Nashville Trip – Part One

Bailey and Ellie at a Boutique shopping in Franklin

  Hi there! I’ve always wanted to go visit Nashville, Tennessee. I fell in love with downtown Franklin, Tennessee a few years ago while attending a business seminar.

Bailey holding her kid Ellie on her back at the beach

  You are creative. These three words changed my life eight years ago. A seed was planted. I was pregnant with Ellie, selling real estate, and seeking guidance on what I wanted to do with my life when I hired Christine Hassler, a life coach out of Los Angeles.

Bailey Heard in Blue Shirt on Stereotypical Thoughts

  I absolutely hate being stereotyped. No one wants to be labeled, categorized, or put into a box, and although we’ve all probably had stereotypical thoughts about someone we just met, it always baffles me whenever someone shares their oversimplified idea of me to my face. I never know how to handle it. My first… Read more »

  Last week was a really difficult week for my family. My aunt (my dad’s older sister), Betsy, passed away from complications with COPD. She’d been battling COPD for years and, after this last hospital stay, her lungs could no longer take the stress. I’m thankful I was able to be by her side during… Read more »
