Lori's Profile

About

Hi! I'm Lori! I know you can't see me but I'm waving enthusiasticly at my computer monitor in greeting. I have several different "hats" I wear... mother, wife, business owner, daughter, sister, nerd, aunt, crafter, book worm, designer, diplomat, sometimes hostage negotiator, dreamer, crisis manager, comedian, chauffeur, finder, geek, animal lover, chef, teacher, archery nut, ninja wanna be, friend, and future Khalessi and mother of dragons.

I love being a mother. My son is my heart which walks around outside my chest. I know it may sound corny or cliche but it is the truth. He is such a precious treasure. We have mock battles where I channel Mikey from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and he pretends to be a diabolical Kraang droid. We watch Star Wars, play Angry Birds, build huge Lego monstrosities, and train watch. Yes, I do believe I have a geek in training but I…

We have mock battles where I channel Mikey from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and he pretends to be a diabolical Kraang droid. We watch Star Wars, play Angry Birds, build huge Lego monstrosities, and train watch. Yes, I do believe I have a geek in training but I am fine with that. I am a geek too! I kiss booboo's, vanquish monsters, and perform a thousand other mommy things each day with my partner in crime and husband. It's not a perfect life but it is definitely a happy life the three of us lead.

I love to read. I love the heft of a hard back book, the sound a virgin book makes when you crack it open for the first time, the smell of old books, and the way the words roll across the page. I love being transported to a place outside our world, outside our time, outside my imagination. It is a thirst I can never quench.

My chosen career.... or the career that chose me... I am a maker, a dreamer, an inventor. I find ways to bring beauty into the world and I am truly happy.
