Hello, friend! If you're a new reader to this blog, let me introduce myself. My name is Natalie and I'm a twenty-something girl living in northern Michigan, trying to figure out life in this crazy world. I was homeschooled throughout my entire childhood and yes, my brother is my best friend.

To quote Anne Shirley (one of my childhood heroines), "I'm a writer. That is, I write books." I grew up in a fantasy world of sorts, the world of fiction. So it's no wonder I find myself writing  my own fictional stories, and dreaming of the day when they'll be published. (So stay tuned, friends.)

I also love my books, photography, cowboy boots, playing the piano, starlight and dirt roads, adventures to new places, tea, rainy nights, my family, peonies, and the smell of freshly baked bread. 

(Not necessarily in that order, in case you were confused. :P)

Most importantly, I love Jesus Christ, who has redeemed me and made me His. He is my Savior, my Rock and Refuge, and the only hope for this world we temporarily call home. 

Welcome to the ramblings. I hope you stay awhile. ♥
