Today is the big day!

To My Sister On Her Wedding Day.
Grace's Camera Roll

I really cannot believe this day is here. I will never forget the day you called me to tell me that you were engaged. I was on the bus ride home from dance team regionals my Junior year of high school (which feels like a lifetime ago). We just placed in both routines to advance to state, and I couldn't imagine that the day could get any better; but it did. You texted me and said, "Hey, can I call you?" Typically, when someone says that, it's either something serious, or too important to text. So, answering the phone apprehensively, I said, "hello", and all you said was, "IM ENGAGED!" The cherry on top to what was an exciting chapter to come in your life.

When you said you were thinking of having the wedding in the summer of 2019, I remember thinking, "I'm going to be a sophomore in college when that happens .." Being a junior in high school at the time, I really never thought this day would come. BUT it has come. And I cannot begin to express the love and joy that I am feeling. Thinking of you walking down that aisle towards the man of your dreams and your forever, makes me so honored to be there, right by your side, just like I am every other day, but especially today.

I wanted to say a few things to you on your special day, that I know you already know, but wanted to put it into words.

I wanted to tell you how proud I am of you. Even being younger than you, I am still proud of the person you are, and the person you are still becoming. Although we are different in many ways, those differences that we have are of the many things I am most fond of about you. Your outgoing personality makes me want to be more outgoing, your sense of adventure and curiosity about life, helps me realize to not sweat the small stuff. Your strengths are some of my weaknesses, and my strengths are some of your weaknesses, and that is what I love most about us.

I wanted to say thank you for always being there for me. Weather it was motivating me to push myself more in dance, being there for me to vent or let out all of my feelings, or even just being there to talk about my day or something funny that happened. I know you will always be there for me no matter the day, and I cannot thank you enough for that.

Lastly, I obviously want to say I love you. I love that we are fortunate enough to have each other in our lives, I love that we can be complete idiots, but also talk about the hard times. I love that we can be real and honest with each other, I love that you are my sister, nonbiological or not. I love this relationship- that no matter if you were away at college, away in Vietnam, or now away in Florida, our bond will never break, because friends are forever, but family is infinite.

I am so thankful for you, and so thankful that God blessed us with each other. Cheers to this special day, and cheers to you and the man that will soon be your forever.


Your maid of honor, sister, and best friend.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
