About Me

Hello, & thank you for visiting my blog!

My name is Liz, & I am first & foremost a wife & mother. I have two children & one on the way, have been married since 2004 & live on the beautiful west coast. I graduated with my BA in English in 2006, yet reading comprehension still seems to be my weakest subject - go figure. Other than being an avid reader (let's face it, if I didn't love reading, I wouldn't have even considered creating this blog! :), I also love to sew, dance, photograph everyday life, & spend time with my family! I am also passionate about music & life-long-learning.

*update 9/2013: I started homeschooling my oldest child this August. We are dipping our toes into this new, semi-scary, exciting part of our lives. I don't feel too much pressure yet since he's in Kindergarten. How much could I really mess up at this stage?

About My Blog:

As far as content goes, this blog's main focus will be for studying classics apropos of (just learned this idiom - woot!) The Well-Educated Mind by Susan Wise Bauer.  I hope to include "time out from reading" & "through the pages" posts like from my blogging days prior to this project:  I will potentially throw some other books that I'm reading into the mix as well to prevent me from going into a classics-induced reading coma.
