A sad day it is to say goodbye to what has been one the most amazing experiences in my life. Made by Few started, for me, with my very best friends. Over the last four years, we have built something incredible together. But, sadly, I am parting ways.
There are far more important loves in my life right now and sometimes you have to choose.
I choose my husband. I choose time to mend my heart. I choose friends who support me in making healthy decisions for myself and my family. I choose my garden. I choose being the best person I can be despite what others think, say or believe.
I have loved meeting and doing things with every single person I have had the chance to work with over the years on this project. I have learned so much from each of you. Cheers to an incredible line up and an incredible conference this year and years to come. <3
I cannot believe I am twenty-nine years old. Where did time go? I really couldn't have asked for a better birthday. Jordan and I made it to Memphis in May for the first time in years and nearly all of my favorite bands were playing. Not to mention, I was front row for ALL of them.
Jenny Lewis, Ryan Adams, Flogging Molly, Band of Horses, The Avett Brothers - see photos below!
The best gift, however, came from my little sister, Jessi. Cards from Jessi are a favorite of mine - especially when they have drawings of my pups!
While in Little Rock this weekend, I had a chance to go on a great hike at Petit Jean State Park with my friend Arlton. Total 3.4 miles, 3 waterfalls, and lots of trees and foliage trying to come back to life on this second day of Spring in Arkansas. Great fun!
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms." - Henry David Thoreau
