Life Update


Life is just too sweet right now. Every day I am constantly saying 'thank you' to God.

The most exciting reason is that we finally found a house after looking for over a year (and no, it is not the one in the picture above)! We are moving in next month and I am beyond excited. There is a very long to-do list that needs to be completed before the move, but I don't mind being busy. If I don't post for a little while, that is probably the reason.

I am also starting high school (ninth grade) in a couple weeks. I am really looking forward to it, I have lots of plans for my freshman year!

Evidently, things have been pretty exciting lately. I'm having trouble sleeping because I am just so happy! That's probably why I woke up so early and am sitting in my bed writing this at 6 AM.

Also, today might be my birthday.

  3. Ah oh my goodness, I'm so happy for you! Unsolicited advice I hope you don't mind: don't let packing to move stress you out, don't let anyone scare you into thinking high school is scary at all, and for gosh sakes, if you've ever wanted to keep a journal, your high school years are the time to start. I hope the good things keep snowballing. ♥

  7. Happy Birthday! :D There is nothing more fun than waking up early all excited about something awesome happening in your life. And I would have to second the notion of thankfulness -- it just fills me with joy when I can be grateful to God for all that He has done.

  13. That is one beautiful house, I actually thought that you were moving into it until I read the comments. I know you'll do just fine during highschool, keep doing what you're doing and He will carry you through. It's really not as daunting as it seems, and it will be over before you know it so just enjoy! Praying that the move goes well. :)
    P.S. Happy Birthday you gorgeous girl! x
