About

I am Stephanie, owner and author of One Moore In The Oven. I do NOT have all the answers…not even close! Writing helps me find my answers and that is why I have this blog.

One of my favorite spots

I am a woman, daughter, sister, niece, grandchild, and cousin. I am a gardener, fabulous cook, foodie, world traveler, and aspiring polymath. I am oh-so-close to being bilingual. Way back when we had a TV, I used to cry at cheesy commercials. My favorite character trait is tenacity; some people might refer to this as stubborn.

2000 Wedding on St. John

We got hitched in in the Virgin Islands

I never wanted to get married because almost every adult I knew had been divorced at least twice. And then I fell in love and got married to my best friend. Then I became a wife! We’ve been married, mostly happily, since 2000! Marriage is awesome and, yes, lots of work. But guess what: everything takes work! If you marry your best friend, then it is totally worth it.

 

Dinner at our favorite establishment

Dinner at our favorite establishment

Husband and I pondered procreation (and practiced the basics) for a little more than ten years and then had a baby girl in 2011. This was the original impetus for the blog – See original About page here. Then I became a Mama! Husband and I are working hard to raise a kind but fierce, free-thinking child who trusts and follows her own heart, and is not constrained by stereotypes or hand-me-down biases. (Check back in 20-40 years as to how that works out.) We have no idea what we’re doing but making it up as we go!

I am a reader, a writer, a project manager and a scientist. The more I read, the longer my reading list gets. Writing is relaxing and therapeutic. Multidisciplinary earth sciences are fascinating to me, especially hydrology. (Oh, hey: I am a hydrologist! You can check out my professional résumé here if you are into that sort of thing. But shhhh, don’t tell my clients I use four-letter words. None of them do! ;)) Everything is connected – and water connects everything! I love to explore those connections. I get excited about math (e.g., dimensional analysis, multivariate statistics, ) and even more so about teaching people not to fear math and science.

I like to ignore stereotypes, challenge the status quo and encourage independent thought. I am pretty sure that I would have been burned at the stake if I were born much earlier. I feel privileged to live at this moment in time, when everyone can choose between following the old rules and making up their own. I prefer the latter.

People amaze and inspire me. I want to understand the world, or at least a little bit more of it. My rational brain often loses out to my emotional/spiritual heart, as is obvious when you read this: I believe that it is possible for the world to live in peace and that love can overcome hate.

I certainly don’t have all the answers but writing helps me find more of them.

p.s. I have a decent polysyllabic vocabulary but sometimes prefer plain, old four-letter words such as ‘f#@k’ just because. Now here is the important part: If you are offended, then you should leave now. Otherwise, WELCOME to my little corner of the interwebs. Hope you find some interesting or at least mildly entertaining things herein.

  4. Hi there,

    I found your blog after one of my friends shared it with me on Facebook and wanted to run a few things by you. I’m working on a home education project, and I think it’s something you could definitely relate to. Let me know if you have a moment to discuss.

    Thanks!
