Two weekends ago, I had the amazing privilege to serve with my home church, Salem Church of God, on Love Does Sunday. When I first started this business a year ago, I knew that i wanted it to serve as a platform for ministry, whether that was through interacting with my clients, sharing my heart on my blog…

Earlier in the summer, John and I took an afternoon to visit the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio. We went last year around this time and it was so much fun.

Last week, John and I took a spontaneous trip to Washington DC! We rented two rooms in the most adorable Airbnb house, rode the metro practically every (except when we took an uber!) and walked until we couldn’t feel our feet. The purpose of the trip was to ultimately fix some visa problems that John was…

This past week, my friends and I took a road trip to Florida for our senior year spring break. Our condo was steps away from the beach and we had a STUNNING ocean view from our living room and kitchen. I’m talking walls of windows, friends! Even when we were inside recovering from the sun, it still felt like we were on the beach. We relaxed on the beach, made cookies (lots of cookies), cooked dinners and played a ton of cards. We had so much fun together and…

For my last spring break, some sorority sisters and I headed down to St. Petersburg, Florida for a week in the sunshine state with friends, laughter and of course, floppy hats! If you haven’t caught on already, I have a mild obsession with floppy hats… but I was able to convince my friends to jump on the trend so we all enjoyed them throughout the week. 🙂 We had an ocean view condo…
