Thank you for visiting my BLOG today.

Now that you’re here, let me explain the title: The plain part is my first 24 years as a Mennonite girl In Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and the fancy part follows as I move south: first to Charlotte, North Carolina, and then to Jacksonville, Florida.

Watch for stories from my past and present knitted together by memory. You have memories too—or responses to what’s happening now. So, you are invited to post for any reason: something that resonates with you, a story clip from your past, whatever. We’ll call them “Stories: Then & Now, Yours & Mine. Just hit Subscribe and we’ll be chatting together.

Coming soon: How We Met
