I come from the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. The daughter of an ex-con and a dancer, I spent my formative years helping my father bootleg to make ends meet.
I became an adult and an unwed mother in rapid succession before marrying a man who told me “the only way you will get away from me is if one of us dies.”
I proved him wrong. Choosing not to remarry, I went on to live a simple life in a simple home. I have a simple job. I volunteer with a local animal rescue. I spend my spare time enjoying my children and grandchildren, caring for my home and pets, reading to expand my mind, and writing.
I started this website over a decade ago when the Minimalist movement was big. I’ve learned a lot since then so my views on life have changed as a result. Rather than whitewash my past, I’m owning it. My old stuff will probably sound a lot different from the new because of that, however.
If you want to tell me to go jump off a bridge here’s how you can do it. If you want to reach out and say hi or you have a suggestion that’s even better. I prefer that to the “go jump off a bridge” any day.
If you would like to help keep this website alive I have set up a donation link through PayPal.
Thank you so much for your support. You are awesome!
