Today I have two very special events to share about two very special people.
Incase you were unaware, like me, today is the day that most people who were born on a leap year celebrate his or her birthdays. I am not good with math at all, but I do really feel for those born on this day. Today, one of my great friends, April was born, and technically today she is 4 and 3/4 years old. Isn't that crazy? But no matter what, the import thing to learn about this is how thankful I am for April. I remember coming TCU for Orientation, very unsure about a lot of things. In my orientation group I saw this girl who was pretty and just an all around great person. I didn't really know her, but just meeting her, I knew I wanted to be her friend. When April asked me if I was wearing vineyard vines, I knew it was going to be the start of a great friendship. Fast forward almost a year later and I can't imagine freshman year without my friend. We learned about every play on Broadway together, she taught me how to properly avoid pedestrians, she opened her room to me when every I needed it, she was a shoulder to cry, she is my partner in crime, she is the reason I love Chi O, she is sassy, but aren't we all, and she is such a great blessing to me. She is another person who I feel like God placed in my life for a reason. We may not see each other as much this semester, but I am happy knowing she will always be my friend. Thanks for everything April! I would not have made it through first semester without you. I am glad we share the same family and I am glad you are my friend/sister. I can't wait for more memories and more you telling me how to drive. Happy Day of Birth friend!
Second, today was Miss OBU at Ouachita Baptist University. I had ever intention of being there, but when the snow was predicted, I knew that was not going to happen. I was honestly so sad because
1. I kind of miss the pageant scene and all the pageant people.
2. Someone very special to me gave her crown tonight
I remember around year ago when I was anxiously waiting to hear that Abby Lindsey had been crowned the new Miss OBU! When I heard, I was SO excited. I knew it was something that Abby so badly wanted and I was so glad she could begin her journey as Miss OBU. I can't believe hoe quickly the year has come, so I know she must be in shock. I want to thank you Abby for allowing me to support and love you. I have loved seeing your journey as Miss OBU, more than you know. I hated so badly that I could not be there tonight, but I did hear the farewell and I loved it. My favorite part was about the "almonds" because that is literally all you ate in Disney last spring. Made me LOL. I also heard I made the slide show.. you the real MVP for that. It will be hard seeing you without the crown and sash for a while, but I know you are taking the time to do what is right for you. I can't wait to still be on your fan team, if and when the time is right. From car rides stuck in traffic looking for goods you could eat at gas stations 1 week before Miss Arkansas to your FAB red dress at state... I have loved everything about you, Miss OBU. Thanks for always supporting me and loving me, even though I didn't end up at OBU. That makes me extra thankful for you! I could write about how special you are for days, but we both know we don't have time for that. Just know I am thankful for you long after the crown is put up. Thanks loving me, singing like an angel, and being my friend. I love you my Miss OBU!
Obviously today I am thankful for these two special people and the impact they have on me. God, thank you.

This morning I woke up to a very white view, everyones favorite text and lots of excitement. This week has been a pretty interesting week
Tuesday- Cold and Ice/Snow
Friday- lots and lots of snow
I can't really complain because after the ice on Monday, I really was wishing for some REAL snow. The only problem with this was when I wished for this REAL snow I wasn't really wishing for snow on Friday. I was super excited because my friend Michelle was going to take my back home, to Austin, TX, with her and I was so excited. Living in Texas you always hear people talk about certain things and one of those things is Austin. It is apparently such a cool place and I was really looking forward to Pre-Spring Break trip. The excitement of this left this morning when I looked out my window, but it was quickly replaced by the excitement of a snow day.
Today, it was basically snowed all day and it is still snowing. The campus is beautiful, which means Insta has been blown up with pics, but I don't really care because I could look at the snow for days. I got lots of greats pics and loved every bit of today. My friend patrick lives in the commons, which is the center of campus, and with this being the center, it was hopping today! After I had my fun in the snow I spent the whole day people watching, one of my favorite activities. It was so nice to just sit, watch and enjoy the snow. In doing this though, I did realize that I missed being around a fire place with my cool parents basically waiting on me. Yeah, I guess that is called growing up. Anyways, while I was people watching, I three interesting things.
1. The typical slips and falls, which are hilarious.
2. A girl dressed as a tiger, crawling on all fours in the snow. Best thing I saw all day.
3. A girl, who was obvious freezing, in a tutu taking some type of dance pictures.
People, including myself, will do anything for a good photo.
