Girls of Faith

Hi! I don’t really know how to introduce this post except to say that my friend, Charlotte, and I are going to start a YouTube called Girls of Faith. We were inspired by GirlDefined a blog/YouTube encouraging young ladies to glorify God in everything that they do. However, Charlotte and I both felt that it was geared toward girls who are a little older than us. So that’s where Girls of Faith comes in. We have not posted anything yet but if you check my Girls of Faith page frequently then you will get updated on what we are posting.  I hope that we inspire you! 🙂

Tea (Have I Already done that Title? Oh,well!)

Right now I am drinking a cup of tea with milk and sugar and my pot of tea is just gorgeous and it is just so picturesque! Yes definitely. Very picturesque. I should take a picture of this very picturesque tea “seen”. And I did. I have been doing that for quite a while. So I decided that I would do a post with all these very picturesque pictures of tea.

So I did not have time to do any more pictures so will have to be satisfied with my word about there being “tons” more pictures.

Have a great day!

MN Trip #1

On March 1st, 2017, we (my family still living at home and I) left for MN to go to my brother’s wedding. The youngest of all my brothers has finally gotten married! Well I’ll start with day one of this trip.

Scenic view from the plane. (Yes, we took a plane this time. 😉 )

Our plane was supposed to arrive in Minneapolis at 2:00 P.M., but it arrived at 1:30 P.M. instead, so we went to go see Gabriel (the one that is getting married) at his work. Then we went to go see Priscilla at her work (she works at Dunn Brothers in a hospital) and she made Mom a coffee and Bethany and I a Frappe (I think that is how you spell it, but what ever the case, it is a coffee smoothie basically, with whipped cream on top. It is EXTREMELY AMAZINGLY GOOD! Thanks Priscilla!) Then we went to see Hannah at her house and ate dinner with her! I guess that’s all I’ll do today, but be sure that more will come!

Little Women Tea

Since before Christmas 2015 we (my friend Charlotte, Charlotte’s mom, my mom and me) have been working on a Civil War dress and were planning to have a Little Women Christmas Tea  (we had been reading Little Women together and thought that it would be fun if we made a dress for that time period.) Well, we finally finished the dress right before Christmas 2016 instead of 2015. Anyways, we finally did have our tea so here are a few pictures of our tea.
