Life Lately


Oh my, summer is here! I've been on the countdown for some time now, so I cannot believe it has finally arrived. It's crazy to think I am no longer a Junior but an actual SENIOR in high school! I am so excited for summer this year and fun new things I'm really wanting to experiment with. Let's just say my summer to-do list is getting longer by the day! Of course, this means more DIY posts here on the blog!

Photos from my week: 1) spent a day with my girly Nicole, for her graduation part. 2) treated myself to a chocolate croissant and cup of coffee, (you might recognize the photo from my coffee talk post). 3) My girls from my Bible study group at Starbucks (so we can stay awake, ha) and yes, we finally got a picture! 4) Over the week I was able to go visit this adorable little ranch with brand new baby horses. It was so sweet, and totally made me miss riding! 5) took a quick snap of these gorgeous daisies! 6) loved this quote and wanted to remember it for this week.

Inspired By: Can I say summer? There's something about the warm weather that really makes me feel awake and ready to start my day. I feel more reproductive and full of energy.  I really want to plan some fun/new activities with my friends, go bowling, visit with my family, and of course go see some awesome movies this summer! I want my summer to be easy and relaxed, but with not a minute to waste! 

Thankful For: This school year has been so amazing and fun! I've been able to try so many new things, go to different places, and spend quality time with my friends way more often. My teachers this year have been incredible. I seriously cannot imagine how my life would be if I didn't take classes! It would be lonely, and dull. And of course, without my parents love and support I wouldn't have made it through the school year what-so-ever. Junior year, thank you for being so kind to me! :)

Reading: Currently I've been reading Introverts in the Church by ...... It's a book about the life of introverts and how we need to embrace our social personalities especially in a world that discourages it! I literally just started reading in but I'm already hooked. A few months ago I picked up the book Quiet by Susan Cain, which I rented at the library. By the time got around to reading it, it was time to return it. So I was going to check it out a few days later but forget to go by and pick it up! But I'm so glad I didn't, well not yet at least, because I wouldn't have found this new book. I really wanted a book about Introverts but with a Christian worldview and thoughts and therefore this book was a perfect fit! Of course this summer I'm wanting to read Quiet and finish that book, but right now I'm too hooked on Introverts in the Church. Once I'm done reading it, I'll have to give you an update on what it was all about! And I'm thinking of doing a coffee talk post on introverts?!

Excited About: Going to the beach with my friend Marie! I'm not a beach girl and I hate going in the water but I love walking on the pier or jetty. Plus theres nothing like the salty air that makes your hair beautifully curly -ha! I guess I really only like the beach when going with friends because we can just hang out and do whatever. Plus it makes a difference when I go with my friends who also don't love the beach.

Playing: Okay so if you've heard of Candy Crush, you will understand why I'm a tad addicted! This app is just too fun, and I'm constantly wanting to beat every level! But besides that, I've been a fan of solitaire and backgammon. I know, their super old games everyones plays them, but I love laying on my bed while listening to music, playing these games! It's really relaxing to me and because it's summer I can waste my time on these silly apps! What games/apps have you been loving lately?
