Chattanoogaaaaa, Come See for Yourself!

Today was a fun day! I probably haven't actually been to Chattanooga since I was 13, let alone get the chance to explore. I got a very small taste of some hiking adventures and now I am ready to go back, but the weather wasn't being very cooperative once we finally figured out what we wanted to do. Oh well...Next time!

Midwestern Night in Nashville

Last night CJ was in town and brought all his friends from home. We all went downtown to Broadway to show them around our city. #GlitterGlasses  made it onstage again, this time with our favorite fiddle player that we are always searching for when we go out! 

All in all, it was one heck of a night!

ALS Challenge

So apparently this ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been going on for a while. Fortunately, I have been "fasting" facebook/Instagram, so I have missed the hype...BUT my lovely little twins I babysit decided to challenge me anyway. Of course, #glitterglasses had to do it with me! :-)

I took the challenge! Who's next?

Life is short

As I'm driving to my best friend's father's funeral, I can't help but be faced with the fact that life is too short. Death always catches us off guard, even when you think you are expecting it. We all try to justify why it happens and how the person is always "better off" but when it hits you, really hits you, it still doesn't take the pain away. 

The only positive side effect of death is that it reminds us (in the most painful way possible) that we are, in fact, still living. Living with the memory of the ones that have gone before us, but still, nonetheless, living. All we can do is love the ones that are still here and cherish each moment we have.
