I lived in Michigan for seventeen years before moving to Kentucky in 2008. I left all of my friends and family to come here and live in the beautiful foothills of Appalachia with my now-husband.
He happens to be a truck driver. The over-the-road kind who is hauling loads for at least a week at a time. It gets lonely for both of us. I spent some time out on the road with my sweetheart, but five weeks was enough for me. Once left at the house alone, I knew I had to build a new life for myself here. First, I adopted a big dog from the local animal shelter. She protected me and kept me company at night.
In 2009 our daughter, Violet, was born. She shook up the countryside and made some noise! Violet is a firecracker, to say the least.
In 2010 my mother moved to Kentucky from Michigan and she now lives just 2 miles from our house.
Every day Kentucky is feeling more and more like home. I have been blessed to be able to stay at home with Violet. I am blessed to be able to explore my creative side. I love to scrapbook! I like to try different crafts, and now I’m learning how to sew. I love to cook, too, and I am starting to do it more often.
This blog is my online scrapbook — a record of the fun things we’re doing, things we are making, what we are seeing and every day Violet is learning! Welcome to my home. 🙂
