Bartlett PD Citizens Police Academy Week 3

I can’t believe we’ve already completed 3 weeks of this course. It’s going by so fast and I’m loving every minute of it. Last night was definitely fun.

The celebrations on March 17 first began back in 1631, when the Church created a Feast Day in homage to St. Patrick. Having been the Patron Saint of Ireland, he died around the fifth century, which means that his passing came 12 centuries prior to the modern version of the holiday first being observed.

Who says we don’t know how to kick off “Spring Break”? 🤷‍♀️ I was down on Beale when it began snowing. I hadContinue reading “Snow, The Grizz and Wrastlin’ Belts, oh my!”


I’m dedicating this blog to my mama, who lives in Arkansas and had the horrible misfortune of being on the phone with me last night when someone starting shooting what sounded like an AR-15 somewhere near my house. At 9:30 at night. LOUDLY and over and over. I hung up, called the police, and calledContinue reading “Memphis”

Badass Women, Part 2

I got to thinking after I posted about International Women’s Day yesterday that I had more than 6 badass women in my life, and I just want to highlight a few more today. (Some names have been changed to protect the innocent, not so innocent, and well, me.) Brittney. She and I have only everContinue reading “Badass Women, Part 2”
