Hello there!


I’d like to make an immediate disclaimer- I’m not an eloquent writer with good structure and adventure in each of my posts. However, I still love writing. So I write, and I’m humbled that there are people who read it. Do so at your own risk.

I’ve enjoyed tablets, pens, and pencils ever since I was a little girl. I wrote many silly things. As I became older I focused more on poems. Some good. Some lame. After I became a Mom, I mostly neglected writing. But it was with a sense of sadness I would think upon the started stories and ideas to write, that I just let lay. Furthermore, I didn’t know where to send my pieces. But I still liked to write. After my husband’s suggestion and prodding for me to start blogging, I decided to pickup my writing again. And it’s good to have a reason to write.

Home life, organization, and natural/healthy living are all things I take an interest in, so that’s a lot of what’s posted. Above all, I want my blog to honor God. He is the One who gave me the desire to write. And He is the One who gave me life- both physical and spiritual!

About my blog name- of windowsills and breezy hills. We live in Southeast Nebraska. We love the community and countryside here. It is spacious! Gently rolling hills. Brimming with rich farmland. Precise rows of corn and beans by the thousands. And the wind!! Wind is an integral part of the weather out here! Especially in the spring the breezes blow strong. Sometimes we have several days straight of gusty winds! I’ve learned the challenges of hanging up laundry in these conditions. It takes an abundance of clothes pins if you want garments to stay “online”! (It definitely takes more than excellent internet service!)

I am a firm believer in fresh air and love opening my windows to the airy breezes. Even in winter I occasionally deem it necessary to air out the house! If there’s been sickness or a host of people in my house, I feel a significant need to reduce the germs with fresh air!

I really like the windowsills part because it depicts a house and my writings are often practical, everyday things. Another reason I liked windowsills is because it rhymes with breezy hills and this girl loves a good rhyming phrase!
