3 Mindful Ways to Soak in Important Moments + Vacation Reflection & Pictures

To my surprise (and my liking) 2018 was full of fun travels and adventures. I visited Boston (a bucket-list item) over the summer with my mom, drove to Daytona, Florida with my dad in December, and took many joyful trips to the lake with my family.

I was fortunate to have been able to start 2019 off with more adventures! Just a few weeks after a friend and I returned from Mississippi, my mom, boyfriend, and I hopped on a plane to Destin, Florida.

While my boyfriend and I were off on our own little adventures, I made a point to make sure I was really soaking in the moment, to really feel like I was living, breathing, and enjoying life to the fullest wherever God placed me.

I AM Conference 2019: What I Learned About Faith, Friendship, & Traveling Solo

My 23rd birthday weekend was one full of fun, worship, and exploring. As I am finally able to sit in my home and relax, I am still in awe that I spent the weekend in Tupelo, Mississippi.

Krissi, a conference host, said during prayer over the crowd of anxious girls, “Thank you Jesus for getting these girls here tonight,” and being the only two women who drove from out of state to get here, I knew that somehow that one was for us.

Setting Yourself Up for Success: How to Make 2019 Your Freaking Year

2019 is three days away, how crazy is that to say out loud? At the end of every year, my life really starts to slow down. December was a super crazy month for me; I graduated college, I went on a short vacation, I finished an internship. I’m currently enjoying my last “winter break” until my new job begins.

I am not very fond of seasons of waiting, but after thinking about it long enough and praying about it, I realized that this is actually a huge blessing and an opportunity to spend time with friends and family, to reflect on this past year, as well as write down my aspirations for the new year. Setting yourself up for success can look different for everyone, but I know deep down, 2019 is your freaking year.
