I Like This

It’s been far too long since my last blog. Turns out I’ve been pretty busy lately and it’s mostly all the GOOD kind of busy. For a long time I’ve been the kind of person that just wants to keep to myself and do my own thing but I feel like I’m finally getting more comfortable out in the world! Since my last post a lot has gone down.. I’ll try to do a quick recap.

  • It’s finally OFFICIALLY fall. (Isn’t it funny I posted so much about Fall before it even got here and now that it’s here I disappear from the blogosphere?)
  • Went to my Church’s Volunteer Tailgate Party and HAD. A. BLAST even in the RAIN!
  • Designed another postcard for my Church which always makes me feel so fulfilled and helpful!
  • My face paint!

  • Went to Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Williamsburg TWICE and had a BLAST both times despite laughing until near suffocation numerous times.
  • Had the opportunity to volunteer for a special event at my Church and it was an AMAZING experience. I had no idea what I was even going to be helping with when I decided to help but I am SO happy I did it. I played a role in helping a number of people out of 399 that spontaneously got Baptized over two Sundays at my church. I had chills practically the entire time. Such a powerful moment and so glad I could help out people who made that decision!
  • Made some really cute (and tasty!) Halloween treats for my Community Group snack!
  • My baby niece, Alysa, turned ONE YEAR OLD on October 17th! That miracle child is such a blessing and I love her so much!
  • I have suddenly become obsessed with K-Pop thanks to my little sister and have also started (barely) learning Korean as a result.
  • Joined a penpal website and now have some new snail mail penpals and I am also starting new friendships with people around the world.
  • I have taken on the responsibility of helping one such friend through a really rough time. Not really sure how much help I am, but I feel good for trying and also for using it as an opportunity to talk about Jesus and link them to some videos of my Church’s past services.
  • I’ve nearly hit the 70 pounds lost milestone in my weight loss (Less than 2 pounds away!).
  • Here are two pictures of me with my sisters after we got our faces painted at Howl-O-Scream!

    So there you have it! I also have a lot coming up too. Not only are the holidays right around the corner, but I’m going to a Pumpkin Carving Party next weekend and just really excited about the future. I don’t really know where this change in me has come from but I’m really enjoying being more social and having more fun! Hope you all are having an awesome Fall so far!
