God's Timing

I've realized more lately than ever before that God's timing is just so perfect. There have been times in the last few months that I think why are these things happening? Why am I so frustrated in this place that I'm in? Why am I making the changes that I am making in my life? And this past week it's all starting to become so clear to me! I can't talk much about this exciting adventure that my life is suddenly going on but I just know that I am so so pumped to see what God has in store for me over the next few weeks. I know that it's going to be AMAZING!!!!!!!!! If you think about it just say a little prayer for me! THANKS

God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits,
to the woman who diligently seeks.
It's a good thing to quietly hope,
quietly hope for help from God.
It's a good thing when you're young
to stick it out through the hard times.

The Book of Awesome and Post Secret

Years ago I started reading the Post Secret website! I read it every Monday morning. I think it's updated on Sundays. For those of you that don't know what it is, it's a website started by Frank Warren a few years ago. People mail him their secrets, he picks out the best ones and updates the site every week with 25-30 new secrets. There are also books compiled of all of these secrets. (I own 2 of them.) I can't describe what it is about reading it but I just love them! I think it's interesting to see what peoples secrets are and sometimes agree with them! Sometimes they're awkward to read at work for fear someone is going to walk in on a secret that is a little too explicit for work! :) Sometimes you just feel connected, or sad for people. It's like a way of "helping" people from across the world. People like knowing there is someone that feels the same way they do!

My next site I am loving right now is 1000 Awesome things! I wish I had known about this one longer. It's already gone through 500 awesome things and I've yet to catch up! I read the days entry and I'm like YES! I LOVE when that happens! It definitely helps you appreciate the little things in life. The book just came out and I've just ordered it on Amazon. CANNOT wait to get it in the mail! :) I'm a pretty open book and don't have many secrets but these are things I think are awesome.

Little Love Of My Life

The weekend went by WAY too fast! I worked most of it but the part I wasn't working I spent Celebrating Mason Clay's 2nd birthday!!

I don't feel like he's old enough to be 2!! He's supposed to still be a little baby!!! I love him so much and enjoying loving on him! Crystal is a great mom and put together a great, Windy (not her fault) party!! :)

Here are some pictures from the festivities!

What I love about Spring!

1. The crisp morning air.
2. All of the beautiful flowers blooming.
3. The way my house looks with the sun shining on it in the morning.
4. The smell of fresh cut grass.
5. The warm sun on my face.
6. Driving with my windows down.
7. Having the ability to wear almost anything
8. Walks in the evenings.
9. Birds chirping outside in the morning.
10. Reading a book on my porch swing.

Memory Lane

I'm not sure how to really start this entry except to say that I just have so much to be thankful for. The thought behind this came to me the other day when I was trying to find an old picture. I started scrolling through Facebook and began reminiscing old memories! So, below I have just included a few of my most favorite memories while I was in college. I am beyond blessed to have been a part of so many wonderful things and am even more blessed by the friendships I have made. I hope you find this as wonderful and entertaining as I did. :)
