About Me

Awkwardly Graceful would be our tag team name, if Jesus and I became professional wrestlers. I bring the awkward, He brings the grace. Whether I awkwardly fall on the sidewalk during a run, or let my temper get out of hand, I’m grateful He is always with me. He dusts me off and encourages me to keep going.

Hi! My name is Brooke.

I’ve been a writer from a young age. In middle school, I kept the classic diary with a lock on it – heaven forbid someone read my emo thoughts! Later I graduated to the traditional journal, like any ultra-sophisticated (or not) high schooler. I even have my journal from when my husband and I first started dating. I started blogging to chronicle my wedding planning, and to share our love story with the world. Over a decade later, the adventures keep coming, even if I take them for granted or don’t have the occasion to write about them.

Camp Fradd = Jay & Brooke

Together, we enjoy traveling and seeking adventures. While some of our quests have taken us across oceans, we also love the ones we experience in our back yard. We live just outside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Time spent on the hiking trails are some of the most relaxing hard work a girl can find!
I aim to share a bit of my life, both the adventures and the struggles. My desire is celebrate the victories in life, but first I have to slow down long enough to notice them. I hope you see glimmers of His grace in the words on these pages. Comments are always welcome, and I encourage you to reach out via email or social media as well.
