November & Engagements

Can you believe that it's already November?! EEK :) Time for fall, changing leaves, and even snow (in states other than Texas)!

I swear this semester has just been flying by. Before I know it, I will be graduating from college (no complaints about that just yet) and starting my big girl life. What kind of job will I have? What kind of clothes will I wear to work? Will I truly love what I do? Will I choose the job God has intended for me to have? These questions are just some of the thousands that have crossed my mind these past couple months.

For other exciting news, my sister is engaged!!!! She's getting married in April, which seems soon, but I'm super excited for her big day and all the planning and crafting that it involves. On that note, a lot of other people I went to high school and college with are also getting engaged. I'm truly excited for all of these people, but that concept is honestly a little weird to me. My sister and Mark have been dating for 7 years, so not so weird. Peers my own age about to start their own families...weird! I'm not really sure why that is. Possibly because I'm not at that point in my life yet. Maybe it's because I don't have a boyfriend or because I still feel so young myself. Maybe it's because there's a huge world out there and I feel my husband is probably not in Texas. The possibilities are endless, but I must say it has taken me awhile to adjust to all of this news.

It's funny how stuff like that works out though. My mom was married at 21 so I always assumed I would be married at 21 or 22 too, but now that I am at that age, things are very different from what I expected. Guess that just goes to show that God's planning and our own will not always be the same. He's a funny man :)

So with school wrapping up and getting busier at the same time, and the holidays just around the corner, I hope y'all find time to relax and enjoy this beautiful Fall weather. For you coffee drinkers, drink a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks for me :)
