I am probably like many of you who are reading this; just a girl who is on her own, trying to balance being an adult, loving Jesus, and figuring out how to “do” this crazy phase of life. I have contemplated blogging for years, literally. This may turn out to be nothing more than me sharing my thoughts to the black hole of an audience known as cyberspace, while accepting the fact that the only person who actually ends up seeing them is my mother. Or, this could end up being something more….something that people can relate to, something that gives people encouragement, something that lets every other twenty-something who feels like,(if we’re being completely honest) they are stumbling through this transitional season of life know that they are not alone.
I grew up in Florida, and contrary to popular belief, it is NOT the best place to live. The beaches are beautiful, and Disney is truly the most magical place on Earth, but there is a flip side to the Florida coin. The mosquito’s are the size of your thumbnail, the four seasons are: hot, hotter, miserably roasting, and warm, and angry birds are a real thing better known as Sandhill Cranes.
When I left for college, I said goodbye to my little Florida hometown and never looked back. I spent four years at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA and to this day, 20 months out of college, I still crave the times when my biggest worry was passing Communication Theory and life consisted of Starbucks and laughing with my best friends daily.
After graduation I got a job in Rhode Island. Packing up a UHaul and trekking over 500 miles up the East Coast was one of the scariest things I have ever done. Thankfully, I have a God who knows my heart and taught me that following His plan only leads to rewards. After a mere five months in New England I got a promotion and headed back down South to Music City. Nashville, TN Y’ALL! I’m not saying that I am set on staying here forever, but at this point, I can’t see myself being anywhere else. This is a big city but a small town, where people understand that saying “Ma’am” and “Sir” doesn’t mean you think they are old, and the sunsets are forever unrivaled.
Deep down—> I have a huge heart for people. I like to think I could duplicate all the adorable DIY Projects I see on Pinterest but have the craft skills of a third-grader. I am a committed Bachelor/Bachelorette fan so feel free to live-text me throughout every episode. I only trust Fox News. And Chick-Fil-A is 100% a part of my diet. Regularly.
