The Country Professor Is Real.

The word unify has been following me around for a few weeks the way the word simplify did while I was in college. I’m still finding ways to make life simpler, and I have learned through that season that sometimes bringing things together is the best way to make things simpler.

That’s My Tiger.

I lived my first 18 years in Seneca, SC, and my last six in Anderson, SC. If you aren’t familiar with the area, these are the two cities on either side of Clemson, SC, home of the Tigers, who play in the National Football Championship tonight.

12-Month Twin Routine

What’s Important

You know those Facebook statuses that involve tagging people to get them to post their favorite book or quote or poem? I was nominated to post my favorite Bible verse yesterday, so I decided to be that girl who blogs instead. From kindergarten to 12th grade, I attended a private Christian school where we memorized a different verse every… Continue reading What’s Important
