Another Day as a Hokie

"From the outside looking in, you can never understand it. From the inside looking out, you can never explain it. Virginia Tech is more than a's my home and family. Our campus does not deserve this heartbreak."

I am so proud of my brother, a VT graduate who was on campus April 16th. I am so thankful for him and the Hokie Nation. While I look forward to my travels, I am savoring the last few days of the semester and look forward to my return in the fall.

A Brief Look Back Before a Large Jump Forward

This summer I had the amazing opportunity to spend two weeks in Turkey and Greece with my grandmother, the one and only Mumee. Before I start my next adventure I would like to look back on a few pictures from this wonderful trip.

 Poppies...opium anyone? Jk, jk.
