Friend Of The Week – Cathy

Curious As A Cathy

She was raised in the Appalachian mountains of Southern West Virginia and dubbed a “child bride” when she married her childhood sweetheart many moons ago. Determined to make a fabulous life for herself in spite of the naysayers in her community, she moved to Knoxville Tennessee, earned her A.S. in Computer Programming, and worked as a Computer Systems Manager until she took an early retirement to raise her first child.

Now – more than 25 years later – this stay-at-home-mom has successfully home-schooled three children and watched them spread their wings and fly out of the nest.

Did I mention she also managed to write a children’s book as well?

Meet Cathy – the down-home blogger behind Curious As A Cathy!

Cathy loves life, meeting new people, and sharing her personal experiences on her blog! As you might have gathered from her blog’s name, she’s extremely curious about life, and you’ll find an eclectic collection of gorgeous photography, evocative music, interesting writing, and more on her blog! She loves connecting with others through fun memes and fascinating blog hops as well, so if you are looking for new places to build connections, you’ll enjoy exploring her blog!

Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you brighten Cathy’s day and treat yourself to the gift of friendship by dropping by her blog, introducing yourselves, and congratulating her for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?
