Currently // June

READING · I started Women of the Word by Jen Wilkins a couple days ago. It's been very insightful so far. I've always struggled with digging into the Bible and I've read other books in the past, but this one is different. It's actually quite helpful.

WATCHING · My mom and I recently started watching Grey's Anatomy. I tried watching it by myself in the past, but wasn't feeling it at the time. After searching through what felt like every single show that Netflix had to offer, I settled on giving it another shot. I'm glad I did, as it is a really good show and there's tons of episodes which is always a plus!

LISTENING TO · Since hearing about the sudden and tragic death of one of my all-time favorite composers/conductors, James Horner, I've been replaying his songs. He is best known for his film scores such as the ones he composed for Titanic, Braveheart and Avatar, all of which are beautiful pieces of music. However, the one I will cherish over all the others is from Casper (filmed in 1995). It's called Casper's Lullaby and I've loved it since I was a little girl. I even learned it on the piano many years ago and the fact that I've forgotten how to play it since truly saddens me. Hopefully it'll come back to me.

DISCOVERING · That things aren't always as they seem. I know that's a pretty vague analysis, but it's been ringing true in a few different areas of my life lately. Be it good or bad. This quote sums it up perfectly ❭ "Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden." — Phaedrus

PLANNING · Our family vacation in a few months. It was a toss up between staying at the beach again like we did last year, or heading to Orlando like we did the year before that. Although we love staying at Disney resorts and visiting their theme parks, their prices have become outrageous. We did end up picking Orlando, however we will be staying at Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort. As soon as I looked up info about this place, I knew we had to stay there. It's a retro-themed hotel and it's only been opened for about a year. We're planning to visit Universal Studios while we're there too. I can't wait!

CRAVING · Sushi. No particular roll. I'd take almost anything doused in spicy mayo, ginger + soy sauce at the moment. Unless, of course, it's raw. That would just make me yack, haha. Tried it once and it's not for me.

WISHING · That I would have been less careless with my education when I was younger since I'm having to deal with the consequences now. Studying for a GED test at 25 totally sucks. And it's making me feel like a failure on so many levels.

FEELING · Anxious + a little frustrated at myself (because of what I mentioned above). But, I'll get over it. I always do.

PRAYING FOR · Wisdom and discernment. Also for God to reveal more of Himself to me as I try to draw closer to Him.


  1. We have planned a trip to Disney in 2017, and I'm so anxious for it to arrive! Although I don't want to wish so many days away!

    You are not a failure, by the way! You'll get thru this!

    1. Disney is seriously the BEST. I just wish they were a little more affordable. Their rates seem to go up each year. And thanks for the encouragement, girl! I appreciate it :)