After all the people watching my friend and I decided to have a movie night. We watched "Gone Girl". Totally crazy, but totally a great movie. I want to read the book now!!
Like I said this movie was crazy and we kind of long so we decided to take a small break. It was a good thing I decided to text my dad and get the ingredients to this famous "Snow Ice Cream".
Okay so very weird not having him make it, but I made it in his place and my friends really liked it. So yes, Dad I have learned something from you... I know you are excited. Thank you!
Now, I am looking back on the great day and I just realized that today was my first Texas Snow!!! I mean I have had snow in Arkansas and Colorado, but never before in Texas. So today was the perfect first snow! So even though my original plans didn't work out, I feel like God gave me something just as great! Remember that next time things don't go as planned... Something better is always down the road. That I am WAY thankful for!!

I am a firm believer that God puts us in a certain place, at a certain time, for a certain reason.
Throwback to January 2014:
If you didn't know I am a frequent pageant goer. Half because I am forced to and half because I like supporting my friends. So here I am in El Dorado, Arkansas, semi board because I was at my 100008 pageant and after an hour or so into the thing my ADD kicks in hard core. I am sitting there nervously awaiting the end, which was probably another hour or so away, but I get nervous early. Anyways, they start the evening gown for the Miss contestants (older ladies) and my mind has kind of drifted off into another land.
Keep in mind during this time the pressure to choose a college was heavily weighing on me.
"Your next contestant... blah blah blah... she... blah blah blah... and will attending Texas Christian University this fall as a freshman." In this moment I was pulled back down to reality because that is where I was looking at. it was one of my top choices. I thought, "Someone else is looking into TCU? In Arkansas?" TCU does not have a large population from the natural state. I was shocked!
Long story short, about a month later, after I made the decision to attend TCU I knew I had to meet this girl. Our mutual fiends basically introduced us and shortly after she because such a special friend to me. Houston, I cannot tell you how thankful I am that I was at that pageant because if not I am not sure I would be a TCU. I don't know if I ever told you, but when I made my decision, knowing that I could possibly make a friend from "home" before going to school gave me a lot of comfort and I didn't even know you! You have been so nice to me from the first time I meet you and I am beyond grateful that God crossed our paths. I have so enjoyed supporting and cheering you on a various pageants and of course, Miss Arkansas. It was been such a joy in my life! YOU have been such a joy in my life. I also remember when you gave up your crown in August, right before we were to move to TCU, I was so nervous about a lot of things, especially classes. I was there talking with your Mom about everything. When she and I realized we would have a class together the first semester of college, I thanked God again because he was comforting me through you. I am again so so thankful to have you as a friend. Finally, the first weekend I moved to TCU we had the thing called "Frogs First." I don't like to look back on that because I remember being so scared and so missing home. What I do like to remember about that weekend is the ceremony. There I stood in a sea of freshman, scared to death. Who would Is it by? Where are the few people I know? And then there you were. Right in front of my eyes. We ended up sitting by each other that right and again, you brought me so much comfort. Wow thinking about how God placed you in my life and looking back and seeing why, almost makes me want to cry. I am SO blessed by you, Houston. I cannot think of another smart loving, all around good person like you. If it weren't for you, who knows if I'd even be a honored frog with you today! We may not be best friends, or hangout all the time, but you will always be a special friend to me for this reason. I am thankful for you sweet friend!
Look and learn because the people in your life are there for a reason... don't forget to be thankful for that! Happy Birthday dear Houston... thanks for being a wonderful friend!
Also, can we please get back in the pageant ring? I am ready whenever you are!!

Today in class we have a conversation about how technology influences our life and our generation. I am fully aware that I have an unhealthy relationship with my phone and social media, but I wold not be the same without it. In this generation it is a way of life and without it you probably would not fit in, sadly. After class, I looked at my phone and saw two things.
1. A missed called from my friend Leighton
2. A text from my friend Stephanie
These two things aren't uncommon, but having just talked about this topic... I found something to be thankful for.
Technology is tricky because it is so positive and negative at the same time! But today, I chose to ignore the negatives and focus on the positives because without it, I know my friendships would not be the same. I have not seen Stephanie or Leighton in nearly two months, but I feel like I have because I talk to them on a regular basis. Even if it is a little text here and there, it makes a difference. When I came to college I was so worried I was going to miss my friends terribly, some days I do, but technology helps fill that gap. It will never replace physically being with a person, but for many people it saves relationships. I mean think of families who are operated by what feels like a whole world, or a couple who is in a long distance relationship. If this pertains to you, then you know how thankful you are for this. This just so happens to be relevant today because we discussed it in class and then I had a 49 minute long conversation with Leighton, but I am thankful for technology and how it allows me to communicate most of my days. When I got to thinking about, I could not have lived back when there was no option for communication besides letters. Then I would have every reason to be worried.
It's small, but today it is what I am so thankful for!
Can we talk about all this snow that Stuttgart, AR has been getting? Can we also talk about how extremely jealous I am?
It is pretty weird that I am not there! Snow or no snow today has still been a pretty good day!
1. My test for Monday got moved to after Spring Break... PRAISE!!! Now, I will get to go on a little adventure this weekend... stay tuned!
2. My friend, Hannah Oliver, has decided to help out the ladies views on Southern and Well Dressed. Head over and check her out.. She is a true Southern Belle!
Stay thankful for all life offers!

Well I am currently doing two things:
A. Praying for a miracle because according to the weather app, it is supposed to snow tonight and tomorrow morning and I would really really like another snow day.. so yeah there's that.
B. Dreaming of being in NYC two weeks from today... I AM TOO READY... That place has a piece of my heart.
Anyways, yesterday an instagram friend, @missouriprepster, challenged me to share ten facts about myself on my blog. At first I was like "ahhhhh so cute, but I don't have time for that", but today, when I was trying to avoid stats homework, I decided I had time lol
1. I put full faith in God and his plan. I find complete joy in that. This makes me thankful everyday.
2. I have a very distinct Southern Accent that you will notice as soon as words flow from my mouth. It's cool.
3. Instagram is my favorite social media because I feel like it is the best way for others to see God in me.
4. I spend at least 3 hours of my day dreaming. I am a dreamer and because of this I refuse to believe that dreams don't come true. Most days I feel as if I am loving the dream therefore, dreams do come true.
5. I learned to tie a tie, then a bowtie. In the process I forgot how to tie a tie so now I literally have to wear a bowtie.
6. I may not have very many talents, but dressing well, blogging, loving God, loving others, and eating sweets are what i call my talents.
7. I collect pants(colored, patterned, etc.) I also really like edits (me photoshopped into a ridiculous picture.. makes me laugh... a lot)
8. I am not from a small town; I am blessed to be from a small town. The lessons, relationships, food, and love is better from there, especially Stuttgart, AR.
9. I struggle with jealousy. My pet peeve is when people (who know me) don't speak/act like they don't know me. I don't do rude.
10. One day God will use me to impact as many people as I am supposed to impact. 10 people on an island? The whole world? I am happy to do whatever he needs me to do... I love him and he loves me.
WOW. That was kind of hard considering I feel like am a book of information. Picking ten things was harder than I thought. These are fun, but at the same time the most important things to know about me. I like this little challenge because it really can tell you a lot about someone. I am not going to challenge anyone else, but I would encourage any of you to share ten facts about yourself because it really makes you think.
What are my priorities? Are they in the wrong place?
What do I like? What do I dislike?
You don't have to share them on social media, but even taking the time to write them down in a journal or even the notes section of your phone is beneficial. The added thing I would like to challenge you to do is read back over them and really try and be thankful. You would not be the same person if it weren't for those ten facts. God has blessed you in so many ways and to you, ten very important ways! How cool huh? I really enjoyed this and I am so thankful to my friend who challenged me to look at my life in this way.. Makes me extra thankful today!

Last night as I was with a group of friends anxiously waiting for the weather to start and for word about school being cancelled all of our phones went off, almost in sync, and many prayers had been answered... no school on Monday February 23rd! It was almost as if you could hear the excitement ring from every corner of campus. A snow day, I have learned, is different to many people all over the globe. TCU is very diverse and because of that everyone here has a different version of a "snow day" . Some say...
