches countless BBC miniseries with me without complaint. What a guy! His day job is making whisky.
Benjamin is our lively, chatty, animal-loving ten-year-old big brother, beekeeper in training, and LEGO builder extraordinaire.
Lucy is our darling, sweet-tempered, artistic seven-year-old. She’s our old soul.
Gwen Stellamaris is our hilarious, firecracker of a five-year-old. She is a warrior queen and our only child whose shenanigans often require a call to Poison Control or the Emergency Room.
And Hildegard Rose is our new addition. The chillest, sweetest, most lovable baby in the universe.
If you don’t know where to begin, you might to check out my most popular posts from last year.

I love getting email from readers and I read each and every one! And I try very hard to respond. But I truly can’t respond to all the wonderful emails from readers in a timely manner and be a good mama, too. And my kids are awfully cute, so if a choice has to be made, I choose them. Thanks for understanding if it takes me forever to respond!
