Loving: college football, NFL and fantasy football. 

Reading: Emily Giffin "Where we belong"

Watching: X Factor. 2 Broke Girls and Football (duh). 

Anticipating: Birthdays, babies, thanksgiving and christmas. 

Listening to: Still not over Carrie Underwood's Blown Away album. 

Planning: A surprise for Adam for our two year anniversary :) 

Working on: Being as good of a friend, daughter, sister and girlfriend as all those counterparts are to me. 

Struggling with: Being homesick. It's weird, but recently its been very active. 

Favorite quote: In French, you don't really say "I mis you." You say "tu no masques,' which is closer to "you are missing from me." I love that. "You are missing from me." You are a part of me, you are essential to my being. You are like a limb, or an organ, or blood. I cannot function without you. 

Explore. Dream. Discover.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."- Mark Twain
I realize this is one of the most over said and overused quotes in history, but today it struck a cord with me and I really love it. But instead of 20 years, I'm going to use 3 years. Three years ago, I was debating law school. Now, here I am 8 months from graduation. Three years ago, I was struggling, drowning, if you may to find who i am. Today, I'm confident that I've found me and the niche where I belong. Three years ago, I was struggling over a breakup. Today, I'm in the relationship I feel God set aside just for me. Three years ago. I was losing sight of my dreams. And today? Today, I've only begun to reach and explore all my dreams. Sometimes I have to do a little compare/contrast to see how far I've come, and where I've come from. There are so many possibilities out there if we just believe in ourselves, dream a little more and to always dig a little deeper. We must never forget to keep exploring, keep dreaming and to keep discovering. Thanks Mark Twain, today you had just the words I needed to hear.

Never forget.

Today, we remember that day, 11 years ago. Today, we remember those who died. Today, we remember those who tried to save others and in turn lost themselves. Today, we remember not the hate of those who committed this act, but we remember the love shown around the country and the world embracing those who lost. Today, we remember the strength of America. 
Today, we remember September 11, 2001. 
A wise word from GW, 11 years ago....
"Tonight, I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security has been threatened. And I pray they will be comforted by a power greater than any of us, spoken through the ages in Psalm 23: "Even though I was through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me."
 -President George W. Bush; September 11, 2011

Happy September!

So, school started about a month ago and life has been crazy. So crazy that I have had NO time to blog or do anything so... this post is just a picture post of all the fun things that have gone on in the last couple weeks. I hope everyone's having a great September! 
1. Husker game with the girls! 2. Throwback Thursday with Coti. 
3. Celebrating Lyndsey and Kyle's engagement. 4. O'Conner's with B. 
5. Friendship bracelets. 6. Adam, age 3 and too damn cute. 
7. Repping my scarf from Amber's giveaway! (follow her!)
8. "In French, you don't really say "I miss you." You say "tu no masques," which is closer to "you are missing from me." I love that. "You are missing from me." You are a part of me, you are essential to my being. You are like a limb, or an organ, or blood. I cannot function without you.
