Bigmouthben Stores - As an owner of this establishment, I have come to realize the dynamics, the mental exhaustion, the extremely hard work, and the "pride" that comes along with small business ownership, especially on the famous Auburn Avenue in downtown Atlanta - in the area better known as "Sweet Auburn" or the "Old Fourth...

Recently my husband, Benjamin, and I had the opportunity to go back to the place where it all started - The University of Georgia - the home of the Georgia Bulldogs. This visit came about in a way that neither of us would have expected. 11alive News aired an interview about my husband going from... Continue Reading →
People make photography fun. These photographs display some of the people that I encounter here and there from day to day. One of the things that I enjoy the most is the different personalities. We all have been gifted with a special something that makes us who we are. Each of these individuals has different... Continue Reading →
Cincinnati, Ohio - 2018 Standing at the corner of a neighborhood that has seen better days this church cannot be missed. From the red door to the cathedral windows with broken window panes, you will want to stop, and you will wonder why does this beautifully architected church sit in a condition that is copied...

It has been a while since I wrote about the “The Move”. I had several people ask when I would be posting again so I thought this would be a great time to jump back into some writing (although I have been doing some major writing just not on my personal blog).

Twenty-four years had passed since I walked off the campus of the University of Georgia. I had spent two and half years on this huge campus as a science major. The campus was beautiful and the massive old buildings that were spread over acres of land was more beautiful than I had ever seen before. For many reasons, this was a turning point in my life. One of the biggest was the introduction to a young man that after 26 years would be my husband. We both walked away in separate directions to live what we thought would be the best days of our young lives.
Fast forward to 2014- Sitting across from me in a downtown Atlanta restaurant and bar sits the young man that I left in college but this time something is different. Something went wrong. He is not the radio personality that I thought he would be. He…

Creative writing about real issues of life. She is pacing back and forth outside of the historical church doors. It is a cold brisk night with few people moving around. The weather has kept most people inside. The church is empty as the time for churchgoers has long passed. Now standing facing the church doors the... Continue Reading →
