ROCKEFELLER CENTER | NYC


A couple of months ago, I went to New York to spend a weekend with my dear friends, the Kakacs. If you don't already know, Sam and I met via the blog world, became close friends, but didn't meet in real life for over a year. Our first time meeting was in the La Guardia airport when I flew in to visit Sam and her hubs. Ha! Call me crazy. We had the best time together, and if you have the chance to know the Kakacs, I highly suggest you don't pass on the opportunity. Sam and Tyler are some of the most thoughtful people I have ever known, loving Jesus and people so very well.

While I was visiting, they surprised me with a fun day of adventure in New York City, and we walked until our little legs could walk no more. On our list of sights to see was Rockefeller Center. We were secretly hoping to run into our BFF Jimmy (AKA Jimmy Fallon to those of you who don't know him. Wink.) Unfortunately he didn't have time to meet up with us, so we walked the city streets on our own. We enjoyed our time exploring, taking photos, shooing birds, watching ice skaters, and soaking up every moment.

FIVE THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME | VOL. 7


Do you ever read blogs and wish you knew fun facts about those bloggers like you would a best friend? I know I do. I started my "Five Things" series so you could get to know the random tidbits about my life! Here are five new things for you: Colorado Edition.

1 |  I just moved to Colorado.
Okay, so some of you might know this already, but I just moved from Tennessee to Colorado two weeks ago. I now live in Colorado Springs and work on the beautiful grounds of Glen Eyrie. In case you didn't know, Glen Eyrie is a castle. Since taking this job, I have been told my life is like a Disney movie.

2 | I learned about Glen Eyrie and Eagle Lake Camps on a family vacation.
You have probably heard me talk about my years spent at Eagle Lake Camp in Colorado. Well, my parents learned of said camp during a family vacation in Colorado in 2004. We came to tour Glen Eyrie and found a brochure about camp. My parents let me go to Eagle Lake for the next two summers, I worked on staff in 2011, and the rest is history.

3 | I am currently living with another family and taking on the big sister role.
Right now I am living with my best friend's family, which includes her younger brother and sister. I haven't had a sibling in a house with me for years, so it has been fun getting to take on the sister role again. We play games, watch movies, make jokes, and carpool together.

4 | I wish this weren't the rainiest May Colorado has ever seen.
I have spent some time in Colorado, and never has it ever rained this much. During my first week here after my move, it rained, flooded, hailed, and snowed. What? I know. It's crazy. It has since rained almost every day over the past two weeks. They don't tend to get this much rain here, and the native Coloradans are freaking out. ;) They wonder where there blue skies and golden sun have gone! Me too, Coloradans. Me too.

5 | I have never hiked a 14er.
Colorado is full of 14ers and it is on my bucket list to hike one. Once I get acclimated to the crazy thin air up here and the snow melts on the mountains, I'd like to give it a shot. Come with me?
