    Yay birthday month coming soon! Ahh it’s scary that we won’t be teenagers anymore. Time is flying by so fast. My favourite song is from the new Hillsong album called ‘what a beautiful name.’ It made me cry.

    I love snacking on dry cereal – especially when mixed with raisins or nuts in kind of a trail mix style snack!

    Hooray for your birthday month coming up!
