Valentines Weekend brought about two single girls, not a care in the world, and memories to tell for a lifetime.
I live in South Central Kentucky, which is actually one of the greatest places to live if you love to travel, simply because you’re not a far drive from anything. You’re 45 minutes from the city lights of Nashville, TN, 7-10 hours from the beaches of Florida, and 4 and a half hours from the Smokey Mountains in Gatlinburg, TN. For my 22nd birthday, I skipped my Thursday classes (priorities) and drove to Gatlinburg with my fiancé for a long weekend getaway.
Two words that hold so much meaning of who I am.
Who we all are.
Freshman year of college brought along many new friendships. One of those friends being Claire who was from Bellingham, WA – about an hour and a half north of Seattle. I was given the opportunity to travel with two other girls to visit her hometown in December of 2014, officially opening my eyes to the west coast of the country.
Everyone who comes into your life is there for a reason. They may be there your whole life, or maybe just for a short while. Either way, your life is altered because of their presence, in some shape or form.
Eight years old isn’t too young to become somebody! Big thanks to Highlights for Kids for choosing yours truly to be featured in their February 2004 issue.
If you want to have the time of your life, grab 15 of your closest friends, rent a two story cabin, and spend a week in Boone, NC. No other place will give you as much adventure and joy in one place than this trip will.
“You’ve missed your flight.”
“Life is passing rapidly. Fiercely commit to every moment you find beautiful and remember it. Record it. Fully, whole-heartedly inhabit it. Awareness is one of the greatest things you can posses in this life as it is important as the very air we breathe and water we drink to stay alive.”
