I'm a 20 something living with my sweet golden pup (@agoldenraeofsunshine) in 
Nashville, Tennessee. I've always had a creative flare and a passion for mind + body wellness. What better way to mesh the two together than using this space? I am here to share all things health, happiness and heart to inspire others to live their life fully. 

This little blog of mine was born during quarantine. Due to Covid-19, I found more time on my hands when I was furloughed from my full-time corporate job for a bit. The extra time made me realize how badly I needed a creative outlet to share things that bring me joy; trying new recipes in the kitchen, traveling to new places, expanding my fashion closet, getting a good sweat in, and spending time with Jesus. 

My hopes with this blog is to encourage others to take time for themselves and do whatever brings them pure joy. I’m simply here to share all things that are positively impacting my continuous journey to a healthy, happy and heart-filled life.


1. My boyfriend, Josh and I have been together for almost 6 years! He is stationed in the military in California, so mostly always you can find me on a plane visiting him. (HELLO Southwest Rapid Rewards)

2. My favorite place in the whole wide world is Charleston, SC. My mom was born there and we grew up going there every year for vacation. It just feels like a home away from home. Plus I'm a major beach gal.

3. Dancing or spinning are my ultimate fav workouts. I grew up dancing from the age of 3 all the way through college. Catch me out on a dance floor near you.

4. I’m obsessed with my golden retriever puppy, Raelynn. She is just under a year old now, and she is my little “Rae” of sunshine. I’m sure you will be seeing a lot of her on this blog.

5. If I was stranded on a island and could only choose three foods to live off of, I would choose: avocado, dark chocolate, and Rosè. (I even wrote a song about Rosè; did I mention I sing too? LOL)

Let’s be friends!!
