Nashy

Nashville, you’ve managed to easily capture my heart again. Each time I visit, my appreciation for this unique, history driven city grows. Me and my girlfriends managed to make the most out of our 2 shorts days in town. Take a look at the pretty parts along the way.

A Rare Bird

She’s a Lexington native with a bubbly personally and the most photogenic smile you’ll ever catch. She’s a photogenic Sinatra fan, with an appetite for hummus and buffalo chicken dip. She is an old soul filled with silly sayings and words wise beyond her years. She is my best friend Andie Wallingford and she has…

A Little Messed Up

Ten people crammed into a car, and it was silent. What began as a silly Christmas Eve mishap, soon turned into a disastrous fiasco of slamming car doors and yelling matches containing an unnecessary amount of curse words. I sat in the trunk of my parent’s car, squished against my two cousins and younger brother,…

Jackson, TN

“Clear your calendars in a few weeks. I’m planning something special.” Confused and intrigued, I followed my dad’s orders. It isn’t out of character for him to make plans spur of the moment. Happy to say, my dad’s quick thinking and rushed planning turned out to be successful. Those plans became the highlight of my…

Thanksgiving Wrap Up

As we wrap up Thanksgiving I’m looking back on snippets of the past few fall months with a happy heart. Cherry pies, pumpkin carving, crunchy leaves, and sweater weather made it an enjoyable season as usual. Thanksgiving right before Christmas was a genius idea (not actually sure if it was an idea or what). Christmas…

Yay for National Vegan Day!

To all my fellow vegans out there, happy National Vegan Day! What a special day, dedicated to all those who make health conscious choices daily to better themselves and this Earth. To celebrate I think I’m going to treat myself to a rarity…divulging some tasty vegan chocolate! Veganism isn’t something I talk about much on…

My Soul Mates

When you hear someone talking about their soul mate I’m assuming you have one of two reactions. Either your heart warms and you naturally smile out of the happiness for this person or you roll your eyes and begin to judge them for believing in such a silly concept. It sounds awful, I’ll admit it,…

Laurel Lake

A couple days before leaving, we weren’t quite sure what to do. The gang checked the forecast over and over again, hoping to see the slightest break in predicted rain. No luck. After much discussion we decided to stick to the plans we’d created over the past month and to gamble with the rain. The…

When You Least Expect It

It happens when you least expect it. Boy is that a relevant phrase in my life. Just when I became content with the single life, he crashed into my newfound world filling me with curiosity, uncertainty, and butterflies… lots of butterflies. But my intentions here are not to brag about this man and the time…

Denver and Megs

I’ll keep this one short since the pictures speak louder than my words. Perhaps the wildest thing I’ve done thus far has been hoping on a plane with my best friend, leaving the two of us in an incredible yet unfamiliar place. Denver Colorado. Our adventures lead us to one too many restaurants, plenty of…

Pikes Peak

26 miles, 14,000ft, 3 days. Yup. We did that. This backpacking trip in Colorado Springs turned out to be more memorable and eye opening than I could have imagined. The first night Meg and I were doubtful about reaching the summit. It gloomed over us, making me feel smaller and more insignificant than ever. Thankfully…
