Well, today officially marks my one year anniversary in Santa Fe! How. In. The. World. has one year passed?! This has been a phenomenal one - probably the most important year to-date. The amount of growth I've experienced truly can't even be put into words. Let me just tell ya, moving to a new city all alone is no easy feat. Had you told me this is what my life would look like five years ago, I would have laughed and never believed you.

Boy am I BLESSED. It's so easy to focus on all the things that aren't perfect in your life and ignore all the things that are so wonderful. Trust me, I struggle with this on the daily. But, dang. I have a loving and oh-so-supportive family, a pup I adore and couldn't imagine life without, the best of friends, an incredible career, access to amazing opportunities, and the list goes on. I am grateful - and constantly trying to stand in the peace of God's presence.

Over the last year, I've done things I've never done - gone places I've never gone - seen sights I've never seen - and been who I never knew I could be. Man, this just brought tears to my eyes. Does my life look the way I thought it would? The way I envisioned since I was a little girl? No. Not even close. But, would I change a thing? Absolutely not. This was all a part of God's plan and who knows better about what's best for me than Him?

I hope you have the courage to step outside your comfort zone. To take chances, take risks. Believe in yourself. Never stop dreaming.

Why? Because oftentimes, you're the only one holding yourself back from the life you WANT to live. The life you CAN live.


These leather earrings are suuuuper cute! I have three pairs and I get so many compliments on them :) They're handmade in Lubbock, TX. You can get 15% off your order with code: ss15 YOU NEED THEM IN YOUR LIFE

Also, this tank comes in 4 other colors and is under $20 - sandals are RESTOCKED in all colors and sizes for under $15 (a legit steal!) and jeans are some of the most comfortable I own (wear them more often than I care to admit). 

Enjoy, yall!
