Oh my, this year. It was self-changing. I can honestly say that I am not the same person I was 12 months ago. Honestly, I’m not the same person I was 6 months ago. I feel like a new person, growing daily in my walk with God and realizing how beautiful life is.
I feel like I have come so far and everything in the past has been such a learning experience. Here’s a recap of my life over the last year, including a million over-sized pictures!
The birth of Al’s Narratives! Have I really been blogging for a year? It doesn’t seem real! It has been such a blessing in my life, though.
After having pledged a “social club” (a.k.a sorority) the semester before, I finally got my Iota Chi jersey in. Oh buddy, I was excited!
I was in my first musical, Spring Sing, dancing on behalf of the uncoordinated everywhere. (We won!)
I welcomed a sweet new baby into our family. He was round (10 pounds) and perfect.
The fifth month of the year brought an end to my freshman year of college and the start of my love for running. Looking back, my packed up dorm room looks like a prison cell!
It was warm when I left on a jet plane with my best friend to the great state of Utah. Good gravy, I fell in love. Hard. The weather, the people, the mountains! That being said, I fully plan on moving to Utah when I graduate. Seriously.
The 1st Annual Girls Trip with my best friends! We went to Panama City Beach, Florida and it was an absolute blast. Beaching, clubbing (sober, of course), shopping, eating (because I have a weakness for seafood.) We created amazing memories.
My sophomore year of college began. It was probably the most amazing semester so far! Plus, I’m in a very nice dorm this year. No prison cells for me.
One of my very best friends moved to Idaho for school. It was a difficult goodbye.
With the cool weather brought my favorite month! It was filled with plenty of autumn activities- painting pumpkins, hay rides, and corn mazes.
I ran in my first 5k race! It was a good experience and I cannot wait to run in my first half-marathon! It was also the month I said au revoir to my teenage years!
My best friends and I celebrated our First Annual Secret Santa gift exchange! Kaylee also came home from Idaho for a week and it was great to see her face in real life and not just on Skype.
you were good to me.
