Hi y’all. I’m Renee` Melissa. I was born a Florida girl but have spent close to half my short but meaningful life in Tennessee.
I live in the rural country-side just West of Nashville, which I love. I love the culture of the area.
Not just Nashville, but the South as a whole. I’m a southern girl all the way and I love my roots. The history of my home. The heat of the summer. The magnolia trees. My two bloodhounds in the backyard that remind me of Alabama, where I spent a great deal of time growing up. I love everything about it down here. Almost everything. I love the fried chicken and biscuits, but I’ll be honest, I don’t entirely love that so many people survive entirely off that awesome fried soul food because
I am also an organic farmer.
I believe in what I do. I live on a three-generation farm/ranch where we raise grass-fed cattle and a great portion of our own food. NarrowGateFarms is home to myself, my Daddy and Mamma, the younger of my two brothers – Seth, my Grandaddy, and soon-to-be one more little Stokes.
We attempt to worship the Lord here on our land in everything we do.
A daughter… of quirky awesome parents and of the king. As well as sister and friend to whoever wants one.
