It's A Blizzard (well, sort of) . . .

Saturday, January 29, 2011

The snow started last night and blessed us with another inch or two of fluffy sparkles and this morning I just launched a snazzy new writer's website. What better time than the present to (re-)introduce myself as part of the Blizzard Bloghop?!

If you're new around these parts, I'm Ada, a twenty-something freelance writer, tucked away in northern Minnesota woods. I live the life many writers dream of. I spend my days sitting at a desk watching the sun rise and set over a scenic wilderness lake while writing articles and commentaries, working on creative prose of all sorts of lengths, blogging, and working as a small museum manager. Of course being 55 miles away from a grocery store or washing machine makes living the dream a little more complicated. The conundrum of  making a life out of woods and words is where the blog comes in . . .
I live with Andy and we spend a lot of our free time taking in the natural beauty that surrounds us. I love to travel and have lived in England and Ireland. I'm always up for a good road trip, or any trip for that matter. 

Around the cabin, we try to live as self-sufficiently as possible. If you've been around since this past summer, you already know all about my obsession with picking blueberries. We also garden and hunt and try to keep the freezers and shelves stocked with homemade food.
During the quiet winter evenings, I love to knit and read, as well as snuggle up with the Netflix du jour. I try to approach the world in an informed manner with a sense of humor. To me, life is about noticing and enjoying the little things: the colorful flock of birds at the feeder, a blueberry pie, or a sentence edited to death until it reads just right.

Now it's your turn. Leave me a comment, introduce yourself, and please, do come again!


  1. well, hello there. am i the first to come over from the Blizzard Blog Hop?

    I love the picture in the header. It very much reminds me of a small island in the center of a Maine lake, where my husband and I honeymooned.

    It's good to meet you and your blog. Enjoy the rest of the blog hop.

  2. Well, you looked snowed in & perfect for this bloghop! :> And you're right, you do sound like you're living a writer or artists' dream. I am looking forward to visiting more and seeing what else is going on in your woods and with your words! :> Thanks for saying hello and helping me out!!

  3. Greetings from Alaska! I am glad I came across to your blog through the Blizzard Bloghop.

  4. Hi Ada! I am Katja from Germany. Writing on in German (but the page can be translated by widget). I am writing about what I do - my live with my little children and working my new job, being a housewife managing a little family business... Sounds like a great blog you have there. I will be back for sure! Katja

  5. Hey Ada!

    You know me.. so I won't go into that. But I do need to tell you I want to move in with you. Hope you don't mind. It just sounds too pretty not to. If it helps, I love Netflix too and I don't know how to knit, but I want to learn!

    So.. when can I move in? :]

  6. Ada, wow. I seriously am just slightly jealous of your life lol. I'm stopping by from the Blizzard BlogHop and am definitely following -- I can't wait to read more about your adventures!


  7. I just found your blog and love it! I'm also very happy with my placement in life. Many folks can't say that!

    I'll be back to read more.... Keep up the great work!

  8. The picture of you? walking in the snow is amazing...

    I feel like I connect with people by blog because I'm out "in the country", but you are seriously out looks beautiful...

  9. Have tried to comment here a few times, but I notice that my comments to some blogs just do not post. Not sure if it's my WordPress account or some other settings, but here I am, trying again.

    Like Katja, I live in Germany, but am just about ready to buy some land in Brimson, MN, just down the road a piece from you. Looking forward to a bit more solitude, a bit more winter and a bit more snow.

    Viele Grüße aus Unterlüß from Paula
