2 years

2 years ago the sweetest man alive asked me to be his girlfriend:)
One day, I'll post about how it all happened.
But for now, I'm going to leave you with these pictures...

This is the first picture we ever took together! :) This was an AP Environmental Science field trip.
He asked me out on May 30th, 2011! This was a few weeks later on our first date :)

This is a picture we took on our 1 year anniversary on May 30th, 2012.
Fancy dinner, paddle boating, and my best friend.

Valentines Day 2013<3

And here we are, two years later. Happy anniversary my sweet Hunter!

Joy & Judgements

Life has been crazy lately... WHAT'S NEW?!
Classes are done. All my home work is done. Finals are done. 
First year of college is DONE!
It's a super exciting feeling! I'm looking forward to relaxing this summer,
 it's a much needed break.
My grades were decent this semester...
but next semester I'm definitely going to work a LOT harder.
College is hard. And you have to study. And you can't get lazy. BOO!
 But all of my feelings towards school are feelings of joy.
And happiness.
It's pretty great.

Another huge source of my joy lately has been two amazing girls!
Their names are Megan and Jessica!

Megan never fails to make me laugh. 
She is so hilarious and fun to be around, it's great.
She's not the best advice giver...
(She always just says "The grass is greener on the other side")
but she is an AMAZING listener. I love how much ice cream we eat when we're together.
Even if we haven't talked for weeks, we can hang out and be silly!
We like to rock out to songs in the car and she likes to gross me out with feet.
Megan is in love with my glasses and snap chat.
She is such a strong and independent girl who isn't needy AT ALL.
She's been such an amazing friend to me for years and I am so grateful for her crazy self:)
Love you Megs!

 Jessica is SUCH an amazing girl too! We pretty much live at Dairy Queen.
We have some super great conversations about boys, life, God, etc.
The thing that I love about this girl is that she is such a great influence.
Jessica isn't like all the other girls out there... she is so sweet and pure.
She has such a huge heart and just loves everyone!
We are very similar and have the same feelings all the time so it's great to have someone that can relate to me and how I'm feeling.
Jessica doesn't like to take pictures with me, but we are not gym buddies so be prepared to see hot pics of us sweating it up at the gym... (just kidding)
 Thanks for being an amazing friend Jessica! I love you!

There is so much in life to be happy about.
I have so many great blessings in my life!

I'm trying to focus on the positives in my life.
It's been pretty difficult lately because I feel like I'm constantly being judged.
People feel the need to tell me how to live my life, who to care about, how to act, etc.
It gets pretty frustrating but I'm learning to let go other people's judgements
 and focus on my own happiness!
  Recently, others have felt the need to tell me what's best for me and what my plans should be, but quite honestly, that's up to me to decide!
(I definitely think the Lord is trying to test my patience with certain individuals...) 
Whatever is meant to be, will happen.
I'm trusting God's plan for me and not my own!
*Proverbs 3:5-6 {Check it out, it's my favorite}
There's still a ton of change going on in my life, and it is scary, but so exciting!
Every single trial I face, only makes me stronger.
I am learning so much about myself and what I want out of life.
I'm having a great time! :)

Have a wonderful rest of your week to everyone who took the time to read this!

Keep smiling.
Keep loving.
Keep laughing!
