4th of July Pictures + Siblings

Hey friends!

We took some pictures on 4th of July! We had so much fun hanging out, playing games, eating and talking! Time with the family is always so amazing and fun!

Most of the siblings! My brother Tim and his wife Faith were the only ones who couldn’t come 😭 We missed them a lot. These siblings of mine are amazing. We have loads of fun together ❤️

I wish you all could meet them ❤️

The girls and momma!

Just the girlsss!

90% of the pictures I’m in, I’m making a weird face, just sayin’.

My absolutely wonderful and beautiful momma!

My bestest friend EVER! She’s getting married in 83 DAYYYSSS! I’m so excited to be her Maid of Honor! First time being a Maid of Honor and I am beyond excited!

My sister in-law Lauren! She and Phil (my brother) celebrated their second wedding anniversary last month! AHHH,  SO CRAZY! 

My Beks babe! She and Matt (my brother) celebrated their 1 month anniversary on Sunday! Man how the time flies by. 😱 

GABI! She’s the cutest and is growing up WAY to quick 😭 She’s 13 going on 30. HAHA! Also, she started a blog and you should totally go check it out. She’s so excited to have started it and would love for you to follow along with her!  Check it out here.

This adorable babe gets two pictures because why not?? She’s SO CUTE. It makes me so happy and sad that she’s growing up. I miss the days when I got to hold her as a baby, but I so enjoy having conversations with her and hanging out with her. She’s quite a character and is always makin’ us laugh and always is so silly.

Hope you enjoyed seeing pictures and hearing me talk about my siblings, hehe.

How was your 4th of July? What did you do? What’s your favorite holiday and favorite thing about it? I’d love to hear from you in the comments!

Being Single As a Teen Girl

Hey friends!

Today I thought I’d talk about being single as a teen girl.

Most girls our age are either in a relationship or would really like to be in one.

I am currently not in a relationship and I am totally okay with that! But if I had talked with you about this in December/January, I would not tell you that. 

Over the past few months I came to realize that I am NOT ready for a relationship. 

See, the way I look at it is that I’m not ready to get married anytime soon. So why start a relationship this young? And I know that lots of people have different opinions.

But I don’t want to get myself into a relationship when I’m still in high school and trying to figure out what I’m going to do with my life.

Not gonna lie. Every once in a while I will get the lonely feeling that I want to be in a relationship. Because it is nice to have someone there to talk to all the time and know you have someone. But, that shouldn’t be your reason for dating. You should be dating the person because they could be a possible spouse.

Whenever I get that feeling and I know I’m not ready, I go to the Lord and ask him to take the feeling away. And it goes away and I’m totally fine!

Another thing, I was in a “relationship” at the beginning of the year and I realized I wasn’t ready and also that I wasn’t interested anymore. That’s something important we girls need to realize. 

If we can tell we aren’t interested anymore, we can’t keep it going just because you don’t want to hurt his feelings. If you keep it going, you’re going to lead the guy on and he’ll get even more hurt.

The media makes it seem like we should all have a boyfriend. But you shouldn’t start dating till you know you’re ready, which is God’s timing. 

If you are in the single stage and are really wanting a boyfriend, I would encourage you to really take this time to spend more time with your family and with God. He wants you to come to him and wants to comfort you. Because he’s in control. He’s not wringing his hands because you don’t have a boyfriend. It is all HIS timing. He’s not worried.

Well, I hope that helps you if you are in the same stage as I am.

Are there any other things you’d like me to write about? Anything you’d like to hear about? Let me know in the comments!

The Westing Game | My Favorite Book

Hey friends!

The Westing Game is my all time favorite book! It’s a mystery and I absolutely LOVE it!

Plot Summary

Sunset Towers is a new apartment building on Lake Michigan, north of Milwaukee and just down the shore from the mansion owned by reclusive self-made millionaire Samuel W. Westing. (Despite its name, Sunset Towers faces east – into the sunrise.) Sam Westing was a wealthy businessman who made his fortune in paper products. He was very patriotic and never smoked, drank, or gambled.

As the story opens, Barney Northrup is selling apartments to a carefully selected group of tenants. He claims that chess is not allowed in the building. After Sam Westing dies, at the beginning of the book, it emerges that most of the tenants are named as heirs in Westing’s will. The will is structured like a puzzle, with the 16 heirs challenged to find the solution. Each of the eight pairs, assigned seemingly at random, is given $10,000 cash and a different set of baffling clues. The pair that solves the mystery will inherit Westing’s entire $200 million fortune and control of his company.

 

The first time I read it, it was a little confusing. But once I read it the second time, oh wow! I knew it was my favorite book! I’ve read the book multiple times and it never gets old! 

 

What are your favorite kind of books? What’s your favorite book? Let me know in the comments, love hearing from you!

How I Edit My Photos

Hey friends!

I’ve gotten questions about how I edit my photos, so now it’s time for me to share!!!

I got a new preset a couple months ago and I LOVE IT! It’s totally my style and goes with all my photos! Here is the link if you’d like to check it out. 

It’s a Lightroom preset and all I have to do is paste it on my photos. Sometimes I have to fix some of the lighting for it to look how I want it but it’s pretty easy!

Here are a before and after photo:
