(that’s not a first place trophy) When I was younger, I was all about putting on performances. I loved the spotlight. I’d sing, I’d dance (badly), I’d dress up and do impressions, I’d put on magic shows, basically anything to entertain people. But for some reason, when it came to doing it for anything other than fun, I’d choke. I didn’t do talent shows or anything … Continue reading Diary of a Loser Beauty Queen
I was trying to be blogger appropriate and select a handful of dresses that were my favorite in the last post, but I have lots of favorites! I never really follow the rules at anything so I’m posting more. I’m very rebellious, I know. I like, eat my dessert before dinner and stay up past 11 sometimes too. Watch out. That’s all!

(dress) I love love. I really do. I’m scared to death of it and I’ve run from it a few times and it makes me crazy and confused, but I love it and won’t ever give up on it. It’s what our hearts were made to do. So why not celebrate it? Most people fancy it up a bit for Valentine’s Day and that’s always fun. I’m usually in jeans … Continue reading Valentine’s Day Dresses

He left us a letter that tells us how to find peace of mind … Continue reading A Love Letter

True or not, … Continue reading How to Make Your Home Grown-up and Cozy
(for love & lemons swimsuit) I love living in Nashville and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, but man do I miss the beach. I totally took it for granted when it was right around the corner from me. Now I’m here.. surrounded by land.. pale.. not yet confident enough to crash a fancy apartment pool. So I guess I’m going to have to plan a … Continue reading Adult Spring Break

Three seconds. That’s how long we had from the moment we drifted off the road until the truck hit the pilar at 85mph. In three seconds Hunter had to handle a situation that would either kill us immediately or save our lives. He keeps beating himself up for my pain but he saved my life.

And from experience, I can tell you that you should never lower your standards or self-respect for anyone. Let … Continue reading Carrie Bradshaw, Edited
I can still remember the first time I read Tuesdays with Morrie. It took all of one day. It was 4 a.m. when I finished the last page. I closed the book, said my prayers, and cried myself to sleep. *** Working in a library, I’m often asked for book recommendations. Usually, I’ll try to get a sense of what the person likes before I make a suggestion but I … Continue reading Tuesdays with Morrie: A Universal Story About Life
