I’m making carrot cake today! YES.
I should probably mention that the Wilds emailed me today ASKING ME TO BE A COUNSELOR THIS SUMMER.
Freaking out with excitement.
Today Grandmother (my great grandma) turns 94. So I’m driving through snow to go see her. :) Talk about a legacy she has left!
She must have honored her parents ;)
I was just in the mood to look at wedding dresses today. I drooled, I wondered, I was even disgusted at one point (because of the immodesty and absolute UGLINESS of some of the ones I saw). As I was looking at these wedding dresses I couldn’t help but sigh and wonder … I am only 20. I get it, but let’s just be honest, I’m like 30 at heart. I’ve been doing wifely and mom things since I was pretty much old enough to hold a spatula and sort laundry. I’m just domestic like that. It’s my nature. AndI really do want to get married! But the thing I learned was not “God’s writing my love story” or “I just need to wait and God will bless me”. Nope! I just felt content with where God has me now. I don’t need to wait around for God to bless me; He already is and has! And yes, maybe he does have a man for me- that won’t be intimidated by my loyalty and committed nature or even my extreme weirdness and occasional awkward moments- Haha! But I realized that if singleness is what God has for me, then I’d better learn to embrace it and learn all I can from it. No matter what phase of life God has me in I need to be thankful and I need to be content.
P.S. I’m going to visit my cousins on Friday and I’m so SO excited! I’m surprising Levi for his birthday =) He’s gonna love it.
I want to go to Australia and Italy.
