Hi, I’m Anne. I’m a writer, dreamer, coffee addict, wife, and dog mom who grew up in the North Carolina mountains. In 2013, I moved to West Virginia to begin my career with a conservation organization dedicated to protecting one of the world’s most famous long-distance hiking trails. I wasn’t expecting to meet my future husband soon after I arrived, but it happened, and life hasn’t been the same since. We still live in the Mountain State, but life will soon bring us back to the place I called home for more than two decades. In July 2020 we purchased almost 47 acres of family land on top of a mountain in Madison County, North Carolina, and over the next few years we will build our dream cabin (and life) in the woods. This is our journey.
