Hey y’all! I’m Erin, a Tennessee girl, who, just recently has put in my notice as a kindergarten teacher, in pursuit of traveling the world and following my dreams. I have started Brunette on the Map as a way to share my adventures, beautiful pictures, and other inspiration from around the globe with you. My hope is that here you will be encouraged to:
Follow your heart and do what you love to do. I believe that you can accomplish anything if you’re willing to work for it. Whether it’s teaching, volunteering, writing, creating, sales…. I hope that you are inspired to do what makes you come alive.
Explore the beautiful world that God has created for us. Learn about other cultures. Experience their food, drinks, and festivities. Even if you are not physically able to GO, I hope to transport you there through my writing and suggest other books that can take you on magical journeys in your mind!
The world could use a lot more love. Every interaction in your day is a chance to show kindness, grace, and love to someone else. Give more hugs and tell people you love them.
We live in a fast-paced world. My mom used to (and still does) call me Poky Puppy after the children’s book, The Poky Little Puppy. Since I was a child, I was always the last one in line, the one you had to call out to catch up with the group. I would wander along and just get lost in my surroundings. I’m realizing that is not such a bad thing. Take a deep breath, slow down, and take it all in.
Do it all. Learn from your experiences. Do it all over again.
This blog is not only about me creating a life I love, but to hear about the ways that YOU are creating a life that you love. I want to hear about your life and your stories. Thank you for dropping by! I hope you’ll stay a while!
