Hi, there! I’m Kristen.
In 2013, I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in English and American Studies. I managed my family’s Christmas tree farm for three years, but fate had entirely different plans for me, and in 2017 I married the love of my life–a tall, dark and handsome Air Force pilot. We recently moved from Del Rio, Texas to Ramstein, Germany, and are exploring Europe with our rescue dog, Ralph.
The name for the blog came to me one day when I was envisioning a place to document our family’s memories and adventures. We have lived in a tiny 1-bedroom house and now live in a (thankfully more spacious) German rental for three years. A forever home with a big front porch and a true dining room table, a place our grown children will someday return for holidays is just a glimmer on a very distant horizon. But for now, the blog and our family can go anywhere together. Thus, Hartsfield House.
Welcome to this space. I’m absolutely delighted you came to visit. Feel free to pour another cup of coffee, sit a spell, and read awhile.
I’ll be here, always, writing.
