I used to live in a small town in the south, and now I live in a small town in the north. Seemingly almost the same place, just slightly different accents and a lot more cows.
I have a degree in Literature and no real clue what I want to do with my life. My only true desire is to serve God, live simply, and to be good wife and someday mom. I love to read, bake yummy things, and craft just about anything.
I also love learning new things and meeting new people!
I'm currently learning ASL and teaching myself to quilt. I have a major thing for typography. I'm silly and spontaneous, and a lot of the time also awkward and sarcastic. I'm also irrationally suspicious of cauliflower—don't ask.
So lets be friends...unless you don't like spiced chai (just kidding!...sort of).
a song for the birds
The title for this blog came from one of my all-time favorite songs..."Simple Life" by The Weepies (amazing musicians and people). The lyrics read:
Is it enough to write a song and sing it to the birds? They'd hear just the tune, not understand my love for words. But you would hear me and know, I want to live, I want to live a simple life.Along these lines...I suppose I want this blog to bring pause to my life. I often focus too much on looking ahead, rather than stopping to reflect on each day, each moment. I want to live a simple life and I have no idea what that journey is going to look like, but I don't want to miss a minute of it.
