Processed with VSCO with c1 presetHi, I’m Corinne. And I’m an Amateur.

Which makes me a lot like some of you, perhaps.

I grew up in Lilburn, GA with three younger siblings and a Jack Russell Terrier named Patches.

I was always on the back row for class photos and spent most days climbing trees and building forts with my brothers.

I was homeschooled for several years and worked at Chick-fil-A for seven.

One time I accidentally ran over an alligator with my mom’s minivan.

I paid am repaying thousands of dollars for a piece of paper that says I attended the University of South Carolina for four years and didn’t fail/get kicked out before graduation.

During that time I loved on high school kids through a ministry called Young Life, planned weddings for a semester, and wondered what in the world I was supposed to do with my life after it all was over.

I worked as a camp counselor for a few summers, and picked up the nickname “Coco” somewhere along the way. Those summers sparked an affection for the outdoors and taking my coffee black.

After college I drove thousands of miles away from my comfort zone to live in Death Valley, CA as a volunteer with A Christian Ministry in the National Parks.

And then I moved to Glacier National Park, MT to manage a restaurant and hike through over 150 miles of the most beautiful acreage of the United States.

Right now I’m living in Colorado Springs, CO as my fiance, Brian, and I train to own a Chick-fil-A restaurant. We’re getting married in March!

I’m one of those people who sticks to the outskirts of a party, whose cocktail of choice is an Old Fashioned, and whose musical taste has been described as “gloomy.”

My aspirations are few and include: opening my own coffee shop, becoming a published author, and riding in a hot air balloon.

When Jordan asked me if I’d want to collaborate on this project, I initially thought to myself, “yeah, but I’m sure I won’t have much to add.” And then I realized it’s because I don’t have it all together that I’d have much to offer.

I’m ready and excited to navigate the questions of “what do I do with these dreams and goals?” and “what in the world am I supposed to do with my life?” with you.

Maybe we’ll figure it out together, maybe we’ll realize the answers don’t exist. Either way, thanks for joining us for Amateur Hour. I’m really glad you’re here.

Rooting for you,

Corinne

    I just have to say that your three aspirations are way too in sync with mine. Every since moving to California and driving through the wine country every morning to work, I’ve fallen in love with hot air ballons and just want someone, whoever the heck I don’t care, to get down on one knee and ask me to marry him while I’m holding a glass of wine and traveling hundreds of feet in the air. And then I just announced to the universe that I was working on writing a book (only Jesus knows what about), and opening a coffee shop has been a dream since the first day I spent 5 hours in a starbucks, sick from too much iced coffee but so blind,head over heels in love with the atmosphere that I couldn’t bear the thought of leaving. All to say- seriously can’t believe I just wrote all that out- I am SO stoked to follow you guys on this blog, and PLEASE let me know if I can jump in with y’all some how. I’m all about collaborating and connecting with people and spreading Jesus without others really knowing it’s him, so I’m just so stoked to see where it all leads. Don’t mind me as I word vomit all over your page, I just get really hyped when others are doing what I love to do too! Keep it real guys.

      Hey, thanks so much for dropping us a line! I love hearing that your passions align with ours. Jordan and I are going to talk about having someone guest post for us- or at least have their story featured- at some point, and I think you’d be a great fit! And if we can do anything from our side for you, please don’t hesitate to ask. I hope this past weekend was really great- I’m looking forward to hearing the who story 🙂
