Feel Your Feelings

Just wanted to drop in and share a little about what’s going on in my life. Today I had a GREAT day. I’ve probably gone a few months without really seeing any of my friends because we all seemed to be really busy and our schedules never seemed to match up. So I was really excited to hang out with my friends today. I had a girl’s sleep over with my cousin Nichole last night, which was great because it was just continuous  ...

But First, Jesus

You guys! I actually woke up extra early today to spend time reading my bible! A true miracle if you know how much of a morning person I am not. I even started this post after I spent time reading because I was so proud of myself and wanted to share. However, my day went quickly downhill after attempting to finish that post. I have a confession- I thought that I was being so good waking up early to spend time with Jesus. I thought that I  ...

Pending Merger: APPROVED

I normally have some sort of idea of what I’m going to write when I start my posts but today that is not the case. I have some news that I want to share with you all but don’t really have a format on how I want to share it or what I want others to get from this post lol. As anyone who has been reading along with my blog might already know, the bank that I currently work at has been pending a merger for over three years. We just  ...

3 Ways To Avoid Information Overload + Something Important To Remember

So as I mentioned in my post Information Overload, I was convicted about attempting to gain as much knowledge as I could without really dwelling on anything I was learning. I wasn’t realizing that when I try to read as much as I can, I’m forgetting to really take the time to let the information I’m learning impact my actions as well- which means that it’s really not all that useful anyway. I’ve been praying and  ...

Our Love Story / One Year Anniversary- Part 2

If you missed part one, read that first here. I was angry and upset and seriously questioning God at this point. I had really believed that God had led me to Tommy to possibly even marry him one day. Everything just seemed to line up so well when we were together and we seemed to be so similar but I just couldn’t understand why God allowed us to break up. I know now it was only temporary and we just had more growing to do before we  ...

Our Love Story / One Year Anniversary – Part 1

I’ve always been one of those girls who wanted a boyfriend- someone I could spend most of my time with and genuinely have a good time with. I always thought it would be an awesome thing to meet my future husband at a young age and end up getting married young and getting to live out my life with my husband. Growing up I’ve had a few boyfriends that I considered to be serious but I never really considered God’s way of having  ...

Information Overload

My pastor said something in one of his sermons a few weeks ago that I haven’t been able to get out of my head. It was something along the lines of how we live in such an information age and it’s so easy to hear and read biblical advice anywhere. He specifically used an example of sermons- we are able to listen to basically any sermon we want to online and jump from sermon to sermon without dwelling on anything we learned. His  ...

That Moment I Realized I Was A Real Adult

Am I the only one that has ever questioned whether or not they were considered a “real” adult? I mean what happens if you pay for your own car, pay for all your own bills, but still live with your parents? Or what if you live on your own but still are attending school? I’d say both of those situations qualify for the “real” adult title but how do we really know? We’re considered “adults” when  ...

Life To The Fullest

I’ve discovered the secret to living life to the fullest- well God’s let me in on the secret and well actually it’s not much of a secret at all…. Do you ever feel like there are so many things that you want to do but never really have the time for? Things that you think you’d enjoy but after doing all the “regular” every day things that need to get done you don’t feel like you have the energy  ...

Bahama Vacation Recap!!

Okay so today I decided it’s finally the day to recap the vacation Tommy and I went on to the Bahamas almost two months ago! 🙁 I can’t believe it’s been that long already and I still miss it so much. I kept putting it off because when we were on vacation we took all our pictures on Tommy’s phone and I thought it would be easy to send them to mine but by the end of the vacation we had over 100 pictures so it  ...
