Time Flies

    August? Already? Where did summer go? Summer is my favorite season. I love everything about it- warm nights, lightning bugs, fruity drinks, and swimming in clear water. Too bad it seems to be the shortest season around here..
   This year has brought many changes and new experiences. From traveling 3 different countries to losing a loved one. I'm so thankful for the lessons I have learned and how much I have grown as a person. Things may not always go as we want or expect them too, but we must remember, God has a plan for us.

It's true that you tell the people you love everyday that you love them. This is especially hard for me because I'm not a very affectionate person.. but atleast make sure they know how much they mean to you! Spend as much time as you can with those close to you. Talk about their childhood, experiences, dreams, life lessons, ask them questions! I will never forget the things my mawmaw taught me & how she shaped who I am as a person. I'm so thankful I got to spend the time with her I did! I'm most definitely the most like her out of her grandchildren.. we had a special bond. So many memories that mean SOOO much to me... now I know she is in a better place, with all the people she always talked about, and of course, with God. 

Those memories will forever reside in my heart. I was blessed to have such a extremely loving, classy, thoughtful grandmother! RIP mawmaw Lynn. <3

Wake up everyday and consciously make an effort to make it the best day you can. When things get tough, always keep hope, because without it, we have nothing.

  7. Time does seem to fly whenever you are having fun! Why do people think that so many people complain about Summer being so short? Because a lot of people tend to have the most fun during the warmer months! And these vacation pictures look beautiful!

    And thank you so much for commenting on my blog! I appreciate the compliment!

  11. Aw my prayers go out to you and your family. :(

    It's really hard for me personally to see God's plan in my life when things don't go the way I want it to, but like your post, He's always working. Even when we don't feel, see or hear Him. Thanks for the inspiring post.
