welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-follower, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.

all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...

Montana

we were in Montana for 2 weeks. i'll post more pictures soon. here are some random thots, things that happened, in no apparent order

** 2 weeks is too long for a vacation. 10 days would have been better

** i had breakfast with Tricia Goyer. what a fun, beautiful lady. it's always nice to meet other writers.

** Montana is beautiful... and so big i don't think i'll ever see all of it... but we tried to see a lot of it on this trip.

** driving around in a car made for 4 small adults rather than 4 tall people and an 8 year old made me appreciate my Excursion. i kissed it when we got home early this morning.

** i've never seen so many horses. my daughter was thrilled - and so was my husband. i think he had horse envy several times.
** flying into Mesa at 12 midnight is no fun, esp. when you thought you were going to be home by 9:15 and you had to be diverted into Las Vegas to avoid thunderstorms that shut down 2 airports. i don't like flying into or out of Las Vegas. turbulence over Lake Mead is nauseating.

** there really is no place like home. glad to be back.
