WHY GOOD THINGS AREN'T HAPPENING TO YOU

This year started off really great. My husband and I welcomed in 2014 from Nashville with my family.

On New Year’s Day, I officially launched this Continue Reading »

20 lessons from my twenties

October is hands-down my favorite month. Growing up in Nashville, I loved the crisp Autumn weather and colorful changing of the leaves. Driving down a stretch of road was like driving through a fiery sunset (sans the heat) with the trees bursting red, orange and yellow pigments.

One of the greatest perks about being an avid writer is going back months or years later to read what I’ve once written.
