Little Tybee Island: Your Own Private Beach

May is our time of year for secluded beach adventures, it seems. Last year we took a bikepacking trip to False Cape State Park, which still remains one of my favorite beach trips ever. Living in Tennessee, beach trips are fewer and further between, but we are finding ways to fit them in regardless. WeContinue reading “Little Tybee Island: Your Own Private Beach”

Resolutions on Storytelling

My favorite professor in college was a man of stories. He was the head of the Philosophy and Religious Studies department, and had a background of military service, psychotropic drugs, and a time he hitchhiked from Canada to, wait for it, Hawaii.

Unfortunately, storms passed near the areaContinue reading “Campground Review: Bear Creek Lake State Park”

Hike It Baby, Tinkergarten, and learning to be a WAHM

Am I a WAHM? A SAHM? Employed part-time outside the home? In a way, I think it’s all of the above. When I resigned from full time employment back in August, I had a lot of complicated emotions associated with it. I’ve always worked. Always. I counted down the days until my 15th birthday whenContinue reading “Hike It Baby, Tinkergarten, and learning to be a WAHM”
