In my spare time, I have the pleasure of writing and volunteering in areas that (really) challenge me, supporting my son as he trains and competes as a National Champion sprint kayaker…


and, of course, raising chickens!

My girls are a feminist brood of Ameraucanas and a Buckeye. The eggs? They’re Boudica blue and Buckeye brown, in honor of the lovely hens who lay them.*

*Boudica was a “a Celtic [warrior] queen who led a revolt against Roman rule in ancient Britain in A.D. 60 or 61.” The Buckeye is the only chicken breed known to have been developed by a woman.
