What I Miss About Adolescence:

Sleep Overs. Photography Class. My 10th Grade History Teacher. My Posse (friends). First Baptist Youth Group. Military Ball. First Love. Yearbook Signing. Summer Vacation. Friday Morning Breakfastes with my Mother. Being Color Guard Commander. The Used Book Store. London. Christmas Caroling.

What I Miss About College:

First Taste of Freedom. Late Night Donut Runs. Playing Hooky. Volunteering at Hearts Tutoring Center. Being a Part of a Book Club that Never Read the Books. Dr. Roth's Lectures. Hunch Punch. Falling in Love with my Husband. Israel. My Pink Dorm Room. Earning my Nickname, Hofo. Competitive Board Games. The 5th Floor Kincannon Misfits. Building Ginger Bread Houses in February.

What I Love About Now:

Learning What it Means to Be a Wife. Cuddling with my Golden. Getting a Master's Degree. Being Financially Independent. Conquering my Freeway Fear. Living One Mile from the Beach. Friday Night Dinners. Making New Friends. Living in California without Losing my Southern Identity. Working with Wonderful Children. Knowing that My Life Turned Out so Much Richer than I Could Have Ever Imagined.


  1. I love the progression that has taken place over the years! How fun! You made me think of the things I miss too.

  2. I think I might actually have to do this post because I really related to a TON of these kinda things :) Thanks for reminding me boo! :)


I love comments, and I always read my comments. But sometimes I make a mental note to go comment back on your blog, and then forget to (Even if I’m an avid read of your blog, whoops). Since I'm so bad about this, I will mostly reply to comments in my comment section, so please check back! If you have something pressing to talk to me about you can e-mail me at
