I'm Anne, a writer and homesteader in the small town of Duvall, WA, east of Seattle in the fern-covered Snoqualmie Valley. Although I'm now devoted to a log house, a changing array of animal personalities, and a low-key Canadian math wizard. For 15 years I worked in marketing and government. I'm using this dedicated space to share the common threads that inspire me most: foodways, people, places, and history.
