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...

It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else. ~ Erma Bombeck

The dream you don’t fight for will haunt you for the rest of your life. ~ from the movie Robots

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Those who say it cannot be done should get out of the way of those who are doing it. ~ Anonymous

and leave a trail. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Good ones. Especially like the Michael Hyatt quote. Funny how just a one line quote can inspire us. That's why I'm glad people are out there busy thinking - so we can inspire one another. 8-)
