Hello, Dear Friend.  My name is Stacy and it is my dear wish that we get to know one another. 

The Subtle Details is about family, faith, friendship, traditions, food, heritage, and those simple pleasures not found for purchase in any store.  

I wish to share with you family stories in the hope you will identify the thread that binds us all into a greater family.

I wish to share my faith.  Faith in a God bigger than any challenge we may face.  Faith learned at my mother's knee, from my father's simple prayers, and from many a fine preacher.

I wish to share the recipes passed down through my family for generations.  Recipes as simple as fluffy, buttermilk biscuits and as complicated as a multi-stepped raspberry chocolate mousse cake.

I wish to share my heritage.  My family arrived in Virginia in 1613 on the Treasurer.  They left a legacy in North Carolina, touched history in Tennessee, and, eventually, made their way into Kentucky shortly after it became a state.

Many family traditions can be traced back to those who came before.  I hope to share those traditions with you.

With the steady decline in family and those skills which defined a real lady, it is my dearest wish to pay tribute to those great ladies who came before.

I hope you will visit often and will share your lives with me.  We have so much to learn from each other.

Welcome to The Subtle Details...

    I really like the theme of your blog, its very close to my own blog topics. Its unfortunate you never continued to post because, as I said, the idea is great.
