Geneva  "God has delivered me...And I shall live to enjoy the light of life" Job 33:28// PNW, WWU

We are kind of a mess but in the best possible way ❀ I am continually blown away by the friendship and sisterhood I find in our relationships. Thank you for getting all dressed up, laughing together, and rocking those groovy dance moves at our 80s prom tonight.

Vancouver, your roads and drivers continue to terrify me (what does the blinking green mean??) but you inspire a sense of adventure in my heart when I just need to get away. Thankful to live so close to the 51st state πŸ˜‰

As I walked past an older guy holding a "Trump-make America great again" flag today in Red Square, I felt compelled to ask him what he, personally, was doing to make America great. Knowing that he was mostly standing out there for conflict rather than productive conversation, I refrained from talking to him and instead just reflected on this question myself. What am I doing daily to better the community, country, and world around me? It is not enough to leave it up to the federal government to do whatever they believe is best. No matter what political platform you support, there is always something we could be doing to help. Hold the door for someone with their hands full, go out of your way to help a friend, buy someone a coffee just because, SMILE MORE. Let's work on being better humans, y'all 😊

Working on not getting too bogged down with the everyday that I forget to occasionally look around and see how wonderfully miraculous the world is around me. ✨

Stinkin' proud of this man for getting a job offer from Amazon! I am constantly amazed by your intelligence, perseverance, and positive attitude. Excited for this new adventure!

Thankful for the snow that keeps falling, giving me an excuse to drink hot cocoa daily without feeling (too) bad about it πŸ˜‹πŸ™ŒπŸ»β„οΈ

BLESSED by the friendship and sisterhood that I have with Kenz! She wrote me letters to open each month leading up to my wedding day. I continue to be touched by the level of thoughtfulness and love that I receive from her. Great friends are such a joy ❀️

How I am feeling about the school-cancelling snow day we had today! Filling it with all the best things~ long walks, friends, naps, chai tea lattes, baking cookies, and watching movies. ☺️

Getting so giddy looking at the sneak peek of Bran and I's engagement photos. Thank you for capturing our love so well, @teresaallenmartinphotos! πŸ’˜

Needing this reminder today more than normal. Love those around you, hug those who are afraid, create unity where there is divisiveness, and boldly speak truth when people want to shout lies. We're going to make it through πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έβ€οΈ

Jumping for joy into the new year! 2017, I'm comin' for ya! I can't wait to marry my best friend, continue to learn more about subjects I'm passionate about, and make new memories with dear friends! While I don't know what it'll hold or where it'll take me, my heart is contented knowing that The Lord is leading me throughout it all! πŸ™πŸ» blessings to you all!

Getting a head start on our New Years resolutions πŸŽ‰ also, we may have only chose this hike because the name made us giggle πŸ™ˆ
