it's been too long

i can't believe it has almost been an entire year since i last posted. i have missed blogging my thoughts and adventures, but thankfully i have kept in touch with everyone's blogs. so much has gone on over the past year and it is way too much to catch up on, but i will recap the highlights. 
 -i travelled back to africa this summer. it was a completely different experience than last year, but it       was just as rewarding and i can't wait to go back. 

-i started my senior year of college! it's hard to believe, but may '12 here i come! i will have my degree in elementary education and i can't wait to start teaching (i can blame this for part of the lack of posts ha.)

- i turned 21 over the summer (wooohooooo......not)! it wasn't any different than any other birthday, but i don't mind getting older, well not at this point anyways. 

-i went on a cruise with one of my greatest friends! we had a blast! i encourage everyone to go during the winter....so cheap and great weather!

-i got a kitten. his name is Winston.

-went to chicago and had the time of my life with haylee!

well as school is winding down (sort of?) i am excited to be blogging again and to be in touch with all my friends on here! God has been so good and so faithful in the last year and i am so excited to see what He has in store for the future!


  1. Glad you're back! I haven't posted in a while either, but reading your post made me want to start!

  2. Alana, it's so good to hear from you! i actually thought about you the other day because I made new t-shirts for Africa! I hope all is well! i hope you start writing again! :)
