About Natalie

This is me. With a cup of tea, and a pile of books. Except I don't have a window seat. -cries-
Welcome, dear reader! If I met you in real life you'd probably get a smile and a cheery hello, but underneath I would be awkwardly nervous about making a good first impression. You'd probably think me a nice but boring person and that would be the end of that. 

(Okay, I don't think it'd be that bad, but my brain unfortunately sees it that way. :P)

But, since you're here in my little corner of the blogging world, I can now tell you all about myself without worrying about boring you or sounding self-centered. 
After all, the power to click away from this page is in your own hands-er, fingers. 


First off, I'm a Christian, saved by faith through Jesus Christ, my Savior. Without Him, I am nothing.

I am a homeschool graduate "and my siblings are my bestest fwiends". (actually, I only have one sibling) 
Currently I'm a stay at home daughter--meaning I'm not going to college. Shocking, I know. :P

I have a myriad of interests and hobbies (I don't like the word hobbies. Sounds too much like dabble. And after all, I wouldn't know how to dabble.) .  I read books. A lot.

This Jane Austen Quote is one of my favorites because I love books so much! I…:

I write. Not only on this blog, but in fictional worlds of my own, created with my own little brain. I hope to one day publish these novels and stories, especially one I've been working on for a few years now, a retelling of "The Princess and the Pea". I love it to itty bitty pieces, and although I know it's not all it could be, it's mine and it's special. If you'd like to learn more, here's a link.

I'm an aspiring photographer. If I don't have a book or a pen in hand, you'll probably find my camera there.
I play the piano. Only tolerably well, but I suppose that is my own fault since I would not take the time to practice.  ;)
I love using my hands creatively by drawing, painting, or cutting paper into bits and pieces to craft homemade notecards. (You want me to send you one?) 

My heart yearns to travel, but I am also an introvert who is thankful for the days I don't have to leave the house. 

Or with a few people I am really close to..and of course, my cats:

I'm running out of things to say.... I'm rather terrible at these "about me" pages. After all, if you really want to get to know me, you should just stick around and read my posts. ;)
(hint hint)

The greatest thing in all my life has been the longing to find the place where…:
