Photoshoot // Bethany

The other day Bethany and I ventured out to get some new photos for her. We found this really cool-looking church building for our background. Thanks so much for letting me take pictures of you, Bethany! Love you, sister! <3

Liebster Blog Award

I was tagged a while ago - Thanks Kaitlyn! =))



The Rules:
-Link back to the person that tagged you 
-Answer the eleven questions.
-Tag eleven bloggers, and let them know you tagged them.
-Ask your tagged bloggers eleven questions.

1: What is your favorite hobby? My favorite hobby...only one? I have so many favorite hobbies. One of them is reading. I really like reading. A lot. 

2: What does your first name mean? My first name is a variation on the Greek word "Charis" which means grace. In fact, I was almost named Charis. 
3: What is your favorite family memory? My favorite family memory...I have so many - the laughter, the conversations, the trips... 
4: What's your personality type? Umm...I don't have one... I've taken so many personality tests multiple times each and never get the same type. I'm always an I but the other three letters always switch. 
5: If you had the opportunity to have a 4-course meal, all with foods you choose, what would the meal consist of? Hmm...I'd have to think about that question... :P 
6: Would you rather have a pet dolphin or a pet bear? Probably a pet bear because a dolphin wouldn't be too helpful where I live.
7: What's one random thing about you that few people know? I'm an adventurous person...but I don't come across that way to most people... 
8: What's your favorite holiday? Hm, either Independence Day or Thanksgiving Day. 
9: What quote (from a book, movie, or YouTube video) do you find yourself saying often? I have lots of quotes that I say. :P 
10: If you could live in any other previous time period, which one would you choose? Oh, this is a hard question! It'd be so neat to leave in Medieval England, but then again I'd like to live during the cattle drives... 
11: If you could see yourself from someone else's perspective, who's perspective would you choose and why? (It could be a family member's, a friend's, your local librarian's, etc.) Another interesting question...that I don't know whom to choose... :P 


Here are my 11 questions for the others to answer: 
1. What is one thing you would like to do this summer? 
2. What is one of your favorite memories?
3. If you could name yourself, what name would you choose? Why?
4. What 5 words would you use to describe yourself?
5. If you knew you couldn't fail, what is one thing you would do? 
6. Who is your hero (besides Jesus and your family ;P)? 
7. What is your greatest fear? 
8. What are two qualities that you look for in a friend?
9. What phrase/saying/quote describes you best? 
10. What would be your perfect job? 
11. What are 7 things that make you smile? 

Now to tag 11 bloggers, we'll see if I get that many... xP

Never Forget // Memorial Day

"We are forever indebted to those who have given their lives that we might be free." - Ronald Reagan
"We owe this freedom of choice and action to those men and women in uniform who have served this nation...in time of need. ...We are forever indebted to those who have given their lives that we might be free." -Ronald Reagan

Millions of soldiers have served our country and given their lives to give us freedom. Never forget that freedom isn't free. Never forget their sacrifice for us. But beyond their sacrifice is the sacrifice that Jesus gave to free His people! His sacrifice is far beyond our comprehension. Because of His sacrifice, His people are freed from sin and death and become part of God's kingdom. Remember this day the soldiers who gave their lives, but most importantly remember Jesus' great sacrifice for His people!

Photos with Chloe!

Well...it's been a while! I apologize for my long absence. Life has been insanely busy of late. Can any of you all relate? I don't have time right now for a long blog post, but here are some pictures from a recent photo shoot with a friend. Thanks so much, Chloe, for hanging out with me. I had so much fun! =))
