Friend Of The Week – LuAnn

LuAnn Braley

This week, we are heading to Kentucky to hang out with LuAnn Braley of Back Porchervations – the cozy, homespun blog where life happens on the back porch !

The first thing you’ll learn about LuAnn just from the name of her blog is that she loves words – reading them, writing them, creating them! If you enjoy eclectic reads, you’ll delight in Back Porchervations, as LuAnn regularly shares not only her favorite books, products and memes, but also articles that helps people deal with life issues and be successful in their chosen endeavors!

LuAnn is a native-born Pennsylvanian who’s a wife and mom to 3 children. She currently holds a BS in Finance and is working on a Master’s Degree in Writing and Appalachian Studies.

Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you drop by, explore LuAnn’s blog, and congratulate LuAnn for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

  1. Thanks for hosting! Hope you and your family have a Happy Easter 🙂

  2. thanks for hosting another great party. To answer the question after discovering art journaling I think I’d go back if I go learn more about mixed media art. I really enjoy when I can do it Happy Easter Everyone

    I thought I should get on the stick with my Friday post so I could link up here early. I am so excited, Ramona. Thank you so much!

    In answer to your question of the week, I love the Appalachian Studies courses. There is so much rich culture in the area that often gets overlooked because we are mostly rural. So much of it is withering away because it has not been recorded. I hope to change that.

  5. Victoria says:

    If I went back to school I would go to law school. Our blog is written by my daughter and myself and we discuss life situations from each of our own views.

  6. Tammy says:

    Thank you for hosting the party.

    I am a child of the King who has been on a long road of healing because of my own stubbornness. My blog was borne out of my love for God and the many people He wants to reach with His love and promises. Married for 36 years to my love (I call him Roadrunner on my blog!)

    At almost 60, I have stayed away from any college. However, I would love to go for either massage therapy or esthetics (skin care) as I have actually been doing these things for years on my own. I have been making my own lotions and skin care for about 20 years and it is very healing. Also, soaps and other things like that.

    Thank you for hosting! Happy Easter!

    I ‘met’ LuAnn before – and lost track. Now I’ll hop over to revisit her. Thanks for this.

  9. Jed says:

    Thanks for hosting another fantastic link-up! Love the picture of the hammock and porch. What a great place to unwind and dream up new posts. Wishing you a very happy Friday!

  10. Thanks for hosting and Have a great Easter.

    If I were to go back to school, I would take the one class I need to finish my second degree in Ethnic Studies/African-American Studies. Then I would get a third degree in history.

  11. Sherry says:
