If you read yesterday then you are aware that I had lots to be thankful for. Instead of sharing all on one post I decided to separate two major things because they were just too good! The first thing was that Stephanie came to visit.. Still love her for that. But I have yet to share my thanks for the second thing.
If you know me, you know that I love Vineyard Vines. I am super thankful for that brand because I feel like all their clothing really describes me. That may sound silly, but my style is pretty unique and when I look at their website or go in the store I know it is me for sure. I have worked hard because all I really want in life is to be featured on their insta. I feel like I have said that before, but whatever I'm saying it again (lol).
This has never happened to be so you can imagine my reaction when my friend called me yesterday to tell me I was on the first page and it mentioned my name.
YOU ARE LYING?
IS THIS REAL LIFE?
EXCUSE MY WHILE I LOW KEY DIE!!!"
I mean what in the world? How does that even happen? I don't have an answer for that, but I sure am thankful that it happened. The picture is of me last summer when I was at the lake with all my vineyard vine gear on. I don't really now how that even happened, but boy do I fill like a big deal!
People have been texting, snapchatting and calling me saying they have seen me....that is just so cool to me! I'm still not really over it. I know it's probably weird, but it is very exciting. I never thought I would be on the insta, let alone the first page of the magazine. I don't really know how to write about it because I am in shock, a huge state of excitement, and I wish I could be in that magazine more often!
I am just thankful for all the opportunities that God has given me. Big or small, I am so thankful. I am also thankful because now all this money my parents and various others have spent on clothes for me has paid off... This is the best gift I could ever receive. It's important to recognize all that God does for us. There is not a day that goes where I am not amazed by what he is doing in my life. Take that into consideration as you go about your normal routine. God is so good, but not just because He made it possible for me to be in this magazine, but because he loves us all and wants use to do great things in life... All we have to do is trust Him and be thankful.
Southern and Thankful
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 student at 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!
