Meet the Blonde
Hey! I’m the writer of this blog. Where should I start? Well, I’m blonde (obviously). Now that we’ve got that covered, let’s get to the basics. I’m a Utah resident, surrounded by beautiful mountains. I grew up in a tiny town, in a farming family. Moved to the city for college and hoped to not marry a small town boy. As luck would have it, I ended up marrying one of my brother’s high school friends, J, after college and we’re making our life in the city. I’ve always loved to write. I used to write teenage romance stories in a beat up, spiral bound, notebook I hid under my bed in high school. (No, I’m not publishing any of them on this site!) I discovered several years ago that I love to blog. At first, it was just an outlet during the hectic schedule of my college life. I never intended to blog for this many years, but I’ve kept it up, and I quite enjoy it!
When I’m not writing or blogging (or at my full-time job), you can find me doing any of the following: movie nights with J, cooking easy meals, tending my patio garden, cuddling my kitties (T-Money and Rex Manning), pretending to be creative, finding new music, or heading off an an easy adventure. This blog is dedicated to all of those things, and the other many ingredients that make up my life. I’m happy to see you’ve stumbled upon my page, and hope you enjoy your time here. Pour a glass/cup/bowl of your favorite drink/coffee/snack and relax. Stay a while. There’s plenty to explore.
Here are a few fun facts about me (the blonde):
I own a piano and have played since I was 6 years old.
My favorite meals are simple – street tacos with chips and guacamole, yaki-soba noodles with veggies, anything with scrambled eggs. Anything that takes under 10 minutes or requires just a few ingredients to make and I’ll probably love it.
Camping rejuvenates me – unless it’s in the desert. Desert camping makes me angry. I don’t like melting.
Someday, mark my words, I will own chickens and goats. Until then…
Welcome to the blog, and happy reading!

In March of 2013 my amazing mother was diagnosed with brain cancer. A stage 4 glioblastoma. She passed away on April 19, 2014 from the terrible illness at the young age of 58. I will never forget her and will never be the same. Cancer changes the lives of everyone it touches, even if you didn’t have cancer yourself.
