.begin again.


My favorite time of the year is almost here.  Autumn.  There are three leaves that have turned to a glorious burnt orange on a maple tree outside my window.  I'm pretty sure they are just there to tease me.

This is my first fall season in four years that I'm not returning to school with the rest of my fellow college students. 

Why? 

Well because I GRADUATED.  So this fall will be a whole new experience for me.  A brand new start in this place they call the Real World.  Trust me. It's scary. Stay in college, kids. Just kidding.  Kind of.

I'm very excited about this part of life.  Right now, only working part time, I'm given the gift of TIME.  Time to exercise (much needed), time to look for a design job, time to read, time to grow in my walk with the Lord, and time to spend with some of my favorite people.

Speaking of favorite people, here's one of them...

This is my cousin Laney.  

You can check out her blog here: http://lrutht.blogspot.com/.  She takes amazing pictures...and I'm not just saying that because I'm biased.  She's really talented.

We hiked miles and miles to take pictures.  Ok so we drove to a park.  Whatever.

Looking at these pictures, I am amazed at the beautiful young woman Laney has become.  She used to be this little girl that would cry because she couldn't keep up with her brothers and me (love you Laney), and now she's driving.

Eeek.

Just kidding Laney.  You are a fantastic driver....even though I've only been able to bring myself to ride with you once.  Don't worry.  I'll get used to it.  Someday. 


I love this girl.  She's not just my cousin.  She's a best friend.  She's a sister.

Oh and she's the one that told me I should start a blog, so I thought it was only fitting for the first post to be about her. :)

Later y'all.
