So, it’s been a while since I’ve posted on here and obviously a lot has changed in the last 7+ months. So, here are the highlights: We have moved! Within the same city, but to a different apartment complex. My friend, Ashley, and I started Write It Down Stationery, a stationery company and blog dedicated […]Read more "Life Update!"
Sometime this week I saw this saying, “Give everything but up,” and it got me thinking about the things in my life I will not abandon, as well as how not giving up will show you your true potential.

I appreciate all of the words of encouragement I got from friends and family because of my last post. I was praying that if God truly wanted me here, He would show me why. Many times, God doesn’t answer that why question for us, but for me He did…at least enough.
