It's November. I like to tell my friends that while I was engaged to Jon it felt like time slowed down. Finishing our senior year of college, planning a wedding and anticipating our lives together...each day passed by so slowly. After we got into our car and left for our honeymoon, life has literally felt like a slingshot. The days, the weeks, the months, the years; everything is flying by so quickly. However, I feel so full of joy and so content.

I'm overwhelmed with thankfulness for my husband, family, and friends, and for the ability to pursue my passions wholeheartedly. Jon and I feel so peaceful being at this place in our lives and motivated by our community of amazing people around us. I'm excited to finish this year strong, to celebrate the holidays with loved ones and keep warm during the unpredictable Atlanta weather!
