A note about Felicity

Hello everyone!

I figured there was no better was to start off my “Felicity Facts” page than with facts about your’s truly.

Fact #1: I live in Ohio right now! I started an East Coast girl but the Midwest has captured my heart (at least for now).

Fact #2: I love to read! I blame my mother for introducing me to historical fiction. The rest, they say, is history.

Fact #3: I actually wrote a novel back in high school but it was complete trash, so we don’t talk about that any more.

Fact #4: I love to cook! Stay tuned, because I may be posting some of my favorite recipes on this blog.

Fact #5: I don’t own any dogs, but would love to one day. For now, I get my canine fix by walking dogs at the local shelter. See this handsome fellow above for proof of how wonderful dogs are.
