Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in GOD's sight.

1 Peter 3:3-4

Today is Thanksgiving. I have been thinking lots lately of how fortunate I really am. God has blessed me beyond what I deserve, that is for sure. One thing that I am incredibly blessed with is my family.

 My stepbrother, me, and my sister.
 Me, my dad, and my step mom.
My sister and I

Me, my mom, and my sister
My cousin Morgan and I
Most of you know my family situation. When I was little my parents got a divorce. Since I was young when it happened I don't remember much. In elementary and even some early middle school I had rough days where I just wished my parents would get married to each other again so I could have a "normal" life. Right now I can honestly say I love where my life is. I have two families that would do anything for me and for that I am incredibly thankful. My life is different that most but it is a part of me now and I wouldn't change it for anything! I absolutely love spending time with my family!! We always have soo much fun and make incredible memories! Another thing I couldn't live without is my friends!

My friends are a huge part of my life. I talk to them every day and there is nooo way I could survive without them! I have to say, I think I have the best friends ever. They are always there for me with an open ear and sometimes I really need that. Love you all and so glad you are all in my life!!

Another thing I am extremely thankful for is our new home! My mom and Step-dad just bought a GORGEOUS house just on the other side of town.

This place is so gorgeous! We are still living in the city but I feel like we are in the country because our backyard is very wooded. It is a great quiet place that you can go out and just have time to yourself. It is so great! Our neighbors are the best too! We've met some of them and we've already been invited to neighborhood get together's! I love it here. I don't want to post to many pictures of the house because that will have its own post in the near future. :)

Hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and eat lots! I am very thankful for all of you followers! Safe travels!

Acceptance: the act of taking or receiving something offered.

I think many people in this world, especially girls, have major acceptance issues. I think many of us think we need to have flawless, makeup full faces, skinny bodies, expensive clothing, and hair that has been died to look good. Hahaha, okay lets come back to earth here and put our heads back on straight!! For example:
Now, don't take this the wrong way. I am not saying Selena Gomez is fake or anything of that sort! But I am willing to bed that many of you wish you looked like her. Yes, she is pretty and all of that but you don't have to be famous or have someone else do your makeup for you in order to look pretty! Look at this girl...

Both the girls SUPER adorable girls, just in there own ways!! I guess what I'm trying to tell you is, embrace your own natural beauty. I've watched girls that between classes go and "freshen up" their makeup, hair, and perfumes. I think this world would be extremely different if makeup had never been invented. Think about it, Adam and Eve in the beginning of time had nothing! Literally, no clothes no makeup, nothin! Now I'm not saying just go everywhere naked because I'm pretty sure you can actually get arrested for that but you don't need expensive stuff to be cute. A lot of my friends wear little to no make-up and they are some of the cutest people I know!!
Next time you think to yourself "Why is she so much prettier than I?" Stop right there and tell yourself how beautiful YOU are! I never want to hear you compare yourself to that popular girl in school or tell yourself your not as good because guys, you are JUST as good as them! Don't believe me? Well, ask God. I know that's what he'd tell you :)

Thanks for reading,

After considering restarted the ol' blog up I had lots of questions for myself. Am I going to be commited enough? What will I post about? Will people even read my blog? Are my posts benifial to my readers? I then put a post up on Instagram asking my IG followers if they would read should I start again. I got a hit from them and said what the heck, why not?!

I have never wanted to stop blogging. It was always something fun to do. A stress reliever in a way. It let me put my opinion out on lots of things, and I always felt comfortable telling you all my life. I want it to be that way again. I want to come to my blog and post encouraging things! I know its a dream, and probably a stretch, but its the truth. I want to be here and help you girls with whatever you need!

I am posting about this because I want you to know that if you want me to post about something and are open to my opinion, I would love to post about it for you!! I'm not going to say that I have all the brains and know everything but I'll tell you what I do know. You girls make my day with your super sweet comments and I would love to help each and every one of you if needed. You can always feel free to comment it on any of my posts or email it to me (

On another note, my comments are moderated which means I have to approve of them before they can be posted on my blog. I don't want it to scare you, it is just something that I want to do! With that said, if you want to comment a request but don't want it posted just write in big capital letters "do not post" and I will read it and delete it! No one has posted anything bad on here I just have them moderated so we don't have to worry about any of that happening. :)

Hope you are having a great week so far and I am looking forward to many more posts and all of your comments!

Fresh Start

Hey Strangers!!

It has been waaaay to long since I have blogged! After missing a couple of weeks I just ended my blog because I was very discouraged. Recently I have been getting back into the swing of things and have started reading blogs again. Then I realised how much I missed writing on here and getting your girls' opinion and advice! Soo.. With your support, I want to get back in the loop and write weekly again. What do you think? Would you read? I have lots to write about, after all it has been 6 months since my last post. SIX months!! That is absolutely crazy.. So what do you say, new beginning?

Here's to the restart of SLTDQ!
