Dipping My Toe In...

It has been almost a year since I've blogged and I miss it.

I have decided that my New Years resolution is going to be getting back into blogging! I know that means that I won't start blogging again until January, but I've decided to dip my toe back into the blogosphere with a photo challenge. For the month of December, I'm going to be posting a picture a day as a way to ease my way back into this wonderful world of Love, My Twenties. If you'd like to join in on this December Photo Challenge, please tell me! Use the hashtag #LM20sDecember on Twitter, Facebook, and/or Instagram or if you'll be blogging along with me, comment with your link!

See you officially in January and for now, please enjoy my photo challenge!

The Challenge:

December 1: Self Portrait
I wear glasses now. I still love tea. I have a newfound love for coffee. December to me means red!

December 2: Sunset
One of my favourite things that God has created: sunsets. The sky is His canvas.

December 3: Decorated
Our basement is now decorated in a winter wonderland theme full of cream, crystal, gold, and silver.

A Year, Old & New

As the first month of 2014 comes to a close, I decided to take a look back at my year in 2013 and look ahead to what I want to accomplish as this new year continues. Seeing how many things happen in a year helps remind you of the life that's fleeting, along with helping remember the amazing time that God's given you in such a short time.

My 2013

1. Went on College Life Retreat
2. Got back into Chi Omega.
3. Changed my major!
4. Truly grew in my faith and learned what it meant to be a true follower of Christ.
5. Checked a lot of things off my 101 Lists.
6. Started my Etsy shop for my paddle keychains.
7. Enjoyed a family weekend in Chicago.
8. Finally, truly, experienced being in college.
9. Took a road trip to LA.
10. Had a girls' weekend in Las Vegas.
11. Experienced a new culture and enjoyed new adventures in Jamaica.
12. Grew my mediation and conflict-resolution skills.
13. Made the decision to get baptized.

Looking ahead to 2014...
...I want to get baptized
...I want to go to church
...I want to finish my senior year bucket list with my friends
...I want to make significant progress on "The Light that Carried Me"
...I want to meet someone incredible
...I want to continue to read the Bible & growth books to learn even more about the Lord
...I want to become more involved in College Life
...I want to experience Chi Omega in all its glory
...I want to get a job or an internship
...I want to look into medical studies for my illnesses, along with my own medical charts
...I want to continue to grow in my relationships in college
...I want to spend less money and keep track of my finances
...and I want to get involved with a foster care program.
