Almost Heaven...



"Country Roads" by John Denver is so special to me. It's my alma mater's theme song- played during every tailgate party, after each home football game, house party, last call... etc. You can be anywhere in the country and when this song comes on, there's typically a few Mountaineers raising their glasses and belting out the words. I've witnessed it. It's a beautiful thing. Hell, Hoda Kotb even whipped out her iPod during my commencement speech and played it through the podium microphone. "Teardrops in my eye"... you know it. Add in a slick Pretty Lights remix and I have been transported into a state of nirvana. October 4th can't come soon enough. I can't wait to experience the live show.

Take me home...

I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