1. Snow days are very rare because it snows pretty much all winter.
2. What's a snow day? I have never had one before.
3. Snow Day= Ice Day
In Arkansas, snow days are few, but ice days are frequent. In all honestly, we never cared because it was a day off of school nonetheless. I guess Texas is the same because today we had our very first ice day. It was pretty funny to hear what everyone had to say about it. Some just set outside in awe because they had never seen anything like it and some thought it was stupid because to them... this was nothing. The common bound our campus shared today was that everyone was simply happy. Maybe you got another day to study for your tests? Maybe you got a day to relax and watch Netflix? Maybe you got a day to do the things you didn't do yesterday because you had a feeling we would have no class? Maybe the day didn't really effect you that much? Whatever happened, the majority of TCU was happy. People were all over the place taking pictures, sledding, pretending to be professional ice skaters, but really the options today seemed limitless. I woke up and went to iHop and then my friend Michelle and I went exploring on the campus... AKA time to use the GoPro. You know, I love that thing, but I don't really use it that often unless an event like today comes along... I was glad to break that cool cat out. We first went to the Football stadium. That was an adventure and yes, we have video to prove it all. It was very amusing, but we got some great pictures (lol all that matters... jk) and had some great laughs. Then, we went to the commons because that was where the real action was taking place. Everyone was all around taking in all the campus had to offer on this white day. It was a fun morning overall, but the best thing happen this afternoon.
I am blessed to live in a dorm with wonderful residents and even better RA's (resident assistant's). We have a bible study every Thursday and then we have an occasional worship where we get together as a group and sing worship songs. It is always a pretty rewarding experience. At TCU, I am sure other schools are like this too, students have to apply to become resident assistants and the task of getting this job an be a tad stressful and hard. TCU wants to hire the best students to take and mentor the other students. In my building we had six people apply to be RA's and the decision letters just so happened to come out while we were worshiping. It spread like wildfire! One person got an e-mail, read it, everyone waited nervously, and then everyone cheered because all six cool kids who applied in our dorm will be RA's next semester and that is a big deal. Especially for them... A lot was up in the air. They didn't know what type of living plans to make for next year or who to try and live with because that all depended on the RA outcome. I am so excited and happy for all 6 of those who got it, but I am especially happy for my good friend Michelle because I know she is going to make a great RA. She was very worried and I remember telling her that God had a plan and it would all work out. Can you imagine all that unknown in your life? It can make a person very worried. I am so happy for Michelle and everyone else!
In the words of Michelle, "Today is the best day!!!"
So there you have it... Even and Ice Day can be a great day! Tomorrow all schools in Fort Worth are closed, but TCU is starting at 12... I am not really sure how that makes sense, considering I fell today when playing on the ice
(see snapchat story).
Good thing I don't have class on Tuesday's! Wherever you are. Whatever weather you are experiencing. I hope you remember that any day can be a good day... you just have to embrace the good in it. Stay warm... Don't fall on the ice and be thankful for all that life has to offer. Here's to hoping the snow predicted for Wednesday comes through and here's to being thankful for it all.

What a great weekend with none other then my wonderful mom. I am absolutely thankful for this first Beta Mom's Weekend. Beta is my fraternity, incase you were unaware, and this weekend it was our first Mom's weekend. I can remember thinking, long ago, "would I ever have a Mom's weekend?" Needless to say, it was very exciting to finally be to that place in life. I mean I guess I could have had a mom's weekend without my fraternity planning it, but I sure am glad I got to experience this weekend of fun with my beautiful mom. My mom arrived on Friday and we got to spend the whole weekend together. It was kind of weird because normally someone else in my family will be with her, but this time it was just us, which I believe was much needed. She was here not too long ago, but I was still glad she came. I was excited for her to meet other mothers and I was excited for others to meet my mom. I mean when you have such a cool mom you can't help but want to show her off. We did all the typical things, ate all sorts of good food, did a little shopping, relaxed, went to a cocktail party, attempted to paint with several other brothers, ate great food, got all caught up, went to brunch, and just simply enjoyed being with one another.
Notice how I mentioned food twice?
Yes well I said that because we did eat lots of good food, but my mom is on a cleanse, which made it hard for her to eat at all of these places. But I want to thank her because she did the best to eat what she could at the places we went, which I really appreciate because there were certain places that I wanted take her and I appreciate that she stuck it out and didn't let it affect her weekend with me. She also brought me some surprises that I love. It was really so sweet of her... Thank you Mom for doing little things that make me so happy and make me feel so loved.
