First of all, my husband Joel is also a logician, working on preference representation methods with a view towards applications in combinatorial auctions and committee voting. Outside the office, he spends time playing and writing programs for historical board games and tormenting me with bad puns.
My dad, Scott, works at ExperTune, doing everything from fielding tech support calls, maintaining the networks and computers, and deciding what types of tea to order for office consumption. My mom, Carolyn, divides her time between renovating a new/old house that my parents bought in 2000 and doing sketches and drawings for Bungalow Studios. (She is more than happy to do custom work).
My older sister, Andrea, got married in 2000 to Matt, and they both finished up their last year of architecture grad school in 2003. Matt & Andrea do residential design work. They're the proud parents of my nephew and niece. Owen was born February 1, 2005; here is a picture of him and me from eleven days later:
Owen & Aunt Sara
My niece Leah was born March 31, 2007. Here is a picture of her and me from when we were back in the US visiting in June:

Nephew number 2, Reuben, was born July 12, 2009. I had a two hour layover in the Minneapolis airport in September and got to meet him then:

Niece number 2, Rinnah, was born June 18, 2011. I'll get to meet her at Christmas.
