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. You read that right… I. Am. Training. To. RUN. A. Half. Marathon. Sure, some of you will readContinue Reading “#GGJourneytotheCastle”

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!”

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”

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”

Thoughts on the River

So this past Sunday I got to try kayaking for the first time on the Harpeth River in Franklin, Tennessee. I figured I would love it (which I did), but as we floated and I was able to take in the scenery and slowly let go of the every day stresses of life, I foundContinue Reading “Thoughts on the River”

Love is a Beautiful Thing

I had the privilege of being one of the few humans to attend my sister’s wedding (and was the official witness!). It felt very last minute, but I also didn’t know about it until yesterday when she called me at work to ask if I would like to attend. Watching my sister’s relationship with Gabbi evolve hasContinue Reading “Love is a Beautiful Thing”
