About Me

Welcome to my blog. Grab yourself a warm cup of tea (or coffee) and make yourself comfortable.

My name is Leigh and I’ve been a blogger for a very long time. I love writing, art, and beautiful things, and enjoy sharing it with the world.

My blog has come a long ways. It started off as a photography blog, then design and art blog, then back to photography. Somewhere in there, I got hooked on reading. I was always a reader but in 2013, I believe, I was going through some difficult times and reading helped immensely. I’ve then started reviewing the books I read on Goodreads.com and have continued to do so to this day. I have also added book reviews to this blog. I haven’t been very good at it but my goal is to include reviews on all the books I read going forward. I still have a love for crafting and scrapbooking, and have added planning (bullet journaling) to my list of hobbies, but reading consumes the majority of my time.

It was in 2008 that I joined WordPress and it’s been the longest blogging platform I’ve been with. Before that, I used a hosting company…can’t remember the name of the company but they probably don’t exist anymore. And, before that, it was Live Journal and Angelfire.

I started blogging as a way to deal with the stresses of college life. It was my sanctuary—my safe place to express myself. As time passed, it became a place to share my creativity and parts of my life.

Writing has always been a passion of mine since I was twelve. I have a few notebooks full of stories stashed somewhere in the basement. I wrote fiction and nonfiction (in diaries/journals). My first full length fiction novel idea started during my last couple of years in high school. As life happened, I’ve had to put the story aside. Even then, I was able to write a few paragraphs here and there throughout the ups and downs of family life. During my graduate program, I completed the story for my capstone project. I hope to have it published some day. In the meantime, I’ve had two published stories and continue to write fiction for publication.

Please enjoy your stay and come back anytime.

  1. I finally posted my very first blog entry. Check it out. Also, do you know where India’s blog is. Also, how view my blog subscriptions? I subsribed to your blog and Tag’s, but when I try to view my subs, I just get the list of wordpress ones.


    1. Awesome! I didn’t know India had a blog. I’ll have to ask her. You should be able to see them when you click on your stats. It’s usually on the bottom left. You can click on that link and it should list them. Let me know if this makes sense. Cool site, btw!!


  2. I came across your page– and although I hardly ever leave feedback for online blogs, articles, videos, etc.– I feel so compelled to leave you a message. Where do I start? How about: I love your blog?! Your writings, your ideas, your talents, and your pictures are amazing! I really love how your blog showcases your individuality and creativeness. So thrilled to have found your page. Happy Blogging! 🙂


    1. Thank you, blogwoirs. It is comments like yours that keep me motivated to continue with my blog.


  3. Looks like that you have a great time with your photography, and painting with your kids! I love your photographs! Good luck on your pursuits and your blog, and thank you for following mine! 🙂


    1. Give it a try. I’ve heard those who went digital never went back to paper. That didn’t work for me though. I’ll always like paper too.
