Welcome to the Nerd Nest! I’m Megan Anderson, a crafty nerd who loves documenting life. When I’m not out on nerdy adventures with my family, I spend my time filling up Project Life albums, reading big stacks of books, and making stuff. Then I come here and share it all with you!

I love documenting the everyday, creative writing, coffee, sociology, and learning as much as my brain will hold. I believe in the power of stories. I hope I inspire you to tell yours!

You’ll be seeing a lot of the rest of the nest here on the blog (sometimes they even pop in to post things themselves!), so an introduction is in order:

Jake | The Nerd Nest

My husband Jake used to co-author the blog, but I sort of took it over. Now he just shares his love of photography and code, or sometimes funny stories, every once and awhile. Jake is a hobbyist photographer working his dream job as a software engineer in web development. He believes in the magic of the Internet as a tool to learn how to do anything.

Eliza | The Nerd Nest

Eliza is the most awesome 8 year old on the planet. Eli loves her French immersion school, learning about different cultures, and anything that combines her passions of art and science. She believes in asking questions to get a better hold on the world around her and has us searching through our college textbooks for answers at least once a week.

Jonas | The Nerd Nest

Jonas is our crazy little three year old. He loves baking, gardening, and superheros. He believes that you should always climb higher and that clothing is optional. This little dude is super sweet, but gives us a run for our money for sure.
