California Dreamin’

I wanna be in the suburban California streets White sands of the beach submerging my feet A splash of salt from the sea caught in an ever so gentle breeze Said I wanna be in Cali where it's always 75 degrees Beneath towering palm trees that always seem to be waving as if to say… Continue reading California Dreamin’

Poem: Please, Stop Loving Me

I don’t deserve your heart so please stop giving it to me Wrapped up so neat with a stunning red bow on top I’m an addict a thief I’m a murderer who watches the world bleed without a wonder I’m a black sheep In a portrait-perfect family I’m the air over a funeral I’m the… Continue reading Poem: Please, Stop Loving Me

Poem: Lullabies at Grandma’s

For me there is nothing quite like night When the black sky is open wide and the glowing moon lends just the right amount of light I stare up An out of this world sight Memories oh memories They flood my mind As a kid back at Grandma's in her lap I'd sit as she… Continue reading Poem: Lullabies at Grandma’s

Poem: The Heartbeat of Years

The clock ticks away years like the beat of my heart You’re still in my tears I wear your name like a scar Wishing you were here as I look upon a million stars I awake into a nightmare everyday I’m not in your arms We’re all home now but you are nowhere to be… Continue reading Poem: The Heartbeat of Years

I think I just moved back to TN

It’s amazing how quickly your whole life can change, isn’t it? One minute you have a perfect idea of how everything is going to play out... the next, something as gentle as a breeze comes along and changes the direction of everything. So, the family reunion that brought me to Knoxville went well. Really well.… Continue reading I think I just moved back to TN

Poem: Tears of an Angel

When I was young My grandma would say the rain from above came from the eyes of Angels as they cried To me it didn't mean much at the time But now that my Nanny has become an angel herself when it rains I dwell I pray these tears aren't flooding from her loving eyes… Continue reading Poem: Tears of an Angel

It’s definitely been one of the most adventurous trips I’ve been on—driving from Laguna to San Francisco to Eureka, then hiking all over northern Cali and staying in a camper... it has been a very loving, happy,… Continue reading Saying Goodbye and Signing Off

Happy Fourth of July! :)

I don't really have much to say, so here's some pictures of my July 4th in northern Cali 🙂 Plus, it's midnight and I have to get up in 5 hours to drive back to Laguna. Then here's some from our hike the other day. Did I post these already? I don't know. Hope you… Continue reading Happy Fourth of July! 🙂

Laguna Beach to San Francisco! 🚗 🎒

Since I started blogging a year ago, I’ve also wanted to start a travel blog. Sadly, I’m 24, have a full-time job, and am also borderline broke. So... I don’t think a travel blog is coming anytime soon. However!!!! I do still get to take occasional vacations, and for this summer's trip, I’ve headed west… Continue reading Laguna Beach to San Francisco! 🚗 🎒

Someone Take Me Home

Home is where the heart is. My home--my family--is my everything. Really, it's funny I say that, because anytime I decide to move, I purposely make the decision to stay living halfway across the US from where my family is. Honestly, I just think there's more I need to learn on my own, and that's… Continue reading Someone Take Me Home
