My Happy Place

Part 1

There are a few places on this Earth that I consider my "happy place". 
They are places that make me feel alive, that soothe my soul, bring a smile to my face and when I'm there, I'm happy. Well, I'm happy most of the time but you get what I'm sayin'.

For those of you who know me or have paid attention to my domain name this will come as no surprise to you. 
My first happy place is....

I don't know what it is about this place but when I'm here, I'm home.

When most of y'all think about Tennessee I know your first thought is this..

and this...

Yes, that's all there but what state doesn't have rednecks? 

What I love about Tennessee is the moment I touch down, I can feel my heart do a sign of relief. It's like ::::ahh, I'm home:::: 

The land, the greenery, the people, the music, the food. 
Oh the food! I think I just gained five pounds thinking about the food.
And the fruit tea!

The wide open spaces
The music
I love me some good country music.

Tennessee is my happy place. It is so different from where I'm from and I think that's why it's so attractive to me. There are wide open spaces, rolling green hills, friendly people who wave to you on their tractor as you drive by, hey y'alls and how you doin? It's just a completely different life from the Orange County, California bubble that I live in. I love it and crave it. I also have awesome family members who live there that I love and miss so much.

I also love that my husband loves this place and has dreams of calling it home one day. We'll see what God has in store for our little family.

 It's a big and beautiful world out there and Tennessee is at the top of our list. 

Where are all my Tennesseans at?
I love y'all...

::more of my happy places comin' soon::


I am with ya on that! Amen sista! I miss the snow, or the changing color of leaves, milking a cow & drinking real fresh milk, home made everything, and family that knows me better then anything else!
Enjoy your next trip!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
