Hi y’all! I’m Leesa Cross-Smith, a homemaker. I’m from Kentucky and I’m sentimental and easily startled. And most days, if you opened my heart door it would look like this:
I write flash and short fiction, sometimes longer. I wrote a book called Every Kiss A War. My resting face used to get me in trouble a lot when I was a kid because I seem angry and/or upset when really I’m just thinking about cheese dip or baseball. SEE?
I do love cheese dip and baseball and this Nabokov quote: The softness and fragility of baby animals caused us the same intense pain. And this verse: But as for me, I will always have hope. Psalm 71:14.
I also love bro country and a lot of other music that scares people off. My fave album of the year is Montevallo by a guy called Sam Hunt. This song/video? I love it a lot. I like to put things like this out there from jump so people know what they’re dealing with. For example, I’ve been to 25+ DMB concerts. *crickets*
For those of you still reading, I LOVE YOU LIKE EX OH. I also love sports emotions! I’m highly sensitive and need to come home and take naps when I have to be around people for long periods of time. My favorite TV shows are Sons of Anarchy and Vikings and they’re not all that different. The leading men in those shows are also my two celebrity crushes and their characters are prettymuch the same and the actors look alike too. Idk what this says about me. I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for fifteen years and I went to a performing arts high school like the school on Fame so now you also know I’m at least thirtysomething. I do my eyeliner even when I know I’m not leaving the house and I am looking forward to reading all of the things here, yes yes y’all!
