About Mee

My name is Eden and I've been a writer since before I could write. I had to ask my dad to put the words down on paper for me when inspiration struck.

The initials of my first & middle names - and obviously my blog - are EE. This was also my nickname growing up. 

Thus, I sometimes modify the spelling of certain words to reflect that, such as poetree, funnee (haha,) and Dougee (my hubby's name is Doug.) 

...Are you wondering whether this is because I am very narcissistic, a little bit neurotic, or simply enjoy the act of reinventing the English language one word at a time? 

Well, the world may never know.

But most likely it's (d) All of the above.

Anyhoo, now that I've clarified all that for you, we can get down to the fundamentals:

  • Born and raised in the incomparably gorgeous San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California. (Hence, my total obsession with mountains, trees, and all other things woodland. Seriously.)
  • Now living in a Suburbia-meets-the-Country sort of town, up in Northern Utah. (Something had to humble me, right? Just kidding, I love it here. Bloom where you're planted!)
  • In between #'s 1 and 2, I have moved a total of 23 times in my life (...I think. You kinda lose track at like #14 or so.)
  • I'm in my mid-to-late 30s, and despite a few close brushes with death, now feel like I'm finally in my "prime" ...and it's only getting better!
  • Married to my bestestest friend in the whole wide world, who also happens to be my biggest (estest) fan too.
  • We have 3 beautiful children. I'm not bragging here, guys. Gorgeous by no fault of my own; everyone tells me they look nothing like me! Our daughter, 13, is from my first marriage, and we have a 7-yr-old son and a darling 2-yr-old comedian/toddler. 
  • We also have a ridiculously large Malamute named Sequoia, a hamster named Mistletoe, and three dwarf bunnies: S'moreo, Spot and Chestnut.
  • I love the best things in life - God, my hubby, my babies (of both the smooth and the furry variety) - and of course, reading and writing. With a passion.
  • I'm also quite taken with natural healing, yoga, meditation, hiking, camping, sketching, photography, and intensive, OCD-fueled homemaking. 
So maybe that's more than you care to know. 

But then again, maybe you're just all the more fascinated and can't wait to find out more! (I'm okay with make-believe. This is the Internet, after all.) 

No seriously though. If you're still dying of curiosity - morbid or otherwise - just subscribe and...
