- Tea. Lots of tea. Well, really anything with caffeine. Also coffee. And Coke Zero.
- Clean laundry.
- Old houses and their gardens (most of these pictures were taken at or near Biltmore, in Asheville, NC).
- Broadway musicals. All of them, really, but right now it's all Hamilton, all the time. I am not throwing away my shot.
- Hoop skirts.
- Sugar cookies, Cheezits, dried mango, and red licorice. I would exist on this diet if I thought I could.
I’ve had a pretty strange collection of jobs (more material!). I’m a lawyer now. I’ve worked for huge big city law firms in three different cities, for a federal judge as his clerk, and for a tiny firm practicing every kind of law that came through the door. Before that, in no particular order and all before I was 24 years old, I was an ice cream scooper, a telemarketer, a Civil War living history reenactor, a home alarm monitor, a cafeteria plate-scraper, a paralegal, a papergirl, a U.S. Senate intern, and a receptionist.
