LET ME EXPLAIN

explain

It’s not something you just know, or feel automatically.

You don’t know its there till you’re calling a friend at 3 in the morning, on the verge of tears.

She asks you what’s wrong, sensing something the moment you say hello.

It’s nothing you say, hoping the louder and more confidently you say it, the less real it will become.

How do you explain to someone that school’s great, family’s great, hell life’s pretty dang great, but something else, small but present is building within you.

 

You refuse to say it because voicing it, saying it out loud might make it that much realer.

But what if voicing it saves you.

What if explaining the broken pieces within you brings them back together again.

So, after the third nudge from your friend you realize it’s time.

Time to save you.

With a voice just barely above a whisper, you sigh and mumble,

“Let me explain.”

WEEKEND RECAP: BACHELORETTE PARTY TAKES AUSTIN

weekend recap

Holla! HOWDY, HOWDY.

Giving you oh so Texas vibes with my spanish and country greeting LOL.

Coming back at you babes with regenerated energy because I’m so freaking excited to chat with you guys about my trip to Austin. I had so much fun and getting to celebrate my girlfriend Jules’ bach party was the best part of it all.

You guys, Austin did me so good.

I ate good food. Drank yummy drinks (mostly took shots, but I did have some delicious champagne; mixed in with raspberry lemonade). Got to rock my swimsuits for basically three days straight. Essentially, getting to live my best life in a matter of a weekend.

Saying Austin did me some good is an understatement because it did me so well babes. Eeek.

final hoorah

Happy Sunday babes.

Did someone say something about a final hoorah? I can’t believe the last Sunday in July is finally here. It feels like just yesterday, I was introducing you guys to the series. Since then, I have spent weeks sharing my faith with you guys and I have loved every single minute of it. Reconnecting with my faith has been so monumental for me in my walk with Christ. I can only hope that as much as I have benefited, y’all have as well.

STORYTIME WITH THELMS: FIRST DATE BLUES

first date

Hi babes! Happy freaking Thursday!

I’m over enthused (if you couldn’t tell), but that’s because it’s pretty much the weekend! Well at least for me it is. I don’t have class on Fridays, so I look at Thursdays as the official start to my weekend.

Before kicking back in bed and savoring the idea that I’m not waking up at the crack of ass for school, I decided to do a little story time with you babes tonight.
