Until Next Year, Summer

Summer just ended and Fall is beginning- thanks, Summer 2018, for all of the great memories.

Fall is probably my absolute favorite season. I love seeing the leaves change colors and hearing them crunch beneath my feet as they fall to the ground, but it's always bittersweet to tell summer goodbye for a year.

As you reflect on your summer what memories come to mind?

Mine was full of change.

I celebrated one year of marriage, moved to a new state into my first home with my husband, and began "adulting" as we call it nowadays. By the way- enjoy the season of life you're currently in because it flies by.

Summer gave me beautiful days on this stunning new lake I moved to.

Jesus showed my husband and I why we moved six hours from home where we knew nobody. Though I know He is always faithful, I spent the first few weeks struggling to trust that.

I spent most of my nights awake until the late hours of night unable to sleep due to constant panic attacks, but through it I learned that it's okay to seek help and that above everything He remains and always will.

I traveled. Boy, did I travel.

I took 8 plane rides (total) and visited two new cities in states that I couldn't have ever imagined myself visiting.

I took a trip to my mom's hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where I was blown away by the history that encompasses the entire city. I stood right in the center of the city looking up at what seemed like endless heights of buildings. I bonded with my mom as she joyfully took me around the city showing me all of the famous landmarks that she used to play around as a child. I be took more pictures that I can even probably count, but I know i'll always look back and be flooded with the joy that that trip bought.

I visited Missoula, Montana, a state that I probably couldn't locate on a map before then. Okay, okay that's exaggerating a little bit, but for real though I couldn't pass the opportunity down once it was presented even though it mean two weeks away from my husband and four fur babies. I was surrounded by the most stunning mountains and couldn't imagine living there full time.

I made friends.

I made friends that I know will be here for a lifetime. I've never had such strong, beautiful, and encouraging Godly women I could consider my friends. They understand they're not perfect, but strive to live a life like Christ and love just as He loved.

This was my Summer of 2018, what's yours?
