5 THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU CAN’T TRAVEL

5 THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU CAN’T TRAVEL

Y’all know I love to travel. I started You, Me, and Tennessee because of my passion for travel and it has been incredibly fun to share my adventures (big and small) with all of you. Here’s the thing… the “hitch in my giddy-up” if you will… I work a full time job as a nurse. I don’t have unlimited funds or unlimited vacation days.

One piece of advice I continually get is “to Hell with those people” but I don’t think that mindset is always healthy. Doing the hard work of introspection can lead to not only personal growth but stronger relationships. These are the 5 questions I ask myself when that happens because- full disclosure- it really hurts. I hope this helps other people who could be struggling with the same thing.  Continue reading “5 THINGS TO DO WHEN SOMEONE DOESN’T LIKE YOU”

FRIDAY 5: WEDDING EDITION

Hey y’all, I hope you like the featured photo for today’s post. The wedding photos are trickling in and I can’t wait to share them with friends, family, and of course the lovely readers of You, Me, and Tennessee.
