Influence Conference // Meet + Greet

Next week I’ll be heading back to one of my most favorite cities, Indianapolis, to attend The Influence Conference. Ever since I heard about this conference a few years ago, I have wanted to attend! Especially after launching my blog last year, I felt this conference would be even more beneficial for me. The conference and The Influence Network, is all about “making your online presence mean something.”

Baby Grand is Growing // Week 21

Week 21

So far, this week has definitely been less “exciting” than last week…but I’m definitely not complaining! It’s been relaxing, restful and spent feeling my lil babe’s increasingly stronger kicks. One of the highlights was definitely going to my friend Sarah’s baby shower…especially when we hugged hello and our bellies bumped! She’s due in October and I’m so excited to have little baby friends with her!

Happy Fab Fall Friday!

I got a new “do” this week! A little shorter, a little more natural. I don’t know about you, but a new hairstyle kind of makes me feel like a new person, and just all around happy. I guess it was perfect timing to fit in with my fresh start this month!

Not only that, but I got to spend some time with a great friend who not only encouraged me, made me laugh hard and spoke truth to my heart, but also brought me my favorite Starbucks drink.

Too Many Friends.

I used to think you could have too many friends. But with every life change (joining staff with Cru, moving to Indianapolis, moving to Columbus, switching ministries within Cru) I keep realizing my heart is bigger than I know.

Some of my best friends to this day are girls I’ve known since elementary school. And I had bucked teeth in elementary school, so I’m really lucky they even wanted to be my friend to begin with.
