Welcome to our Blog - after various servers and re-invention, we have finally (most recently) settled on a family blog, which will detail our thoughts & experiences as a young family. We are members of the Baha'i Faith - the newest of the world's religions - and so this exciting world-view certainly shapes our thoughts and reactions, but this is by no means an "official" Baha'i view (for more information on the Baha'i Faith, click here).
Here's a little bit of our history:
Liz (or Mama) - studied Anthropology & Botany most recently at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (among other universities). Is a self-taught photographer & gardener (out of pots on our back porch), and the mother of a one year-old baby.
Nathan (or Da) - studied Theatre at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and currently works at the Bookstore of the Baha'i House of Worship in Wilmette, Illinois. Is a
playwright & spoken-word artist, and the father of the same one year-old baby.
Olivia - the twice aforementioned one year-old baby. Is a patient & observant child, who enjoys silly time, has a funny little arm dance, and can show you where her "button" is.
As a family, we are committed to tasty organic food, low energy consumption, and cloth diapers. But mostly we are working to establish a healthy family & community life so that when we move on, we will leave the place a little nicer than we found it.
