A Week at a Time |11/18/16

When life gets crazy or exciting or overwhelming or things change, I write. It’s always been this way for me. And so as an extension of this, I am going to have a weekly, “here’s a little bit of life”, post. From working in college ministry to life as a part time nanny. Date nights and soccer games on the weekends. Reading and drinking coffee and squeezing in a run. Just taking a moment to look back at what the week has brought me before plunging into that all so wonderful weekend! 


It’s been a cleansing week. With my work schedule being lighter then I expected it to be, I have had time to tackle some life things.

Maybe it’s because Continue reading “Late Night Notes // Life of a Night Owl”

I’ve put together a list of a few little things that I look forward to when I come home. Some of these things seem small, but most of you travelers will Continue reading “The Joys in Returning”

Dreaming Big and What’s Next

Have you ever been bogged down by your dreams? It sounds so contrary to all the motivational quotes and the whimsicality that goes with the term dream, but I think it can happen. Moments where you want so badly to pursue that thing, but being frustrated in knowing that it’s just not time yet. It can be tiring. It can make you all out want to give up, or at least wish you had a more “down to earth” dream.

But that is not the definition of a dream. Continue reading “Dreaming Big and What’s Next”
