Exactly two weeks out from boarding a flight to Hawaii for 5 days in paradise with so many of our amazing friends and family. Oh yeah, and to throw a wedding! It’s insane that the date is almost here. Time flew by and I’m a little sad our engagement is almost over, but I’m so… Read More Two Weeks Until Aloha
Connect was my word for 2017. And 2017 was one heck of a year for connection. I chose “connect” for many reasons and one of them was because towards the end of 2016, I felt a little like an astronaut free in outer space, wandering through this new life I found myself in and not… Read More Connect: One Last 2017 Check-In
I left my desk in Memphis. Sometimes moving is just the absolute worst. My poor old desk wouldn’t fit in the Uhaul, so it was a goner. RIP hand-me-down-from-an-intern (Hi, Erica!) desk that I crackle painted. I hope it’s out there somewhere now being loved on by a new owner. I really did love you.… Read More Bye old desk, hello new desk
For the few and far between WatchUsRoamers, (hi, mom!) there has been a noticeable absence of anything and everything blog related recently.

It’s here. My last day as a Memphian. I’ve been writing this post days before I even knew I was officially leaving because I wanted my Memphis eulogy to be perfect. After a couple weeks of jotting down stuff, it finally struck me that it’s Memphis. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Even when the… Read More I’ve set my sights on where I’m going, and my goodbyes on where I’ve been… Memphis
I am moving soon (in 9 days to be exact), but I’ve been in Memphis long enough for it to be in my blood. I will never not feel like a Memphian. This place is like no other, it doesn’t matter if you weren’t born here, what state you’re from, or where you’re going.… Read More Mandy Does Memphis
A couple of weeks ago I panicked. I searched for tickets to the Moon River Music Festival and found that even a week before the event, it was sold out completely. I had my heart set on going, and I was mad at myself for procrastinating. I started madly searching discount ticket sites to no avail.… Read More The weather here is like a nice big warm hug: Moon River Music Festival and a tangent on my love of the river. And music. And music on the river
I’ve never had a summer that I didn’t want to hold onto until I could milk every last warm drop out of it. Sunsets, produce, nights out, road trips… they all just seem to be better in the summer. I’m not hating on the other seasons, I actually like having all 4, the impending change… Read More Summer isn’t over yet, quit talking about it like that. The peach cobbler can hear you.
