Emily | NCSU Senior Portraits

I can't say enough about this girl. Emily has appeared on my blog numerous times as she is one of my roommates and best friends. She is the sweetest, smartest, weirdest, prettiest, funniest, happiest person I know and I am so lucky to have been able to call her my best friend since my sophomore year at NC State. We have been on so many adventures together from random beach trips to the best NYC trip everrrr. She is graduating from NCSU with a degree in environmental engineering (see told y'all she was smart!) and has the biggest heart. I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for her life! When Emily asked me to take a few senior portraits for her I jumped at the opportunity. Em, so thankful for you and your heart for others...Love you!
These two are hysterical together! Emily and Jack have been dating since high school #loveyoulongtime

Let's Be Real

Y'all, I have been struggling lately. I have been struggling with fear. Fear is something that seems to sneak up on me and make me question  e v e r y  s i n g l e  t h i n g  I do or want to do. I wish I could say that isn't true but I know fear is a part of most of our lives. It is an irrational emotion because we are SO LOVED by a God who is SO MUCH bigger than fear. But, I'm human and I still feel it. I still question decisions I make and I still want to know what I am supposed to do with my life!
Time to be real... The other night after getting my seventh "Sorry we did not pick you for this position," I just lost it. I lost it and was crying out to Him to give me peace that it's all going to be OK. I want to "laugh without fear of the future." I want to spend my last (36!) days of college enjoying my friends, my community and my university. But it's so easy for me to feel lost and confused about what I'm supposed to be our do when I grow up (in 36 days). 
I have been questioning myself so much lately between finding a job, making products for my shop and starting a business. When I do this, I doubt my education and my creative instincts continually wondering if they are enough. But you know what friends? God is good and He knows the plans He has for me and it sometimes takes a good hard (ugly) cry to realize that I do not want talents like anyone else has... I want to use the ones I have to the best of my abilities to bring glory to Him! But with all that said, I am so thankful for the journey of life that has brought me here and I am excited for the next chapter whatever it may be!
