Working on a memoir

How does one write about their own life?

 

“One word at a time,” the sarcastic one says.

“Follow a set bracket of time,” a wise one adds.

“Start at a pivotal┬ámoment and detail the surroundings,” your neighbor tells you.

 

Pick up a pen and begin again what you already know.

It’s a Girl!

You might’ve seen the previous posts, but it’s true: Leah and I are expecting a girl this August. She is due to arrive on Leah’s birthday (Aug. 11th) no less.

We spent this past weekend at Mom’s in Monticello to celebrate with family and close friends. As we’ve learned this info., it is now much more real.

There is growth.

There is a child on the way.

 

We are naming her after my babysitter- Zella (Rose), which means ‘blessed.’

All of the complimentary Kentucky checkboxes were marked this past Easter weekend:

  • cake
  • fried chicken
  • guns
  • a couple of proud mamas
