change is love

there something about long drives when the leaves are changing colours. its left me with a sense of contentment. i like october.

i've been drinking my coffee black. its been much needed on road trips these past few weekends. my sister and i are headed back up to washington one last time on monday. our last wedding of the year. we are skipping classes and taking a day for two of our best friends. i am reminded constantly that this season brought something more than a scenery change. joy, love, and friends.

here's to fall.

I get discouraged when women have a mentality that we have to somehow act less strong than God designed us to be to find a man. At the same time, I think others of us, in our fears of being perceived as weak, overcompensate. We try to act so strong that we disregard what I now believe is a God-given protective gene in good men that will cause them to be in a constant state of alert when they are in what they believe to be a position of responsibility. -joy eggerichs

honestly, i expected less of today.

i had an advising appointment regarding next term.
we talked about missions instead.

and it was a total answer to prayer.

i know, they are darling. i thought so too.

sometime here soon, you will hear about a project i am dong for these dears.
they live in Jinja Uganda at the Redeemer House Orphanage.
i don't know them, but i love them.
that's all i'll tell you for now.

i say goodbye you say hello

mid october brought the rain. i feel happy about the season, about the change it's bringing to my little town.
so, i bid thee the most joyful October ever.
don't blink, you might miss the best part.

My sister and her husband bought me a Holga Toy Camera for my nineteenth birthday. i've had it since september and i'm going to develop my first roll this weekend. my first roll of film. it feels like i'm getting married or something.

cheers to firsts!
