I’m in my early thirties, was born in California but have lived in the Netherlands, Germany, and Utah since then, and returned to the Bay Area in December 2015, happy to be home and a little puzzled that I made it back there.
My husband and I met in Utah in 2014 and added a daughter to our family in 2017. G. is the light of our lives and also a tiny tyrant, often at the same time. I spent my days running after her, volunteering at church, trying to keep a handle on my own projects during nap time and at night, and attempting to out-read the library.
In the span of four years, I married my husband, had a daughter, finished a Ph.D, and came out as trans. It’s been quite the few years, and this space is one of the places I try to make sense of it all. I’m honored you decided to come along.
