My name is Elizabeth. Some people call me Liz, but I would rather be thought of as an “Elizabeth” than a “Liz.” I’m actually pretty partial to Lizzybeth, which is what my Granny Wynema calls me. My parents thought about naming me Charlotte. I’m really glad they didn’t.

I was born on November 14, 1984 and gifts are welcome. Anytime.

I’m married and have one sweet little puppy.¬†Clarabel Dolores is a Scoodle and she was born on my best friend’s wedding day, January 5, 2008.

I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Arts in English Writing. After 5 years in an office, 3 of them in public schools, I quit my day job to focus on writing a book and freelance editing to pay the bills.

I’m the oldest of three. I have two younger brothers, which means I know a thing or two about being a bossy pants.

I grew up in rural Oklahoma, had a good childhood, and went to the school that was the inspiration for Footloose.

I have a difficult time deciding what this blog is about. Really…it’s a lot of things. I take lots of photos and post them from time to time. I try out weird recipes on my husband and I do a lot of baking. There’s often photographic evidence of this as well. I read a lot and sometimes get wrapped up in good TV shows. I have opinions on a lot of things and I share them occasionally. My faith is very important to me and I talk about that quite a bit, too. I live in a small city and I hate it. I tend to wax nostalgic about my hometown and life in the country more often than not.
