Does everything happen for a reason?
I have always been a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. In life things pop up and change the entire course of your life. Sometimes good or bad, it can change how you look at things in your life. Lately, I have been questioning myself “Does everything really happen for a reason?” a lot. I don’t know why but it seems like a lot of different things have turned out completely different than I would have ever dreamed them to. If it’s not one thing it’s another thing that happens to completely show me what I thought was different. I have began to wonder if these things happen to keep me on my feet and not to get bored in life. It never ceases to amaze me that when these “shocker moments” happen in life everything works out for the good. So yes, after everything that I’ve been through lately I can say that everything does happen for a reason. I’m a firm believer in it and even the Bible tells us that to:)
-Romans 8:28-And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
& She said I double dare you…
I double dare YOU, to live your life to the absolute limit with no regrets at all. Sounds easy doesn’t it? Well, think again. It’s one of the hardest things you will ever have to do in your entire life. I double dare you to take a leap of faith and let things happen the way they are meant to be. If anything this summer I’ve learned this. Elizabeth & I double dared ourselves this summer to doing absolute crazy, adventurous,& life changing things. We did more than this. By taking on this simple challenge we learned so much about ourselves that we will keep with us forever. One simple challenge changed who we are today. We took risks, loved like crazy, cried like babies, became more than sisters, trusted God, and made friends to last us a lifetime. These are just some of the many things that we did this summer. So next time. I double dare you to take that step and get out of your comfort zone. I double dare you to learn how to love someone. I double dare you to forgive, forget, and move on. I double dare you to take a risk. Do something that you would never imagine doing, EVER! Sometimes these times are the best and the ones that you’ll remember forever. This summer i made memories that I’ll never forget and i wouldn’t change anything about it, but it wouldn’t have happened if we’d never would have double dared ourselves.
To all the memories we’ve made this summer. I love you sista!:)
So now..I double dare you, what will you do to change your life?
The beginning of the end…
Kindergarten has come and gone. It feels like yesterday that i was walking into Mrs. Blankenships classroom to start what would be the best years of my life. Little did i know it would be the beginning of thousands of memories in my lifetime.

Class of 2012
Well, here goes nothing. It’s our last year of highschool and the beginning of becoming adults. As scary as it sounds, it’s our time to face the world. We have 279 days, 21 hours, 4 mins, and 38 seconds until we walk across the stage as graduates. Time is going to fly between now and then, so here’s to begin making the last 1,000 memories as an immature, forgetful, daring, and outrageous teenager.
