Long Time, No Blog

Well guys, it's been almost three months since my last post.  SO much has happened since December that it's not even funny.  I celebrated Christmas, started another semester of school, met new friends and started new relationships, have two friends that have gotten engaged and even turned another year older!  There is definitely a lot to share with all of you.

However, when I think back over the past few months and everything that has happened, I am absolutely overwhelmed.  I can't even begin to show all of the pictures and tell you all of the stories.  It's simply not possible.  To tell you the truth, I have decided to start to simplify my life.  I am in the process of cleaning so much the little things in my life up.  My life is consumed with trying to connect and stay in touch with so many people that I feel like some of my relationships are extremely shallow.  With yesterday being the start of Lent, I have decided to give a few things up.  One of the main things is blogging!  And yes, I can here you saying, "Well it's not like she was blogging much anyway!!" I know, I know.  But it's constantly hanging over my head and it makes me antsy when I can't get it all done.   

This weekend marks the one year mark of me living on my own!  This has been such a fun year- but it's been a year of learning what works for me and how I need to manage my time, money and my efforts.  I have found a love for cooking and baking (some of it's good and some of it's not!!)  But I enjoy it nonetheless.  I am spending more time in God's Word and in prayer and praying that God will reveal more and more to me about the rest of my life!  How exciting is that?!  School continues to consume a great deal of my time as I am taking a few week long course workshops and taking class in New Orleans some.  There are plenty of things in my life that I can't give up.  I can't give up grocery shopping, or laundry, or cleaning house but what I can do is simplify.  That's been the prayer of mine for awhile now- "God, show me how to simplify!  God, show me how to get rid of the junk in my life so that I can focus on who and what really matters!"  He is teaching me new things every single day and I feel like I need to continue to get things out of my life so that His place becomes greater everyday!  So here's to the first step!!  I hope that 2012 has treated each of you well so far and that you will continue to be blessed through the remainder of the year.
