If You Have to Cry, Go Outside

In less than three days, I read Kelly Cutrone's book If You Have to Cry, Go Outside. Let me just say, Kelly Cutrone is one heck of a woman. Reading her experiences and how she got to where she is today is an amazing story.

I encourage every girl to get this book and read it. There is some very inspirational things in it. There is one quote from Kelly Cutrone in the book that really stuck out to me and if I could tell you one thing about If You Have to Cry, Go Outside it's this:

"The road to your dreams is sometimes dark, and it's sometimes magical, but The Wizard of Oz had one thing right: it's ultimately about the journey and the characters who accompany you on it, not about the destination."

Go and get a copy of this book. I promise, you will get something out of it.

I'm sorry!

I apologize for the lack of blogging this past week. I have been on Spring Break, and I was enjoying my time away from home and especially school work.

I also apologize for the many posts I will have in the next few days. I will start the 30 Day Challenge back up tomorrow, and fill you in on what's been going on with me lately.

So followers, get ready!! :)

30 Day Challenge: Day 16 & 17

I am bending the rules a little bit with my 30 Day Challenge, because days 16 and 17 would be the same for me so...

Days 16 & 17: A picture of someone who inspires you//A picture of someone who has made an impact on you recently

For those of you who don't know who this is, I bet you could guess and get it right. This is my mom, Susan! And yes I know, we look identical! haha! My mom is absolutely amazing!! I could not ask for a better mom! We are very close. She is one of the most caring people I know. She is a great person inside and out, and one day I hope to be just as great as a mother as she is to me.

Panama City Beach

Now that the weather has started to warm up, this past weekend I wanted to take advantage of it. So Elizabeth, John, and I went to Panama City Beach for the day this past Saturday. It was absolutely perfect!! We couldn't have asked for better weather. We were on the beach all afternoon laying out, listening to music, and played a little bit. Once the sun started to go down, we weren't ready to leave and since we were across the street from Pier Park, we decided to go there for a little bit. We wanted to eat somewhere new so we picked Guy Harvey's...delicious!! After we ate, we walked around and did a little shopping. It was the perfect way to end and perfect day! :)

30 Day Challenge: Day 15

Day 15: A picture of something you want to do before you die

This picture was taken somewhere along the Appalachian Trail. One day, I will hike the whole trail. If you are wondering, the Appalachian Trail is 2,181 miles and goes from the top of Georgia to Maine. Anyone that's reading this that knows me well, knows that I am an "outdoors-y" person. I love to be outdoors, which is why I feel like I have picked the perfect career for myself. This is a big goal I have set, but I know that I could do it.

30 Day Challenge: Day 14

Day 14: A picture of someone you could never imagine your life without

John and I have been together now for 8 1/2 months, and I don't know what I would do without him. He is my best friend. We met last summer when we were paired up together as partners for my summer job as an IMPACT Leader for Troy. We clicked instantly. He has been there for me when I needed someone to vent to, cry to, and even times when I simply just needed someone to be with me so I wasn't alone. He is amazing! :)
