My name is Janelle. I am a solid 23 years old and enjoy spending time with my little family. As of right now our crew consists of my high school sweetheart husband, our chocolate lab, two cats and myself. My heart is full, pet food bill is high, and life is well...crazy. I have always enjoyed writing and though social media is a great place to share thoughts, I feel long posts that fill peoples feed may not be my best outlet. I have sat on the idea of starting a blog for a while now, but I thought it would fade. It in fact, has not. Flowers and thorns is inspired by life, it's a metaphor. We all have both flowers and thorns that we navigate through in the bushes of life. I hope something I write can help you either navigate or feel less alone in the journey. So welcome, I am glad you are here.
