Well. I’m flattered that you’re curious enough to read this. Hopefully I shan’t disappoint. 🙂
I’m 21. (although I alternately get guessed as much younger… or 23.) I think it’s the lack of makeup… or my height, at 5’9″. Then again, how long could it possibly take one to grow that much hair? 😉 (it nearly reaches my knees). I smile a lot. 😀
Things I love: God, first and foremost. He’s closer than the breath I breathe and knows every single detail about me, even the ones I don’t share with anyone else.
Colors. I love color, every nuance of every shade and how they mingle and play together in our vision. It’s breathtaking when I get it right and match something that looks splendid and sends a shiver of joy through me.
Words. They’re the tools of our expression… without them, we couldn’t communicate. Matching words together to make something beautiful is something that I think is lovely. I’m on my fourth novel.
Maybe Someday I’m going to edit and polish and publish them.
Singing! Music is my delight! (no, no, that sounded too much like Lady Catherine de Bourgh…) Any other Jane Austen Fans out there? I love lifting my voice in song. And I can sing pretty well. 🙂 I also recently took up the bass guitar to help out in church.
Dancing. Ohhhhh yes. I love dancing, whether it be alone in my room or in the midst of a happy, laughing crowd of English-Country-Dancers, moving to the music always stirs my soul.
Photography. I know, I know, everybody and their BFF is a photographer these days. I’m not. I still use the point-and-shoot modes on my Olympus PEN EPL-1, but thanks to my eye for spacial relation, I take good pictures, nonetheless. And I love freezing memories, to savor in later years.
Jewelry. I’ve loved sparkle and ‘gems’ since I was a wee little thing, and I love creating my own jewelry. (Visit my ebook site if you like making jewelry too). Beads and crystals and silver are so much fun to combine into stunning, wearable designs.
Crochet! Yet another way I get to play with color… and this one’s soft and fuzzy. 🙂 Yarn is fun to fiddle with, especially when, by careful motion with a crochet hook + a little patience + time, = something gorgeous. I started the craft when I was 8 years old.
I grew up in South Florida… right across from Miami but on the Gulf Coast. I don’t remember learning how to swim, I just always have. 🙂 I went to the beach every week and built sand castles, collected shells, explored underwater with goggles, and turned my hair white-blond from being in the intense sunshine so much. When I was fourteen, my family and I moved to rural Georgia. We’re somewhere in the middle of the state, above the gnat line, but below Atlanta. Now we live in a log cabin on a hill with 30 chickens and a big garden… and I love it. I’m a country girl at heart.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I look forward to being your friend. 😀