Mom's weekend is a time for us to spend time with our Mom's and it was very cool to see each person's mother because a lot of us are like are mothers and even look like our mothers. I can't really describe the feeling, but it was a great feeling to have everyone surrounded by their mothers in one place. So much love in one place. It was really so special.
I really miss my mom sometimes, even if I don't show it, but that makes the time together so special. Sometimes I do things and I think "oh gosh my mom would do this." She has done a great job supporting me in everything I do and I live in a different state. A mother who can handle that distance and still poor out that much love is a wonderful mother.
I am loving everything at TCU, but I will be ready to go home in less than two weeks! It will be so good for me to see my family and spend some time with them and then spend some more great time with my mom on a great break!
Mom, thanks for loving me and pushing me to do my best.. I know I may complain, but deep down I love and appreciate it. I had the BEST time with you this weekend and love you so so much. I have one of the best moms! Cherish the times with your moms my friend. One day you will look back and
A. Cherish those memories for a long time
B. Regret that you didn't make them
I encourage you to do whatever it takes to accomplish A and I promise the end result, you will be so thankful for!
Love you Mom!
Southern and Thankful
Please excuse my absence yesterday, but my mom is here and I am enjoying spending every waking moment with her. For the longest time I have seen other sororities and fraternity's posting and talking about Mom's weekend and that was something I always wanted to experience with my own mom... It looked like a special fun time and this weekend, I am getting to experience that. Mom's weekend has been great, which I will share more about tomorrow, but today has been such a fun day. When they made the Mom's weekend schedule, they had down on Saturday we would be "painting with a twist." Okay so I didn't really know what that was, but the only painting I am good at is when I paint a wall. Needless to say, I was very unsure of this event, but I knew it would be a great event with a lot of great guys and our mom's! I am not really sure what the twist was, but the painting was pretty fun. They have all of the same canvases and they all have the same out line. Ours today had a TCU horned frog and then they have an instructor at the front of the room who kind of guided us through painting our own beautiful honored frog. It wasn't something I would do
1. Because I can't paint at all
2. Because I would have never thought of it
But because of these reasons, it was a pretty good experience. My mom did paint on me and I did realize that I am still not artistic, but it was still a great time. I encourage you to take the time and do things outside of your normal, especially with the people you love. It makes for a great time! Stepping outside of our comfort zone is often not fun, but once we are out, it may become one of the best things.
I will share much more about Mom's weekend tomorrow, but today I am so thankful my mom is here and I am thankful we got to do something different with each other. We often forgot what it is like to get out of our comfort zone, but when we do, it makes for a great time. I hope you all are having a great weekend filled with thanks! I know I am thankful to be with my momma!

It's the little things ya know? God is constantly working in our lives and he is constantly doing things to remind us of this. It is very ironic to me and I love it. I know I have posted about it before, but it is so COOL to see and know he is there.
Today, started out like any typical Thursday.
Me sleeping as late as possible in hopes of getting as much sleep as possible. To wake up in a panic trying to get ready as fast as possible, thinking, "Cade if you would have gotten up when you set this first alarm all would have been fine. But you can't change this now." I showered threw on all the necessities for the day and I ran to catch the shuttle. I decided I would wait to do my devo when I got back from class because when I first woke up I had to review for my quiz. Anyways, after class and lunch I came back to my room and did my devo.
Sometimes when I am worried or unsure of something I like to write it in my journal because:
1. It makes me feel a lot better
2. I love to be able to look back and see how God worked everything out
I have been really down lately because I haven't been reaching as many people as I want. I mean my numbers of views are wonderful, but I always thought the longer I blogged the more people would begin to read. They have increased, but I always want more than I am given, you know? My constant prayer is that God will use me to impact and spread his news to as many people as possible. I have always said
"If you want me to live on a island with 50 people and share with them great, but just so you know God I would love to share with the whole world." I mean many people want that, but I just really feel like he is calling me to do that. So I wrote about my discouragements and moved on with my day. At that moment I looked down and there it was.
"I am courageous."
Right there on my cool purple socks. BAM.
I got these cool purple socks from my sweet friend Maycen for Christmas, but I didn't really pay attention to them because I loved the fact that they were purple... I didn't really notice anything else. But today... There it was... God's note to me. Those socks have been in my possession since 3 days before Christmas and God chose today, after I wrote in my journal about feeling discouraged, I suddenly see them. You can't tell me that was not God working in my life.
