A powerful tremble soared through my body as I stood encased in the marvelous creation. I felt a connection to everything around me, almost as if the spirits of the jagged canyons were speaking directly to me.

The Magnolia is a Smoky Mountain wedding venue in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee with breathtaking mountaintop views for the ultimate destination experience.

In 2014, I set out to live a life crafted with intention and depth. I bought my first VW and started taking solo road trips to discover pieces of myself that I knew were buried in adventure.

One of my dearest friends, Rachel Clift, wrote this poem during the reception at a wedding she recently attending after hearing “til death” knowing twin flame souls are beyond this lifetime.

Inspired by the emotional depth of poetry, I decided to give my creative skills an attempt at writing my own. Dated July 2019, I mediated on self-awareness and wrote my first poem.
