My name is Ellen and I live in the Midwest with my husband and two golden retrievers, Brulee and Emmie. I was an art major in college, and many moons ago painted furniture and murals within my community. Currently I am painting and selling my art on Etsy.
I love to bake and I enjoy cooking but can never, ever seem to follow a recipe even if I have one sitting in front of me. Instead, I throw things into a pot at random and hope for the best.
I’m pretty much considered an introvert but am extremely loyal to the few friends I have.
I’m usually an open book if asked a question, however if you didn’t know me in the nineties or early 2000 you might be a bit surprised if you stumbled across a photo like this one:
I used to weigh around 235 pounds. I carried that weight on my five foot two inch frame and all the emotional baggage that went with it while in my twenties and spent my early thirties, trying to get to a weight I could live with.
My body seems to be most comfortable around 130 pounds which I’ve maintained for the past several years. That girl will always be a part of me however, and I will write about both of us along with other musings on life here at my blog.
Yes, a part of me writes for the love of writing but a big part of me writes for you, the reader. Whether you leave a comment when you visit or take a piece of information with you when you move on, I look forward to you stopping by anytime.
