YOU are the beauty.

To celebrate finally being free of finals, and classes, and any real level of responsibility, my sister and cousin and I went out for a little bit of brunch this morning. It was tasty! That part was planned, but then we randomly decided to extend the visit further and go downtown to buy records!

Among the purchases were albums by Beach House, Florence + the Machine, and Tame Impala. Huzzah!
You can see the rest of my vinyl haul here.

Also wonderful? God is good. 
Last night He moved in some pretty interesting ways and answered my prayers for revival. So that was wonderful. I am still on my way of breaking out of my shell of insecurity, which seems to manifest itself most in the form of worries about body image or my personality, but He is faithful and good and true where I am not, the most loving God. And this life is so, so fleeting compared to an eternity spent with Him. I'm trying to remind myself of that!

This has been the best day I've had in the longest time.
What was your day like? Anyone else finally finished with finals? It's time for the weekend, baby!

+ I have been meaning to post this for some time now, so you probably have already seen it, but if you have not, please check out this video on people's reactions to being told they are beautiful. It is so impactful. It even made my dad emotional!


  1. I took my last final today and am finally home for a month:) it's a good day

  2. It's nice to read that you've enjoyed your day! And oh, those records, I wish I could have a vinyl player. Now I'm buying lots of CD's but some day I will change them to vinyls :D At least I hope so.

    1. Thanks! You should go buy one! (I kidnapped my mom's, haha!) The best way to start is to get a cheap vinyl player on sale at Target or Amazon, or even at a thrift store, and then build your collection off of used records. It's the most fun! But I still love CDs, too. :)

  3. A book you might like is "Grace for the Good Girl," it's one that my mum recommended to me recently and given some of the things you're battling you might find it helpful?
    So neat to hear updates and glad that God is working in your life!!! I will try to give that video a watch soon!

    1. Rad, I'll check it out! Thanks for the recommendation, I really appreciate it!

  4. Vinyls sound so good, every record goes deep into my heart.


Go with grace.
