A friendcation for the ages: Birmingham, AL & Nashville, TN

There comes a point in our lives right after college where you no longer live near any of your best friends, unless you’re lucky. I’ve hit that point. Every single one of my best friends live in a different city than I do. Some just a few hours away and others are 10+ hours away, depending on if you want to fly, drive, bike, or walk. It’s rough.

A letter to my younger self

Dear 14-year-old Casie, Hey, it’s you, but just 10 years in the future – crazy, right? It’s weird to say this, but I barely remember what you’re going through right now and what exactly you’re experiencing… I guess that speaks to my memory skills…(yeah, they’re still not great…) If I’m thinking correctly, you’re living it […]

Lessons I learned from my dogs

I’m obsessed with dogs. Everything about them makes me laugh, smile, or feel all cozy inside. If you’ve encountered a dog and had an unpleasant experience, don’t give up on dogs, give up on their owners (because dogs are only a product of their environment, don’t @ me). Listen, I was bit by my dog […]
