Thunderstorms are some of the most beautiful things. Ever since I was a little girl, I adored the sound of rolling thunder in the distance; the flashes of light illuminating the billowy clouds.
Thunderstorms can be loud, chaotic and full of exuberant drama. Thunder is the music of the heavens, a grandiose orchestra of riveting power. Lighting, the reason for thunder, is visually stunning yet terror-evoking.
Now, I don't dare compare myself to a thunderstorm, because that would be silly. I couldn't ever do such a phenomenon justice. I'm just a mere human, after all, and compared to the brilliance of a thunderstorm I'm, well, lacking.
But there is no question about it. I am a tempest in my own right.
I'm just a free-spirited country southern gal. And to this day I'm not even sure how to write a decent bio page.
I suppose the most important thing you should know about me, is that my life is meaningless without Christ. The reason I'm here is to point you to HIM.
Next thing you should know, is that I am married to my sweetheart and favorite person, Michael. Together we are building the life of our dreams! We got married on December 2, 2017, and yes, married life is pretty darn amazing.
I breathe, think, live musically. Here are the instruments I currently play.
Piano. (My favoritest of them all, my first love)
Guitar. (My bluegrass addiction)
Accordion. (My outlandish novelty)
Organ. (My itty bit of traditionalism)
Bodhran. (My Irish percussion bliss)
Ukulele. (My fluffy piece of happiness)
Appalachian dulcimer. (My simple hillbilly joy.)
Civil War tension snare drum. (My newest reenacting venture.)
Mandolin. (Just an eensy-weensy bit!)
Le vocal chords. (My own voice, which is a strange and unpredictable thing.)
I am also an ISSA certified personal trainer, as well as an ACE certified group fitness instructor, and love torturing people by making them sweat and generally enhancing their lifestyles.
