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 there! I hope you’re having a beautiful Monday. ❤ This past Saturday, I planned out all the post ideas I’d love to share throughout this whole upcoming week. I’m excited to write them and post them – they’re going to be awesome!
To start off this epic bout of productivity (haha), I brought an uncompleted post idea I’ve wanted to write for a while out of my phone’s notes. I’m very happy to get to share the completed version with you today. ❤ 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.

Hi there! Happy Friday to you! ❤ I hope you’re having a great weekend. 🙂 As the days have grown warmer here in Georgia, I have gradually began thinking more and more about how I’d like to spend the summer months. Living in the South means that our summer lasts usually from early May to late September, haha, so you can imagine why I absolutely love October!
Since I usually tend to spend the most time indoors in our hotter months (the humidity kills me lol), I am coming up with ways to spend this time wisely. Sitting around and blogging the whole summer away is tempting, but would definitely not be the smartest way to spend my time, haha! Because of this, I have come up with a list of several, productive things I want to do over the following months.

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ It has been nearly a week since I wrote a blog post, which is quite unusual for me, haha. Tuesday’s post was pre-written, so I did respond to comments and I have been reading posts, but I had actually written that post in the week before!
The craziest thing about the highs and lows of blogging inspiration is that typically, I’ll take some time off from blogging because I can’t think of a thing to write. Throughout June, however, I have had several ideas, but just couldn’t focus enough to write any of them! This is because of the different things that have been going on for me and my family (all good things!), which took away my writing mindset completely. You’ll see why in today’s post!

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!
