So this About Me section is harder for me to write than an actual post.

About me…hmmm. I’ve been blogging for a little over 2 years and still can’t bring myself to say out loud that I’m a blogger. I’ve written 2 children’s books, Rooster’s Balloon and The Forgotten Ornament, both released this year and I still have a hard time calling myself an author. I’m comfortable saying I’m a nurse because I’ve been one for 13 years, albeit very part time these days.

I’ve got 3 kids and a husband who challenge ALL my mental states and evoke ALL my emotions. They inspire much of my writing even though I don’t write about them specifically very often. My faith is also a heavy inspiration behind much of what I write. I also enjoy writing about ridiculous observations and the funny little happenings of everyday life. Because, ya’ll, people are funny and crazy.

Thanks to all who give it a read!

    Hi Courtney, I just ordered an autographed copy of your book and was wondering if you could personalize it. I would love to email you the details if possible, or you can email me and I will reply: elizabethlarrabee@me.com. Thank you! Betsy
