Welcome to Live Intentionally! 


I'm a twenty-something southerner pursuing simplicity and a Christ centered life. I was born and raised in Tennessee, and love calling Nashville my home. I adore: farmers markets, stalking Chip & Joanna Gaines, traveling to new places, natural beauty, Gilmore Girls, and all things Disney! I have a tendancy to purchase travel books and look up flights to places I have no immediate plans to visit. When I'm in the car I'm singing along with my Disney playlist 99% of the time...I'm a child, and I'm okay with that! Aside from making Youtube videos and blogging, I get to spend my days teaching some sweet 4th graders. God has truly blessed me with a career that I love, as well as great friends and family to spend life with. #teacherlife

Live Intentionally began in May 2015 as a Youtube channel, and has since grown into a little community of people who strive to live simple lives with purpose, intention, and a Christ centered focus. I began the decluttering process in April of 2015, and have since applied the concept of simplicity to all areas of my life. I never knew the clarity, peace, and joy that would come from clearing the clutter (mental and physical) to focus on what's truly important in life. Living a simpler life has taught me to toss aside the things that burden and distract us from pursuing the most important things in life- which we all know are not things. 

This is a place to share some insight on what God has been teaching me; as well as encouragement, inspiration, and my favorite things! Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet! I hope you'll stick around!
