Deeper Tracks

I grew up in South Bend, Indiana. I’m a lifelong Notre Dame fan and a proud graduate of Clay High School. After high school, I moved to the Chicago area for college (and stuff) before our family moved to Northern California, then the suburbs of Detroit, and now to San Diego.

We love our church. (Mostly that we aren’t on staff and can be pains in the neck without getting fired!) And we are learning how to garden organically.
