  • My Favorite Words.

    'The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still' -Exodus 14:14

    "You've got to know your limitations. I found out what mine were when I was twelve. I found out that there weren't too many limitations, if I did it my way." - Johnny Cash

    "Courage is the ladder that all virtues are mounted on." - Mr. R. Crosby Kemper, Jr.

    "It's your choice, Ace. People can live a hundred years without really living for a minute. You climb up here with me, it's one less minuteyou haven't lived." - Gilmore Girls

    "Faith, it does not make things easy, it makes them possible" - Luke 1:37

    "I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the lights that I have." -Abraham Lincoln

    "Writing is a struggle against silence." - Carlos Fuentes

    "At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don't really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important happy ever after, just that its happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you, and once in a while people may even take your breath away." - Grey's Anatomy

    "Imperfection is beauty. Madness is genius. And it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. And when it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I'm already better than them." - Marilyn Monroe

    “It’s not that I believe everything happens for a reason. Some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It’s the universe’s way of providing contrast. There have to be a few holes in the road. It’s how life is." – Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

    "Opportunity knocks; that doesn't mean you have to knock the door off the hinges." - Sam Herringshaw

    "Grace doesn’t depend on suffering to exist, but where there is suffering you will find grace in many facets and colors." – William P. Young, The Shack

    ‎"You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it." - Robin Williams

    "I think I'd miss you even if I'd never met you."-The Wedding Date

    "If you don't even believe in the possibility of magic, you'll never ever find it." - Castle

NYC Girls Weekend – Part 2

Welcome back for Part 2 of my recap of the girls weekend trip Megan and I took to NYC. If you missed them, here are the links for my previous two posts:

“NYC Girls Weekend – A Snapchat Story,”
“NYC Girls Weekend – Part 1”


We continued our Saturday afternoon visiting Grand Central Station, where we got a coffee and rested our feet for a while.

I really wasn’t sure what to expect but the 9/11 Memorial and Museum was so well done. I would definitely recommend putting it one your must-see list when visiting NYC. Be sure to give yourself at least 2 hours or so.

Rockefeller Plaza is now officially on my bucket list to visit during Christmas time! While we were waiting to go to the Top of the Rock we watched the ice skating, including this funny old man who was cracking us up with his dancing.

Going to the Top of the Rock is SO WORTH the spendy ticket. We both were told that we should go to the Rock instead of the Empire State building, and though we didn’t do both to compare, we definitely recommend the Rock!

After the Rockefeller Center, it was already past 11pm and we hadn’t had a chance to get dinner so we were starving! Somewhat unintentionally we wandered back over to Times Square and ended up eating at Dos Caminos, a Mexican restaurant that looked out onto the square. I don’t know if it was just because we were so hungry, but the food was so good!!

I’m really glad we went back at night time because the red stairs were open!

Sunday morning we headed to St. Patrick’s so Megan could go to Mass. Even if you are like me and not Catholic, I would suggest going, everything was so pretty and the organ was amazing!

The rest of the morning was pretty relaxed. We got breakfast at Magnolia Bakery which is around the corner from the Rockefeller Plaza and apparently pretty famous.

I nerded out a little when we stumbled upon the Sunday Today Show going on.




And of course we had to be super tourists and visit the LOVE sign.

Before heading out we quickly stopped by Central Park again. It was sunny and beautiful out, but it was SO COLD!

The weekend went by way too quickly, and our feet have been sore for days, but I am so happy that we were able to make this girls weekend work.

Excited for when she, Kyla and Nathan visit DC in June!
