After writing a whole bunch of essays this week in preparation for a dreaded exam, I’m not feeling too terribly wordy. But since I always feel listy, that’s what I’m going to make to recap May. It’s going to be short.

april / the month in instagrams

April is a month best described in pictures.

So many wonderful things were squeezed into my 34 days at home… April was full and busy in the best way. There were coffee dates and lunch dates, in-n-out dates and yogurt dates with friends I consider more like family. There were trips to the City and days spent enjoying my own city. There were nights in watching Downton Abbey (I finally got into this!) and eating brownies, and nights out having dinners with family or going to college group at church.

And the biggest event of April… there was a wedding. My best friend got married and I was so proud, honored, thankful, and blessed to be a part of it. Caitie was the most beautiful bride, the venue was perfect, the rain stayed away, and we had the best evening. I was a bridesmaid for the first time too! Grant and Caitie had the best wedding party if I do say so myself… we’d all basically grown up together, so the dynamic was super fun. I don’t know if you’ve yet watched your best friend get married, but it’s a beautiful memory that will stay with me forever. Even now I’m smiling just thinking about it!

I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into the past month… there are several things I’ll be blogging about in the weeks to come :) It was just too hard to get everything together and write when April was going by so quickly!

currently.I didn’t want to go so many days without blogging, but sometimes it can’t be avoided. Like when you have a major test coming up and you’re doubting whether all the studying you’ve done leading up to it did you any good. What if somehow you completely missed everything important?

That’s how I felt all of last week as Human Geography loomed in front of me. But, test day came yesterday, and I passed. It’s hard to describe how that feels for me, though I have briefly written about it before.

To get back in the swing of things, here’s the abridged version of life currently. I haven’t posted one of these in quite some time!
