Born and raised in Texas, I skipped my way to Nashville in June of 2012, where I live with my spunky, ever-entertaining and shamelessly spoiled maltese, Maizie.
Born the first of four, an ESFJ, and prototypical type-A, I'm happiest when my day-planner is full. I'm an active Junior Leaguer, obsessed with barre classes and spending time on the greenway with my little pup, and really love my church. I feel most like myself when I'm nurturing the relationships with the people I love--usually through cooking and baking, or just good ol' snail mail.
What else you should know: I am perpetually late, bake my own dog treats and Facetime my dad almost every day. I wish on 11:24 (my birthday), live for college football (sic 'em, Bears!), and can never read enough Kennedy biographies. I lost my mom to M.S. in December 2012, and really feel drawn to spread awareness about this awful disease... I bring it up here from time to time.
I love: hosting dinner parties, pups, all kindsa music, book club, college football, sleeping in, fresh flowers, NPR, patio time, puns, hair appointment days, SNL, food documentaries, TheSkimm, going home to Texas, and a fresh manicure.
At 30, I'm definitely still learning--from my little stint in life, I can tell you to treasure good advice, never stop making plans, and learn how to say 'no.' Strive for grace, and thank the Lord for both your blessings and trials. Purge negativity when you can, and find something to be passionate about. Call your grandparents, have a signature something, and always remember where you came from.
Thanks for swinging by--I love having you here.
