about me

“Not all who wander are lost” comes from one of my favorite quotes by Tolkien.  I like it because a lot of times I feel like that quote describes me and my life.  I feel like I am often wandering, exploring, observing, experimenting, trying new things, and enjoying the journey.  And I’m still trying to learn to let God lead me.  I have realized that I don’t have the map, He does.  But sometimes I still think God lets me wander – and I know I’m not lost.

I have just started an exciting new part of my journey – and for the first time I’m traveling with someone.  I recently got married to a wonderful man and we moved to a little town in North Carolina for his new job.  I am learning my way around the town and learning how to be a good wife.  I am working at a local establishment and have fun hearing stories and getting to know all the characters who visit us.  I am gettng back into making more art and having fun decorating our home.  I’m loving Sonic and sweet iced tea that I get all the time down here.  I still talk too fast and overuse the word random. Anything else you’d like to know, please feel free to ask!          – Abi

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

–J.R.R Tolkein, “Lord of the Rings
