Check out my guest post on my best friend Maggie's blog here.
https://youtu.be/BeIojNb0Lbs Anything I have to say won't do the video above justice. I ventured out of my written-word comfort zone and tried my hand at video editing using iMovie. By no means do I consider myself a pro, BUT I had footage from our wedding day and I really wanted to create something special for … Continue reading My Wedding Video | June 30, 2018
Long time, no see (read: post). I just re-read my last post, and I'd like to say so much has changed, and it definitely has, but at times I still feel like I'm in that somewhere between place even though it's now year two of teaching, advising yearbook, and being a true adult.

I’ve only hit my goal of going to the gym 4 times a week 3 out of 10 weeks so … Continue reading God’s Will and My Choices: A Relationship

My brother is a senior in high school this year, and he’s signed to play baseball next year at a university that also just so happens to be THE school … Continue reading “I write so that others might be inspired.”
You guys. I’m finally student teaching and I’m not even exhausted (yet)! Okay, so it’s only day two and my co-teacher and I are REALLY hoping for the first snow day of the semester tomorrow (prayers please). But still. I have a desk and a key to the classroom and a badge and access to … Continue reading To My Teachers
