Happy Friday, everyone! This week has flown by; I've been so crazy busy the past few days, and I can't wait until I have time to wind down a little bit and get myself and my surroundings back together. I dog sat for my mom's friend this past week, and tonight I'm headed to Memphis for a show I'm helping my mom sell merchandise for that starts tomorrow. I am worn out, y'all.
Despite how crazy it was, I had an great week with some amazing people, and I'm so thankful to have such an incredible group of loved ones in my life. I've had the same job for the past 5 years, and even though I've always been close with my co-workers, the people I work with right now are so great, especially the girls. We recently decided to start doing a weekly bible study together, and I absolutely can't wait to get to know everyone better and take this journey with one another.
I'm also incredibly grateful for the sweet boy that I've been dating for the past few months. He's proven to me that good things come to those who wait, and that God always has a beautiful plan for your life, no matter what trials and obstacles you're forced to go through along the way. I've struggled for what seems like forever to allow myself to be cared for and cherished like this in a relationship, whether it was me pushing it away when it was offered or repeatedly allowing myself to be treated in ways that I never should have tolerated. Those days are gone, and I feel an inner peace and stillness within myself that I've never known before. I can't say any more about it because I'm at work and I don't want to cry, but I really am so very thankful to have him in my life.
My personal life aside, I've been pinning the hell out of denim outfits lately. My American Eagle denim jacket is probably one of the best fashion investments I've ever made, and I'm super excited to start wearing it more once this atrociously hot weather starts to calm itself down. I've also seen a lot of denim dresses like the one pictured above, and I love the idea of pairing it with a cute striped sweater or cardigan tied around the waist!
