Yo Soy Yo

I am a high school Spanish teacher in a small town in South Georgia. I grew up and spent the majority of my life in what I now know should be referred to as The North. After being transplanted here six years ago, I learned Spanish, married a native speaker, and spend most days longing for really good Thai food. On the plus side, I can now cook great tingas, make a variety of red and green chile sauces, know the difference between a Good Ole Boy and a Good Man, and can mumble in five languages (six if you count mangled blessings in Hebrew). I live with my husband, who is named after the saint for October 1st, and my Pembroke Welsh Corgis, who are named after Charles Mingus and John Coltrane. My dream is to live someplace where I can spend the whole summer outdoors in the garden without too many gnats and mosquitoes or too much heat and humidity.
