It's most likely a happy accident that you found your way to my little corner of the blogging world. I'm happy you're here.
I started blogging in 2006 strictly as a hobby to help process life and ideas and, quite frankly, to keep from going a little bit crazy bumping around in my own headspace. It's one of the places where I write and watch for the ways that God is at work in my life.
At nineteen, I became wife to my high school sweetheart while he was still a college student. Together, we forged our family through twenty years of military life, nineteen moves, eight children; three of whom we grieved as they passed briefly through this world and into the next, and five that continue to be the source of our most cherished relationships, sweetest memories, and the very best stories. I have enjoyed my years as a stay-at-home mom, occasional homeschool teacher, and now Ma-Ma to a growing number of grand-littles. I am a homemaker. That's my full time job, and I couldn't be happier.
I enjoy writing, cooking, growing herbs, walking, nature, birds, good books, beaches, euchre, music, chocolate, chats over coffee, early mornings when the stars are still bright in the sky, and so much more. I love to learn new things. All of these are second only to enjoying time with my husband who is my very best friend, our children, our sweet grand-littles, and my kindred spirit, Robin.
If you feel a little bit of connection to any of that and want to be part of conversations about life in progress, please come back and visit often. I share the rabbit holes I find myself following because, ultimately, that's part of how we are community in the online world.
I confess, I may be a bit of a coffee snob. Not like the most expensive kind of coffee snob, just not a Folgers or Maxwell House kind of coffee girl. I like my Starbucks Breakfast Blend at home fresh from my own grinder. I don’t even care for it brewed from the shop. And if there is no creamer, don’t bother.
If I were a state, Sunflowers would be my flower and the Dragonfly would be my insect. They hold special meaning for me because of their symbolism.
I hope you will find a warm welcome here.
