Daughter of a Baby Boomer, Granddaughter of the Great Depression and Great ~ Granddaughter of the Turn of the Century, that’s me. I have been honored in my lifetime have a momma who taught me honor, wisdom, morals, manners and that I do have a Grindstaff stinger~ To have known my grandparents and great-grandparents, very well; talked to them and listened to their stories, enjoyed home cooked meals with them, taken photographs of and with them, and have a lifetime of memories that I cherish.
I am blessed to have been married for 26 years to a man whom I believe is the smartest man I have ever known, who understands me, appreciates and loves me~ And Mommy to three beautiful huckleberries who are patient with my mid-life moody days and love me just the same. There is nothing like a hug from your child, just because.
I am fond of Old Movies with Grant, Day and Hepburn; I find books irresistible, especially Classics, Children’s Poetry, American and English Literature. I love to read, particularly a really old book that no one has opened in many years. Call me crazy, I love the way an old book smells.
I find happiness in tent camping with my family deep in the Pisgah National Forest, hiking less traveled trails and old logging roads, making lists, taking pictures of my family and nature, being a soccer mom, crocheting, writing, working on my blogs, painting almost anything, working with wood, refinishing and a new found passion woodturning, de-cluttering my home and life, knowing at the end of the day that I made a difference no matter how small, reading, and drinking coffee!
I am fascinated with trees, home grown barn grapes, my children’s education, family and literacy, thunderstorms, old barns, what old people have to say and vegetable gardens. I am eclectic and eccentric and truly believe that I must have been born in the wrong generation.
