There’s nothing I love more than sitting across the table from someone new or scattering around the living room with my friends to share a few stories. And that’s exactly what I want this blog to feel like for you—a place you can come on in, kick off your shoes, cozy up, and share in the story. I hope you find something here that makes you feel more confident and comfortable in your own story, something that helps us connect. While I can’t have you all over for dessert or meet you all for coffee, I can sit with you here in my little virtual living room and share a few of my stories with you in hopes that the things I’ve learned and lived in mine will help bring you a little peace as you learn and live your own.  

So for starters, let me introduce myself. I’m a Knoxville native who’s called Atlanta home for almost a decade now. When I’m not blogging, you can find me actually writing and editing for a living here. I love my friends like I love my family. I also love movies, cupcakes, my church, champagne, good books, chips and salsa, dancing, live theater or sports, a view of the water, and breakfast for dinner. My life’s dream is to one day own a beach house where I can invite everyone I love to stay for free whenever they want (see you there!). I love to travel almost as much as I love Jesus, and I’ve already crossed six of the seven continents off my list (I’m still coming for you Antarctica). My favorite role in life besides friend is pseudo-aunt to my friends' kids and actual aunt to my two nephews.

Thanks for stopping by to get to know me. I can’t wait to get to know you, too!
