An Introduction To FAITH

I always want to be transparent with everyone, and there has been something on my heart quite a bit recently. I’ve spent the last couple weeks working really hard on something that I think will be one of my favorite additions to this site!

For the last year, I have found myself diving back into my faith, which I had abandoned for most of my life. Don’t get me wrong- I’ve always had faith, but I haven’t practiced my faith much at all since I was a child. I’m not sure what exactly brought me back to a place of wanting to know God again, but whatever it was, it hit me like a truck.

I started watching videos, reading books, and referring to the Bible in times of confusion or worry. As it has become such a huge part of my life now, I thought I should let that reflect in my work.

I am extremely excited to start my next series- FAITH. Yeah, I spent the last two weeks coming up with that super creative name. Just kidding, but I had to acknowledge how basic it is. 

FAITH is made up of just about literally anything faith based- makes sense, right? That includes everything from bible studies to church notes and personal reflection. It’s my way of sharing my thoughts with you in a new and meaningful way.

I’m super excited to start this series and share this part of my life with you guys. I think this is something I was meant to do and although I feel a ton of pressure, this will be something I look forward to doing.

So stay tuned for new FAITH posts every other Sunday at noon, starting this Sunday!

Meet My Boyfriend

As I mentioned when I first came back, a lot has happened over my spicy COVID summer. One of those things being meeting my boyfriend and my better half, Colt. And ever since we met, we’ve been inseparable. It’s pretty cool.

I was hesitant on writing about our relationship just yet because of what usually happens whenever I share too much of my personal life too soon (hint: it goes to shit), but I think that now more than ever, we have to be over the moon about every victory. And Colt is definitely one of my biggest victories.

Colt is the sweetest man I have ever met, let alone dated. He cares so much for other people and is always willing to go out of his way to make sure others have what they need. I was immediately shocked (and impressed) by how selfless this man is. It was one of the first things that got me hooked.

He was the first man to actually take me out on a first date, open every door for me, and treat me with unwavering respect. I’m amazed that someone like him exists. I don’t believe that I deserve him in the slightest, but I won’t complain.

Something extra special about our relationship is that it is my first long distance relationship. I mean, it’s not super long distance, but it’s still a whole new ball game for me. We’re nearly four hours apart, which can be daunting at times, but we’ve learned to make the best of it. Plus that saying, “distance makes the heart grow fonder,” has proven itself to be very, very true.

I know that Colt and I will be going on several adventures together, so you’ll be hearing a lot about him in the future. Be ready!
