My Dear Reader,
To my world of reveries…
To my mind of many things…
To my heart of creativity…
To my spirit of faith…
To my cottage of friendship.
For a tiny introduction to this little corner of the world, here you will indulge in a variety of topics – ranging from biblical thoughts and cultural issues to homemaking/DIY ideas, life hacks, book reviews, random interesting tidbits, comic relief, and much more. Make sure to check back every weekend for my weekly posts!
For a slight introduction to this little author, I am Sveta, and I am a 19-year-old, Christ-serving, people-loving daughter of the King, and I aim to give my Lord praise in all I do and say.
Here are a few things you should know about me as we start our journey together:
1.) As mentioned above, I am a Christ-following, Jesus-serving believer in the One true God and this blog is completely family friendly – so you will never have to worry about bad language or uncanny ideas coming your way.
2.) I was homeschooled, and I had been since 3rd grade (shout-out to all my homeschool buddies). Now, I am a nursing student at Palm Beach Atlantic University (shoud-out to all my fellow Sailfish).
3.) I am an avid reader, bibliophile, library-lover, quote-compiler, and anything else wordy (shout-out to all my fellow Bookdragons).
4.) I am a retired Spelling Bee competitor (shout-out to all my fellow Spelling Bee Champs).
5.) I am a Grammarista, and I love all things English and grammar related (not to be confused with Grammar Nazis…).
6.) I am somewhat of a language connoisseur – I spoke Ukrainian/Russian until I was 7, and I have studied Spanish for going on 11 years now, Latin for 8.5 years, Greek for 2, Russian for 1 year (trying to pick it back up), French for 6 months, and now I’m trying to learn German off-and-on on my own time. I also studied ASL (American Sign Language) and Indian Sign Language in 4th/5th grade, but unfortunately I have forgotten most of it.
7.) I competed primarily in gymnastics, swimming, track and soccer, but I have also played baseball and flag football in recreational settings.
8.) I am country, classy, and a die-hard country music fan.
9.) I am a die-hard horse-lover.
10.) I am now your friend, so please feel free to ask me anything! I enjoy tailoring my writing to my reader’s interests, so please feel free to comment and/or contact me if you would like me to write a specific kind of post (short story, poem, etc.) or a specific post on a specific topic/issue (abortion, taxes, life/death, etc.) I can’t promise to always write what you ask, but I can definitely promise to consider it!
I am very excited to have you on this journey with me, and I cannot wait to share all the wonderful things that God teaches me as I grow. May you enjoy discovering the beauty of life as much as I do!
Happy reading, Blessings, and Smiles!
