  • Hello. I love you. Won’t you tell me your name?

    Welcome to my little piece of the blogosphere.

    This is where I come to post my thoughts and the oh-so-exciting happenings of my small-town life. I think you'll find that I'm a spastic, mess of a girl. But I wear my heart on my sleeve and I've never been scared to talk to strangers.

    So, feel free to look around and stay awhile. And don't forget to leave a comment. I want to know who you are!

Wow. It has been a hot minute since I’ve written anything. (Wait. Hot minute?? Does anyone actually say that? It felt right. But now I’m questioning myself.)  Anywaaaays… It’s been a while. A long, long, looooonng while. (Do you see what I’m doing here? I think it’s called stalling.) I thought the writer’s block would … Continue reading

Look at that pretty baby!

A love like no other

In my last post (forever ago), I touched a little on all of the big changes in my life: new house, new puppy, new last name. And as life-changing as those things were, something even bigger and more impressive has happened since. I’ve got a whole new body. As in, a rapidly expanding body that’s … Continue reading


And now I’m a Mrs.

It’s been so long since I’ve written, I don’t know where to start. I’ve been saying for weeks – no, MONTHS – that I would pick up my laptop and just write something. Anything to get the words flowing again. But, as with anything, the longer you go without doing something, the easier it becomes … Continue reading

{insert excited girly squeal…}

Last Saturday, during a beautiful stroll through the woods with Jeb and Maggie, my best friend dropped to one knee, pulled a ring from his pocket and instantaneously became my fiance. The last five months of my life have been filled with so much joy. I’m overwhelmed with emotions, knowing that I get to spend … Continue reading

A new life for a new man

This time last year, my world was upside down. For those of you who don’t remember, or didn’t read my blog back then, we came unfathomably close to losing my dad. He was unresponsive for days, and I’ve never been so scared. It’s unreal to look back and see how much has changed since then. He … Continue reading

More than just an April shower

Death. Destruction. Devastation. Multiple tornadoes tore through the state on April 27, leaving people in shock and turmoil. Some people lost everything. Loved ones were taken, homes destroyed. Sturdy buildings were reduced to piles of rubble. Precious photos and family memories were scattered haphazardly by violent winds. But human nature is a funny thing. Despite … Continue reading


Life and flowers and stuff

I know I haven’t been around much lately, and I apologize. I plan on getting caught up on all of my favorite blogs soon. Maybe tonight. In the meantime, how about a quick post to let you know how life is going here? In a word, life here is fantastic. Not only do I have … Continue reading


A four-letter word

So there’s this word. It’s starts with an “L” and ends with an “E” – and I haven’t said it to anyone in a very long time. Until now. We both know it’s fast, but there’s really no denying the way we feel about each other. And when it feels like this, are there really … Continue reading


Just a coincidence?

Life is kind of funny sometimes, isn’t it? You go along, making decisions, choosing your own path, like you’re actually in control of things. Then, you step back, look at the big picture and realize that a force much greater than you has been at work the whole time. Because some things are just too … Continue reading


A quick update

Well, hello there. Remember me? Let’s face it… I’ve been kind of MIA lately. Sorry for that. Life’s been busy and time has been short. To say the least. Anyway, just wanted to squeeze in a short post to let you know that I am, indeed, still alive. And doing well, too. I’ve been back … Continue reading
