Meet Devra

Thanks for stopping by the Pomeroy Life! Let me introduce myself.  I am Devra, the main author here at the Pomeroy Life. I like long talks, walks on the beach and romantic picnics at sunset.  Kidding!  I do like a good sunset though =).   Especially ones at Will’s family’s farm like these:

I am a wordy person and consequently a wordy writer.  Hang with me.  I am working on it.  I want you to understand who I am and why I invest a lot of time into this blog.  I have a lot of friends and family scattered around the nation/world.  I started blogging one summer when I was in China as a way to stay in touch with my friends and family.  Turns out I enjoy blogging, so I stuck with it.  I hope you will subscribe and stick with us as we go on our everyday adventures.

Sometimes I wonder why I publicize so much of our lives.  Aside from the fact that a clause in our vows was that I am in charge of PR for our little family, I really do ask myself – why do I share so much via social media?  It’s not to brag or make Will and I seem awesome.  It’s not to try to put forth an image that isn’t us.  I do it because I have friends and family everywhere who I want to include in our lives.   I do this because it helps me savor the grand life that God has blessed me with.  I do it in hopes that something about our lives can be a blessing to someone else – near or far.

If you were to follow me around the things you would notice are:

  • my inherent klutziness and innate ability to make a mess, usually of myself.
  • I function purely because of coffee till the clock strikes noon.
  • I enjoy exercisingWill tells me that I am a recovering jock.  Really I am an actual jock still; but that works out for me because Will thinks sweats and V-necks is an attractive style!  What can I say; I picked good! I run a lot, especially with the dog.
  • I really like to cook and love to bake (not a good combo with the messy thing).  In fact, I not only love doing it, but baking is also the way that I show love to other people.  Every moment is best enjoyed with something to eat.
  • Consequently, you probably would not make it through a day of stalking me without uncovering the fact that I am gluten intolerant.  So for all you other Gluten Free people out there, a lot of my recipes will be things that you can use!
  • I am a people person, and have a hunger for being busy.  I CANNOT sit still…. never have been able to get that adult behavior down.
  • I am also a bit of a hippy.
  • Also, I am a Christian.  I love Jesus and love His creation.  I love taking walks, going for hikes, working outside, traveling, and having flowers around – anything to marvel at creation.

I graduated from a small Christian College in Kansas with a degree in Cross-Cultural Studies.  I love culture and travel so why not?!  Currently I am working as an administrative assistant.  BUT I just started the long journey of going back to school to become a Registered Dietitian.  Being a jock, being gluten free, and Will’s love for agriculture makes me extremely interested in nutrition.  So here’s to hopefully making a career out of it!
