Silent

I haven't written in a year. That's the most incredible sentence I think I could read right now. A year? An entire year. And now we're in 2020. The pandemic, the societal reckoning with systemic racism, climate change still going strong, exhaustion. I still don't feel like writing. I got a random amount of views [...]

Growth

I've spent the past hour going through old posts on this blog and WOW. I've deleted so many of them because I would never want those words published to the Internet and someone think it was truth. I've kept a few too because it's really nice to see growth and be able to watch someone's [...]

day 62

We drove through Pigeon Forge and stopped in Chattanooga for a two-day music festival. It's been hot and humid and rainy, but today is was chilly and I wore a sweater. [...]

ode to my charley

A former teacher recommended the book when I told him about the road trip. Have I even talk about that here yet? I don't know. I'm also going on [...]

weight

In the weight of world and personal tragedy this week, I haven't found it appropriate to post anything on social media or on this blog. A recipe will not help you right now. A day in New York will not help you right now. And as far as the heavier stuff I'm best at writing... [...]

new things

Just wanted to let everyone know that every single one of my old blog posts can now be found on this website! Hooray for easy merging. Thanks, wordpress. The domain name may have needed change, but let's be real: I'll always be the girl that writes about Jesus and culture.   xoxoxo
