Happy Weekend blog friends! First off I just wanted to say that my little brother Andrew took these pictures & I am beyond impressed with his talent! Second, I am so happy that Friday is finally here, it has seriously taken forever & a day. After work, I am heading up to DC to spend the weekend brunching on Saturday with some fabulous ladies like Alissa, Ashley, & Meaghan & Sunday N + I will be rooting on the Washington Capitals as they kick the Penguins little behind! can.not.wait!

On another note, I am bit overwhelmed at the moment because there is so much I have to get done in the next two weekends with moving up to DC. I just feel as though there is not enough time to get it all done. And the other difficult thing is really wrapping my head around the fact that I am moving away from my family & starting my life else where - in a place that will be full of change + the unknown. I am beyond excited for this move but so very nervous at the same time. I only have a little more time left but I also have to make sure that my priorities are still my top focus. During my devotions the last couple days I have been praying for patience & understanding & really trying to put my faith + trust in the Lord, because He can calm my nerves even when I can't & He is the one that knows my path. 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Enjoy it sweet friends! x
