I don't know when the thoughts started pouring into my head, but they haven't stopped. I don't mind. I have just learned not to go anywhere without Post-It notes and a pen to write down my thoughts.

I started posting some ideas on Instagram, but it has not felt like the correct forum for me, as I felt I could not wholly share my thoughts.
so, I decided to write my thoughts down in a newsletter. My thoughts and Post-Its need a more organized and permanent home. 

Who knows if my thoughts make sense to anyone besides me or if anyone wants to read them? Also, not everyone will agree with my thoughts. That is entirely okay. It really is. 

But please know my thoughts will always come from a place of good-trying to help to create spaces for safety, tenderness, and understanding individually and collectively. 

You can find the newsletter in the blog posts below. 

There will be personal travel blogs amid the newsletters. I need a home for them. I am pretty sure my dad is the only one who reads them. But if you want to see too many pictures of my travel, feel free to open those posts up!

To subscribe to the newsletter... 

Hi friend!

My heart and soul poured into my little internet home.

Another trip I did not journal was there or soon after. That is okay. This was not a long trip. I was initially going to Greece, but with Covid protocols, I could not risk getting stuck there because I had another trip to go soon after returning that I could not miss. Nashville was NOT Greece, but it is a place I have always wanted to visit. I had a lovely time there. I enjoyed all the history of country music and the civil rights movement. It is pretty wild in the District-where all the country music is. I was going to visit Becky and her family, but it did not work out. I was sad I could not spend time with them.
