Hi! I’m Meredith! Thanks for stopping by to check out my little corner of the “blogosphere.” The About Me section is generally my favorite and first go-to of any blog, so I’ll try to live up to the pressure on mine. I’m a pretty average girl transplanted from the Deep South to the South West. I have a problem staying in one place for too long and I love, love, love to travel. If only that lottery ticket would finally pay out…
I originally started this blog as a way to share photos, poems, and other random thoughts with the world. I guess you could say as personal therapy. But recently I’ve decided to give it a shot on a deeper level – so here goes! Please bear with me while I have fun figuring out all the ins and outs of the blogging world. I’ll try to do my best!
I share an apartment with two beautiful cats and a turtle. They are my “children” for all intents and purposes and I love them all (even if the furballs do take up most of the bed every night!). I discovered a love for photography somewhere along the way and have been trying to improve my skills as I go along. I feel like pictures are the best souvenirs anyone can ask for – they’re memories that you can actually show others! How awesome is that?! I also love to read – pretty much anything that can hold my attention. I prefer a good book to the movie (almost) any day.
Growing up I always wanted to be an attorney. So when the time came, I went to Law School at the University of Miami. I knew by the end of the first year that I wouldn’t be a practicing attorney, but I tried. I’ve tried everything from immigration to family to environmental law. I finally gave myself permission to use my degree in a non-traditional way and I couldn’t be happier! Now I work in the environmental consulting industry, and I love it. The law degree still comes in handy (I can write a mean contract), but I’m doing what I love in a totally different way than I would’ve ever imagined. Life is funny like that, you just never really know where you’ll end up.
So this is my story – from the mundane every day to the big world travels. Life is an adventure no matter where you are, it’s all in the attitude. Welcome to my adventure!
I am a traveler, a photographer, a reader, a stranger, and a friend. I’m a wannabe poet looking for inspiration in the adventures of every day life. My quest for freedom leads me to the strangest places, and leaves the best stories in my heart.
