A Year in Asheville

A Year in Asheville

I'm originally from Chicago, but my heart has always been in the Highlands. My first visit to Asheville, North Carolina, was in 1990. Ever since, it has been my dream to live in this amazing city. This year that dream came true. To chronicle it, I've created A-Year-In-Asheville.

Some have called it the Paris of the South. The Sedona of the Southern Highlands. An island in a sea of insanity. It is what you make it. And almost everyone agrees that it's a great place to live. I hope this little blog can reflect some of what goes on in our little corner of the world.

Edgy Mama

Edgy Mama

Hi there! I created Edgy Mama in 2005 while attempting to resurrect my writing career, which had suffered from grievous neglect while I was birthing babies. The blog helped me rediscover my writing edge. Now I’m a fairly successful freelance writer, columnist, photographer and blogga. I do write about kids and parenting here. But also I dish about beer, chocolate, writing, books, climate change, mad squirrels, my Dorkie Poo mutt, Biscuit, and my two marmalade cats, Rocky and Houdini.

Hangover Journals

The Hangover Journals

Post hippie, post punk, post the fun years, but still striving for perpetually adolescent party girl nirvana despite being laden with two kids (okay one's grown but she moved back home) and assorted animals and deepest poverty.

Hillbilly Savants

Hillbilly Savants

This blog is about our Appalachia - the real one, not the Hollywood-stereotype nor the third-world nation-esque stereotype being sold by do-gooders, or even the neo-Romantic sylvan stereotype that Rousseau would probably buy into.

It should be interesting.

She Who Eats

She Who Eats

When I die, the thing I will miss the most is going out to eat. I spend most of my days trying to avoid eating out every single meal. My dream in life is to create a sushi roll named after myself…

Scrutiny Hooligans

Scrutiny Hooligans

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
-- Samuel Adams
