new life

i knew moving home would be hard. but i honestly didn’t think i would love it this much. i have an amazing job that i love, i live with great parents who love me so well and are patient with me, and im meeting sweet and fun new friends. god is so good and faithful in how he has put me back in s.c. but i will make a list of a few things that i miss from tn. and here they go and they are in no particular order……

being loved they way they loved me..

14 girls that stole my heart 4 years ago

ill stop here for right now. 🙂

landyn and lennox

i am so in love with these two girls. i have babysat them for the past year and this past weekend had to say goodbye to them…. thankfully not forever but i wont be babysitting them anymore… they are SO beautiful and such sweet girls, i am going to miss seeing them everyday and watching them grow up. their parents carey and andrika are simply amazing too. they have such a sweet and loving marriage that it makes me so excited about meeting the man i am going to marry and fall in love. the way that they love eachother and their beautiful girls is so amazing, encouraging, and awesome. i just can’t get over it. landyn is a little over 2 1/2 years old and lennox just turned 1 in july. i love you carey, andrika, lennox and landyn. you guys really do mean the world to me… and andrika.. my eyes are still swollen 😦



new chapter…

so these past two weeks have been an emotional roller coaster to say the least. i have had to make decisions that i wasn’t ready to make yet and really “grow up” and make “big girl” decisions. in the matter of a week i got a “big girl job” and packed up the rest of my life in knoxville, tn and have moved home to s.c. its definately a bittersweet event but i know that with all my heart this is where i am suppose to be and God has amazing things planned for me. i am so excited about my amazing new job and the exciting things that will come along with it, but am finding it so hard to swallow the fact that i wont be babysitting 3 kids that i absolutely adore, be there for some of my young life girls experience their first week of college in knoxville and most of all be with girls that i have spent the past 5 years living with, growing up with and becoming young ladies with. i know that these friendships will never go away and that they will be girls that will stand next to me on my wedding day but its hard to think that i wont be around the corner from their houses. its been so much fun these past 5 years in knoxville and would not have gone anywhere else to share my college experience. it was a fun run ktown…..

here are some pictures from my last weekend in town… i love you guys!

it’s an endless kind of love…

they make me laugh. they make me cry. they frustrate me. they bring the best joy into my life. they worry me. they make me proud. but most of all its an endless kind of love. a love that wont ever stop no matter what they do, what happens to them, if they never talk to me ever again, if they hate me… anything.

the past 4 years i have invested my heart and life into not only a little town in knoxville, tn called farragut community but also into a group of high school girls that i adore. we have been to a handful of camps together, lunches in farragut cafeteria, numerous amounts of young life clubs, campaigners at different locations, sporting events, dances, beach trips, endless amounts of meals and ice cream and birthday parties. i have had the chance to see them go from bratty (yes i can say that because i love them 🙂 ) high school freshman to young ladies. in between their freshman and senior year they showed me how to love unconditionally along with other life lessons. ive seen them grieve the loss of friends and the hardest of them all parents. ive seen them try to figure out who they really are and struggle with that. i’ve seen them shed tears over “stupid boys” :). friends. school and sports. they’ve gotten mad at me, frustrated at me and annoyed with me. but they never gave up on me. they are girls that thought that they could bring up things that they have done and thought i would turn my back on them because of their “mistakes”.. but i’ve done the same thing. these girls mean more to me then they could ever imagine. if you want to see a one of a kind smile or see my heart almost jump out of my chest.. ask me about them. they are girls that are sometimes hard to love but in no way shape or form could you ever pay me or ask me to stop talking to them. i love them. i’m over protective of them, i cry for and over them, i laugh over the hilarious text messages or phone calls they give me, they are patient with me when i have really bad ADD moments in the middle of prayers or campaigners :). they are just my life. they are all heading off to college in a few short days (oh lord i think i just threw up) and i never thought starting this journey with them that i would be so upset but so proud.

girls.. i love yall. thank you for letting me love on yall the past four years. thank you for letting me tell you about jesus and his love for you. you girls mean the world to me and im never going to stop loving you and praying for you. i hope yall enjoy this slideshow as much as i do. and thank you for 4 fun and amazing years…

ps its kind of long so be prepared…
