about me

Hi there! I'm Miranda.... 

Allow me to introduce myself....

I'm a 27 year old Mississippi girl who has recently moved from Chicago to a small town in rural Maine.

I’m a Southerner to the core, desperately trying to infiltrate the Midwest and North with my Southern ways.  This is seen most often in my extreme use of the grammatically correct contraction “y’all” and my passionate mission of introducing all Northern folk to the joys of sweet tea.  

I’m a Clinical Psychology doctoral student at Wheaton College (and completing my pre-doc internship at the University of Maine).  

I live with a Scottish Terrier named, Lady Darcy of Pemberley, and a Wire Fox Terrier, Sir Dashwood of Norland Bark.  Life is never boring. 

My blog is an attempt to keep family and friends up-to-date on my adventures, while allowing me to reflect and share the ways I'm growing and learning. There are no guidelines or limits.... simply me being me.  I will probably share a lot of my everyday silliness, along with my passions, dreams, and deep (or not-so-deep) thoughts.  I’m growing a lot these days, and I’d love to share what I’m learning on my journey towards becoming Miranda (check out  my first post).  I'm so excited for you to get to know me better, and I hope I can get to know you, too!

Thanks for stopping by and joining me on my life adventure!
