Hello, my name is Jessica.  I'm a nearly thirty year old (eek!) library nerd.  This means that I mend books and work in book preservation for a living...which is pretty cool.  In my spare time I love to travel, eat tasty food, and take pictures, especially of flowers and nature-y things.  I'm crazy about my basset hounds, Cheese and Mabel, and my husband, Antoine.

This this is a place to document the special moments of life (the minute, the monumental and everything in between) that I want to hold onto until we "dissolve into something complete and great".  I hope you enjoy.  

“The earth was warm under me, and warm as I crumbled it through my fingers...I kept as still as I could. Nothing happened. I did not expect anything to happen. I was something that lay under the sun and felt it, like the pumpkins, and I did not want to be anything more. I was entirely happy. Perhaps we feel like that when we die and become a part of something entire, whether it is sun and air, or goodness and knowledge. At any rate, that is happiness; to be dissolved into something complete and great. When it comes to one, it comes as naturally as sleep.” - Willa Cather, My Ántonia
