Spring Break in Haiti

My trip to Haiti; in picture form

Advertisements

Hey loves,

So it’s been a little over a week since we got back from Haiti & it’s taken me a while to write this because truly I don’t have the words to describe the things I experienced on this trip. I have recounted the events over and over to friends and family and each time I find it more and more draining because while I loved the trip and had a great time, there are a lot of things that will stick with me for many years. –Things that I struggle to share with you

So I’ve decided that I’m going to keep this post to mostly photos because I don’t want the negative aspects of this trip to take away some of the amazing things that I experienced.

First and foremost I want to thank all the amazing friends I have made. We experienced things that we will probably never see again. I am very grateful that we became so close and that even after returning home we have continued to keep in -touch. I know that we have all struggled in our own ways and I find comfort in the fact that I have all of you by my side as we get through it together.

I will never forget all the times we laughed until we cried, danced on the rooftop, taken silly photos and the secrets we shared. Haiti was the experience of a lifetime and I wouldn’t have wanted to experience that journey with any other group of people. Never will I ever find people like all of you ❤

Wherever we go in life we will always have the memories of our trip to Haiti 🙂

Busy Busy

Hey Lovelies!

Still can’t believe it’s summer & I’m officially a Junior in college! Crazy how time flies…

Anywhoooo, I’ve been pretty busy, with moving home and getting adjusted to my summer schedule, but hopefully from here on out I’ll be able to post 3-5 times a week (that’s my goal anyways.)

Week three of BBG started yesterday, and I’ve switched it up a little bit this week, due to having a day off (my first real day off in I don’t even know how long). Chris and I woke up early to go on a hike, which was pretty satisfying to say the least, unlike freezing my bum off while he played golf in the cold a few hours later. (fyi; don’t agree to golfing unless it’s AT LEAST 60+ degrees out…you’ll thank me later!)

After golfing we came home and I was able to clean a bit, then relax and catch up on both Vampire Diaries and Quantico! I finally go to start meal prepping for the week, which was surprisingly pretty fun and we grabbed some froyo before Chris had to go to work. All in all, it was a great first day off & summer has already been full of fun and its only just begun. Cant wait to see what the rest of summer holds!

Here’s my BBG schedule for the rest of the week:

*Tuesday ~Arms & Abs + 15 minutes on the treadmill

*Wednesday ~Legs & cardio + 15 minutes on the elliptical

*Thursday ~ 35 minute run

*Friday ~Full Body workout

*Saturday ~Ab workout + 25 minute run

*Sunday ~Rest day/Meal Prep

Bye Bye Sophomore year👋🏻

So it’s my last day of my sophomore year of college and I’m currently waiting for my RA to check me out of my room. I never thought it would be this sad to walk into an empty apartment…I live pretty close to campus, so I’ve been moving my stuff out all week but decided it would be best to go back one last time and double-check everything before I checked out…man was this a mistake.

I walked in and was immediately overtaken by how sad it was to see everything bare and empty. It feels like just yesterday Marley and I were hauling our stuff in, a week before everyone else to start Dance Camp Preseason…and now the year is over… So much has changed this year, and its crazy to think that we won’t be moving in early ever again…that we’ll never have a dance preseason again…

As I sit here, I reflect on this year. It has definitely, by far been the craziest year of college yet…So many things have changed for both the worst and the better, but that’s life. I’ve learned a lot this year, and I’ve accomplished even more. I’m realizing that it’s true what they say; the college years are really some of the best times of your life.

This year I’ve gained 2 of my best friends, who in these past few weeks, I have done EVERYTHING with, and I know I can always count on them for anything. I met the love of my life, & we’ve traveled to places I would have never imagined. I’ve made it half way to my bachelor’s degree, and although it hasn’t always been easy, I’ve learned to take the good with the bad. After working 2 jobs and about 50+ hours a week first semester I have become a Sales Lead at Pier 1 and have had some pretty great experiences with my team.

My life is crazy, I’ll admit, but its mine. From the late nights staying up to finish homework after work, and the early mornings at the gym, there’s nothing I would change. Some argue that I’m missing out on the real college experience; late nights with friends and partying into the early mornings…But that has never been me… maybe when I’m closer to the end :p

As for Summer? Maybe it’ll be different, maybe some nights will be “crazy” with less responsibilities, but my goal is just to be happy. Workout, have fun and spend time with family and friends 🙂

Next up, JUNIOR YEAR!

Rainy mornings & cute cafes!☕️

We are officially at the last week of sophomore year, and I couldn’t be more happy that summer is just around the corner. I’ve had a great year and have learned and accomplished so so much, but it’s nice to know that I have a four month break to look forward to. Since the next few days will be spent studying for finals, Marley and I decided to take this morning to relax a bit before it gets hectic again.

Snapchat-7989486581616245531After going for a walk in the cold morning drizzle (as per BBG), we visited my absolute favorite café here, called The Bean Counter. We came across thisSnapchat-2341650271436841236 cute little coffee shop last year during a dance event, when we snuck out in search of some place warm. One of the girls suggested that we go there and I have been in love with it ever since. Not to mention they have the yummiest breakfast sandwiches everrrr😍

*It’s crazy to think that in less than a week the apartment will be packed up and we will be home for the summer. For now, I’m enjoying the last of the little things of my sophomore year of college.
