Currently July 2016

July 28, 2016 in About Me

Happy Thursday babes!! How is it already the end of July?! So crazy huh! Anyways, going to be doing a currently post today so let’s get started!

Current favorite song

Atlas Hands- Benjamin Francis Leftwich

Current favorite tv show

The secret life of the American teenager. Ya… I know lol. My friend convinced me to watch this show again and now I’m hooked. Also can we take a second to just take in the size of Ben’s Adam’s apple… Lol

Current favorite food 

These Perfect Bars!! They are seriously SO good! The almond butter and peanut butter ones are my fave!

Current excitement

I’m going on a church retreat this Thursday night till Sunday! While I won’t have my phone and won’t be able to connect with all of you, I am excited to get to connect with God more and my friends that are going/ the new friends I’m going to meet!

Current favorite drink 

Coffee (that’s a given) but also lemon water and kombucha! Always loving the booch 🙂

Current stressor

I can’t believe I’m headed back to college at the end of August. It does bring a little bit of stress and anxiety which I think is normal, but I just gotta trust God and know everything will work out!

Current obsession 

Necklaces! My mom always finds cute ones from thrift stores that are super cheap 🙂 she rocks!

Currently smiling about 

This body love giveaway I’m doing with some gals on Instagram!! I’m just so grateful for these opportunities I’ve been given lately. <3

Current procrastination 

Right now it’s packing for the weekend!

Current thing bringing me peace 

My friends, family, dog, God, (the obvious ones),  my journal, and yoga! Journaling always brings me back to a better frame of mind and yoga has the ability to help me stay mindful and present in the moment.

Current favorite clothing item

This shirt from the Instagrammer @thehungryclementine!  

That’s it for today guys- I’ll be off Thursday night- Sunday afternoon. I’ll miss y’all mucho but I’ll be back!!

Now tell me: 

What is one thing bringing you peace in your life? 

Sending alll my love to you guys!! <3 xoxo

    One thing bringing me peace: being back home with my family. <3

    Isn’t it amazing how the simplest things can bring peace and the most amazing thing is that God’s presence, God’s love brings the PERFECT peace, that heavenly peace that you can’t even explain. <3 I hope the church retreat goes so well beautiful girl, and maybe you'll wear that shirt? 🙂 I really love that shirt. That is balance, right there. Thank you for doing the Body Love Giveaway. It's such a unique idea and so needed on Instagram. Current things bringing me peace: Listening to sermons, meditating on Scripture, spending time with family, baking, and going on walks and breathing in morning air…

    Spending time with friends has been giving me a lot of peace lately. That feeling of just knowing that your friends and family love you no matter what is pretty special. Have fun on your retreat! I hope it’s amazing. I’ve been on a few retreats and helped lead a few retreats and I always get something wonderful out of the experience. Much love girly! <3
