Hey y’all! I haven’t posted in awhile for a variety of reasons that I’m about to explain. But before I do that I just want to say that I do this because I enjoy it, not because I have any obligation to do so or anything like that. So if I don’t feel like typing something up to post, I’m not going to. I do this for fun and I want it to always be fun, not feel like a chore. That being said, here’s an update on my life.


1. I GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL!!! I am now a Class of 2018 alum and I’m very excited to be able to say that. On May 26th I graduated from Abraham Lincoln High School along with 480 other students. I am proud of myself for making it this far but I know I can and will go farther. This is only the first of many great achievements.





2. I performed in my last ever dance recital. June 15th and 16th were 2 very long and emotional days for me. These were my last days with girls I’ve grown so close to, we’re like family. I am so thankful for each and every one of them, whether they’re a super mini, or a fellow senior and everything in between. Shoutout to my TDA family for being there for me, supporting me, and      welcoming me in.




3. June 17th marks the day my life changed. I moved cross country to Tampa, FL to live with my dad. I’ve been looking forward to this day for a year. I’m glad I can finally call Florida home but don’t get me wrong, I miss Iowa. However, it has been nice to go to the ocean every Sunday. Nothing in Iowa can compare to the beautiful beaches down here.

4. I just got back from a week at Disney World with one of my best friends, Victoria. I won’t say much on this topic since I have a trip report half typed all ready to post soon. I also posted a vlog on my youtube channel of Toy Story Land’s grand opening so go check that out!

5. In 2 weeks I leave again for Disney World, this time with Triniti again. We’ll be staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge and Bay Lake Tower. We’ll only be there for a few days but it’ll be great to see my girl Trin again!

6. A week after I get back from that trip, I LEAVE FOR 2 WEEKS IN EUROPE!!!!! I’ve never been so excited for a trip. I can’t believe it’s actually happening. My dad and his girlfriend, Victoria and her family, and I will be embarking on an 11-night northern European cruise aboard the Disney Magic, my favorite ship.

We leave from Dover, England, port in Amsterdam, Warnemunde (Berlin), Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, and Tallinn, then debark in Copenhagen. It’s going to be the trip of a lifetime and I’m so lucky to get to travel the world with my family and friends.

7. After I return from Europe, I get to start packing for college! This fall, I will be attending Southeastern University in Lakeland, FL. I will be majoring in Psychology with a minor in Children, youth, and family ministries. My roommate is wonderful and I’ve made some good friends already. I’m pumped for this next chapter in my life and to see what God has in store for me. I’m also excited for all of the God-centered opportunities offered at SEU such as SEU Conf. and plenty of missions trips.

So there you have it. There’s my life update. I hope that through college I can continue to blog because I truly do enjoy it. I also hope that I can stay more up to date with this instead of posting every few months. If you read this far, thank you, and if you’ve read my other posts and like to stay up to date on my life, let me know! Don’t forget to like and comment! Thank you for reading y’all!! 🙂
