I grew up in South Haven, Michigan. Gotta love the lakeshore! Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily. Moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College. Fell in love with GR and have been here since! (Go Beer City, USA!) Big fan of crime TV, the '90s (scrunchies! Saved By the Bell!), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading, people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.
