Been a Busy Bee

Oh my goodness! I promise I have not forgotten about my blog. Haha. I have been soo busy this week! Let me tell you a little bit about it.

First of all, I’m still in high school (Junior year) so I’ve been busy trying to make all A’s. So that’s busy in itself because it’s the end of the year and they love to pile on the homework in the last few weeks.

Well on Monday night I was in the Spring concert at school. I’m in ensemble because I love to sing so much! Tuesday was a really big day because I finally got my license! Yes! The lady who did the test was kinda intimidating but that’s okay. I got through it. Then Wednesday I had to do a lot of homework and then I had to help with Kids For Christ club at church. Then Thursday I had to go get my dress for a military ball the next day! It was mint green! I also had to to study for a huge test the next day so I had to study a bunch! Man that was stressful..

Well this weekend has been amazing! Well school was okay yesterday (lets not mention that math test I didn’t even get to finish..), but I was looking forward to that night so it was okay. After school, I went home and started getting ready for military ball! My sweetheart is in JROTC (he’s a Junior too). This was the third military ball I’d been to with him. Anyways, mom helped me with my hair and I did my makeup and put on on my dress! I felt so special!

When mom dropped me off with my love, we took pictures. Tons of them. Haha! Then time for the ball. It was amazing. The formal portion was nice and the food was very good, but my favorite part was the dancing. I am horrible at dancing, but it sure was fun! Slow dancing with the love of my life was the highlight of my night. Oh man I love him so much.

Well today was my birthday! I turned 17! I spent the day with my man today. He spoiled me by taking me out to eat Japanese. Then he let me drive him around a little! I think he was scared.. He gave me the best birthday ever though. So now you know why I wasn’t able to blog this week. I might do more journal-ish blogs again. Let me know what you guys think! Much love! 🙂

Four Reasons to Journal

I have tons of hobbies. I write, sing, read, knit, ect., but my favorite thing to do is journal. I just love writing down my memories, thoughts, and dreams. Although it may not be for everyone, I’m going to give you 4 reasons why you should give it a shot.

Reason #1: Helps Relieve Stress. Sometimes the events of our every day lives can become overwhelming, and you just feel like you can’t even think straight. Well it really helps to write your thoughts feelings down. It enables you to free your mind and think more clearly. It is like having a personal therapist anytime you need one.

Reason #2: You Can Look Back. A great thing about journaling is that you are able to look back and see what you’ve gone through. Also if you ever need to smile, try to flip through your journal and find a happy memory.

Reason #3: Sharpens Your Memory. When you write down the events of your day, you are digging back into your mind; therefore, it will make you remember it longer. Plus, the mere act of writing something down is good for memory too.

Reason #4: You Can Pass It Down. One of the biggest reasons to journal is so that you will have something to pass down to your children that they can pass down to their children and so on and so on. People will be able to see what your life was like, and they can still feel connected to you many years after you are gone.

So why not give it a try? You might really enjoy it! Just buy a journal (leather ones work very well), and get yourself a favorite pen, and write away! 🙂

For The One I Love.

My love. You are the best thing that’s ever happened to me. These past few years with you have been simply amazing. You make me fall deeper in love more and more each day.

We’ve had so many fun memories together. Like when we sing off key in your car together. Or when we act silly and don’t make sense. Or when we go to the mall just to walk. Or when we sit in parking lots in deep conversations then leave the place because we forgot what we went there for. You get the idea. Haha. 🙂

Also I love how you never get upset with me even though I am stubborn and hard to reason with sometimes. I love how you never give up on me. You are my rock. You hold me when I cry. You make me laugh when I’m sad. You always tell me to keep my head up and be strong.

No matter where this life takes us, I will always be standing behind you. I’ve got your back. I’m not only your girlfriend, I’m your partner in crime, and together we can conquer this world!

I love you so much.

Forever and always.💜
