What's in a name?

Our Traveling Nest.

When Will and I got married (over 2 years ago) we knew we were going to be travelers. Not only in the vacation sense of the word, but where we would make a home. Our first 10 months of married life were spent in Will's hometown of Birmingham, AL. From there we moved to Tuscaloosa, AL where Will has been pursuing a Masters in English Literature from the University of Alabama. We LOVE Tuscaloosa and will enjoy another 3 months here until we make another move. Will was recently accepted to the PhD program in Literature at The University of Kansas. Our new nest will be our biggest adventure yet...Lawrence, Kansas!

Anyone who knows me well knows that I have a love of "nesting." Whether it's moving to a new home, unpacking boxes, getting settled, making a house a home OR just unpacking when you go on vacation-- I love it all!

Since the next few weeks, months and years are sure to come with change-- a new nest, hometown, friendships, church, etc. I want to document these times for ourselves and our friends and families.


  1. Wait! You are definitely moving to Kansas? That's so far! Excited for you guys though!

  2. Yes, we made the decision a couple of weeks ago! We are moving sometime this summer. We will make a special trip to visit the Smith family before we move though!
