I am honored you stopped by!
I am a twenty-something blogger who has had a small space on the internet since my early teens, but have claimed this particular blog since I was 16. This blog has changed and grown, morphed and blossomed much since then! It is my prediction, it will continue to do so.

However you will also find deeper posts about my faith and personal growth. Prayer, bible-study, my church and immediate family make up a huge part of my life.

I am surrounded by some great friends and am blessed with a large, extensive family.
We are big, loud and find any excuse to hold a cook-out or go to dinner....
I am a lover of beautiful things and hot cups of tea.
I adore classic poetry, fluffy dogs and audio sermons.
My favorite book and film is Jane Eyre.
I am redeemed by the Grace of God.
I prefer something old rather than something new.

I am learning, reaching and growing everyday.
I do not like to stand still.
I seek above all else to run my race well.
This blog has seen many major turning points. In February of 2014 I lost my first rescue dog Molly.
In April 2014 I adopted my handsome fellow, Olaf.
You will see much of his fluffy face.....
My favorite era used to be the Regency Era. I started out making Regency outfits and have read all of Jane Austen books. I will always love this era for sure.

As 4-5 years ago, I developed a deep interest in the Civil War. I enjoy not only learning about civilian life, but also about battles and generals.
I danced at a local folk dance studio as a child, and then quit for 10 years. As of January 2014, I started dancing again. This was such a wonderful thing, and I am happier and healthier than I ever have been before!
I dance Traditional Mexican Folk, or Ballet Folklorico.

I hope you stick around and enjoy reading my blog!
I always love comments too.
Blessings and much love,
