The Head and the Heart

     Josh gave me this absolutely beautiful anatomically correct heart necklace from this etsy shop for Christmas/our anniversary, and I can't get over how perfect it is. It's extremely detailed and has such a nice weight to's just heavy enough that I get a little remember that it's there every once in a while, which can be very comforting. I've noticed recently that even though I have a LOT of jewelry, the pieces I wear on a daily basis have all been given to me by the people I love the most. Knowing that the people you care about gave something to you because they care about you back just makes things so much more meaningful and beautiful.

     I also got The Head and the Heart's album in my stocking and I've been listening to it almost nonstop since! I love the entire thing, but Rivers and Roads in particular has a special place in my heart, especially with everything that's changed in the past year or so. It's amazing to think that in just a little over 24 hours, this year will be gone. So much is different, but there's also a lot that hasn't really changed at all. I think I need to take some time to think about what I've accomplished and what I need to work on while I have some time to myself.

I hope you're all doing well!

Four Years

For four years today, Josh and I have been together. We're young and we fight and are sometimes incredibly stupid, but I cannot say anything more truthfully than that we are who we are in large part because of each other. We met in our freshman year of high school and now we're freshman in college - we've grown up together, and we're continuing to learn. Josh has been with me through the hardest times of my life. He has comforted me and given me the sometimes painful wake up calls I've needed. He helps me find my courage. He makes me laugh. There's no one who knows me quite as well as he does, and I know that whatever happens in the future, he will always have a place in my heart and my memories that no one else could possibly fill. I'm so lucky to have had these four years with such an amazing person.

Below are a few pictures, ranging from the first photo ever captured of us (I was extremely camera shy and nervous), to prom, to Christmas two days ago - from clean shaven to bearded Josh and long  to short-haired me. Neither of us are the same person we were when we met, but I like to think that we've grown into ourselves with each other's help.

If you're reading this, Happy Anniversary, Josh!

I love you very much.


(P.S. - I'm sorry for the extreme amounts of cheesiness. I really couldn't help it! :) )

Wasted Hours

I can't quite describe how I've been feeling lately, so I'll just let this song explain it for me (at least half of the way I feel). It does it much better than I can.

But on the happier side, I am officially done with my first semester of college, I'm home for break, and Christmas is in less than a week! It's so good to be back with my friends and my family and my beautiful home.

And I have a new video up as well!

See you guys soon.
