Ryan proposed & I said yes!

Started this new blog to document our engagement... and maybe i'll use it to document the rest of our lives together, idk!

So many things in my planner already, but I'm excited!

end of summer 2013

So, summer "break" is almost over, my internship is almost over, my undergraduate career is almost over.

Tomorrow, I start my new job and I start grad school in a month. I really just cannot wait to graduate with my BSW and get his MSW thing knocked out.

Today I spoke at a pro-life event for teens in Blanco. It was SO fun! Ryan went with me and we had a great time. The youth were awesome and the other speaker - David Bereit, exec director of 40 Days for Life - was just phenomenal. It was a great experience!

Anyways, I've been so busy with my Etsy store, photography, internship, and schoolwork to update in a while, so I'll throw some pictures at ya.

summer 2013

What have I been up to this summer?

  • 40 hours a week of an unpaid internship
  • 3 hours of class every other week in San Marcos
  • Living at Ryan's parents' house in the extra bedroom
  • Lots of crafting
  • I started an Etsy shop
  • I became a Spurs fan!
  • Hanging out with Ryan when he isn't studying for the MCAT
  • Bought my first non-twin-size bed. Queen life.
  • Applying for millions of jobs
  • Pranking Kyle back and forth
  • I am hooked on sno-cones (Kyle happens to work there)
  • I am taking baby steps to rejuvenate my spiritual life
  • Said "see ya lata" to Fr. Brian, our wonderful Priest
  • Got asked to speak at a teen pro-life event next month
  • Convinced Ryan to try out yoga with me in the evenings (it's hilarious)
  • and I'm really just trying to rest as much as possible. TIRED!
Welp, we leave for MI for 5 days next week and I can't wait. That's it. Oh yeah, Ruby is the cutest thing ever still and she is crawling and standing up and almost walking. So advanced. 

my etsy shop!

bye Fr. Brian :(

Hello Cutie Ruby!


Gonna be real with y'all in this quick post. The past few days I have been more in tune with pro-life happenings than I have been in the past month or two combined. Aside from life being busy, which I recognize it always will be, I think separation from Bobcats For Life sunk in when I left San Marcos and I am feeling more free. Ignorance is bliss? Perhaps... but the knowledge that cannot be unknown will always disrupt that bliss. As far as I wander or run from advocacy, my heartstrings tie me to those vulnerable little ones. Following SB5 has been like riding a rollercoaster. Hoping this passes. It would be so life giving.
