I'm Tara.

I'm just a silly little girl who likes to go places and tell her silly little stories.

SLK documents the adventures I've had across 5 continents & who I've become on my journeys.

Southern surprise

Southern surprise

When my parents moved from South Dakota to South Carolina, I wasn't shocked. We've been moving our whole lives. It's kind of what our existence consisted of growing up. But...I wasn't really excited either. 

I had to put my things in storage as I was beginning another 6-month international adventure {what's new?!} and I realized if I didn't get my visa for New Zealand, I'd be returning to a house I'd never lived in, in a state I had no interest visiting. What could South Carolina have to offer other than men in pastel polos tucked into ironed khakis?! 

A lot, it turns out. 

After touring around last winter with my friend, setting aside the fact I was not ready to be hosting anyone and I had no idea what the South had to offer, I realized that there is beauty here. I just had to keep an open mind and I fell in love with the things I never saw coming from the South. It's been full of surprises for me. And I like being kept on my toes {just look at how I live}. 

I just needed to unpack the same open-mindedness I carry with me on my international travels down here, so I could see it all. 

Charleston, I'm heading your way! 

I won't be running there...I'll be driving, just to clarify... ;)
