The clock only said 5:30 when my eyes opened up on Saturday morning and my stomach was all a fuss. In just three short hours, my feet would hit the pavement to run my very first 5K. Having trained for over seven months, I knew I was ready. But when I arrived at our local park I wasn’t so sure. But ready or not, here the race came.
Summer is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited!Â I really don’t think I have a “favorite” season, but I definitely have my favorite parts about each season.Â As for summer, I love sitting in the sun, eating ice cream with friends, and of course vacation! My parents decided this year that for Christmas they wanted to give us a family vacation up in the sticks of northern Wisconsin!
Hi friends! Ã‚Â In case you missed it, spring has officially arrived in Iowa and I couldn’t be more excited! Ã‚Â I think this season will continue to blow my mind because out of what looks like a dead tree, new life literally bursts out in the form of buds. Ã‚Â Seriously, unbelievable right?

Today, I would consider myself somewhat of the adventurous type. Ã‚Â But as a freshly graduated high school student, I was pretty shy and wet behind the ears as my grandparents would say. Ã‚Â I was also SUPER attached to my family and so to head right off to photography school which was a WHOLE four hours away, I wasn’t sure I was ready. Ã‚Â
I don’t know about you, but I LOVE to watch “behind the scenes” shows. Ã‚Â To see how a tootsie pop becomes a tootsie pop can fascinate me. Ã‚Â
Ok so you know how there are verses in the Bible that when you read them, they just roll off your tongue so nice and sound so beautiful. Ã‚Â But in all reality to live out what they mean is just plain hard. Ã‚Â
