October Update

It’s been about a month since I gave you all a life update, so I’m doing another one.  I know that in my update at the beginning of September, I said that August had been a wild month, but September was even more insane *in a good way*.

If you’ve been following me this past month, on my blog or my Instagram, you’ll have seen some of the pictures of my travels.  I went to Amicalola Falls, Stone Mountain, a really neat Civil War and Naval History museum in Columbus, Georgia, the Georgia aquarium, Canada, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.  I had to pretty much start all over on my book, and made re-wrote the introduction and first three chapters.  I took the month off from school, so I could write, blog, and travel, and am still debating whether to begin my studies again in October or after I finish my book (which will hopefully happen by November).  I turned twenty and officially left my teenage years behind me.  I bought tickets for a women’s conference for my sister, friend, and I to attend out-of-state.  I booked my first plane tickets to said conference.  I haven’t been home for two weeks because I’ve been traveling the country.

This past month has been absolutely exhilarating.

In August, when I went to Richmond, Virginia with some friends of mine, I suggested that we extend the trip a *little* farther and go to Toronto, Ontario.  My friends weren’t on board with me, but I had fun dreaming the trip up anyway.  Then, this month, I was planning a cross-country trip with another friend of mine, and she asked, “Have you ever wanted to go to Toronto?” I couldn’t believe my ears! I was the only person I knew up until that point that suggested spur-of-the-moment 1,000 mile trips to Canada, and here she was suggesting a trip I’d wanted to take only a month earlier.

I went directly from the Canada trip to the conference, came home for my birthday and spent most of the day at home with family unpacking and then spontaneously repacking my bags to go on a trip through Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, and Minnesota.


I also added 2,000 more words to my book on this trip, finishing the first three chapters.

I just made it back today and I’m exhausted and ready to be with my family for a while.  If posts are slow coming this month, it’s because I’m taking some time to rest, recoup, and write my book.  Thanks for your patience! If there’s any specific posts that you like to see, comment them below so I can focus my time on them.

I really appreciate the support from all of you! Thank you for following along my journey.
