sounds like hallelujah

This semester has flown by! I am so thankful for how much time I've gotten to spend with my sweet friends. So far, I've been finishing up my junior year (EEEEEEKS!) and getting ready for Kenya! I met a new friend that will be going on the same team to Kenya, Hannah Hawkins! She is so precious and I cannot wait to spend time and serve for a month with her! Speaking of Kenya, I leave in 34 days!!!!!! My heart is so full of joy and excitement! I can't wait! So far, I've raised about $2,200, which leaves me about half way towards my goal. I know the Lord will provide and I'm excited to see the way He works in the next few weeks.

Today is dead day at Auburn. Which consists of my roommate, Mollie, and I watching What Not to Wear and Say Yes to the Dress all morning while eating Eggo Waffles. Aka not studying just yet. Mollie is about to leave in a week for THREE MONTHS in Italy. It's the longest we have been apart since our freshman year (literally, we haven't spent more than a few weeks apart), and even though I'm going to miss her a whole lot I can't wait to hear about the adventures she's about to have in Italy!

So many exciting things have happened in April!

My roomie from last year and great friend got engaged!!! Stevi and her fiance Kyle are so precious and I cannot wait to see one of my sweet friends get married! We are so excited for you Stevi!

Mollie made just the most precious birthday cake! Can't wait for bunkbeds next year wahoooo

Smiths younglife. Mount up y'all

Anne Elizabeth turned 21!!! She was one of my first friends at Auburn. We lived down the hall from each other in Owen and have been besties since. I'm so thankful for her and our friendship! She is beautiful inside and out! So thankful she was born!!!


Loving the band The Head and The Heart lately. Especially this song.

Oh hey birthday boy

You know those people in your lives that are just not allowed to grow up? If you could choose one age for them to be for the rest of your life, that would be just the greatest? Well this applies to my baby brother, Patrick. TODAY IS HIS BIRTHDAY! And I'm just taken a back. I mean, in my head, he's supposed to forever be five years old. And clearly, every time I see him on his birthday I want to tell him that he literally has to stop. He has to stay five years old. 

So, since he won't listen, and I guess since that's biologically impossible, we should definitely celebrate how awesome he has grown up to be. I'm so proud of this not so little anymore guy! 

Just the most precious little brother and sister on earth. Pat has been playing golf since he was this little and he's going to make it on the PGA tour. I'll be his manager.. or coach.. or caddy. (We'll talk later about this pat.)

Can't believe my sweet little brother is old enough to drive! On this note, everyone clear the streets, Patrick is LEGAL. Just kidding, but really Patrick, if you're reading this- click it or ticket (who am I kidding, you probably arent.. I'll remind him tomorrow)
