I am not very good at writing ABOUT ME’s… although my whole blog is really about me… weird, I know.

I am a day dreamer  that loves to paint with words. I love to travel, listen to all types of music, eat fantastically prepared food (from 5 star restaurants to amazing backyard BBQ), rant over silly things that get my blood pressure boiling, and veg out with a great book.

I live in Huntsville, Alabama yet I still call Florida home (it’s where I grew up).  The Gulf of Mexico is where I find the most solace. There’s nothing like the white sugar sand of the Gulf coast.

I started this blog when I was going through a separation from my husband, to help me vent and journal through the trials and tribulations of the experience. I’ve found I censor myself a lot, but maybe learning how to be more censored is what I am supposed to be doing anyway.

My dream is to one day leave corporate America and earn my living in the writing world. The greatest compliment I have received on my writing is this, “Jeanna you have the ability to say what we are all thinking in our minds but cannot communicate for ourselves.” There is no greater compliment as far as I am concerned, published or not. If it never happens from me, it won’t be because I didn’t try. 🙂

Welcome to my blog, please enjoy!

  3. Jeanna,

    Italy or Bust –

    You could have been talking about any of the grandmothers who lived on my block and my own , as well. Those words, “If I had the chance, I would go to Italy” – ring in my ear like an old favorite song. This is a wonderful thing that is going to happen to you and you grandmother. All the best in your travels … safe journey…!!!


    P.S. Thanks for stopping by and reading my story on my blog called “Love and Rage ” …
    sign up for my future postings. I’d love to hear from you. ~~~ : – )

    • I loved your story, Love and Rage, thought it was very cute… and realistic… I could feel the frustration. Thank you for all of your sweet comments about Italy and my family… i cannot wait to travel with her to watch her expressions as she sees things that she thought were only every going to be seen on tv or in books by her.

    You say that you’re not so good with the ‘About’ page but I have certainly enjoyed reading yours, mine on the other hand is extremely lacking but you should still call over and take a look inside My Gothic Realm as I am sure that there will be something in there that will whet your appetite, well maybe? 🙂 lol

    I will be calling back later to take a journey through your world of blogging, and I hope that you will call by too, whenever you have the opportunity of course? 🙂 Do have a wondrously exquisite rest of day and a lovely evening also 🙂

    Lady, I was looking for themes and blogs about life just to see how much I’m reflected on them. As you and many of us, I’m trying to express myself trough the blog writing. Writing and the behave of the human comunication is my passion, as much as the breeding of my two daughters (7 and 9 years). I’ve found today your blog. Definitly with the necessary spark to pick me up to go through your magic world. I’m preparing myself to my own adventure. I’ll invite you later! All the best. From Buenos Aires, Valeria.
