Family is the most important part of who a person is. A family develops from within, helping to create a stronger individual while growing as a unit. My family is my base. They are my strength. And most importantly, they are the reason I'm still alive and well!
I was an active member of HCJMU for all 4 of my years at JMU. It gave me a voice for others and it made my voice stronger. Check out their feature on my blog and Alum status life!
Snapshots of all the action.
Movin' On Up
Little and I moved into our first big girl apartment together! Celebrating the big life steps, full time jobs, and loving each other!
Bang, bang! She shot me!
Tried skeet shooting on vacation and shot the first pigeon! Feeling pretty confident about my skills.
The siblings and I went to go see Tori at her seeing guide dog school. Aztec is the newest member of the family.
Home of Country Music
Corsair distillery is in Kentucky, but the owners wanted to be able to make whiskey in Tennessee. So, in 2008 they changed legislation and now there is a Brew-stillery in the heart of Nashville! And it's delish!
I exercised my right to vote and I'm very proud to be an American. Everyone should think twice before saying their vote doesn't matter.
New year, same me! Gave myself a beautiful treat of sugar and fat for breakfast and it tasted GREAT. Mental health is just as important as physical health.
My mom and I at Wanderlust 108, Washington DC finding our true north.
Went deep sea fishing for the first time and this is what I caught!
Baby, you're a firework!
Even though I worked on the 4th of July, I brought sparklers, candy, and bubbles to the office to make it fun for all.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Being a female in a male dominated corporate world means there aren't too many other females in the work place. I'm luck to have these ladies to celebrate hard work and strong results at the Bull Run Winery!
Live from the Grand Ole Opry
The house of country music fame and heart. The Grand Ole Opry is a place where all the greats have stood performing. ILY Nashville.
Just doing Kathleen things! Enjoying Winery at La Grange on a lovely Wednesday evening just because I can.
I said yes to helping my best friend saying I Do to her future hubby! Maid of Honor is truly an honor!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
My wonderful Matt planned a night out on the town (the river)! We went on a dinner cruise to ring in the new year and boy did we ring!
Time to Un-Wine-d.
Spent some time in Sonoma and Napa valley. Had the opportunity to taste delicious California wines from the Jacuzzi, Cline, and Rodeblo wineries.
Pause for a moment.
It's not always going to be as simple as smelling a flower, but you do have to stop and take a moment to appreciate innocent beauty every once in a while.
Vacation all I ever wanted..
Sometimes you just have to get away and what better group of people than with your family.
These colors don't run.
My boyfriend, brother, and I ran another half marathon! For me, it's my 8th. Pretty exciting to share the endorphins with people you love.
Matt and I took our first vacation together! We decided on Nashville for all the crazy things to do and the happy music that exudes through the town.
DC Beer Fest
DC, home of the free because of the brave. It's also the home of several beer and wine festivals and I am blessed to be able to attend them with my love.
Getting to be FRONT row at Carrie Underwood's performance in DC was INCREDIBLE. She's an amazing performer, artist, and human being overall. Couldn't have asked for more from her.
My youngest sister decided to donate her hair *on a whim* for the 2nd time. Most importantly, she let me do the honors of chopping it off!
Just Fall Things
Visited Cox Farms with my guy. Had a blast wandering through the "cornundrum" maze and munching on kettle corn!
Prince Edward Island (PEI Canada) sure knows how to make lobsta trouble!
