I’m Finished With This Blog

Hi. ❤ The topic of this post is going to be a solemn, bittersweet one, but it is something I know I must talk about!

Since the month of July began, I have been doing a lot of thinking about one thing in particular: BLOGGING. Scarcely have I thought of it more – you’d think that would be impossible! Being the writer on Dreaming of Guatemala has made it hard for my thoughts to not come back around to the topic of blogging since the day I created it – that’s how much I’ve loved it.

Whose Language I’m Learning

Whose Language I’m Learning

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful Sunday. ❤ It has been quite a while since I wrote a post on my language-learning journey, which means that this is the first time in a long time that the ‘Spanish’ category on my blog has been added to, haha!

In the year and a half that I’ve been seriously teaching myself Central American Spanish through the wonderful app that is Memrise, I have occasionally taken long, unplanned breaks. This has assisted me not only in continuing to love the language, but also in my dedication toward learning it.

What I’ve Been Loving – June 2018

What I’ve Been Loving – June 2018

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ In this post, I will be wrapping up my month of June with you! 🙂 I ended up doing so many fun and productive things these last few weeks that I honestly feel like June was enjoyed to its full potential by me and my family. I haven’t been able to say or feel that way about most months recently because time either crawls by, or a whole month is gone before I realize it! In the case of June, however, I’m very happy to say that I lived it and it didn’t just disappear. ❤ Today, I’m excited to share why I enjoyed this past month so much! I hope you enjoy!

Praying For The Desires Of Our Hearts

Praying For The Desires Of Our Hearts

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ The idea for this post came to me yesterday while exploring the Bible app on my phone. I came across a verse that has been both a comfort and a hindrance in my walk with the Lord over the years. The verse I’m talking about is Psalm 37:4, where the psalmist tells us that when we delight ourselves in the Lord, He will give us the desires of our heart.

I’d like to talk about this verse because it’s one of those promises of the Lord that can be easily misunderstood. Not quite getting the context can lead one to believe that when we pray for something fervently, and then still don’t get it, it’s tempting to think that this Bible verse is a lie.

I’m here to reassure you that it’s not.

Eighteen Months of Dreaming of Guatemala

Eighteen Months of Dreaming of Guatemala

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ This morning, I was thinking about what post I’d like to write and share today, and within moments, I knew in my heart that this was the one!

I love adding to post series I’ve been keeping up with for a while, and the last post I shared on this topic was last September, where I celebrated blogging / Guatemala-dreaming for eight months! (Check out that post here.) Today’s milestone is quite a bigger one, and I’m so grateful to be able to say that these combined passions are still very relevant in my life. Thank you so much for reading – I hope you enjoy!

Learning To Be A Humble Blogger

Learning To Be A Humble Blogger

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend. ❤ This is a post idea that’s been on my mind for the past few days, and I’m thankful to be able to share it today.

Recently, I have been thinking about how I’ve been blogging this past month or so – from the basic schedule I had laid out for myself, to the topics that have been being covered in my posts. I came across something while analyzing my blogging habits that piqued my attention.

I have been taking the responses of others on my posts too personally.
