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”

I had been putting off this post for a week now because there is just so much to say that I don’t know where to start! So…here it goes…  Everything happens for a reason, really, it does.

I work at the #1 Middle School in TN…SCORE!

So Monday night I (along with quite a chunk of our staff) attended the SCORE Prize ceremony downtown Nashville at the Schermerhorn. It was a HUGE honor to have our school nominated as 1 of the 3 top middle schools in TN, but when it came time to announce the winners they read off ourContinue Reading “I work at the #1 Middle School in TN…SCORE!”
