Hello, I'm Emily. I grew up in the wild swamps of Florida, catching crawdads in Possum Creek. My family recently moved from small town, North Carolina to big city, Wisconsin. Yeah, it's cold. My husband, Byron, and I are college sweethearts (Go Catamounts). We are raising our daughter to have a proper southern accent and a love of zombies. I value good sleep (dog cuddles included), good books, a positive outlook, great food, and creativity. Feel free to follow me through the orchard and see what's sweet, where the persimmon tree shakes.
