So I truly am a small town girl that has lived in Leetown, West (by God) Virginia my entire life. Actually I have lived within a 5 mile radius my entire life. Wow. With that said, I think I have earned to be a Leetown Lady.
I started blogging in 2009 as a hobby, merely to keep track of events and memories of our family. I made lots of blog friends and continued to share everything and anything. Blogging is a way I can put my thoughts to paper. It’s a way that I can be brutally honest if I chose to. I can share funny stories. It’s where I hope my family can go to find memories for many many years.
And about me…..I like to consider myself a sincere blogger. I don’t take friendships lightly. Integrity and honesty are important to me. I don’t pretend all is well in the neighborhood. It’s not uncommon to find me on my knees praying about one of the many challenges I face. I like ‘constant’. I like stability. I have been happily married for nearly 25 years. I have worked for Wells Fargo for 25 years. Change is inevitable. And when things do change, I find that ‘new’ normal, put my big girl panties on and deal.
So back to you being here – a few months ago I decided to take the plunge and go from Blogger to WordPress.org. I purchased a domain name. Signed up with Bluehost. Have been taking many, many courses. This is a huge move. With this revamp I plan to share and write about four main topics –
Faith – a MUST! God has a plan. I will share things that have enhanced my faith. From books I read, web-sites I visit, apps I have on my iPhone and iPad.
An Easier Life – Here you will find tips from organization to travel to laundry. Anything I can share that will help you have ‘an easier life’. We all know an easier life gives us more time to enjoy family, friends and new adventures.
Made@Home – From recipes to stockings to quilts to bags to wine cork crafts (no boundaries) I will provide you with ideas for every season and even some ‘just because’. My craft room is heaven. The sky is blue. Beautiful palm trees. My comfy chair with a nice cold drink and Ronnie’s chair nearby with a fishing pole. I love spending time there and that works out good for you.
All About Blogging – I have learned so much and want to share what I know. I am hoping to coordinate a Local Ladies Blogging club soon to expand our community out into the Big Wide World. So here you will find resources I have found helpful. Tips. Tricks. Just about anything I feel will help you.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you visit often. Feel free to contact me (many options on my home page). xo
