Why Marriage Is Not The Happily Ever After We Thought It Was

Now I’m not married or even engaged for that matter so I’m not sure if I’m truly qualified to even write this post but I’m going to attempt it anyway. It’s obvious based off my other posts that Tommy and I are pretty serious and that we even have been talking about getting married a lot lately. We both know that we want to marry each other, it’s just a matter of time and letting the details work themselves  ...

Something I’m learning (The Hard Way Of Course)

Spending time by myself. For some reason lately I’ve forgotten that I need to spend time alone. I forgot the joys of having absolutely no commitments and just relaxing. Of watching a funny TV show or going for a random drive by myself. I forgot that this is what gives life to me. You see, I’m an introvert in the truest sense of the word. I crave time alone to process my thoughts and check my heart and desires. I’m realizing  ...

D A Y  1 2 So today is day 12 of the blog-tember challenge and what I’m learning is I’m more awful at following this blogging plan than I had originally thought I would be lol but I’m back today and the topic is a “Currently” post.

WritingReading&MyDirtBike | Blog-tember Day 4 |

Today’s prompt from Blog-tember is: What are you passionate about? Honestly this is something I am just learning how to answer. For a long time I felt like I didn’t really have all that many passions or hobbies. I actually decided one day to pray about this and ask God to help me find some hobbies cause I felt funny not really knowing what I enjoyed doing. I felt like I was too busy stressing about something silly during my free  ...

My Ideal Day // Blog-tember Challenge Day 2

So just to keep you guys updated, I got back from the Bahamas Monday night at 12:30 pm and it was THE BEST vacation ever. It was so fun and I can’t wait to write a post about it but until then I’m linking up with Bailey Jean at Brave Love Blog and attempting to blog every day in the month of September (long shot I think but still worth a try). Today’s topic is Your Ideal Day. This post couldn’t have come at a better  ...

28 hours and 15 minutes

And I will be in the Bahamas!! I’m so excited guys 🙂 Just wanted to drop in and let you guys know about a trip that I’ve been counting down the days until. Back in May of this year, I graduated from college with a bachelor’s in Psychology and one of my best friends and my boyfriend surprised me with this trip for Tommy and I to go on. It’s literally the best surprise I’ve ever gotten and I’m beyond excited  ...

True Life: I Hate The Unknown

It’s true. I hate the unknown more than anything. When I don’t know the details of things that are happening in my life I get anxious. I love to be prepared and when I’m prepared I think that I’m the one in control of what is happening in my life. Obviously this isn’t true in the slightest. God’s in control, no matter how much planning and preparing I do. He ultimately decides how things happen in my life.  ...

Bliss Part 2

Hi friends 🙂 I just wanted to stop by and elaborate on my last post (if you missed it, you can check it out here). When I wrote that one I was having one of those days where I was so exhausted that I was having a hard time really focusing on getting out what I really wanted to say. I thought I’d try my best to try to explain a little more about my thoughts behind the post today but I’ve also been having I guess what you would  ...

Bliss

A word I would use to describe how I feel about my relationship with Tommy. I’m not naive enough to think it’s because of how great of a guy he is, though that’s true. I also know that it isn’t because we are practically the same person, just different genders – though that’s true as well. I’ve been at this dating thing for quite some time now. I’ve always been one of those girls who wished and  ...
