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”

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”

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”
