Summer is coming to a close...I hope

8.30.2009

As terrible as this is going to sound, I have to say it; I am not a huge fan of summer. Don't get me wrong; I love the beach and the pool and cookouts, but as far as 90+ days and humidity so high that my hair doesn't remember what it's like to be in a non-afro state, I could most definitely do without. I love knowing that football season is FINALLY here and that my birthday is officially less than 2 months away. I love knowing that soon light jackets will be pulled out and jeans will be worn once again. I know that when I was in school, I adored the summer. But this whole being in the real world thing, doesn't allow for June and July to be anything but ridiculously hot. Yes, I realize how whiny I sound, but I am very okay with it. Tomorrow and Tuesday are predicted to be in the 70's and that will be absolutely amazing. It's these summer months that make me miss Boone more than I do on average. So when I turn my calendar to September on Tuesday, I (and my hair) will breath a sigh of relief.

A Low County Tour

8.28.2009

Last week, Andrew and I were able to get away and spend some time together at the beach and away from the real world. It was incredible, and had Sam been with us, I would have been perfectly fine staying down there. We were blessed with awesome weather, beautiful scenery, and some quality time. It was all very much needed and very much appreciated. Here's a little glimpse of our awesome time

We were able to visit Beaufort, Charleston and Hilton Head while we were down in South Carolina. After leaving Hilton Head for the first time, we were in love! We're hoping to vacation there next summer. It is beautiful and still very natural, which that in itself is pretty remarkable. It was hard to leave, but nice to come home at the same time. I can't wait until our next vacation!

Hibernation...OVER!

I am so very truly sorry for my lack of posting! It is about to come back in full swing! Life is amazing and can't wait for the fall and all of the exciting things that God has in store for us! Keep checking back...I assure you, posting will resume.

Crazy Love

8.09.2009

I have come to the conclusion that I have a whooole lot of things that I need to change and to place in God's hands. God has continued to amaze me and reveal Himself to me in ways that I could not even begin to describe. I have learned things about myself that I have never noticed but want to change desperately. I am currently reading Crazy Love by Pastor Frances Chan, and it is changing my thought process and mindset on so many things. As much as I would like to not be considered 'lukewarm' in my walk, I am in way too many aspects, and I am not okay with that in any way. I say that I give my heart and soul to Him, but it's definitely in sections and not all of me. How is that even remotely okay?? I have waves of unwavering devotion, but it is not nearly enough. This is a God who has asked of my everything and I continuously give some...it pains me to realize it, but that to be the first step right? If I didn't know that I needed to change it, then there is no way that I could have. Praise God for teaching me patience, humility, and fear. I highly recommend this book to anyone. It will be impossible for you not to be changed.

I have no interesting title

8.01.2009

I have been so slack on posting lately! I don't know if it's laziness or just lack of fascinating things to talk about. The summer has been great so far and Andrew and I still have a beach trip coming up (yay). I am super pumped about next weekend because Brittany, Burke and Erin are coming to say with us! Love it so much. I miss my friends and it'll be so nice to have them here. Have you noticed I'm reaching for things to write about?? Man...I am boring. I'll try to think of something the next time that might actually be worth writing/reading about. One thing that is exciting is that football season is right around the corner! And I am so ready. I mean, baseball is okay, but it is not football (obviously). Andrew and I will hopefully be making it up to Boone for a couple of App games and we're going to the Carolina/Miami game (courtesy of Andrew's awesome brother). Okay I'm done for now. I'll try to have a more interesting life to write about the next time!
