I used to both help direct a communications office and teach basic Italian. Since relocating to Leuven, Belgium, for my loved one’s PhD work, we’ve had two babies. Now I build Lego towers and mediate disputes over sharp objects that really should not be played with anyway. With free time, I cook or teach myself the language of the Flemish people and their old-school painting techniques. Aside from my spouse and kids, podcasts are my most constant companions. I still dream of becoming a ballerina. Keep up with her on her blog SAHMurai.
