I'm Lindsey. And you are?
Nice to meet you. I'm so glad you've dropped by to my little corner of the internet. I hope you know how so very loved you are.
Now, a little about me. Wanna know a little secret?
I'm a walking contradiction. Seriously.
I'm a classically trained opera singer who really doesn't like opera all that much. I mean, I love to sing, but prefer art songs, spirituals, and folk songs.
I'm a wanna-be-hippie that has a love affair with peanut butter m&m's and chips. I'd love to go live in an off-the-grid commune, as long as I can take modern medicine, Amazon, and cookie butter with me. Something tells me this would not go well.
I consider myself an artist even though I can't paint or draw to save my life. That's ok. I consider art to be a very broad term, not limited to what you can create on a canvas. I hope to expound upon that a lot here. I craft, sew, decorate, bake, and am constantly creating. I have an artist's soul, even if I don't have an artist's hand.
I think of myself as a 22 year old world adventurer, when in REAL life, I'm a 31 year old stay at home mother of 4 precious, hilarious children. You know the saying that parenthood is the biggest adventure? It's cliché and kind of misleading. But also, strangely true. That said, I really want to go on actual physical adventures once we've gotten some big life skills down. Like sleeping. And using a potty. And eating what's put in front of you. Minor things.
I love hot drinks and the bulk of my wardrobe is some sort of sweater/kimono/shawl. I live in the Deep South, but this doesn't stop me from enjoying these things 365 days of the year, even though we have about 5 days of Fall and 3 days of Winter here.
I'm a believer of The Gospel and in love with the God who crafted it. I forget my true identity all the time and need to be reminded often. I claim the grace of Jesus, but I neglect to extend it to myself and others. This is the biggest contradiction of all, but I'm content to be a work-in-progress. After all, I love the art of creating something beautiful out of something broken, and I'm trusting that the Creator is doing the same thing with me.
So here I am. I hope you'll take me as I am and join me in this little adventure. I'd be glad to have you along.
