Janae Marie Anderson Wise was born on a bright, spring Easter Sunday, 1983.
Growing up, she was the mastermind behind many a theatrical performance, which she often made her little brother, Nate, play a part. She also liked to write letters, create things that drove her mom crazy, & try out new recipes that not infrequently resembled quasi-science experiments gone awry.
After high school, she went off to college & studied English, theater & art & had every intention of traveling the world.
Then in 2004, she met a handsome fella named Joseph.
She and Joseph dated for approximately 10 days.
Joseph thought Janae was smart & pretty, Janae thought Joseph was handsome & funny, so they decided to get married & five weeks later, they did!
Janae likes: hot chocolate (vegan, please), mornings, Pandora radio, reading newspapers (you know, the paper kind), the feeling of a full stomach, well-worn books.
Dislikes: Grumpy, whiny, or stingy people. Cold feet.
Little known facts: Known to be messy at times (she calls it creative energy). Addicted to chewing gum. Believes most sweet things can be improved with a good scoop of non-dairy ice cream.
