I am an aspiring academic and traveler. Currently, I am studying all things medieval at Northern Illinois University, and will begin my MA/PhD studies in medieval Art History at University of Kansas this fall. My husband and our two and half dogs call Woodstock, Illinois home with me. I say two and a half because our cat seems to believe he is of the canine variety. In this blog you will find pictures of my travels and adventures in archives, random pieces of historical information, the occasional art project, and a smattering of essays that I am proud to share. In January of 2015, I decided to embark on a 365 day photography project.
