We often travel during my spring break, as it is typically around Jason’s birthday. This year we decided to head to Austin, TX. I had been before, but it was YEARS ago, and Jason had been, but only to San Antonio. By the time our departure day arrived, we were SO READY! If you do […]

Texas | March 2021

I started my reading challenge in 2019. My goal was to read 12 books that year. Because I spend lots of time in the car, I wanted to listen to them as well. I have absolutely LOVED my Audible subscription! It definitely makes things easier when you drive a LOT! I set out to read […]

2020 Book List

I have known Katie’s mom Kim for a REALLY LONG TIME! Twenty three years in fact! She is one of my dearest friends! In those years, we have laughed, cried, traveled, helped move, danced, and laughed some more! Each time we meet up we immediately say “heyyyyyy” and start laughing! I’m pretty sure we both […]

Katie-Officially a Tate | Adoption Day

I love to read! I always have. Inside the pages of a book, you can learn anything and go anywhere at any time, all while rockin’ the no make up, messy bun and yoga pants look! I only made it to twelve books this year, but my goal is to double this in 2020. Here […]

2019 Book List

Throughout the year, I’ve received several emails on hair products, make-up remover, and even got questions on eyelashes! So, I thought I’d compile a list of a few of my absolute favorite things for 2019. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! And if you try any of these, I’d love to […]

My Favorite Things- 2019

Every fall, Jason & I like to head out on an adventure! We’d spent time in Oregon & Washington a few summers ago, and loved it! We decided to see what all Seattle, Victoria, and Vancouver, BC had to offer. We weren’t disappointed! After working all day on Friday, we arrived at the airport only […]

Seattle, Victoria + Vancouver

August 12th is always hard. Truthfully, the 1st two weeks of August are hard because I know what is coming. There are so many things that I replay in my head leading up to this day. What I did. The events of the day. What my room at school looked like. Even what the sky […]

A Painful Day

This week I headed over to Lipscomb University. I have such WONDERFUL memories when I attended there (that’s where Jason & I met, but we didn’t go on or 1st date until 12 years later!). They always had neat shops and locally owned eateries across the street, however, places have come and gone in the […]

Summer Series 2019 | Nashville: Week 7, July 13-July 19

This week started out with me on the hunt for chai tea. I wished I loved coffee, because I LOVE how it smells, however, I am sensitive to caffeine & coffee just makes my stomach hurt. I have absolutely fallen in love with chai tea, and tea in general. During my research, I found out […]

I started out at Stay Golden Restaurant & Roastery. They are located in the Design District at 2934 Sidco Dr. […]
