Oxymoron? I say yes. I just saw a commercial for some new “exercise” equipment that involves “comfortably sitting!” and “getting a back massage!” whilst “burning calories and gaining abs!” All I can say is… whaa? It hurts my brain to think that Americans really see these commercials and say “Yeah, that’s gotta work! Genius!”...
A Turn Around
WOW, today was fantastic! Who knew that sunshine could change moods so quickly? I for one am happy that it does. South Carolina saw an 83 degree day today and I just can’t complain about it. I am grateful I did not allow my ginger-white freckle skin burn as much as I wanted to roll up my work sleeves and lay on the hood of my car in the parking lot during lunch. I just can’t...
Missin' My Girls.
I miss my girls. College was such a blast and I miss it immensely. I love to spend every day with my dearest, but having your girls and support system is just something I can’t get used to not having around me. Trust me, my fiance is an amazingly supportive man, however, girlfriends are a totally different kind of support. Even though I have fought with all of them at some point in time or...
Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little...
Today marks the 5 year anniversary of my handsome fiance and I getting back together after a short break up between Junior and Senior year of high school. We knew we would be getting back together, but had a lot on our plates until after our finals week for our sports (he is a wrestler, I am a swimmer).That was the best day; my sweet won first place for his weight class and I broke my personal...
The Next Challenge.
Oh complaining, how I love you. I love to complain about my job, missing family, missing friends, stress, money, family, friends, and then whine whine whine some more. It is so annoying and by far the largest downside to my personality. I overwhelm myself and all the people around me with it a large amount of the time. The job I am currently working makes me much worse, which is really difficult...
Sounds from Home
Today was a pretty legit awesome day here in SC. I do want to move back North again soon, however, I will miss this awesome weather and beautiful scenery. One thing I take with me everywhere though is my wind chime. I certainly feel at home wherever my love is, but growing up my step mother always had this awesome wind chime outside our sliding glass doors and it brings me so much comfort to...
Dreams of Travel...
Yellow, All! So, my dearest and I have talked so much about moving and trying to find jobs other than where we are now. South Carolina has not been our favorite (aside from Charleston, which is superb) and so we want to move back to the North side of the U.S. as soon as possible. All this talk about travel has made me think about real travel, like world travel. Where would I want to go? Well,...
As opposed to summer lovin’, which is quite nice as well. I have photography on the brain. If looking through various photography blogs and swooning was a job, I would be a millionaire. I cannot spend enough time looking at the awesome lighting and macro angles and just outstanding point of views some of these artists have. It blows me away. The one photographic genius that I cannot cease to...
Hey look! They tied the knot. Get it? Good. My hunny and I want to do a ceremony that includes a version of the Celtic Hand-Fasting ceremony, but obviously with a focus on our Lord, not pagan beliefs. We will try to tweak it. But how cute is this? Way. Enjoy your superbowl Sunday. And Packers fans… get ready to cry. -S Source: greenweddingshoes.com via Samara Denee’ on Pinterest
Hello, Ya’ll! If there is a ya’ll… in which case, hello universe. It is I, me. Anywho, It has been a really challenging week. My love and I have been struggling with what exactly it is that God wants for us. Pros and Cons are adding up and they are just becoming confusing factors in a very large puzzle of… blah. So, it was time to take a look back at my favorite verse of...
