My name is Anna Franklin Smith and I am:  1.  A sinner saved by God’s grace  2. Wife and helper to Wes  3. Mom to Rand and one on the way from China 4. Sister, step-sister, daughter, granddaughter, cousin, etc. – in love with our growing extended family!!!

I am also a writer of sorts, blogger, marketer, co-owner of a real estate investment company and,  in my spare time, I like to rearrange the furniture in the house and take walks around our town with Wes, Rand and our sweet dog Nina!  I’m a voracious reader, known to have an extra-ordinary sense of smell and am the most content when I can be within 50 yds of water.  I especially love Thanksgiving (picture from Thanksgiving 2009), Tar Heel basketball and anything with (organic) cheese.  You can usually find me making a mess in the kitchen…also home to my washer and dryer, computer and desk.

Recently, I joined forces with Beautycounter, on a mission to get safe products into the hands of everyone!

Got any questions, comments or advice?  I’d love to hear from you.
