I look in the mirror and I ask, “who am I?” I am a passionate person, and always excited to share fun tidbits with anyone willing to listen. My husband keeps telling me I should start a blog. (I’ve started many- I’m not even sure I will get around to publishing this one). I have decided to listen to my husband! (shh don’t tell anyone I told you so)
I needed some sort of name for my blog, for some reason this little event in my life inspired the name. You see, a few years ago I was wearing 4 inch wedges at my *very* small town, high school reunion. Someone called me a “city girl” I looked around for the city girl they were referencing… could it really be me?
For those of you that don’t know me, I much prefer being at the lake over a shopping mall, and having a picnic in the country over dining in a fancy restaurant. Being born and raised in Montana, my outdoor roots run deep~
I live in North Carolina now, and have been fortunate to live in all regions of the US. Those experiences, and cultures are also part of who I am. That “city girl” label for some reason, has stuck with me for many years. I’m not sure why, but I think it’s because I am anything but a city girl. And let me be clear, I have nothing against a girl that can take on the urban life, because it’s not for the faint hearted! It’s just not me, that simple.
So here it is… “Plaid Blondie” ~ I love plaid shirts (see I told you I’m not fancy) and I’m blonde. That sounds simple enough.
And here I am, hoping to help encourage you to do those little things in life that put a smile on your face. I am passionate about budget friendly DIY projects, old falling down houses, baking from scratch, old books, and adorable animals. For some extra creativity, I will sprinkle in a few fictional pieces. I hope that reading these will leave you hungry and coming back for more!
And always remember….
Don’t judge a girl by her shoes!
