Our Story


I’m a 29-year old writer and photographer.  I’m also a traveler, a cook, a baker, a reader, a creator, an artist and much more.  I started blogging two and a half years ago on my travel blog, A Southern Gypsy.  I set out a year ago for a long term trip around Asia, but soon realized long term travel wasn’t my thing.  I also realized there were many more things I wanted to write about besides travel.  So, now I’ve become a double full-time blogger.

Originally from Tennessee, I’m a southerner to the core.

I’m a girlfriend to my lovely, bearded boyfriend, Kaleb.  We own a moving company together and it is a year old this month!  It’s a battle everyday to be an entrepreneur but I couldn’t do anything else now.  We are the proud parents of a Norwegian Rednose Pitbull, Maximus Decimus Meridius or Max for short.


  • I collect many things including, but not limited to : hippos, cow art, maps and globes.
  • I’m obsessed with velociraptors, sushi, learning how to cook Thai food, organizing things in our tiny apartment, making lists, Pinterest & Instagram, making travel plans, thrift store shopping and more.
  • My camera is always with me.
  • Much to my family’s demise, I have loads of tattoos and no plans on stopping.
  • I can’t even stand the sight of mustard or pickles.
  • My new found food love is pineapple with dried chili sprinkled on top.
  • I’m a true nerd : Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, The Walking Dead, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars.
