About Me

My name is Michelle. I'm a former homeschooling mom, which is why there are plenty of homeschool posts on this blog. All five of my kids are now adults, and homeschooling is a thing of the past. Even so, I realize there are always new homeschooling families who may need the information I've written over the years. Therefore, at least for now, I'm leaving that content here for now.

I was born in Tennessee, and grew up in Florida, primarily. We moved a lot, so there were a few stays in Tennessee and Georgia, but mostly I'm a Floridian. I'm a Southerner, for sure, from the way I speak to the foods I eat. Sadly, living in Central Florida for far too long, I had lost my connection with the Southern Culture and didn't even realize it until I spent six months in Georgia.. It all came back to me! I regularly share my life stories with my youngest daughters and they, too, have fallen in love with the culture.

Flower gardening, hiking, traveling - anything that allows me to be outside - are huge on my list of passions. If I could travel year-round, I would. If I could be paid to hike, I'd take the job. Seriously - outdoors is where I'm meant to be.

A newer interest is functional movement. For years, I've struggled with physical pain, only to find out I needed to get out of foot coffins (conventional shoes), and I have Ehler-Danlos Syndrome. So expect some posts related to this at some point. I'm on a journey to help my body.
