J U L Y





July was lovely, I am sad to see it go. I didn't expect to have so much fun this month, but I did (which is a very good thing).

But what did I do this month? Is the question you're probably not asking.... however, I'll answer it anyway because I like looking back on these posts even if it's mostly unwanted and unpopular on this tiny blog. :P

I baked and tried to follow a Bob Ross tutorial with some dear friends. 




We made a lot of "happy little accidents" but it was super fun.

A few friends and I decided to start a writing club.
 It's called The Inklings 1.4, the 1.4 reference is an inside thing, but if anyone gets the main reference let me know!
 We have a lot of obscure rules, code names, and apparently, our group is supposed to be hush hush???? I'm not doing a good job of that right now, but most likely y'all don't know the other members. :P  


I drank a lot of ice coffee.

& dabbled in watercolor, I've missed it so. <3











CAMP. It was so, so good!! We studied so much, the lessons and sermons were amazing, and the fellowship was fantastic!


Honestly, making more Chrisitan friends was awesome. I really needed strong, modest, and young people my age who are obeying and striving to obey the bible in my life, and thanks to this camp, I am in touch with many more sweet sisters and I got to meet many lovely brothers. <3



my siblings came for an afternoon, and my little brother was famous among the girls


It was so nice to unplug and really focus on God that week as well as making lasting friendships with my brothers and sisters in Christ. 



you know when you have those people in your life that just make you smile?
Meet some of those people. :) 







 I made a  tie-dye shirt at camp and my super talented friend lettered it for me, and ACK! I love it!!! 
I also had to climb up a tree to put a baby bird back. It was scary, ngl.





Wondering how I haven't been kicked out of my group chats...

Also being slightly mean to my poor friend, but apparently we're still friends?? So it's all good. :P 



i love spiders so much

Copying Ivie and taking photos at the library. 





 My little brother, Shayne, started a blog.

You can follow it here, if you want to make the dude's day, also his lessons are really good! I overhear him teaching my siblings sometimes and I listen in, I can't wait to read his future content.

How was your month?

      I usually take photos on my camera (a canon rebel T6), but since I don't always have my nice camera on my 24/7, I use vsco to try to make up for my bad phone pictures.

      Awww, thanks! I'm glad to hear that. <3

      I hope next month is amazing for you!

  6. July was (and still is) crazy busy for me. But sounds like you've had a lovely month, and I agree - getting to spend a week focusing on God and talking with fellow Christians is such a good thing. My turn is coming up in August at a church conference I go to every year.

    YOUR BROTHER HAS A BLOG!!

    (Also, your art is AMAZING!!!)

  12. I realized the other day that I haven't commented on anything of yours in forever. I swear I wasn't doing it on purpose!


    The pictures in this post are so pretty! And you're wayyyy better at watercolors than me. I do them sometimes and enjoy it, but I'm better at acrylics. Your July sounds like it was fun.

    1. It's fine, I've neglected your blog as well. Life just gets so busy. :/

      Aww, thank you! I prefer watercolor, I'm not the best at acrylics (as seen in my mountain painting, lol) I do enjoy both however. :)

      Mine was! I hope you have a good August. <3
