Hey there!

Sorry for being gone so long! The reason I haven't posted is because... well... I have been suffering from a serious case of writers block. The post ideas I have in mind don't seem to want to transfer from my brain into post form. ;) But here I am with an update for you!!

So, for the past few months my family has been traveling a lot. First it was Sukkot up in Missouri for two weeks (it was great by the way!!) Then we visited some friends in Louisiana for a weekend, and this week we are going up to Oklahoma to help out some friends of ours! Other than traveling, I have been cleaning houses with my mom. It doesn't pay much, but every little bit helps. :) I am still working at the library every week, and keeping up with school. I have a few sewing projects in motion, I finished two messenger bags so far, and have one left to sew! :) I also finished reading a really good book called When Breaks the Dawn by Janette Oke.
It is getting cold here!! As we speak it's about 43 degrees F outside... *shiver* What is the weather like where you're at?

My 15th birthday has come and gone a month ago, gosh! It doesn't seem like it could be a month already! Is it just me, or has this year totally flown by?
Well there's just one last thing, while up in Oklahoma we won't have internet access. So that means no posts for a while, again. :(
Thank you guys for being so patient with me, I appreciate it!

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. 
 And ye shall seek me, and find [me], when ye shall search for me with all your heart. ♥
Jeremiah 29:11-13



A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; Ecclesiastes 3:4

Shabbat Shalom!!



Well, I am back! My family traveled to Eminence Missouri for Sukkot, and had an awesome time! Now, I must apologize ahead of time for the lack of pictures, I was having too much fun to be bothered with a camera. So, though I regret to say it, I only have a couple of pictures to share. But! My friend Jenna, who was there in Eminence too, took loads and loads of pictures so just click here to look at all the lovely things we did. :) Here are the pictures I did get though. ;)

My favorite time of year

This is my favorite time of year! Why, you may ask? Well, because Sukkot is only a couple of days away!! And Sukkot is my favorite feast! So anyways, I just wanted to let you guys know that I won't be blogging until about the 22nd or so. Happy Sukkot, and remember that His banner over us is ♥.
