Thinking out loud 7/7/16: Life as of late

July 7, 2016 in About Me

Hi guys and happy Thursday! I hope you have all been enjoying your weeks so far. 🙂 Today I am going to be linking up with Amanda and Kristy to be sharing some thoughts on my mind and some rambles. And today I am actually thinking out loud as it’s a video! So I hope you enjoy this and my inability to make contact with the camera lolzz (eye contact is my weakness).

In this video I’m ramblin’ about work, gratitude, some exciting things coming up (like my yoga retreat this weekend and my relatives from Florida visitng), and just life in general! There is so much to smile about and God is so so good. <3

Thank you all for watching and being so incredible!!

Now tell me: 

What is one thing you’ve been feeling extra grateful for? 

One thing exciting coming up in the month of July? 

Have a great day guys!

Sending my love as always.

    You are toooooo cute. And don’t worry, I have issues with eye contact as well in videos. My editor actually wants me to do some live broadcasts for the recipes I am making for her and I’m like nooooooooo lol I don’t think she fully understands my camera shyness!

    LYSS, I need to learn from you. I love that you are doing this because God gifted you in this way. I honestly have seen how God blesses the humble. God loves humility, and I see it in you. You are teaching me humility, because I struggle with pride. Seeing God’s glorious purpose in everything is SOOO incredible, and I’m learning that from you.

    Thank you. This humbled me today to hear this.

    I love your blog. I love how God has used you in my life. God works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform. <3

    I just started to rain and I am very grateful for that. All day it felt like I was breathing in a swamp and all I could think about was wringing out the clouds. We need some rain for the brown grass and crops.
    I’m excited to enjoy our clean and organized kitchen and house on my next day off. It sound small, but I am more relaxed knowing the place I live is finally settled in.

      Aw I am so glad you finally got some rain! It has seriously been so humid where I am, we could definitely use some rain too. Hoping you have a wonderful Friday Ellie!
