I don’t sit still well. I do best when I have goals and projects to keep me focused and engaged. To keep me grounded in a happy place I bake, cook, sew occasionally, craft, take pictures, walk the dog, read and garden. In all honesty, I don’t share well. Any friend I have will tell you this is so. I don’t share desserts and I don’t share feelings. So, what the hell am I doing here?! This blog is my outlet and creative space.
Someday, I’d love to have a diner, I think. So as I cook and bake and experiment, in the back of my mind I’m wondering if I can serve this to 25 people? So, Lula Harp is my alter-ego. She is the harnessed side of my ADD creativity, at least I’d like to think that. She has a bit more focus and a bit more panache. In real life, I’m a goofball on the go!
In short, I’m a witty, sarcastic word-nerd. I’m a foodie and crafty. I’ve recently moved back to the south. While my roots are in Mississippi, after almost 25 years in Portland, I’m having serious culture shock. I spend my spare time compiling recipes I want to try, reading about restaurants I want to visit, and pondering life’s quirks.
Copyright… I spend a great deal of time on this, so PLEASE do not steal my words or my images. If you want to use something, please ask. I’ll probably share.
I’d love to say this photo represented my dream cafe, but no… this is another Lula’s cafe. I just bogarted her sign.
