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:

My Top 5 Favorite Starbucks Drinks

Hey friends!

We had some friends come and visit last week and we went to Starbucks! It gave me the idea to share what my top 5 favorite Starbucks drinks are!

Let’s get started!

*google*

#5. Hot Caramel Cloud Macchiato:

I had this for the first time in November and it’s SO GOOD! It’s a good fall/winter drink!

*google*

#4. Hot Caramel Macchiato:

This is not much different from the Cloud Macchiato, just less foam! 

*google*

#3. Caramel Frappuccino:

This was my first love, just kidding. But I used to ADORE this drink. It was the only thing I ever ordered.

*google*

#2. Strawberry Acai Lemonade:

This SOOOO amazing! It’s delicious and so refreshing! It’s definitely a great summer drink 🤗

*google*

#1. Peach Green Tea Lemonade:

This is also so delicious! It’s a lot like the Strawberry Acai Lemonade! I sometimes get it without the cane sugar, it tastes about the same!

 

I highly recommend all those drinks! If you’ve never tried any of them, you definitely should!!! It’s fun to try new drinks every once in a while! 😄

The next week we had a business lunch for all of our businesses at Maggiano’s. It is SOOO delicious!

The next week we had a baby shower for my brother and sister in-law. I don’t have any pictures though 😢

On Christmas Eve we went out for a family lunch at a cute place called Hillside Restaurant. It was so yummy!

Then we went to a Christmas Eve service. Only got a couple pictures, but this is my favorite!

On Christmas day we opened presents and stockings and then just chilled for most of the day! We took a sisters pajamas picture!  🤩

Then something exciting happened that evening! My brother proposed to his girlfriend!!! AHHH! Another Denner wedding is happening this year! June 5th😱

So excited to have you as a sister Bekah!!
