I’m Annie. I was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. Jeremy, my amazing husband, and I got married in Washington in 2007. After our wedding, Jeremy’s career and my persuasion brought us back to South Carolina. In 2013, I graduated from the College of Charleston with a Bachelors in English with a concentration in Creative Writing.

I’ve always had a passion for literature—the characters you get to know, and the places you experience through words written on a page have always held magic for me. Reading about the wonder of foreign locales, tiny towns, and quirky people has inspired me to set off on my own adventures. Seeing the world through my own two eyes rather than through the words of others has been a blessing. It has impacted the way I live my day-to-day life and the way I dream for my future.

I hope my blog inspires you to see the world for yourself and that you enjoy the stories I’ve collected along the way.
