An Ode to the Loire Valley

Pastels. Flowers. Castles. Easter is full of happiness, thanksgiving, love and sunshine. Every year, I spend this weekend with my family and we have Easter egg hunts, all the chocolate we can choke down, Grandma’s yummy dirt pudding and lots of laughter. I love Easter weekend and cherish the memories I’ve had with family duringContinue reading “An Ode to the Loire Valley”

My Christmas in Paris

If you’d asked me at any other point in my life, I would have told you that I’d never spend a Christmas away from my family. It’s the best time of the year and I cherish this time that I get with my family around the tree, cuddled up in blankets, hugging mugs of hotContinue reading “My Christmas in Paris”

Memories to last a lifetime

I feel it’s time to follow that last sappy post up. With another sappy post. But in the opposite way. So, here goes. I’ve been in Paris for seven weeks now.

Nobody said it’d be easy.

Well. I’m finally ready to admit it (although those close to me already hear this constantly). I miss home. Like reeeally bad. I knew it’d be a struggle to move an ocean away from everyone I love but I never imagined it’d be this hard. Don’t get me wrong, I love Paris and don’t wishContinue reading “Nobody said it’d be easy.”

An American Girl in Paris

Last I left you, I was moving to Africa. Well, that changed and as of today, I’ve moved my booty to Paris, France and will be spending the next year of my life as an au pair.

I don’t know where I’m going but I’m finding my way

Yes, I definitely titled this post with One Direction lyrics. What of it. Anyway, as you may know, I recently went on an Alternative Breaks trip for Spring Break. I decided to spend my last break in college doing something good and helping others. It was a wonderful and life changing experience that I will forever holdContinue reading “I don’t know where I’m going but I’m finding my way”

Someone want to hire me? ‘Cause I need one of those big kid jobs that everybody is always talking about. Here it is guys, my last semester of college. SAY WHAT. Terrifying and exhilarating all at once. So, naturally, I’m on the job hunt. And it’s actually quite exciting. AFTER I accepted the fact thatContinue reading “I need a big kid job, please.”

Star Wars Audition

Currently I am en route to Chicago to audition for Star Wars Episode VII. Man, I gotta say that I love this life I live. If I had one piece of advice to give to people, it would be to take advantage of every opportunity handed to you. And if there isn’t an opportunity, makeContinue reading “Star Wars Audition”

Growing up

So, here’s the deal. I graduate soon. Wow.. It’s terrifying to actually say it. Next semester I’ll be leaving home and making my own home somewhere completely different and that’s scary.. (Hopefully my Momma doesn’t read this post). Now that being said, I don’t know exactly what I want to do with my life. ButContinue reading “Growing up”
