I'm the messiest eater...

I'm the messiest eater in the history of ever.

Yesterday, I spilled coffee and marshmallows down the front of my shirt.

I wore it backwards all day.

Too Many Candles

According to AP, the word "girl" stopped applying to me two years ago.
As of 6:45 tonight, the word "teenager" can no longer be used either.

I turned twenty.

Can you believe how many candles there were on my cake?

How is this possible?

Something New

When I was little, the phrase "back to school" meant shopping for school supplies.

It meant begging for the 64-pack of Crayola crayons.
It meant packing my backpack days in advance.
It meant laying my clothes out the night before.

Today, I'm back at school, and it means something totally different.

It means loading our van with textbooks, computer gear, and clean laundry.
It means finding my Asbury I.D. and putting the house-key away in a drawer.

It means saying hello...

and saying good-bye.

It means bracing myself for the stress of a new semester...

And getting excited for the crazy nights like these:

And it means something more, something I can't quite put into words. It means something exciting and terrifying and wonderful.

It means something new.
