I’m Krista, the oldest daughter of a bass-playing skipper and a sanguine soprano. I grew up sailing the marshes of coastal Carolina, went to college in the desert, spent a couple years on a river in Florida making breakfast, lunch, and dinner for my feisty grandmother, only to land back out West, a mile into the sky. For now.
Professionally, I’m a Marketing Manager in the travel industry, although I did some time in the music industry–producing a few concert tours and overseeing the publicity of all the albums our label turned out (one of them even won a Grammy, thankyouverymuch).
I’m a quintessential Pisces with a fetish for words, hand-written letters mailed with a stamp, Valentine’s Day candy, and daydreaming. Yes, I’m single, and yes–it’s baffling. I mean clearly, I’m a catch.
The last few years have been a maze of fumbling and discovery as I’ve sought to make sense of a substantial job loss, two cross-country moves, being single in your late 30s, and the intersection of my life and my faith. This blog is where my “becoming” plays out.
If you’re wondering where to dive in, here are my favorite posts.
