Over the Weekend

1. Bethel’s homecoming festivities wrapped up over the weekend with the fall banquet and the winning football game on Saturday. I learned that you NEVER should leave a football game early, even if you think there’s no way your team will win. Because they probably will win and everyone will run out onto the field, and you’ll miss it.  True story.

2. Ground was finally broken on my family’s new house, which is pretty neat. My brother and I got to check it out with my parents and naturally it turned into an awkward photo session.

3. Please keep my Mama in your prayers this week as she’ll be in the hospital recovering from surgery.

4. Hope you had a swell Monday!


Even When The Storm Comes.

Even when the rain falls 
Even when the flood starts rising 
Even when the storm comes 
I am washed by the water 

There are so many things in our day-to-day lives that we can choose to let rattle us. When the work piles up and stress creeps in and our joy goes out the door, it’s easy to wallow in our negativity. I  had *this NEEDTOBREATHE song on repeat this week. It’s a reminder to me that God is still good, and faithful, and all-powerful, no matter what our circumstances may be. I am so guilty of letting my negative outlook on things overpower my mind. I want to choose to let joy reign in my life, and praise God no matter what lays before me. 

September Wishlist

I’m sensing a Tory Burch Theme…
It’s hard to believe that the final week of my summer is here. Oddly enough, I find my self looking forward to the routine of school, and the changing of the season. I love me some boots and pumpkin flavored lattes! I’m in love with Tory Burch’s fall collection and am saving up to snag that perfect little satchel. It even has a “T” tag. Destiny? I think so. My go-to outfit at school is my Paige Skinnies, Frye boots and a chic little jacket.

 During the first few warm weeks at school I love to wear dresses and jackets together. I can’t wait to go dig out all my fall clothes! Let the packing begin.
