I am a vegan cat lady who enjoys crafting, reading, dancing while cooking, Alice, and glamping, so if any of this resonates with you, woohoo! You get to enjoy these added perks! Aside from my amazing artists and students I also share my life with my acro partner turned life partner, his two offspring (who enjoy flipping around even more than we do), and my two old cats (who do zero flipping and give zero fucks about any of this).
