For my next trick…

I am in a new season of my life. Summer 2017, I relocated to the West Coast and back to my hometown in the United States. Spring 2018, my master’s degree in History was completed. In that season, I found myself unexpectedly flying solo, so I had to push writing history to the back-burner and seek a career that will support me. Summer 2019, I am a licensed real estate broker! I love doing the research on properties, and learning the history in each neighborhood and town. I know a lot about Seattle, but I was away a long time and I am enjoying getting reacquainted.

I plan to start posting a little about real estate on my new website www.lisavb.withwre.com. And hopefully I will be able to do more writing here too. Onward!

Time Flies

Goodbye Terrible Winters, Hello Perpetual Rain

I can’t believe it’s been so long since my last update. A lot has changed in half of a year. Not the least of which was moving across the continent and from Canada back to the US. All the upheaval means that I am still putting finishing touches on my master’s thesis, and I had to withdraw from presenting at a conference. I’ve also not done much in the way of needlework or historical costume. Sigh…

But I’m almost done with my degree, the fires of re-entry to the US are almost put out, all the boxes have been emptied, and there are lots of local opportunities here in Seattle. The potential for a materially productive year ahead is good!
