Three months ago yesterday, I moved back to Tallahassee after what felt like the biggest crash-and-burn of my life. Today, I look back over these past few months and stand in absolute amazement and gratitude and with a deeper hope than I ever thought imaginable. It's not a hope that comes from an ease of… Continue reading hope in the furnace.
Howdy, I'll probably make this one short and sweet, but this is something that the Lord has continually been laying on my heart in the season of life I'm in, and I wanted to share it with you. Yes, you. The beautiful soul reading this at this very moment. First, I want you to be… Continue reading Rejoicing with tears+shaky knees.
Hey there! I'm back! Holy moly. You know that feeling when you haven't seen someone in a really long time and you almost don't even know what to say because there's so much to say? That's me right now. So I guess I'll kinda just go for it and see where we end up :)… Continue reading A reintroduction.
Hey, friend! It's definitely been a while. I've missed this--writing and pouring out my heart. It's not that I haven't wanted to. I have. I've had a ton of ideas swim through my head, and I've got notepads to prove it. But something's been holding me back. You want to know the truth? I'VE BEEN… Continue reading The war.
Happy 2018, my friends!! (We're now 3 months in but it's fine, 2018's still pretty young.) So this is a pretty big year, I guess. I turn 21, which is really not old at all, but last week I told the kid I nanny that I was born in 1997, and after he did the… Continue reading BOLD.
All my single ladies, putcha hands up. I have been wanting to write on this topic for over a year now, no joke. Remember that list of blog topics I mentioned in my last post? Well, this one was in my top three. I've just been too nervous/didn't know how to put my thoughts into… Continue reading Waiting: Seasons of Singleness
Sometimes, things appear crystal clear. It's like, without a doubt in your mind, you know exactly what to do. Things fall into place perfectly. Things make sense. And then other times, you're in a position where you think to yourself, "what am I doing here? Why is this happening? What am I supposed to be… Continue reading Waiting.
Hey, friends. Long time no post! Therefore, long post. This semester totally caught me off guard--it couldn't be any more different than last semester. I'm a fan of change, so it's not all bad, but my priorities have been tested big time and I've had to reevaluate A TON. One of those mega reevaluations was… Continue reading Thoughts.
It's Christmastime in the city again, folks. It's that time of year where Christmas carols and lights and wrapping paper and ornaments and trees and Christmas cards and cookies *takes big huge gasp for air* surround us. This is usually my favorite time of the year. But even when the Christmas music began to play… Continue reading Wise Men, Wisdom Teeth, etc.
Happy (day after) thanksgiving! What a wonderful day filled with great food, family and sunshine. I sometimes catch myself complaining about having 80 degree Thanksgivings, but then I remember 1) I love sunshine and 2) life is just too dang beautiful to complain. 🙂 The homemade turkey and mashed potatoes on real china was certainly… Continue reading Thankful: 25 reasons for my heart to sing
