Life is about lots of decisions and i believe that everything happens for a reason. One thing that i feel that happens for a reason is the person that you get married to.... marriage is such a strong bond between two people that i cant wait to experience it in my own life. Here are a few dresses that i would love to share with you....

the house that built me...

i have lived in my wonderful hometown my whole life until i came to college at middle tennessee in fall of 2008. there are so many times that i miss sleeping in my own bed, and when i miss just chillin with my parents. but throughout my college experience (even though its only half over) i have met many wonderful people and have learned many many things. im nervous about graduating from college because there are SO many questions/decisions that come to mind that i have to make whenever i graduate, just to name a few- Where will i live after i graduate? Do i want to do my student teaching in the boro or in my hometown? What grade do i really want to teach? Who will still be my friends from college after i graduate?
Life can be very hard at times.... but i know that everything happens for a reason.
I am a strong believer in that phrase. I really feel deep down that God has a plan for everyones life and thats why things happen like they do. No one understands why people pass away when they do or why people get cancer.... those are things that i think about everyday since many people around me are going through hard times right now.
Joshua 1:9 - Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
This verse is one that i actually came across on facebook this morning that one of my "sisters" of aopi had posted on there to another one of our "sisters" that is going through a hard time right now. I really feel like God is with us whenever we come across a hard situation or something difficult that we are afraid we cant accomplish.
im ready to be in my hometown. -3 more days.....

sweet summertime...

Summer is here and it makes me SO excited.
There are many wonderful things that i love about summer....

"The Baby Bayliner" is my amazing boat that is small but gets the job done. I usually go out on this at least twice a week. Thanks mom & dad. :)

Because having my boat, it made me fall in love with wakeboarding. It seriously is something that i talk about at least once a day & sometimes more than once.

Not only do i love being on the lake, but i love going to the beach too. Being there listening to the waves crash on the shore with my family is so amazing.

Sweet, sweet Selmer is our hometown and during the summer is when i get to hang out with all my '08 children. :) my friends from high school will always be my true friends.

Having the time to be able to read is one of my favorite things to do in my free time. I am currently reading The Last Song.

This is an ariel view shot of the marina that i work at called Aqua Yacht Harbor. See the little red roof building on the far left dock in the picture, well thats where i spend my summer working at. The fuel dock crew is pretty much my second family.

My favorite thing about summertime, is that i get to spend so much time with my family. Whether it is camping in the brick apartment in pickwick or going to eat at russells, i always have so much fun with them. My parents are amazing and my brother Mason is my best friend.
