Get to know Michele

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Michele and I’m glad you’re here!

Let me tell you a little about myself. I live in the beautiful hills of East Tennessee with my amazing country-boy husband. I adore him. I really do. My 2 sons and their families are my very heartbeat, and my treasures. I love hearing the name “Mimi”. It means I get to cuddle and snuggle and giggle with my granddaughter. She makes me constantly aware that I am leaving a legacy.

I love music and singing, travel and exploration, fireflies on a summer evening, and a crackling fire on a cold morning–the little things that make life full of wonder. And laughing. I love laughing–especially at myself. I love sparkle and I believe in leaving a little of it everywhere I go.
