New Favorite Meal

For the last few weeks, John and I have been working together on some healthy habits, such as eating in moderation (calorie counting) and being more active. This attempt at becoming healthier feels different because I have John pursuing it with me, which I am SO thankful for. This journey Continue Reading

Valentine’s Cookin’

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. I mean, I love love. It’s my favorite. Between John having two tests this week and being tight on money, we had a simple date this year (though I would have loved an aquarium trip like last year). I love Continue Reading

Taking it Back

Today, I begin thinking positively. I have spent a majority of my life hating myself, being ashamed of how I look, and speaking hateful words toward my own body. I recognize that I am not perfect, yet it is imperative that I begin to see myself in a better light Continue Reading

Savannahversary Trip

(I just came up with the title for this post and I’m pretty proud of it. ) I was so excited for our third anniversary that I planned a little weekend trip to Savannah, Georgia: one of John’s favorite places and somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit! We ate AMAZING Continue Reading

Afternoon in Montgomery

Yesterday, John and I made a trip to Montgomery for a few hours. I haven’t been able to show him around the area where I’m now working so I planned a special date for us! First, we headed to Winton Blount Cultural Park (where the Walk I’m planning for NAMI Alabama will be held in September) to look around. We were excited to try out our new Sony A6000 camera with the kit lens and a Sony e-mount 55-210mm lens (which we used for most of the pictures). We walked around some and took photos before making an unexpected pit-stop at work to help with something. We then drove through downtown and walked down to Riverwalk and around the city a little. Of course, we ended the day with an ice cream cone and a stop at Best Buy (John’s request).

This is our favorite in terms of detail. We love mallards!

We had a great time messing with the new camera and looking at the beautiful birds and views at Blount Park. Enjoy these photos we took (amateur, but we still like them) and let us know what you like to do in Montgomery, AL! Hint: click on the photos to look through each individually.

The Job Hunt

I sat in the car after arriving 20 minutes early (whoops), breathing slowly and thinking. I fought every bone in my body that naturally told me to worry. My mind started to wander but I focused instead and prayed. I straightened my dress and inspected my makeup in the mirror, Continue Reading
