So it's been a couple of days but it's all settling in that I am 24. So weird! I was a fresh 22 when I moved to Nashville, and A LOT has happened in these last two years. I grow to love this city more and more every day and definitely call this place home.

When I look back on the last year specifically, it's scary to think how fast the time flies! I'm at a point now though where I truly love my job and the friends that the Lord has blessed me with. I'm excited to see what is in store for this upcoming year and cannot wait for the Lord to reveal where He wants to use me in the upcoming months.

It's been a year of unexpected challenges and growth and I'm grateful for where the Lord has me now. A year ago, I may have told you I would be moving, but it's always neat to see that His plan is bigger than mine. No matter how many times I try to plan out my life, I will always fail. He knows what is best, if only we always had the faith to entrust our entire life with Him. But it's a constant struggle and praise Him all the more for His grace and mercies each morning.

To sum it up, I am blessed beyond measure and have lived a wonderful life so far. I'm excited to see what He does next and to Him be the glory! And thanks to everyone who made my birthday so special :) I love y'all more than you know!

As I'm sure you've all heard, Nashville was hit was the 10th biggest flood in American history. It's hard to believe that we were just enjoying out trip to downtown on Saturday night, eating at a restaurant that is now underwater.

Catastrophic damage has been done to our beloved city-it's really hard to wrap my mind around it. People's homes are destroyed, some have lost their businesses, pets are missing. Not one person in Nashville can say that haven't been directly affected by this tragedy. Whether or not it affected their home directly, everyone knows someone who has lost everything.

Here's a couple of pictures that I took when heading to downtown Nashville yesterday to see the damage. Water was rising up around my feet while I was taking the pictures and is still continuing to do damage downtown. So please pray for this area and the lives of those who have been affected. It truly is a sad situation but at least we know the Lord is in control and has a master plan behind all of the tragedy. He is good.
