Hello, everyone! Welcome to my new blog, Peach Blossoms and Stardust.
What inspired the name?
Well… Peach Blossoms, because I am from Georgia! Also, according to something I found on Google, the peach blossom flower symbolizes the sweetness of life, loving life and being captivated or challenged with finding sweetness in your world. One thing I will strive to do with this blog is to be an encouragement and a light. I recently had a friend tell me that I have a gift for people – I leave them with more than they had when they met me. I don’t know if that’s true, but it is certainly something I strive to do.
And Stardust? I’ll be 100% straightforward and honest… I am a classic movie and tv show NUT!! Oh, and music! So, I’m sure some of my posts will include the entertainment industry. And who knows – I might even try to interview some people! We’ll just see where this goes.
Ok, so a little about me.
My name is Kerri Brown.
As previously stated, I am a Georgia girl, born and raised! I was saved when I was 5 yrs old, and through all of the trials and tribulations of life, God has never failed to prove Himself faithful! I didn’t have many friends growing up, so I would go through times of being very lonely. My mom would always say, “Draw closer to God.” Not exactly the answer I wanted to hear, but each time I did, I found that He more than filled the void. He has truly been a Friend that sticks closer than a brother to me.
“…these are a few of my favorite things!”
Yes, I did just use a quote from one of my favorite movies of all time! The Sound of Music!
I already told y’all that I love classic films and tv shows. I also love music and singing! I am one of these rare people that can sorta relate to musicals… I almost could break out into song in the middle of the street! Don’t worry – I don’t actually do that! But since music and singing runs in my family, I guess it’s only natural for me to love it!
I also like to dabble in a bit of amateur photography… but I’m definitely no pro! If I get a chance to go hiking or something, you can be pretty sure I’ll have my phone out taking pictures! (This particular photo is from Brasstown Bald – the highest point in Georgia. I got to go there for the first time a couple of months ago, and it is GORGEOUS!!)
One last tidbit about me for now… I actually AM a writer! In 2016, I published my first book (poetry), Thoughts From My Heart. In December of 2017, I had the thrill of publishing my first novel, cowritten with my dear friend Cleopatra Thomas. Love in the Rain is an inspirational frontier love story. Currently, a sequel to this novel is in the works, and I can’t wait to share it with y’all!
I am very excited to continue this blogging journey! Thank y’all so much for following along!
Love and Prayers,
