We headed to the beach today: it was epic. Mud on feet, salt in my hair, sand on my skin, sun on my face, all combined with a majestic view of the coast. The view was worth the hard work of getting to it.
I loved it.

As some of you know, I am a huge DIYer. If I can make it with my own hands- I will. This past week I got to do a little bit of DIY in my room- I created this super easy to make jewelry hanger, and a headboard for my bed that has my most treasured memories on it. Granted the headboard turned out crooked, but for now I am satisfied (will redo after finals). This is just a glimpse of the DIY I have done in my room, maybe in the future I will show more of what I have.
BE KIND. We forget that the important people in our life need to feel just that- that they are important and they are valued. This doesn't require extensive planning or elaborate schemes- a simple journal, freshly picked wildflowers, their favorite chocolate or a handwritten letter: how hard are any of those?! Tokens of affection are so small and so easily doable- lets learn to be considerate and to constantly think of others (which also often happens to be the perfect remedy for self pity.) Repay your kindnesses by doing a kindness for someone else. BE KIND. “I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.”
Been hanging out with this cool guy a lot lately- gotta say that I am quite enjoying that while we are still young and don't have the world's responsibilities on our shoulders.
Never underestimate how much you can learn from your brother. I am so blessed to have found such a good friend in my brother. It's so awesome to watch him grow and become a man of God. He is such a caring and considerate person- love him to death. Oh yeah- today is his birthday :)
