Behind the Caffeine

I’m Kimberly, the 40ish, happily-married-to-Todd, highly-caffeinated, strict vegetarian, homeschooling, adoptive parent to Adam and Leah.

After 15 years of working as a freelance graphic designer, I finally abandoned all hope of ever achieving any semblance of work/life balance. Instead, I’ve shelved my career (except for the occasional too-good-to-resist project) and (mostly) embraced the life of a stay-at-home-mama.

In theory, this life change was supposed to afford me more time for creative pursuits, but then we became a homeschooling family and everyone insists that I prioritize making dinner and doing laundry over knitting. Life is all about compromise, I suppose. As long as there’s coffee, I can make it work.
