valbui {gloomsday} afternoon hangs with one of my roomies,Taylor. Introduction time: not only a roommate, but a lovely friend & sister in Christ who is so dear to me. She is a driven spirit to accomplish anything she wants. She's darling & makes bomb banana bread, BOMB I tell you. I'm thankful to experience life with her under the same roof, laughing, studying in the latest of nights exclaiming our "hate" for chemistry, cooking in the kitchen, & our walks to school. Funny to think we live in the same town & hardly saw each other this past summer, but I feel our time to build a stronger friendship is now us. Lol jk 3d

valbui on my plate, fall. in my heart, warmth & love. Waking up slowly, then hanging out on the couch for a while, I reflected on this week I called 'hell.' This week was hard for me, just because I didn't allow myself to truly feel unpleasant emotions..after realizing that, I allowed myself to sit, break down & be vulnerable. It was needed because that's what I felt. One can't be happy go lucky all hours of the day, there are times we really need to 'feel the feels' and do what makes us grow from something, anything. From this day on, I decided to be more aware of my emotions, in tune with my thoughts but be present in the moment. I want to do things that make me happy & feel like I'm living life genuinely.// SO, this morning, I made some pumpkin waffles for my roommates whom have been nothing but a great support in all & anything I do. I thank you all so much!! This makes me happy, the smell of fall warms my heart with nostalgic comfort & doing what I love makes me live, happily, genuinely. And that, that's what it's about, I also thank God for that. #morningslikethese 4d

valbui •As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God• {psalms42:1}
it's funny how Bon Iver's Creature Fear played during my quiet time & reading this verse. In my cup, a lavender honey toddy. anyway, I thank God for this week, although it seemed like t wasn't the BEST, but He seemed to show me the little things that were good about it. I found out I hate chemistry..not hate, just don't understand at the moment & my major revolves around it, so does my roommate's.//we're strugglin' but I'm just thankful for that, I'm thankful that I'm struggling, I'm thankful for my roommate, and I'm just thankful for anything/everything that happens in my life because I ultimately seek Him at the end..I try to at least & when I do, I'm never going to be completely full or satisfied because I still long for the desire to KNOW Him more..& I know He has a greater plan for me than I can ever begin to fathom. As for now, I'm going to take it day by day. Happy Friday.

valbui what's today? HUMPDAYYYEE.

in other words, my longest day of the week. Class at 9 am, a 3 hour chemistry lab, a fitness class followed by 2 school organization meetings, thankfully the last meeting is at a coffee shop️ although some dislike their 'long' days, I found mine to be quite enjoyable. I learned new things, was productive, ran into familiar faces { @tangerinevalerie } failed at Zumba (NOT FUN), talked to my mom for a good while, had an input in my org meetings as well as meet new people. I also walked through a sun shower, one other happy thing. It's the little things that make days like these worth it.

valbui a little while ago, my roommate accidentally hit me with her foot..I looked up with a serious face & jokingly said, "you hit me!" she responded by saying, "it was a love pat." I couldn't help but laugh, I found it so funny at the moment. I just wanted to share & also share how very blessed I am to have her as a roommate, it seems we are always together because our schedules are so similar..every day..because they literally are the same.// anyway, enjoying this rainy evening with free coffee, biology, & a sweet girl after burning my granola (slightly..okay, a lot), working for 5 minutes at work, & a VERY hectic week. I'm pretty content with this, very content actually. Happy Friday, enjoy all the littlest of things. 3w

valbui {uncomfortable situations}

Sometimes God puts us in uncomfortable situations or situations in general where we don't fully understand why it has happened & we tend wonder why or know what the reason behind it was..when in reality, we don't need to know. Earlier this week I was definitely put in an uncomfortable situation, I tried to thank God but I couldn't really see or understand how to. I reflected on the situation for a while & evaluated my questions or just emotions attached to it, I finally let it go. I realized it was completely out of MY control & after realizing that I was fine. If anything, I was seeking God more. Maybe it was His way of showing me "xy&z" but it brought me closer to Him. I'm thankful enough for that. I allowed myself to be okay with not knowing the results of things & allowing God to orchestrate my life according to His plan which is good, He has a grand plan for me, you, everyone. I'm happy knowing that there is a reason for everything & even happier knowing that I may not always know the reasons 'why.' He's a funny fellow, but goodness, He is great.

valbui home sweet home with goodies! My morning was the sweetest of Saturdays. I rode my bike 5 minutes or less to the farmer's market to smile & talk to different locals/vendors. I taste tested so many things: zucchini bread, maple syrup, coffee, sweetest of fruits etc! it was so neat, especially everyone around me. my heart swelled. In my basket: wild flowers, asparagus, peaches, elephant garlic, jalapeños, a cucumber, 3 soy candles that smell AMAZING, a small floral side purse, oh and sea salt caramel fudge.. next Saturday will consist of buying organic teas! I'm so happy 3w

valbui my favorite blend of coffee with an all natu-ral vanilla bean creamer, yes.// my body has it's own alarm clock set, but thankfully I was able to lay in bed for a while longer than usual. I had a really nice dream last night ft. A stranger, isn't that weird? It was really lovely though. Anyway, started this day with AM yoga, journaling, The Civil Wars, coffee & now I'm packing my bike up to head to the local farmer's market downtown. Happy Saturday, friends. 🌞 4w

valbui "she drink coffee, she drink tea.."
such an UP beat song for this Friday afternoon// a {long} while ago I was tagged by @rachsilas for a #iamperfectionchallenge. Through God's eyes, I was made perfect. Of course, I'm not perfect, BUT i am a piece of His beautiful creation. We tend to seek approval from others, constantly worrying about our appearance, never being satisfied with ourselves etc. when in reality, we are sooo precious. We're human, we have so many unique features that someone else may not have, embrace it, love the skin you're in, the body you're in because it can function in so many neat ways & most importantly the creator who made you fearfully & wonderfully. This goes out to everyone, even those who don't struggle with body image or confidence. Y'all are beautiful humans, guys & gals! now go out & embrace YOU.

valbui •Tuesday Night Family Time•
each week students are blessed with the opportunity to come together & have a free dinner at someone's house. It's a time to de-stress, interact, eat, play games & just show Christ's love through smiles, conversations & common interests. Last semester I found my second family at the O'Briens house on Tuesdays. They're so welcoming & SO loving, not to mention that their family is just precious. I just really want to thank them for all they do & say how appreciative I am for them opening their house to college students (sometimes more than 30!) this year it is my goal to be intentional with the new faces that walk through the door & hope to impact lives of those who impact mine. This evening I had such a great conversation with a girl named Caitlin after having such a weird day. I'm just very thankful for today. I love my family. I loved today after all that happened.
