July has been full of blessings. In between the funnest family trip to Seattle and filming the sweet Anderson family in Oahu life was full of farewells, dinner with the Hafens, going to girls camp since we just couldn't get enough, the 4th of July, and even more farewells and goodbyes. While I was in the middle of July it seemed like a trial. In fact, I spent most of this month crying to Syd & my sweet mom about how I feel stuck in between not belonging at home anymore but being terrified for whats to come. Now looking back on July's high points it seems like such an incredible time and I hope that's what I can remember it by. It's been tough to live life without Dylan and tons of my friends but I still have such a full life.
In my next monthly post I'll have pictures of my new apartment and room mates. My last monthly post had pictures of Dyl and high school and Eliza. (Hopefully that puts things into perspective of July being somewhat the calm before in between storms)
I believe in Christ so come what may.
