Thanks for stopping by this little blog o' mine. Here are some things you should know:
  • I belong to Jesus.
  • I love my husband, Kyle, and he loves me.  We were married on August 12, 2006.
  • I am studying to be a speech language pathologist (that's a speech therapist, if you aren't familiar with the term).
Why “Across the Brandywine?” In the earlier days of my blog, I wanted a theme that was unique. I thought for a long time, and nothing came. On a whim, my husband Kyle suggested a line from Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring where one hobbit says, “And no wonder they’re queer, … if they live on the wrong side of the Brandywine River, and right akin the Old Forest. That’s a dark bad place, if half the tales be true.

I started to think about the unknown life across the Brandywine, the mystery, the strangeness, the adventure. And so, it seemed fitting that I, a newlywed and in my early 20s, would have a blog that cataloged life’s adventures “Across the Brandywine.”

I'm happy you're here with me.
