As I am looking forward to entering College this fall I am beginning to more deeply appreciate the small things in my life. Knowing that I am about to be placed in a new environment away from some of the most important things in my life has been alternately exciting and terrifying to me. As I have been thinking about this upcoming transition, I have been trying to savor the last little bit of my high school years.
And as a continuation of this I would like to share some of the things that I am most grateful for on this blog over the next two weeks. I want this to be a celebration of the beautiful and the good things that I encounter – the things that are both the very anchors of my being and the small and fleeting blessings that surprise me every day.
