About Me

When my oldest nephew was about 3 years old, I jokingly asked him one day “Hudson, who is your favorite aunt?”  (he has 5 of them).  He thought about it with his trademark furrowed brow for a minute, then said  “You know, I don’t really like ants.  Or any kinds of bugs really.”  I love that story.  So I became known as Ant Kristi in the world of my four rambunctious nephews:  Hudson, Truman, Andrew and Wyatt.  You can also find me on Twitter as @AntKristi.

I reside in hot, humid Austin TX USA but dream of one day living across the pond in England or France (and oui, je parle français).  I love Shakespeare, flowers, chai tea, and professional bike racing (so please don’t bother me when the Tour de France is on each July).  I’m proud to be a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (Burkina Faso [Africa] ’99-’01) and will talk to you about it for hours if you let me.

I started the operation UNunhappy blog to document my mid-life crisis attempts to reset, rediscover, and re-purpose my measly little existence.  I’m on a mission to de-perfection-ize my life (since my penchant for perfectionism has nearly driven me insane).  Join me for a real, honest account of the ups and downs in my trek toward UNunhappy – a term I coined to define the byproduct of life that so many of us are searching for.

UNunhappy = the opposite of unhappy

    Matt introduced your blog to his FB friends! Glad to follow along and hope to learn a bit from you, too! I stick to the peonies and puppy dog tails on my blog… http://www.morrowfamilyranch.com. But, when you notice I haven’t updated in a while it’s probably because I am still hiding the imperfections! Good luck to you on your journey!
