Hey there readers! I bet you thought you had seen the last of me. It seems that with a wedding, a start-up company, house hunting, job hunting, adopting a puppy, and working full time I’ve had a lot on my plate. But I’ve come back to let you know that I’ve come to bring new… Continue reading I’m Back – and I’m Bringing Big Changes
I never believed writing a book would be easy, honestly I wasn’t sure I would be able to fill enough pages to fill a novel but as I started typing the words flew out of me, which is again something I didn’t quite expect. I’ve always been a paper and pen kind of gal, scribbling… Continue reading I’ve Been Trying To Write A Book
I haven’t actually been to a music festival – I’ve been to day events with lots of bands – or Hopscotch which is in my home town and I get to sleep in my own bed at night, but I’ve never been to one where I will be out of my comfort zone and fighting… Continue reading A Weekend of Music – Preparing for Music Midtown

I had the pleasure of meeting Vollis my freshman year of college. I had been taking a journalism class, getting a feel for the industry, and with a class project to do some investigative journalism I decided to tackle the urban legend of “Acid Park.” Growing up in a small backwoods town in North Carolina,… Continue reading A Year Without Whirligigs: Remembering Vollis Simpson.
