Hi, my name is Anna – welcome to my corner of the digital universe. I’m a twenty-something high school English teacher currently living in a suburb of Kansas City. When I’m not consumed with lesson planning and essay grading, I love to travel, read, write, play the piano, spend time with my husband and family, and try my hand at healthy cooking and active living.
Since I was a child, I’ve wanted to write for a living, and I’ve filled journals with stories and narratives, both real and imagined. While I can’t claim to be a lifestyle expert, I’m passionate about living a life full of adventures, both big and small, and this is my chance to share those adventures with you along the way.
A little more about me: I married my high school sweetheart in September 2013 – his name is Jeremy and I couldn’t be happier. Jeremy is a talented architect and a kind, warm, and loving soul. We have a ragdoll cat named Leo who thinks he’s a human, loves open windows, and plays fetch. Thanks to road trips with my family and college trips abroad, I’ve been to something like 43 states and 6 other countries and counting. I graduated from the University of Kansas in 2013, from a five-year program where I completed two undergraduate degrees (one in Secondary English Education and one in Creative Writing) and a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I’m a Jayhawk through and through. I love dark chocolate and Coldplay, and the Harry Potter series defined my childhood (and my teenage years, too). I love being deeply moved by a good book and I dream of seeing my own novel for sale on bookstore shelves someday.
