I’m Allison Casey, a 26 year old travelin’, cardigan’ wearin’ ukulele playin’, treehouse dwellin’ writer and certifiable nerd living, working, and playing in the beautiful City of Oaks - Raleigh, NC.
It was a dark and stormy afternoon in Montauk.
At least, that’s the way I’ve always pictured it. I have no actual memory of the event.
I was three years old, with a speech impediment and no swimming ability. But, like most things, I didn’t let a little old thing like not knowing how to swim stop me from trying. I jumped into the deep end of the pool, sinking like a rock.
My mom dove in after me in all her clothes, pulled me out, dried me off and kissed me a hundred times. And then I uttered the words for which I would become famous.
“See me swim?”
And here I am, as an adult, jumping in feet first all over again into whatever opportunities are presented to me, attempting to quell my wanderlust, and crossing items off my life list.
Join me on my adventures.
