Falling Short: Loving Thy Neighbor

Our church mission statement is “Love God. Make Disciples. Be Great Neighbors.” After *many* years, I feel like I have an understanding of loving God and making disciples. I understand why it’s so so important, and I know my strengths and weaknesses in both areas. When it comes to loving my neighbor….I struggle. I know…

Life Lately

Well, hey there. Long time no see. I’ve been MIA for many many reasons, but here’s a couple of life updates! 1) I did sorority recruitment! Wow FSU, I really stinkin missed you. I moved back in two weeks early because I had to be in town for recruitment! Here’s the update on that. Recruitment was…

Rough Waters

I thought it only fitting that I made the header to this post an ocean. With waves. It’s called ‘Rough Waters’. Do you get it? Are you laughing? Cool. Let’s get started now. I don’t think it’s particularly outlandish to assume that most of us don’t like doing things that make us uncomfortable, even if…

Questioning God

It’s 12:38 AM on July 4, I have no title for this post and I shouldn’t even be awake. I’m having one of those nights (which seem to be more and more frequent these days), where I lay awake, full of anxiety and fear, questioning God. The big, hard questions that in the light of…

Refining Myself: Identity

Get ready for a 12 part series, y’all! A couple of weeks ago, my sister sent me an Instagram story that Kayla Tuckerman Photography had posted (@kaylatuckermanphoto) saying she was looking for people to model the shirts for Jordan Lee Dooley’s new merch. My sister had done her college graduation pics with Kayla, and they were…

What God Taught Me Freshman Year

I’ve been thinking about this doing post for a while, but something like this deserves to have ample time dedicated to it and on this rainy Monday, I finally have that time. I could write a book on what I learned freshman year, but I’ll settle for a blog post. Freshman year was a true…

Apartment DIY: Watercolor Prints

When hurricane Irma barrelled through Tallahassee, I stocked up at Barnes & Noble to make the lockdown a little bit more pleasant. Two of the things I got were a calligraphy instructional guide and an introduction to watercolor book. As the rain fell and the storm passed, I picked up two new skills. I always…

5 Ways to Avoid The Summer Daze

I love summer. I look forward to summer all year for crying out loud! But my OCD really struggles in the long summer days without a set schedule. Even though I don’t have class at the same time every day during the school year, I still have a schedule for what I do each day….

Under $20: My Summer Jewelry Picks

I love the Bauble Bar look, but don’t have the Bauble Bar budget. Old Navy is ALWAYS having a sale and they’ve really upped their jewelry game. I usually get my statement pieces from J. Crew or Loft, but I went to Old Navy recently and was very impressed with the selection. Plus, everything is…

#Adulting: 10 Tips To Make Falling Asleep Easier

There’s a reason there’s a super calming sunset as the cover image for this post. Even though I’m *apparently* an adult now, I definitely don’t always do the things I know real adults do. If you’re between the ages of 18 and 23, you probably know what I’m talking about, at least a little bit….
