  • In today’s society getting away from all technology is a hard thing to do, even when you travel the technology, like cell phones, is still a temptation for most teenagers. In the summer of 2010 my family and I traveled north to Fariystone National Park in Virginia where there was no cable,...

  • An Adventure and beautiful scenery– that was the promise my dad and younger brother made to me as we made our way to the trailhead for the MacRae Peak hike on Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina.  It was late in the afternoon before we got to the park on our last vacation day in the Smoky...

  •   We haven’t seen him for two whole years. My cousin locked up in jail for attempted murder. We signed all papers and we were on our way to Delano, California.

  • City girls are usually known to be major girly-girls. They often like to shop, paint their nails, put on makeup, and go out with their girl friends. That is definitely what I consider myself to be, a major girly-girl. Imagine putting an all around girly-girl, like myself, in a small, country town,...
