I snapped at Michael as I heated up soggy tortillas on minuscule plates. They were the only ones I could find and he asked me to fetch him the soap. "I have no earthly idea where it is." I said and slammed my hands on my hips, peering at him from the pile in our living room. "Can you apologize, Helene?" He asked, knowing full well this would set me off even more. I hate it when he says that. I … [Read more...] about Having A Fair-ly Good Time
We made it! We are officially Nashville residents as of 5:32 pm on Sunday August 9th. And currently, I'm eating ice cream out of a wine glass because we unloaded everything last night but the only things we have of importance that are easily accessible are ice cream and wine glasses.

While we do plan on attending the biggest fireworks celebration in the NATION (!!) our main goal is to find a place to live. Finding a place to live when you have basically no idea what you're doing is proving very time consuming and difficult. I sent some homes for rent and asked our … [Read more...] about We’re Going To Nashville
When I tell people that my biggest fear when moving to Nashville is making friends, they roll their eyes. They tell me, in a sweet tone, that I'll easily make friends, that I'm outgoing. But I honestly don't know that I am. I'm not scared to dance in front of a crowd, sure, but I'm not exactly convinced that equals outgoing. I'm an extrovert. I'm loud. I talk too much. I've overly … [Read more...] about Will You be My Friend?
