Those Early Mornings...

Featuring my sister, Lydia, today. Getting up in the morning can be a little rough some times and Lydia is evidence of that....but in no time at all things can be straightened up. No one would ever guess!




A Single's Gift of Singleness

Sometimes I wallow in self-pity and mope around because I still remain single to this day (although, honestly, I am really not that old and so am really not that concerned about it).

I am that girl that has always wanted to get married and have children, but here I sit writing this post as a 22 year old who has never been even asked out on a date (and who also should be doing her homework right now and not writing blog posts at all. Ahem!).

It will be nice to have another year of school put behind me, but I also know that summer will be different.
I won’t be seeing the same people each day.
I will still be able to see some of these people, but some of them I may never see again.
Being in college is an interest stage of life.
Each year as the school year closes, there are some friends who graduate. Some friends move on to a different school, some friends move back to their home town, some friends just change.
Even the ones who do come back for the next year, are going to be busier or have other things going on that cause our paths to cross …
