I am a small-town woman with a gypsy soul. I grew up pretty rough and tumble. This led me to my love for books, and eventually led to writing.
That one little noun can bring on so many different images to one’s mind. Do you think of “Orphan Annie”? Do you think about children who are poor, hungry, and are covered in ratty clothes and dirt? Do you have pity in your heart for a child who has no parents? Cinderella, The Little Princess, Snow White, Oliver Twist, Peter Pan, etc. are all stories that have been told from generation to generation. Our hearts go out to these characters in the stories. We are drawn to their pain and want to help them, or we are angry at the villains who make their lives living hell. However, we rarely carry these same empathetic feelings to the real people in our lives.

I grew up in the South. I was usually isolated from neighbors and friends. One particular place cannot describe my home. We moved all over Arkansas and sometimes went back to the same places multiple times. My parent's divorced during my early childhood. Both parents were either drug addicts or alcoholics. They found their comfort in those idols or in other people.
Who can go wrong when it comes to Beer, Bacon, Cheese, and Bread? This is a friend of mine's recipe that she shared with me. You can forget your Paleo, Keto, No Carb diet for this delish dish.
