This space is meant to serve as an online record of my adventures in Tennessee and abroad. I’ve been wanting to take the leap from scrapbooking to blogging for a while now. Yes, you read that correctly… up to this point I’ve been dazzling friends and loved ones with my scrapbooking talents against their will. Now they can come and go as they please and there is a lot less glitter glue. Everyone wins!

Here are a few things about me:

I’m a lover of Corgis, engineers, and donuts.

I believe Dolly Parton is truly the patron saint of the Smokies. I will always love her.

I feel like I’m living life to the fullest when I’m making memories with the people (and dog) I love most.

* Disclaimer* I make a conscious effort to find magic in everyday life. Sometimes that means celebrating what a passerby might consider mundane but I stand firm in my belief that, “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” If it’s good enough for Dumbledore, it’s good enough for me.

You, Me, and Tennessee is my daily eviction notice to depression and I must tell you, stranger or friend, it’s working.
