My name is Joanne and I am a late-twentysomething living somewhere in America. By day (and a lot of nights), I work in sports communications, but really I'm just a writer trying to make sense of the world around me.

I live with my boyfriend, Kyle, and our two pet plants, Frederick and Atsuko (until our lives settle down enough to adopt a dog). I travel a lot, and he works on deployment to federal disaster areas. When we're not separated by the trappings of time and space, we can often be found in tickle fights, which I always lose. 

I like to run and try out new workouts and recipes. Kyle likes to tempt me with pizza. Another battle I often lose.

This blog is an attempt to explore my passions a little deeper, to share my current obsessions while also giving me a space to write. You might see my daily workout, a book review, a recap of my day or a story or essay I've been working on. We'll see where it goes.

I hope you'll stick around.
