Welcome to my blog! I hope you can find a home within these pages. If you're a hot-mess than you're in the right place.



Hello, stranger.
Long time no see.

If I'm honest, and you've heard this from me before...
My life is totally crazy right now. 

I'm a little too busy to be posting on a weekly basis, so for now, I'm going to take a small break/post more leisurely until I have more time to devote to my blog. 

This makes me sad, but I don't want to feel bad for not posting content or pressure from not keeping to a schedule. I need to be realistic with myself and know that I can't do everything!

All I have for you today is merely a life update to tell you the 411 in my life right now.



So, I'm naturally blonde, but I've been dying my hair RED for the past eight years. 
If you were to ask me maybe a year a half ago if I'd ever go blonde I'd say:


And here I am now, a blonde-haired girl. #neversaynever
For the past year I have been in the process of lightening my hair, and I'm finally where I've wanted to be for such a long time! Enjoy the transformation below:



Last month I went to LA with my school!

Every year at my school, the Sophomores and Juniors get to go on a mission trip. Last year they went to Brussels, Belgium, and this year we went to Los Angeles! 
We worked with the LA Dream Center and had an amazing week serving the Lord, and laughing like crazy people.

I won't go into detail about this because I did start a post for this trip, and then got busy... BUT I will write it and share it with you!

I am currently a second year, Sophomore. I plan on graduating the Summer of 2019!
Crazy to think that I have only 4 more semester of school and I'm done. 

This past week was Spring Break, I didn't do much, but I did visit Chicago for a day!  

Next stop // end-of-the-year retreat! 1 month left to goooooo.

As of today we are 94 days out! This is seriously so exciting because when we first got engaged our countdown was at 387. 

Three. more. months.

We have a lot of stuff done, but a lot of stuff left to do. The planning has been getting harder, especially with the guest list. There definitely have been several points where I have wanted to just give up on planning and elope. But, I'm not a quitter.

On Sunday, My maid of honor and bridal crew threw me a beautiful bridal shower! I felt so very loved. It was perfectly decorated, and had all of my favorites there. 

The best ever.

Okay, thats everything! Thanks for sticking with me.
I had a lot more stuff in the works these next couple of months that I can't wait to share with you. 

As the semester comes to a close I'm hoping to have more time to write some posts!
