Chapter 29

And just like that…..
I am another year older.
Highlights of 28:
~a few Kansas City trips
~got divorced
~took a little trip to Nashville
~went to Disney World 
~signed with 2 new agencies
~started an apprenticeship
~moved 4 times
~sold/threw away over half my possessions
~went to San Francisco
~fell in love
~went with my love to NY for the weekend
~started a style blog
…just to name a few.
It has been a VERY busy year. The LORD has been doing amazing things and has proven Himself faithful over and over again. I feel like the first part of 28, the Lord was showing me that HE was faithful and gracious. As I enter into the next chapter, the Lord is in the process of showing me that HE is a Redeemer. I love what the LORD has done in this past year and I cannot wait to see what HE has in store for this next year. I am looking forward to:
~another trip to San Fran
~hanging out with Bailey
~trip with my love to Idaho
~Kansas City for Thanksgiving
~a surprise trip overseas with my love
~a few important weddings
~a big move
~lots and lots of adventures.
Special thanks to my dad for his contribution and to my mom for birthing me 🙂

It’s a wonderful life.

Where do I begin…
Read this first: One year ago
Life is unreal. 
 Like, I honestly don’t believe what is happening. 
If you know anything about me, then it is either that I hate kites or that I talk about life in terms of story. 
A few years ago, I handed over the pen, that I was using to write my own story, to the LORD. 
Since that moment, life has never been the same. 
Life got really “terrible” for a few years. I put terrible in quotes because what seemed to be terrible was actually the greatest thing that ever happened to my story. 
Failing out of school and getting divorce was not fun by any means but it was exactly what my character needed to go through in order to get where I am today. 
I thanked the Lord then, knowing that the storm would pass. 
And it has.
My life looks nothing like anything I could have written. 
It is a thousand times better and a million times harder. 
It is too WONDERFUL for me. 
I am entering into a new story with new characters & new adventures. 
I am overwhelmed with JOY.
I beg you, if you trying to write your own story, to hand over the pen to the Author who wrote the world and everything in it. 
Become a character in HIS story.
Endure the hard times.
Have crazy stupid faith that HE knows what HE is doing. 
Then, get lost in an epic story.
What kind of story are you living?
