About Me


If you love Pride and Prejudice, pirates, sitting on the beach, homemade cookies, Mexican food, holidays, Pinterest, small children, cats, dogs, or long naps… we should be friends.

I'm a romantic and my own worse critic; a left-handed, dry-humored, quirky wallflower with a serious bucket list that includes traveling whenever I can and trying new things, even if they scare me. I coupon, cruise, shop consignment stores, and am addicted to Chick-fil-A.


Hobbies are occasional gardening which I stink at, decorating which I also stink at, and running which is touch and go. I like to hike and scuba dive. I love the mountains and the sea. I believe in a loving, patient, and forgiving God. I love people and care about others around me deeper than I can sometimes express.


Life for me has been an incredible journey of family, friends, people, places, and discovering things both old and new. I'm a writer, but I'm also a friend, a sister, a daughter, an aunt, a mother, a wife, and so much more.
