The Best Of 2015

Is it shocking to anyone else that there are only a few more days of 2015?  This year, just like every other, has flown by.  This year has been pretty wonderful to me and has given me some pretty amazing memories and I wanted to include you in on this adventure!

In the beginning of the year I was fortunate enough to attend a semester at Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta California.  This experience was a growing one for sure! It was my first time living away from home and I found that it was a lot harder than I could have imagined it to be.  For about the first month I was very homesick but once I started to get closer to the people at school that feeling started to dwindle away, slowly I might add.  Basically, I was homesick the whole time but I learned how to deal with it while I was there.  I also learned that sometimes you have to push yourself out of your comfort zone and that doesn't come easy for a lot of people.  At CCBC I met some amazing people that I know I will remember forever if you would like to read up on some of my experiences at school you can Click Here to do so.  Here is one of the amazing sites my talented friend Lacey captured on our way to school.

Christmas Shopping and Great Friends

It is relieving yet sad to say that I am just about done with all of my Christmas shopping.  Every year I look forward to going to the shops and picking out or making that perfect gift for everyone on my list.  I think gift getting is definitely one of my love languages! 
Yesterday I went shopping for three white elephant gifts and I had a great friend to do it with! Isn't that just the best?! Shopping with a friend is probably one of my favorite things to do!

Oh Christmas Tree

It is finally that time when you see all the Christmas lights going up in neighborhoods, you hear Christmas music everywhere you go, and when the trees begin to go up!  Like most people, Christmas is my favorite time of year but it's not just Christmas day that I love, it's the leading up to that excites me just as much as the day itself does.  Decorating the tree is one of my favorite parts about Christmas.  There is just something about putting on a Christmas movie or music while putting up the tree that gets me in the true Christmas mood!

Christmas Gift Guide For Your Bestie

Sometimes buying a Christmas gift for someone you are so close to can be harder than you ever thought.  Every single year I have the same dilemma of not knowing what the heck I am getting for my peeps!  I have been in a store for hours trying to find that perfect gift for my best friend (or pretty much all of my friends) thinking that she is not going to like this, this isn't sentimental enough, this is too sentimental, Ive bought her a mug for like 5 years, and so on and so forth.  To help you and I prepare this year I thought I would put together a guide to help us!

My best friend and I can be opposite when it comes to gifts which is why it is so hard for me to shop for her.  I like sentimental gifts, candles, journals and endless amounts of coffee mugs, Rachel (my bestie) on the other hand would probably be happy with a gift card to Gap but that isn't much fun is it?! Somehow I have always managed to pull off a good Christmas gift for her.  Well lets get in to it shall we?

Francesca's: For The Girly Girl  
You can get things from clothes and accessories to great books and trinkets here.  It is one of Rachel's favorite stores!
