We are almost completely done with the first month of 2013 and I still have yet to recap. Silly me. Highlights of 2012...

-Joining the 21st century by buying my first iPhone.
-Disney World for spring break.
-Watching some of my best friend graduate high school.
-Experiencing Camp Barnabas for the first time.
-CAMP with rbcstudents.
-A fabulous trip to Chicago.
-CAMP reunion.
-Leadership Summit.
-Starting my first day of high school.
-My 17th birthday.
-Winter Retreat.
-Christmas at Remingtons.
-Cutting my hair short.
-Ringing in a new year.

The most important thing that came from 2012 though was the way I grew in Christ. It has been incredible and it's still a day to day journey, but the pain has been so worth it. I'm so grateful for the friendships that have been strengthened and the new ones that have been formed. I can't wait to see what 2013 brings!

It's been awhile.

A lovely, short, sweet Christmas break was just what this girl needed.

Some crazy, painful, bittersweet, exciting things have happened in my life the past six months or so, and I'm so blessed to have amazing friends to experience those things with.

Our youth pastor, Nate, announced his resignation at the end of December and his last day on staff will be January 13th. As sad as we are to see them go, we are so excited for the Bocks and for what lies ahead of them!

The second semester of school is now two days underway, and I have around ninety days of school left. That is totally doable. Auditions for How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying are coming up soon, so that's exciting. It' hard to believe that this is my last semester of high school.

This has been short and sweet, mostly because I'm extremely exhausted, so I'm signing off. Have a great weekend!
