In the past two months almost everything that I'm used to has changed. It has been a whirlwind, and I am just now getting to the point where I can begin to tell you a small part of what has happened in my life during these last months.

    High school seems so distant, but at the same time it feels like just yesterday I was sitting in class dreaming about the new adventures I would go on, new people I would meet, and new cultures I would get to experience. Now, 6 months later here I am: adventuring, meeting some of the best people, and being immersed in the southern culture.  

   In this time I have had some of my highest highs and lowest lows. I have stood on the tops of mountains, looked at stars, and traveled to some beautiful cities with the best of people. But I have also shed more tears than I even thought was possible. Trying to figure out life is not as simple as I would hope. I still have insecurities still plague me each day and feelings of loneliness are not as distant as I would like. But through it all, Jesus is here and he is still sovereign.  He is teaching me SO much right now and I am so excited to see Him working in my life and answering prayers every single day. 

    This season of life is bringing something new every day, and I am so thankful for it. I am learning to be content and embrace the now while working hard to prepare for the future. I am so thankful for all the support and encouragement you have given me. <3 

     These are some of my most favorite photos from my adventures here. But remember, these photos are only a small snapshot of my life, and not my whole life. In between these moments there are tears and laughter, confusion and successes, and a whole other array of feelings and events.
