Memoirs Move Me

Oh my gosh! “Do I have a story for you!” Those are seven words I will never tire of hearing. I crave a good story like a basic college girl craves a pumpkin spice latte and an Instagram photo op. Call me, message me, write me a letter, or invite me to lunch. If you have got a good story to tell, I have got a listening ear. Yes, I still answer calls and still call people. If you are even my casual friend, you know I am not afraid to call you on the phone.

What’s in a Name?

College athletics has essentially been unchanged since the beginning of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in 1906. … A scholarship was awarded to an athlete to cover their education.

Good Evening TXK

Just last month, I was honored to sing a song I wrote for my close friends, Abby and Joe, on their wedding day. It was a simple, beautiful day in New Boston, Texas, at Four Fifteen Estates, one of the most gorgeous, awe-inspiring wedding venues I have ever seen! While I enjoyed myself that day, and I will never forget the moment I looked down, singing above my dear friends, strumming my guitar during their first dance, something just felt off for me.

Stay Awake!

Happy October, my bookish ghouls and goblins! For this month's book review, I picked a thriller from a popular author who is new to me. It is just the book to usher us into the spooky season. What is not to love about a thriller? The pages practically turn themselves, and a clever author can keep you guessing until the end. There is nothing quite like the gasp at the end of the book when it unexpectedly comes together. We need to think of a word for that. "Ending gasp" seems too long. Help a sister out!

I remember exactly where I was the day I got a text from my friend, Sarah Cooper, that Heritage Home Health & Hospice had created a new job position, the first of its kind. She thought I would be perfect for the job. You rock, Sarah! She told me I should apply for the job as soon as possible, but I was nervous. Up until this point, I had only worked retail jobs. What the heck did I know about home health or hospice? It was 2020, and I felt pretty lost at the time, just wandering aimlessly through life. I was trying to find some solid footing.
