Originally from Chicago, I moved to North Carolina with my then BF, now hubby. We were married July 30, 2011. We love the versatility of NC - the beach and the mountains - and have taken advantage of both. I'm a teacher, he's in finance. We are super competitive and like taking turns destroying each other at board and card games. We are both moderately into PC gaming, with me preferring first person action RPGS and him preferring shooters. We have two rescue pets, a dog named Lizzie and a cat named Smitty. On January 5, 2012 we welcomed baby Eliot Yunqing (pronounced Yun-ching, refers to an intellectual scholar in ancient Chinese literature) to our lives!
