7 Things I’ve Learned from 7 Years of Blogging

  Yesterday was my blog’s seventh birthday. I had big plans to celebrate seven years of blogging. I was going to re-post old blogs, one from each year. I was going to do “seven days of giveaways” to celebrate. I was going to write something important and good, but you see, I don’t really have it all together right now. Life, I mean. I’m sort of in a barely-craping-by season that requires me to say no to simple things like having coffee with a friend. It’s the season I am in right now…

If I Were a Spiritual Guide on The Bachelorette (Episode 3)

I’ve been a pretty faithful viewer of ABC’s The Bachelor and The Bachelorette since 2009, Jillian’s season. Some of you who have been reading this blog for a while might even remember The Bachelor Audition of 2011. Something I more often than not wish I could forget. I watch The Bachelor because I live in America, and it is my right to zone out for two hours a week and watch trashy (ok, not always trashy, I’m a big Sean and Catherine fan) TV and drink wine with my friends. On episode three last night, we…

10 Things I've Learned, 10 Years After High School

This weekend, I attended my ten-year high school reunion. I didn’t think we would ever make it to our ten-year reunion. In high school, it seemed a million years away. But it turns out, ten years flies by like ten minutes in the real world. As we sat around in a circle reminiscing about crazy stories and remembering people we had forgotten about, I realized I’ve learned a lot things in the last ten years. About myself, about life, about God. So I decided to sit down and list the top ten lessons I’ve learned…

A Poem for the Twenty Something

On Friday night, I packed into the sanctuary of my church in Nashville with about 700 other women to listen to author/blogger Ann Voskamp speak. Well, that was what I thought she would be doing. Before she came on stage my friend sitting in front of me turned around and said this was going to be a spiritual spa experience. What? I thought. And, sign me up! I like the spa. A couple of seconds into Ann’s talk, I got what my friend had said. Ann did not preach, she did not give a lesson. She did…

That Time I Audtioned to be on The Bachelor

It’s true, friends. Last Saturday on a hot and humid Tennessee afternoon, my friend Kelsey—a fiery, sassy, beautiful red-head in a black dress and pumps–and I—a girl with a humidity-induced fro, shorts, flat sandals and, let’s be honest, sweaty armpits—ventured to Hotel Indigo a few minutes from my house in Nashville, where auditions for next season’s The Bachelor were underway. Judge as you will. I deserve it. Kelsey and I had promised each other a couple of seasons ago that if Bachelor auditions ever came to Nashville we would go…
