Hi, I’m Morgan Siler-Cecil.
Bluegrass Romance is a project to challenge myself as a mother, as a wife, and as a depression-prone woman, to live life with more adventure and romance. Every week I pull a new mini-mission out of a hat and vow to complete it before the week’s end.
This blog is about the experience of attempting and completing (god-willing) 52 mini-mission aimed at getting me and/or my family out doing new things in and around the bluegrass. It is a year long project beginning January 2010.
The project as a whole is an attempt to redefine adventure, romance and how to remain fully alive even when life attempts to steer you into deep ruts. Here is why I am doing it:
On a personal note:
I used to think my fairytale would take me to Italy to live forever–where I still believe wellsprings of romance and adventure are pumped straight into the water. As life would have it, I fell in love with a man who chose the charm of Kentucky instead. Here in the bluegrass is where we are starting a family, and here is where I must create a new vision of adventure and romance. Besides, Italian men may be sexy and mysterious, but none of them are as awesome and perfect for me as this guy. (Note: He is also sexy and mysterious. See proof here).
Cheers to the pursuit of romance and adventure– wherever and whomever you are.
