So I've been busy working. College life is for. real. with me taking three classes this summer. But this week I took a break to work a little bit on my home. Over the past few weeks I've been thinking a lot about my home and just the season that God has me in. I love it, the season and my home.

Sometimes it is even difficult to pursue those dreams because we are afraid of the relationships, time, or luxuries we might lose if we are to pursue that dream.
