August was the last gust (pun intended) of summer air before the school year kicked in. I am excited because after next month is my favorite month (minus the school) October!! I can almost smell the pumpkins and hay bales. <3






Made bread and played around with pottery clay with some sisters in Christ. Always a good way to start the month.

Such a wonderful group, love them!




A few of my siblings and I, four out of the eight. <3


Oh look, I found an elephant!

The majority of this month was hanging out with beloved friends and drinking coffee, of course.


Some ice coffee I made ft. my arm and my little brother's head in the background as he looked over the counter to watch me and asked if he could have some.  


It was so prettyyyy.

I also made frappes and snickerdoodle with a friend one Sunday afternoon. Who even needs starbucks? 

My mom straightened my hair for the second time in my life, the last time I was five. 



So weird. After having straight hair for a day and a half I realized that it's a good thing that God gave me curly hair-- I am too lazy to constantly brush my hair.

I also found this cool editing app called NOMO and it has this polaroid section so it's been fun capturing the more realistic side of my life with it.


Started community college + co-op classes

A more detailed post on my community college coming soon, but as you're reading this I'm actually on my way to my first class.

How was your month?

  5. Ahh, congrats on starting cc!! That's such an exciting time. I loved starting cc because it wasn't nearly as intimidating as I thought it was going to be. The smaller, homier feel to it made it so the switch wasn't as much of a shock.
    Cute elephant too <3

  7. Ooh, that coffee though. :D

    Lol, straight hair is definitely a struggle if you want to keep it smooth and tangle-free. It gets messed up five minutes after you brush it if you simply breathe. xD
