A Little About Me

I realize since starting this blog I have yet to really introduce myself to those that don't know me! So I decided that I would take a minute and share a little of my story :-)

I came from Greenbrier, TN and loved every minute of being raised in a small town! One red light, a Sonic, and a few local owned gas stations and restaurants are what I grew up around. I loved every aspect of small town life. Friday nights were spent at either high school football games, basketball games or just hanging out in the parking lot of the high school. The friends I made and still have today are some of the greatest that I've ever had, and the memories we have shared and made together will always be held close to my heart.

After I graduated high school in 2006, I moved to Knoxville to attend The Univeristy of Tennesse. After a year of attending college, I decided it was not my cup of tea. I already had an apartment lined up for the summer, so I stayed in Knoxville and had a blast with my friends. I worked some odd jobs and had a blast just hanging out with my girls all day everyday.

I began a "big girl job" at a property management company and loved working there. However, I was quickly getting burnt out, and decided it was time for a change. I now work for my boyfriend's amazing parents at their Real Estate office and LOVE it!

I'm hoping to start Cosmetology School in the fall, and I'm super excited about that. Josh has been so very supportive of the whole idea. With his help, encouragement, support, and love, hopefully we'll have a new salon open within the next 2 to 3 years! I'm excited to see where God takes me on this journey!

So, there you have it, me in a small nutshell....but don't think I'll stop there. I'll be posting more of the "details" of my life for all of you that are curious!
