It's finally December!! To be real, I have been in the Christmas zone since November 1st.
To celebrate, Delaney, Ashlyn, & I had a "party." Not an actual party, we just drank hot chocolate, ate popcorn, & watched Elf (which, in my opinion, is THE best Christmas movie everrrr).
Enjoy these cute pics of me & my girls.
My heart is so full. These girls are such a blessing in my life & I can’t imagine not having such an amazing friendship with each of them.
This morning I got the opportunity to meet with them & some other girls to chat, get coffee, & just enjoy the company of each other.
We chatted & explored how to be our authentic selves & incorporate authenticity into our leadership.
I learned so so many new things about these girls & myself today & moving forward, I can’t wait to live to my most authentic self.

Uninvited is a book by Lysa Terkeurst. It's all about recognizing that God loves us each & everyday when it feels like others don't.
One quote that stuck with me that I read about tonight was this: "Live loved."
Not only is this a reminder, but also a challenge. Everyday, even if it seems as if the people around you don't love you, God is always there & he always loves us. Even when we were nothing, when we were just a thought. He loved us. We are able to live everyday loved because God loves us. God is good, He loves us, & He is good at being God. Not only does He love us, but He also made a plan for us. Though it may be tough & often cause us to feel lonely & unloved, He knows what He is doing, & all we can do is wait & pray & trust & love God.
I hope my words remind you of this & I seriously hope you will get this book! Every word, every page, hit me hard. I often feel this way, & I emotionally connected to this book. It has given me a great deal of hope & I hope it will do the same for you.
Hey! Recently I got the amazing opportunity to partner with Krochet Kids & take photos with some of their products for them!
It was so much fun & inspiring to get to do that for a company like Krochet Kids.
All of their products are handmade by incredible women from Peru who are facing poverty there. Every product is made by a different woman, who writes her name inside of the product. When it comes in the mail, you can look up the name on the tag son their website & read about the woman who made your product!
Also!! Follow them on Instagram @krochetkids
Hope you like the photos!
P.S. all photos were taken by my amazing & talented friend Hannah Mincer
It may officially be fall, but it is still beach weather to us. Today, Summer, Megan, Madi, & I went down to Strands Beach, Dana Point. The water was SUPER warm & clear & overall PERFECT. Afterwards, we all drove back to Madi's house, where we baked cookies & coffee cake & watched "Me Before You". What a rad way to end the weekend.
Today I got to visit my brother, Logan, at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego.
We picked him up from his dorm & went to church at the Rock Church Point Loma. Seriously, the Rock Church is the most rad church. The worship was incredible & the pastor had an inspiring message.
Next, we ate an amazing lunch at Point Loma Seafood & drove around for a while.
During our driving adventure, we stopped at a rad coffee shop that I had been wanting to try for a while called Better Buzz coffee. DELICIOUS. 10/10 recommend this place if you are ever up in the area.
After grabbing some coffee, we headed back to the stunning campus & got to check out Logan's dorm & meet his roommate, Grant.
It was so awesome to get to see my brother today! we all missed him a lot, even though he has only been gone for 3 weeks!
