My blog name is actually a portmanteau of my first and middle name. I don’t remember who coined it but while my grandmother was alive, grandpa used it to differentiate between me and her to remedy the confusion. I’m the eldest of four kids and still single. *:D big grin
I enjoy photography, fiber arts (sewing, tatting, crochet, knitting, making my own yarn), video games, reading, creative writing, and a bit of drawing. I like to work with computers a bit, working with the hardware that is. It’s a skill that’s helped me extend the life of PCs and latops by replacing parts. I like camping and spending time in nature when it isn’t so blasted cold or too hot. I love thunderstorms and the sound of running water, they are very calming to me.
I mostly like instrumental music and soundtracks. A few of the artists that I like are Enya, Yanni, David Lanz, Mannheim Steamroller, George Winston, Lindsey Stirling (a deviation from what I usually listen to), Amethystium, Loreena McKennit, Enigma and Yoko Kanno.
My favorite hymn is “Be Still My Soul.” I love the medley “As Sisters in Zion/We’ll Bring the World His Truth,” and the songs “Prayer of the Children, ” “What Heaven Sees In You,” “Better Than a Hallelujah,” and “Broken Things.”
My name is Blythe. (I quite like my name–it means happy).
I love to write…poetry, stories, you name it, I like to write it! I also immensely enjoy reading. I go through (on average) about 15 books a month. Maybe more. You never know with an avid bookworm like me. My current literary project is to read as many of the classics as I can. And no, I don’t have a favorite book. There are too many to choose just one! A few of my many favorites are Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis, Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery, the Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner, and the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson.
I love the French language, which I’m learning to speak. Music is a joy in my life as well. I play the piano and flute and hope to learn the violin one day. I also love singing, and acting–recently discovered loves, both of them, but just as loved as the old ones :) I also enjoy photography. Basically, I love expressing myself.
My favoritest people in the entire world live in my house and/or are related to me, and my other favoritest people are my theater friends and, of course, my Young Women friends and leaders. Love all of them–so blessed to know so many amazing people!
Last but definitely not least I love the Gospel. I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints–“I’m a Mormon. I know it. I live it. I love it.” I have a testimony of God’s love for me and each of His children. I know He has a plan for each and every one of us, and I know He hears and answers our prayers.
Thank you for coming by!
