Knoxville | First Ice Storm of 2013


We had ourselves a lil bit of an ice storm here in Knoxville today, so I stepped outside of my nice warm house (ever thankful that we haven’t lost power!) for a few minutes to take some photos. What’s your favorite way to spend an ice or snow day? I like to bundle up with… read more »

A Peek at the Holidays


Typically, we take many photos throughout the holiday season.  This year we certainly fell behind, but I do have a few to share, so I thought I’d post up a glance at what our holidays looked like. First, let’s start with the food coma that is Thanksgiving: This is probably only 2/3 of what was… read more »

Reads: The Willpower Instinct


  Well well well, here we are at the starting line to another year. 2013 is here, and once again I find myself surrounded by a flood of social media postings declaring goals and resolutions for the coming year.

Star Play


I’ve had these photos sitting on my hard drive for a while, but never got around to doing anything with them.  In August, we stayed up late with Kara & Remington to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower.  We set up our camera on a tripod to automatically snap a photo every 30 seconds, then sprawled… read more »

Matched by Ally Condie

I read quite a bit of young adult sci-fi. It’s so darn fun. The stories are simple and interesting, they’re a fast read, and they usually come in series – giving me plenty of nighttime reading material for weeks. I was giddy when I was asked to review Matched by Ally Condie – it is… read more »

Dove Visiblecare Body Wash and $500 gift certificate SWEEPSTAKES!


Alright gals, listen up. I’m pretty picky about the body wash that I use for my daily showers.  My skin is quite dry, and at times can feel itchy and uncomfortable.  I’m also prone to red or ashy-looking patches if I don’t keep myself thoroughly moisturized.  This even happens to me in the 1000% humidity… read more »
