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.

Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ I had another post I was planning to write for today, but I was too excited about what my family and I did last weekend to push this post back!
This past Sunday, my family threw me a graduation party!

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!

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.

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!

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.

Hey there! ❤ I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend 🙂 With summer having just officially arrived, I can’t help but think about all of the fun possibilities this new season holds for me and my family! I’m hoping that maybe, just maybe, we’ll have the chance for all of us to go on a fun vacation together. ❤ However, we have to take into consideration the youngest ones, who find it hard to stay in their car seats for too long. (In fact, I’m not the biggest fan of long car rides either. haha!) Even if we don’t take an official “vacation” of sorts, I’m certain that we’ll have fun going out on at least one day trip. 🙂 You’ll have to let me know what you’re planning to do this summer! Intro aside, I’m happy to introduce you to today’s post. I hope that you enjoy!

Teach Me To Be Gentle
Teach me to be mindful
of every word I say.
Teach me to pause in moments of anger
and simply stop to pray.
Teach me to care for
my siblings when they’re sad.
Teach me to think first
instead of getting mad.
