Hello blog world!
For my first post I thought I would tell you a little about myself and how I went from city girl to Goldilocks (sans the golden locks).
My name is Mary, I’m an artist who likes the simple, beautiful, silly things in life. Up until a year ago I was living every single girl’s dream life. I had an amazing job at an art museum rubbing elbows with artists and anyone who was anyone in Dothan, Alabama. After a long day at work I could walk out the back door of my great apartment and there were all my friends, sitting out under the stars with a glass of wine, playing live music (no joke that was an average Tuesday). It was the perfect bohemian life. So how did I end up living in the middle of the woods…. with bears?
A BOY! Stupid Boys they always manage to come along and mess things up!
And love of course.
Ok my guy isn’t exactly a boy, he’s 12 years my senior and he is the director of a summer camp. After stealing my heart he stole me away from my free-spirited life and now we live in the middle of the National Forest. I’ve traded my 3″ heels for tennis shoes and my cocktail dresses for t-shirts (I still only where t-shirts when I absolutely have to yuck I’m just NOT a t-shirt kinda girl). Instead of galas, outdoor concerts, and art openings life now consists of camp staff, campers, kayaks and bears!
So here I am Goldilocks writing this blog to chronicle my exploits in art, in home making, in marriage….in life.
I hope I can bring a little beauty, some good ideas, a few laughs and a whole lot of joy into your day.
