I'm In Love With Amelia Island

Last month, I took a day and drove up the A1A (yes, the same one from Ice, Ice, Baby, just not in Miami) to Amelia Island. The drive itself was gorgeous, and really easy from here. I spent the majority of the day exploring historic downtown Fernandina and just fell in love with it!

The New Girl in Town (and other updates from Jax)

Almost 2 months. I can't believe I've been in Jacksonville for almost 2 months already! You know what's funny? It's funny how quickly you forget what it looks like to be the new girl in town once you actually start making friends and having a social life.

Catching Up (part 2)

The GRAND. OLE. OPRY.

After 2 years in Nashville with no involvement in Young Life, I started praying for the Lord to provide an opportunity for me to get back into the world of YL. Within the next 2 weeks, he answered that prayer in a big way! (You can read about THAT, right here.)
One of the biggest things the Lord did, when he punted me back into Young Life, was putting me on a summer assignment, even though I'm not on staff! That happened something like this...

15 Minutes In The Magic Kingdom

Ha! What a title! Let me tell you that story...

It's a well documented fact that I love a quick trip to Florida in the spring. I used to go to Tampa to visit my grandparents at Spring Training for the Yankees every year in college. This year, I went down to Florida for a long weekend, and even went to a spring training game, but it went a little differently than it ever had before.
