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.”

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”

Growing Pains + First Stop

I am less than 3 hours from the first stop on my big adventure. I’ve been in anticipation of this trip for longer than it’s been planned, but the past few days I fell into a dark place and came this close to canceling the whole thing. Let me explain… As I mentioned in my lastContinue Reading “Growing Pains + First Stop”

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”

Halloween Camping

I got the privilege to join my boyfriend and his family/close friends for a camping trip that has been a tradition for years. I love Halloween (my fav holiday) and I am new to camping, so this was a win! Everyone was so awesome and we had a blast! Here are some highlights from the trip…Continue Reading “Halloween Camping”

Pilgrimage Music Fest

This past weekend I went to my first Tennessee music festival and it happened to be the inaugural event too! Originally I was only going to go on Saturday (because who doesn’t want to see Weezer for the 4th time?!), but when Steven Tyler got added to the Sunday lineup, I knew we had toContinue Reading “Pilgrimage Music Fest”

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”
