Born and raised in North Carolina, I’m learning to hold my tongue as an NC State fan living in Chapel Hill. (It’s hard.) The top 3 things that make me smile are trips with my husband and our two little boys to our family’s beach house on North Topsail Island, painting watercolors, and taking excessively long naps. I feel that my English degree combined with a background in publishing and mild OCD give me license to correct everyone’s grammar (I know. I’m sorry.), and to-do lists make me happier than they probably should.
Maya Angelou. A true renaissance woman, every word that came out of her mouth was magic. She was a role model in so many ways for so many people because of her poetry, her sass, her strength, and her humility. Her writing has resonated with me more than anyone else I’ve read.
