The Little Kid In Me

These few weeks have been filled with the best kids I know! I have the amazing privilege of being able to come back and help my high school with their plays, and this spring play was a ground breaking experiment... I got the title of Prop Master. Talk about scary. 
It was such a blessing to see kids share their love for both God and theatre up there on the stage.

Completely humbling as well as reminded you of the person you once were and how that was you in that very position.

These kiddos brought out the kid in me, the theatre geek, and the adoring fan. So many of them I had the honor of once sharing the stage with them, and to see them shine in each role they had... it was so humbling to take a chance to learn from them. To have that genuine joy of the Lord and theatre in all you do to prepare for the bumpy road ahead.

I so honored to call them my friends. I can't wait to see how God uses them in the future.

I can't wait to share future stories of these lovely kids in the future. The impact they have on each others lives as well as mine is amazing. I pray that they keep shining for the Lord.

Fly, Fly Away

“… for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, ‘Oh, why can't you remain like this for ever!’"

If there is one thing that seems to be a reoccurring theme in my life right now other than dwelling in the possibilities it's the fact that our time is precious and doesn't last forever. Eventually... we all must fly away. And all those memories well to quote Cinderella "all your life you'll dream of this lovely, lovely night." 

I'm a rather impatient person at times, and it's really hitting home lately. I hate the feeling of the unknown and waiting around for something that could never come. That's when faith comes in, that when the time comes I will make the right decision and God will also help with guiding me through the darkness. 

So here's to the next three years of the unknown and maybe even more...

Wishful Thinking

Today, despite the wishes that these days could last forever, marked the end of my sophomore year of college. What a ride! It was an amazing year, full of things I could go on and on about but I will save that. Basically I just am feeling sentimental and thankful for what I can call my sophomore year of college. 'Til next year school.

Sophomore Year Snapshots

Let's recap shall we?

Some of the best, challenging, and interesting moments of my sophomore year of college. (in no particular order)

I apologize for the amount of photos AND in two parts but it's been one wild ride so far.


Surprise Birthday Party with all my darling, dearest friends to show their love and support for me. A night full of Tarzan music, ballet dancing, murder in the dark, the cup game, catching up with old friends, and staying up til the wee hours of the morning performing for each other. It was a birthday that couldn't be more... me. 

2. Manhattan I've Prepared For You. Twice in one year!? I also can say, after going with two people that "are not city people." I am 100% a city person, I can not wait to be living there one day making the most of it. As it says... manhattan I've prepared for you.  

3. Auditions. I remember this day like it was yesterday. My first college theatre audition, I got a callback for Leaving Iowa... which I didn't know til the day of. I was so ecstatic when I received that phone call haha. I also can't believe the amount of support my friends showed me and especially on spring semesters which was only the best night of my life. Back to that soon...

4. That Time My Best Friend Was A Star. I will never forget opening night and just basically wanting to brag to everyone that my best friend was the pig, voice of the giant, and Cinderella's actual mother. Couldn't be more proud and I can't wait to see what God does with her insane talent in the future!

5. Coffee Dates. Rather it's with a good friend, a second date after a blind date, or some quiet time to you and your thoughts... coffee doesn't disappoint. Well maybe in the second reason, but that wasn't the coffees fault.

6. At Last I See The Light. I've not been one to lay in the grass and read but my goodness have I done it a lot this semester. As well I obviously read for my sophomore hearing and getting that done, even though I did not pass, it was a learning experience. Oddly enough as well as a confidence booster. I can do this!

7. ...I'm Way Behind In History... Now the a*teens may have wrote about trouble in History but they never took Donna Donald for History. Although that class kicked me in shape, I am glad I can say I somehow survived the dreaded class.

8. Scaremare. What is better than a bunch of theatre majors, a creepy house, and a pathway leading to the house full of clowns AND chainsaws. Nothing.

9. We'll Take A Cup Of Kindness Yet. Nothing better than spending a pre New Years Eve with your closest friends. Between the long God talks, the skits, food, and Moulin Rouge.... i don't think any other New Years Eve could top that ;)

10. FEELINGS. GUYS. GUYS. I got my first mainstage dance callback this semester for the amazing show Carousel. Such a blessing it was. It was beyond scary though, dancing with all these beautiful ballerinas... and then there was me haha. 

11. Throw Some Glitter. How many people can say they had a paint fight with their best friends while throwing glitter at each other. And making it look like your bleeding pink down your neck.... One of those memories you will just want to tell your kids right?

 12. Perks Of Having Friends That Work At Salons. Thank goodness for good friends that help you out of a jam when it comes to your hair. Carousel opening night (which was hard in itself) and here I felt super lame. But I didn't look it thanks to Lauren ;) 

12. Dream A Little Dream. Getting your headshots done is an amazing experience for many reasons. A) You feel beautiful. I mean your basically getting glamour shots but with your natural beauty. B) You totally feel like a model. C) It's a surreal moment, your getting headshots so that you can start using them for auditions and the real world. HOW DID I GET SO LUCKY!

13. MEETING LAURA OSNES. GUYS. GUYS. Not only did I get to see the AMAZING show Cinderella on broadway but after... I met Cinderella herself. I still can't believe I met my biggest inspiration! The picture in itself is horrible... considering I was crying haha.

14. Cheesecake. I finally had Roxy's cheesecake and can now never eat another single piece of cheesecake ever again.

15. Best Friends. I am so thankful for this girl and what she means to me. Her wisdom, support, and friendship is exactly what keeps me going at times.
