    Leaving an imprint…

    I’m joining the #30DayBloggingChallenge that Mandy Hale has set inspired by her new book #YouAreEnough! Day one begins with talking about tattoos and their meaning (and meaningfulness).  I have one tattoo. I swore I would never get one, mostly because I couldn’t figure out what I would want on my body for the rest of my life. But that was easy after my grandma passed away in 2009. My grandmother loved owls. I remember, growing up, we’d go to her house and they would be everywhere. As an adult, I wish I would have learned more about the reason why she loved them so much. She was my best friend.…

    I’m back! Blogging 2.0

    Wow, it’s been a long long time since I’ve used this space for anything. It’s not like I haven’t tried; you should see the draft pile of blogs. But I just couldn’t seem to get ideas out and flowing the way I wanted them too. Is blogging even a thing anymore? I don’t even read them anymore. I think Instagram has taken the place of keeping up with people’s lives. But I miss it. I miss clicking on the links to see what my favorite strangers were up to. I thought that when I moved to Nashville that I’d blog about the adventure of it all – and failed miserably…

    Well, hey there.

    I haven’t logged into this blog in sometime.  I love writing but when you write for a living, it’s really difficult to sit down and write more in your free time. But I figured it was about time to update anyone that may read this. And free time? That’s not something I’ve had a lot of. Thus, another reason I haven’t posted a blog in a while. And, I just haven’t been able to write about anything interesting. Not that I’ve not done anything interesting, because I have. Nashville is always interesting, but I just haven’t wanted to write about it. And now we’re back to excuse one. So –…

    Welcome to my world

    I feel like I’ve done this “introduction” thing a lot. Probably because this isn’t my first blog. But because this is a new blog, and Google Analytics has told me there are new people around (haha, busted), I will introduce myself. You may be new around here and not even know what I mean by “new blog” – there was an old blog? I’ll get there…but first. About me: I’m Heather. I’m in my early/mid-30s and I live in Nashville, Tennessee. No, I am not an aspiring country music star, although if you want to invite me to your girl band – I can play one hell of a radio.…

    Here we go again…

    Believe it or not, this is not my first blog post. Or first blog. I’ve actually been blogging for years. Several years, as a matter of fact. And I’ve learned a lot. But apparently, I didn’t learn about managed web hosting so when my previous blog, When You Are Making Plans, was up for renewal…I thought, “Nah…I don’t need them to manage this for me.” Yes, Heather. Yes, you do. So, one day I went out to blog about something and………….it was gone. Everything. I’m working on getting all the old files back – I’m doing some research now. It can’t be that hard to retrieve them. It’s literally only…
