I am the fifth out of seven girls, born to Bill and Ellen Blose in August of 1966. My Daddy was a dairy farmer and my mom was and is everything else. I went to Virginia Tech and met my husband, Tony, one spring day in 1986 while singing with my band. We married in 1990, and figured out how to remain in love and to raise two kids on a teacher’s and struggling guitar player’s pay. It wasn’t always easy! In 2006, we left Virginia and moved to the Nashville, TN area for Tony’s music career. Tony had great success, but was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in 2010 and passed away in June of 2011.
In addition to being a Mom to Aaron, 17, and Lauren, 15, I have been a teacher for almost 24 years. I am also active in my church’s youth program, and I’m training to be a yoga instructor. I discovered my love of writing five years ago, and this blog is an attempt at carving out a new name for myself.
