6 reasons I chose “Self-care” as my 2019 theme

After a tough 2017, I was hoping that 2018 would provide a bit of a break for Miles and me. I should’ve know it would be anything but after our only vehicle was totaled early in the year (read Ode to Miles’ Truck). I didn’t really get a chance to sit down and reflect onContinue Reading “6 reasons I chose “Self-care” as my 2019 theme”

#GGJourneytotheCastle

A little over a month ago I decided it was time to knock something off my bucket list. Sounds simple, right? Well, lemme tellya what that bucket list item is. I’m training to run a half marathon.

I do. I really really do.

Estimated reading time: 5 minutes (unless you look at the pictures!) I often preach the importance of balance. It’s something I struggle to keep in my own life, so I am constantly thinking about it and trying to figure out ways to better balance out myself. Well…one of the major things in my life thatContinue Reading “I do. I really really do.”

Bye Bye Cold, Hello Heat!

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes I’m trading snow boots for flip flops. …white snow for white sand beaches. …vast mountain views for vast ocean views. …negative temps for mid 70s. …thin, dry air for salty, humid air. That’s right… WE ARE MOVING! Honestly, it’s quite bittersweet. I’ve been waiting for this day to come forContinue Reading “Bye Bye Cold, Hello Heat!”

Ode to Miles’ Truck

Today is a sad day. I can remember the first time I ever got to ride in Miles’ truck. He was dropping me off at my car after we saw our mutual friend, CJ, sing at Tootsie’s in Nashville on a Sunday afternoon. And the second time? It was for my first ever camping tripContinue Reading “Ode to Miles’ Truck”

#LookBack2015

2015 was an incredibly huge year in my life and I can only imagine what 2016 will hold! When 2015 started, I made several resolutions (that I actually stuck with) but overall, I proclaimed that this year would be a year that I dedicate to finding “me”; a year of self-discovery, getting out of my comfort zone, tryingContinue Reading “#LookBack2015”

Falling Down isn’t such a Bad Thing

I am from middle Tennessee. I’ve only seen single digit temps a handful of times in my life, all of which have happened in the past 2 years. I’ve only been outside in temps lower than 20 maybeeeee 15-20 minutes MAX. I have seen roughly a foot of snow one time in my life, whichContinue Reading “Falling Down isn’t such a Bad Thing”

Practice What You Preach

So today I told my principal that I was resigning in January. This decision was a long time coming, but necessary for me to move forward with my journey. The school I work at is more than just a job. In our county we are kind of pegged the “black sheep”. Because of this label, it’sContinue Reading “Practice What You Preach”
