Life Happens Life Stuff

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”

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”

Oh Canada

You know the feeling of wanting to do something and do it right? That feeling when you decide to put your time and energy into learning something new, but you feel like you’re getting no where? Or what about when you hit that imaginary “wall” where you start to think, “Maybe I was crazy forContinue Reading “Oh Canada”

My Journey to Firefly

I love music fests. I just do. I love the music, the vibes, the people, the crazy, EVERYTHING! When Firefly released their lineup, I decided that I absolutely HAD to go. The question was, how? I have only ever actually ‘camped’ 1 time in my life. It’s not that I am prissy, I just have neverContinue Reading “My Journey to Firefly”

Wanderlust: Finding my True North

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 say that all the time, but probably only believed it about 90% of the time, until lastContinue Reading “Wanderlust: Finding my True North”
