This was the month y’all… I turned 21!! I’m a June baby, and I absolutely love having my birthday in the middle of summer. I got to spend some time with my friends and family and celebrated being one year older with my favorite people in the world! We hopped between some of the best wineries/breweries in Virginia where I’m from and had so much fun. I also got to adventure more in Nashville and discovered some of my favorite bars to hang out in and listen to music. So far this summer can’t get any better… Cheers to all the June babies out there!
Don’t get me wrong, I love Nashville so much. But I’ve been missing home like crazy lately… Seeing all the leaves changing and all the green around me is making me miss the Blue Ridge Mountains and how gorgeous it is this time of year back home. I haven’t seen my folks for a couple months, and I’m needing some family time. But I’m traveling home this month and I can’t wait to see everyone :) My nieces and nephews are getting so big, my cousins are getting married and having kids, my sisters about to be a senior; it seems like everyone’s lives just keep changing while I’ve been in Nashville. It’s a weird thing watching my family change from a distance, but I still love em and try to keep up with their crazy lives!
I played my first writers round in Nashville just recently! It is such a great feeling being on stage and singing my heart through my songs. I feel so blessed and fortunate to be able to live out my dreams here in Nashville, and do what I love every single day. I get to make music, meet other creative people, sing, and write all the time. If I had one piece of advice to give to anyone, it’d be to do what you love in life. Life’s way too short to be stuck doing something that doesn’t make you 100% happy. So live it up, chase your dreams, and get after it because you are soo worth it!
