On my way back to Idaho after my summer in Connecticut, I saw this sunrise and it took my breath away. I posted this picture on one of my favorite apps called VSCO. I captioned it, "adventure awaits."
To be honest, when I posted that picture, I didn't necessarily believe the adventures ahead were going to be all that great.I was going through a really hard time. I thought for sure that this was going to be the most trying semester I've ever had. I was having such a hard time accepting the fact that I wouldn't have my best friends by my side and I was so worried that my roommates weren't going to like me and that I would feel alone--a feeling that seemed to be all too familiar. I was so unsure about the future and I was so scared.
I remember seeing this comment my grandma and grandpa made on a post of mine and thinking, "There is no way this could possibly be the best semester yet..."
...but it was.
Little did I know when I was on that plane ride back to school that this semester was going to be the best adventure of my life! I had no idea how many blessings Heavenly Father had in store for me this semester. I met the most amazing man in the world and he makes me happier than I ever thought possible, my roommates were total gems (who quickly became some of my best friends and I love them so much), though my schoolwork was an overload, I met so many great people, and I grew closer to my Savior. This semester will be one I never forget!
Now feel free to scroll through a ton of pictures:
