Hello world Welcome to our homes Tomorrow please…

Empire-Map-1

Hello world, Welcome to our homes. Unfold your maps and you’ll find your way to us.

It’s Sunday morning and I’m preparing for church. Before I leave, I wanted to tell you I just moved back to Tennessee after 2 years of living in California with a son. That was a great experience, living near the Pacific Ocean. However, I never managed to pull my roots out of Tennessee, and although I miss my sons and daughter-in-law, Tennessee is home. From here I’ll post everything about this beautiful south-east section of the United States.

Tomorrow you’ll meet all of us with our locations. We are an international covey writing for your pleasure. We’ll offer our best view of our land, culture, art, history and literature.

Shall we create categories now for our posts…
