If You Care to Know...
So, for those of you who don’t know me…maybe you’re asking, “Who are you, and why should I read your blog?” Good questions, both!
Well, first things first – I’m Caroline. I’m south Louisiana born and raised – half of that childhood in the suburbs of Baton Rouge and the rest on 16 acres of country hills and trees. I proudly claim the country-girl title, having owned horses, raised animals of all kinds, given more lessons in milking goats than I can count, and played a starring role in my version of “Call the [Goat] Midwife.”
I married my best friend in the whole world on April 28, 2017. If the saying “laughter keeps you young” holds true, I’m bound to look ageless when I’m ninety, thanks to him. God has richly blessed me with Daniel.
(He's an entrepreneur who started his business when he was seventeen - if you like his photography on some of my posts, check out his amazing work at instragram.com/daniel_the_williams. )
And last year, the birth of our baby changed our lives forever - definitely the most amazing moment of my life. This little person that God has entrusted to us tangles himself deeper in my heartstrings with every hug and giggle. Motherhood is awe-inspiring, and I love every second.
I think I wrote my first story when I was six - a personalized version of Aesop's Fables, of all things! Ever since then, my pen has been my outlet. Creating short fiction and the occasional poem...jounaling...writing hundreds of letters to friends. (In fact, writing letters is what gave me the idea for this blog. When you have described your current reads in every letter you write, you become pretty comfortable with it!) This blog is a stepping stone in my writing journey - we'll see where it takes me! #bigdreams
The title for this blog comes from my life-long love of reading, if you haven't already picked up on that fact. ;) To me, books are nearly the only place where the vast expanse of everything imaginable melds with handheld comfort and warmth. And if you know me, you know I adore coffee shops. I created this little corner of the internet to be that same kind of cheery, cozy place. So stay tuned for more great books, plenty of talk about cuppas of all kinds, and *warning* possible upcoming dessert recipes. :) Hope you enjoy your stay! I love to chat and hear from you guys, so feel free to comment!
Now, to be completely honest, all the brainstorming to get cosmos and a cuppa up and running today has left me just a bit worn out. I hear the Bluebell ice cream in my freezer calling my name. (And just so happens, it's, ahem, coffee-flavored.) No joke, y'all. :)
See y'all later!
