I'm so thankful that I get to kiss this man every day, for the rest of my life.

To my very bestfriend, thank you.
Gosh, I don't even know where to begin... Thank you for understanding me like no one else ever has. Thank you for all the nights that turned into mornings. Thank you for all of the "study sessions" that turned into us laughing and listen to country music on my porch. Thank you for jamming to Hilary Duff, Avril Lavigne, and Fergie with me. Thank you for all of Jack's gravy biscuits/hamburgers you consumed with me. Thank you for pushing me to get up for class, and for skipping class with me so I didn't feel guilty for it. Thank you for drying so many of my tears, and for trusting me to dry yours in return. Thank you for inspiring me. Thank you for guiding me. Thank you for listening wholeheartedly to every fear, concern, or worry I brought to you. Thank you for loving me unconditionally, even when I made it SUPER hard.
Thank you for cancelling plans just to be by my side when Cody got down on one knee for me. Thank you for taking such incredible photos of such an important moment in our lives. Thank you for bringing me an entirely different outfit to change into just in case I didn't like mine enough (which you assumed right, because I absolutely hated it). Like I said... you know me better than anyone else.
The list goes on and on. But I just need you to know that I am so thankful for this precious friendship, every single day. I owe you the world, Han.

Although this weekend was absolutely incredible, it was also bittersweet.
After I said "yes" to the man of my dreams, I said "goodbye" to my nugget of a little sister as she packed her things to move to Auburn.
Aubrey Lynn, I am so beyond proud of you. You are so brave. You are so beautiful. You are so intelligent. You are so kind. You are so full of life, laughter, (and nutella). I know that it has to be so difficult to leave your family, friends, Scout Man, and your pups behind. But I hope you know that we are ALL so excited for you and what your future holds. Watching you pursue your dreams is worth every second we spend apart.
But I won't lie to you... I'm already missing the days when we lived under the same roof, pretended to be cats/dogs, gave mom and dad concerts on our karaoke machine, and laughed around the dinner table together.
I love you so much, B. More than you know. Always.

Last night the man of my dreams got on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life by his side, as we were looking over the city of Birmingham.
I couldn't be more excited to love you, support you, and cheer you on for the rest of our days, Cody Austin.
It's such a privilege to call you my fiancΓ©, and to be given the opportunity to call you my husband one day soon.
You are my dream come true. And I can't wait to make you the happiest man in the world, every second of every day, for the rest of our lives.

HUGE thank you to my bestfriend @hannah__faithh & @bigblackbaker for being by our sides to document the entire proposal. I can't wait to see all of the pictures from the best moment of our lives.
With that said, I apologize in advance for the overload of engagement pictures that I'll be posting.

Completed my #anarrowaday challenge for @huntressview this evening 🎯
.
.
It wasn't my best night of shooting, but luckily I had this guy and his cute daddy to cheer me on and cheer me up when my groupings weren't close together πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

My form is getting better, my strength continues to increase, and my confidence is slowly but surely moving up! I can't wait for October... but I'm not wishing time away, because I need as much practice as I can get πŸ˜‚

Thankful for another beautiful evening to participate in #anarrowaday by @huntressview!

"So now, take your hunting gear, your bow and quiver of arrows, go out to the field, and hunt game for me."

This year will be my first season of bow hunting, and although I couldn't be more excited... I still need A LOT of practice. But luckily for me, @huntressview started their annual #anarrowaday challenge this past week! So now I have an even better excuse to spend more time flinging arrows ☺️

Then suddenly you know... it's time to start something new & trust the magic of beginnings ✨
.
.
I'm embracing that quote SO MUCH right now. Between Transferring Universities, swapping majors, moving two hours away from home, starting a new job, & adjusting to a schedule that I'm not used to, I've discovered a crazy amount of beginnings! ☺️
.
.
But because of these beginnings, I've had to deal with something I'm not a fan of... change. I am the definition of a "creature of habit." So adjusting is TERRIFYING to me. It's so terrifying that I often struggle to see the advantages of these changes πŸ˜…
.
.
I fail to realize that so many benefits come from adjusting to change. Change allows us to grow, mature, and adapt. For instance, I've discovered a new career path by starting an incredible job that has SO much in store for my future! I've transferred Universities & finally declared a major that I'm excited to pursue! I've relocated so that I don't have to drive two hours to work, school, or to spend time with the love of my life. And now I have an excuse to wear pencil skirts πŸ˜‰
The point is, the scary changes in my life have opened new doors for me πŸšͺ
.
.
.
All of that to say, if you're in a time of change... DON'T FREAK OUT (like I do) πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
Change means growth. It means you're moving forward. It means you have the opportunity to learn something! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
.
.
Also, while I'm ranting, I'm thinking about starting a blog but I have no idea where to start. Anyone have suggestions? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ If you do, PLEASE comment or message me with your advice. I'm desperate for it, so it's greatly appreciated! I mean, I've got to start typing somewhere else so I can stop posting lonnnnng captions πŸ™ˆ
.
.
PS. For those of you that already saw this photo on my story awhile, I apologize. But thank you to everyone who responded to it & encouraged me after I posted it! That was so kind of all of you 🌼

what we have is all I'll ever need πŸ’›

I know that I'll never forget catching this beautiful bass back in April... but it sure is nice to have her on my wall as a reminder anyway πŸ˜‰

We took a trip to Build-A-Bear today because this sweet girl (by sweet girl, I actually mean diva) turns four in six days! πŸ‘±πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
No matter how big (or sassy) she gets, she'll always be my little Layla Bug πŸ’›

You have transformed me into the woman I never thought I could become and you have given me a love that I never knew existed, Cody Austin. I am forever thankful and I hope I get to show you that everyday from now on.
