enjoy your life, friends

The day my sister and I had the best strawberry milkshake known to man.

Yo, life is too short not to have fun and enjoy every second, y'all. 

I know we get dragged down sometimes by the drudgery of life: we go to class, church, work, and back home again on a seemingly infinite loop. Sometimes it seems like all that we hope for is still a long way off, but don't miss out on the joy of the ordinary, the everyday, the right-now. Each day we can ask the Lord to help us lean into His love and the soul-filling purpose of our lives.

"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, 
do it all for the glory of God." 
~ 1st Corinthians 10:31

 What does God want to do in and through me today? How can my morning bowl of oatmeal and email-answering at work and reading Pride and Prejudice in the evenings bring glory to God?


Meeting Ellen. Sort of.

She's surprisingly cardboard in person.

Jumping rope. Ok, this one's weird. (Not that meeting Ellen wasn't, LOL). But....I've been getting so bored with running constantly, and wanted to mix up my workout routine a little bit and let me just say that WOW, I love jumping rope?! It makes me feel like a little kid again.

Daydreaming. As my college graduation looms ever nearer (three months, guys!), I can't help but dream of working as a full-time writer. How amazing would it be to write freelance from home, and write novels, and edit books, and publish books, and oh my goodness BOOKS. The Lord has been pulling at my heartstrings about this lately; more on that to come later, possibly...

+ What about you? What are three things that you are just out-of-your-mind grateful for today? And tell me about your life, yo! What's new?
