Hi there! I'm so glad you decided to stop by for a visit. I'm Alyx, and here's what you should know:

1. I am married to that stud up there and we've got two little ones. They're all pretty amazing humans, and even though I have days where I want to rip my hair out, I love 'em. Lots.

2. I love photography almost as much as I love my family. You can see my work here. I am based in the San Francisco Bay Area, but I love to travel! See if I'm coming near you anytime soon!

3. I'm kind of a nerd. I love languages, grammar, and writing. I'm fluent in German and have spent a good portion of my life living abroad.

4. I love to travel! Although we have not done much traveling since starting our family a few years ago, I have been to 16 countries and am working on hitting all the states in the US.

5. I get pretty invested in whatever I'm reading, so if you ever see me with a book in hand, it's best to walk on by without interrupting my dream world.

6. I love all things exercise, fitness, and outdoorsy. If you love those things, too, we can totally geek out!

7. I also love makeup! It's a recent obsession, and it started when I began selling LipSense about six months ago. I ended up separating from that company because of the way it was being run, but it's been so fun to learn and experiment. I've found an amazing product that allows me to be completely ready for the day in about 10 minutes, so that has been an amazing opportunity. You can learn more about Maskcara here.

Hey! You're a fulbright scholar in Germany? I was thinking about applying for this upcoming year for Turkey! I would love to talk to you more about it :)

I was totally singing the baller song last night while we were leaving the restaurant. A couple looked at me weird when I sang "and if I had a girlfriend I would call her".

Hey Alyx--I came over from A Modern Grace when I saw you comment about living in Germany. We also lived in a Germany for a short stint and traveled extensively in Germany and to 10 other countries besides while we were there. Nice to "meet" you :-)

KelleyAnnie @ Over the Threshold said...

Aaa, sorry to comment again, but I just saw that you have actually been to Marburg and that's where we lived! I actually taught a medical English class at the university there. Too exciting since most people do not know Marburg!
