Hey Y'all

Hey!  This is my second attempt at starting a blog and I have had it on my heart and mind for a while to get another start on it.  I have so much to learn about all of this, so bear with me.  My name is Kim, I  live in a small town in northeast Georgia called Elberton.  The Granite Capitol of the World is our claim to fame around here.  Yes, we are sitting on lots of beautiful granite that is quarried out and turned into beautiful creations and memorials for all over the world.  I am happy to be from a small town.  My family roots are strong and I have many great friends here that I have known since I was born and many I have made along the way.  I am a respiratory therapist at our small rural hospital where I have proudly worked for the last 22 years now.  I am happily married and have two grown and married daughters, Kayla and Brooke.  I am a Mimi to three grandchildren, two boys and a two month old baby girl.  I love to write and journal things and I have lots of stories and thoughts that are constantly going through my mind, stories about my life and adventures and I love encouraging others and making them feel positive about life no matter what is going on.  I pondered over a name for my blog for quite a while and wanted something catchy but also that related to me and what I wanted to represent.  I am a plus size lady and I like to say I am fat and happy, because I love to eat!!! I know that I can do better and get in shape and healthier and I just might do that one of these days, but it doesn't control me. I love butterflies and the symbol of emerging that they represent and their gentle beauty and grace, so I figured I would put that all together and see how it goes. I am so excited to get started and share my life and encouragement with y'all!!! And yes I love the use Y'all, it is one of my favorites and I just can't help it! Thanks for reading my intro and let me know what you think, I would love to hear from you!
