Born and raised in Bozeman, Montana, I pursued a degree in Mass Communications/Journalism at Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana. I graduated with honours in 2004 and jumped right into a job as Film & Research Coordinator with Heartland Film (then called Heartland Truly Moving Pictures) in Indianapolis. It was there I met my husband, Irish filmmaker Frank Kelly, and he swept me off my feet in the following months. On New Year’s Day, 2008, I moved to Drogheda, Co. Louth, Ireland, where I married Frank and had two lovely children, Evelyn (2009) and Shea (2013). I was employed in multiple ways, doing everything from nannying to washing dishes to answering phones and more, and all the while I learned to appreciate and love my adopted home of Eire. In Autumn 2013, our family decided to emigrate back to the USA, and we have lived in Indianapolis and now, Menlo Park, CA.
I hope you’ll follow our adventures, be they in the USA or abroad, and find your place in my “mixed bag” of posts that range from recipes to travel to crafts and creative aspirations to thoughts on family, faith and the meaning of life.
