Hi everyone! I am Dawn—a friend of Melissa’s for a few years now through Hello Mornings online bible studies. She’s asked me to come on board with occasional blog posts, book and product reviews, and I’m pretty excited about joining in!
So, a little about me…I am happily married to hubby, Bill, for almost thirteen years, and we have a twelve-year-old son, Michael, three extremely spoiled dogs-Ruby, Sweet Pea, and Tucker, and five crazy (LOUD!) birds-Loki, Lenny, Squiggy, Blinkie, and Pearl. We are originally from western PA, spent a few years in Ohio, a few more years in Tennessee, a couple of years back in PA and are currently living in New Bedford, MA—I love New England!! I love living so close to the ocean—Love.The.Beach!! I also joined a rowing team last fall and am having such a blast on the water, seeing harbor seals pop up, watching all the fishing boats and barges coming and going. So much fun!
I’m a stay at home mom/artist and I enjoy painting, drawing, Scripture/art journaling, with hand lettering being my latest craze. I started out painting house portraits on roofing slates when we were living in Ohio. Then tried my hand at painting murals in Tennessee—I love painting on walls! I’m just starting to dabble with watercolors and seascapes and have discovered the joys of art journaling and lettering this past year. I’m always scribbling on something!
My other favorite hobbies (obsessions!) include bible study and reading-I’m a huge George RR Martin and JK Rowling fan—cooking (love to eat!) and movies. I get itches to knit and crochet in the winter when I need something to keep me warm. I’m an avid runner and now rower. I love exploring here in New England—the beaches, the lighthouses, so much history! And I dream of moving further north into Maine eventually—I really do love the snow and cold, must be part Eskimo! Haha!
I’m definitely looking forward to being here with Melissa and sharing with all of you!
Hugs and blessings!
