Originally from Western North Carolina, I spent the last 10 years in New Orleans. At the close of my decade there I met the love of my life, a Virginia boy and we decided life in the city was eventually going to leave us burnt out and ran down. We were homesick for the mountains, trees and endless adventure of a darkened wood. It was time to leave the sirens, grime and crime behind. We moved into a little house on several acres, deep in the woods and began getting back to our roots.
