Perfection in a season...


I am so completely and totally in love with this weather! The high allll week is in the 70's. Seriously. Perfection. And I am massively looking forward to this weekend. Steffi and her Andrew will be staying with us, Andrew and Amber are getting MARRIED, and Andrew and I are getting an addition to our family. No, it's not a baby...just another puppy! We might possibly be crazy for doing so, but Sam needs a friend desperately. Andrew and I don't do as well as other dogs apparently. And the organization that we're getting this little girl from is INCREDIBLE. These people love the Lord and this is their ministry; serve the Lord and save some lives. It's called Heaven's Own Rescue and I highly recommend checking them out if you're interested in getting a puppy/dog. I also need to apologize for those of you who read for the lack of posts. Blame it on a mixture of laziness and busyness! But life has been really, really good. God is starting to open up some doors for both Andrew and myself, and I'm excited to see what's going to happen in the coming weeks. I promise to keep this updated a little better! And expect to see pictures of our newest addition, Dani, next week! I hope everyone has a chance to enjoy this amazing fall weather!

New season, new hair :)


My hair has been the same color blonde since i can remember. So this past Saturday, I decided to change that;

Obviously, one picture is curly and the other is straight, but just focus on the color! For the first time, I did low-lights AND highlights. I love how it looks and even more than that, I love that once the highlights start to grow out, it won't be that noticeable. Big plus! And it's nice to have a little least with hair!

The little things in life


Fall breezes. The arrival of a long awaited football season. Vanilla Chai Tea latte. Jeans. Hoodies. Open windows. Light jackets.

It is the little things in life that make days seem brighter and better and worthwhile. It's amazing how a hectic workday can be calmed and manageable with only a tall Toffee Nut Latte from Starbucks (thank you Nina). And how the anticipation of watching Appalachian State University hopefully devour East Carolina University this coming Saturday is just enough of a push to get through the rest of this week. Fall is probably one of my most favorite things in the world. The weather is lovely and there is nothing better (to me) then having my windows open and ceiling fans going. I can feel a change coming. Not only in the seasons of the year, but within the seasons of my life. I am content right now with what God is about to, even though I have no idea what it may be. The things that He has in store will be absolutely incredible. I can't wait until I can get up to Boone and see the leaves changing, bundle up in my favorite ASU attire and scream my lungs our with several other thousands of fans for the Mountaineers to dominate whoever they may be playing. If you can't tell, I'm excited about life today. So to everyone else that knows what I'm talking about and is just excited; get ready for an awesome autumn!



I can't explain it, but I believe that God is about to seriously do something big in my life. What I'm interested to see is if it will be something that I'll be happy about, or maybe something that will rock my world. And since I have not a clue what is about to happen, all I've been praying for is that my faith and strength will be increased greatly! I'm excited though. Whatever may happen. I'm beginning to get the feeling though that I'm ready for a move. Not to a different state or city maybe, but I'm ready to get a career started. Not for money or title; just because I believe I'm ready to handle it. I believe that in the past couple of years, God has allowed me to experience some things that has brought me to where I am now. I'm stronger in areas that I was incredibly weak in as well as a stronger person overall (at least I would like to believe that I am). God has His time line and has hard as it is to sometimes be submissive to it, it is obviously the best one to follow. Doors will open and doors will close, and at this point right now, I have to be faithful in knowing which doors to walk through and which ones to walk away from.

But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
