Chattanooga Adventures 🚃

  This weekend, we went to Chattanooga for my mom’s birthday. 🎉 Chattanooga or Chatt Town is one of those places that is so close, you forget about it if you’re a Knoxvillian like me. I’ve been there on field trips, passed through there on the way to other places, or stopped there just for […]

  Seeing is believing. Some places are just so weird and unbelievable that you have to see them in person. Helen, Georgia is one of those places. I decided that it needed an entry all of its own! 🇧🇪🍻🌲      If you were looking at these pictures and didn’t know any better, you would […]

It was in a house packed […]

Knoxville is the 3rd biggest city in Tennessee, but even so, it surprises me how many people from all different walks of life end up here.   I say it’s a […]

Suspenders+Jealousy 

 Sometimes, you just have to check yourself.  Sometimes, you realize you’re engaging in a certain behavior, having a bad violent or nonviolent (Hey, I don’t judge!) thought and you have to tell yourself, “SELF! We are better than this.” Or, if you’re me, you wallow in self-depreciating pity. Just for a liiiiittttle while.  As I […]
