Hello there!


I’m Claire and I live in the Netherlands with my husband Kyle and our two kids (plus one on the way!). We’re from Canada – coast to centre – living it up in Europe until the Postdoc funding runs out. My job is to make sure we don’t starve, smell nice and look presentable. (Kyle’s job is mostly counting stars in other galaxies.) My interests are eclectic – to say the least. I’m a recovering (hopefully) control freak and an aspiring homeschool parent (whose kids go to public school and daycare). I’m a Catholic, babywearing, breastfeeding, P.G. Wodehouse/Tolkien/Jane Austen/Daniel Pennac/whatever-is-in-front-of-me reading, sewing and embroidering, baker without a real oven. And I don’t speak Dutch. Which is not ideal. But hopefully not permanent.