Courageous means not deterred by danger or pain; brave. This is what I needed to hear. I am letting the fear of how will I serve God or how will I impact more people, distract me. This is God's plan. I felt it on my heart to blog about him. I highly doubt he would make that a fail for me. Right now, I am where I am supposed to be and I am doing what I am supposed to. In life we often grow impatient, but lately I have been impatient with God, which is not needed. I am supposed to trust and love him, not question and fear him. Maycen, thank you so much for these socks. They are one of a kind and they are so me. I am so blessed by your friendship and today I am so blessed by these socks. They made my entire day and I am so thankful for that! Socks rock. God rocks. Life rocks. I am doing what God wants me to do and that is all that truly matters here. So friends, always remember to be courageous because with God on our side, there is nothing else to be.
Also, happiest of birthdays to one of the best people at TCU! Gianna I am so blessed that I meet you at TCU and so blessed that you have been so sweet to me since day one! Sorry I couldn't attend your party (safe ride probs) but I am so glad your mom sent you flowers so I could wish you a Happy Birthdsy! Wow I am so blessed by you and your love for life!!! I hope you had the best day because if any deserves it, it's you! I love ya lots my friend!
Stay thankful friends and remember to look for God's signs. He is always there!

Ash Wednesday is and has always been one of my favorite services. Growing up going to a Catholic School, I learned all about Ash Wednesday and why this is such an important day. I am Methodist and we also have a service and respect this day. Growing up, I was plenty involved. Some days I even got the Ash on my forehead twice... Yes, I am that person. Some people used to call me a MethCath because I was basically Methodist and Catholic. I didn't really mind. I loved growing up in two completely different church's because I feel like it made me more diverse and I saw that there was much more to religion. I was very active in both of those church's and I really loved this because it was so cool to me. The two denominations are very different, but I knew what to do in both services. What to say. What to wear. Where to sit. I mean I was a legit MethCath. As Ash Wednesday approached, I really struggled with two things.
1. Where to get my Ash?
2. What to give up?
It is pretty sad that I was so confused with what I was going to give up. I mean I don't really do anything that is unhealthy. Yes, I am on social media too much, but I have given that up before and I didn't want to just repeat myself. In times past, I have felt like I was trying to find the best thing to give up or trying to beat everyone else. I felt like I was trying to prove something to myself, but a little while back I realized that I was participating in lent for all the wrong reasons. I could give up sweets or I could give up social media, but those make me happy and the goal of lent is not to make us unhappy or make us look better... The goal of lent is to improve our relationship with God. God wants to be our treasure. He wants us to love and seek him at all times. Wherever your treasure is, your heart will be also. That is what I need this lenten season. That is what he all need. We need to put God and our hearts in the same place because together they make the best treasure. This lent I am going to practice letting God be first in my life. I am going to practice treasuring him daily. I am going to continue to express my thanks in hopes that I will grow much closer with God. It is amazing how much has changed since I started this blog. The relationship between God and I is always evolving. I am sure some people see me or even know me and think that I need to give up my phone or social media, which I do, but the truth is that in a way I feel like it brings me closer to God. I have been struggling lately because I was allowing others to make me feel like I was putting to much into this. Kind of like I was worshiping a false God. I really prayed about it because I thought if that was the case, then I needed to give it up for lent. There is no one or thing that will come before my God. I realized today that I am not worshiping this form of technology, I am using it to become closer to the one person that truly matters in this life. It would have been such a great feeling to give that up, but I think God and I are doing much greater things together with Southern and Thankful. Remember, you don't have to give something up. You can simply do something that brings you closer to God. Pray more. Volunteer more. Attend Sunday school or youth. Even join me in finding something to be thankful for everyday. As long as you feel like you are growing closer to our God, that is all that matters this lent. I am so glad I was able to attend a Catholic Mass today and feel so young again. I still remembered most of the prayers and sayings which was really weird to me, but I loved every minute of it. College is all about stepping outside your box and today I am thankful that I did that on this beginning of lent, just in time to learn what I needed to do for the next 40 days. They are going to be great, full of thanks, and full of seeking God as my treasure. Happy Lent everyone... Let God in and prepare for what is to come... Great things, my friends, great things!

Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way. A recent graduate from Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
