    How To Make Pickles!!!

    With these simple instructions, you will be making your own rendition in no time! Pickles are my favorite, & I finally got the courage to start making them myself!! I wish I started sooner!  Since I’ve been making pickles all summer long and I’ve had many people request what the recipe is & how I’m doing it. So let’s get into it. I make refrigerated pickles which I think is the easiest in my opinion. Before we get into it, this is focused on one jar.

    Virginia Creeper Trail

    Imagine whipping through the peacefulness of dense woodlands on an old railway route that since turned into a peaceful bike trail.

When you get woken up out of a dead slumber you first try…

    How I Moved Across The Country!

    Have you ever felt that you just belong somewhere without even have done it, seen it or lived it? I have had those feelings for most of my life growing up. Something about Tennessee and the south always touched me, like I belonged there. My parents have never taken me to Tennessee or the south but there was something about the area that I was drawn too. Moving across the country was the best thing I ever did!   Twenty Eleven I was fortunate enough to take a cross country trip In 2011 with my dear friend Jeanine. In that trip we drove from Loredo,TX to Long Island, NY. That…
