"There is a season for wildness 
and a season for settledness, and this is neither. 
This season is about becoming." 
-Shauna Niequist 

In this season, I'm discovering more about myself and the world than I ever imagined. It's a season of growth and digging deep for answers. Not to mention seizing these summer days before I start college classes in August.
 It's been a summer of walking unexplored streets, adventuring to random fields to do art, learning to cook, pulling out my sketchbook often (and accepting imperfections), hammocking in the mountains and at home, chasing sunsets, making white flour waffles in the mountains and serving them a la mode (because why not?), kayaking, watching tv shows too late and sleeping in a little, missing people, and getting up before the sun to watch it with friends over breakfast. It has honestly been an unusual summer, but I'm so thankful for all I've learned, both from quiet, contemplative hours coming down a mountain and from wisdom and encouragement of friends, young and old. The Lord has answered very specific prayers and built me up through the example of others, and I'm so excited for all the next school year will hold… when it gets here. I'm not kissing summer goodbye yet!
