Where Have I Been?!

Two months ago, I took a break from blogging.

The end of the school year + work + travels took precedence over my life.

And, Christine was busy at work re-designing my blog!

Needless to say, I'm so incredibly grateful that I'm now back to blogging again.
{I really have missed it!}

So, I thought I would bring y'all up to date on what has happened in my life since my last post.

As a side note, you might want to make a cup of coffee or tea. This is a long one!

If you remember this post and the giveaway, you know that I had four friends walk down the aisle in less than two months! I was able to attend 2 of the 4 weddings!

It's such a breath of fresh air to watch two people commit to honor one another and Christ through their relationship, engagement, and now marriage.

After Hayley and Graham's wedding, I finished school and entertained our little house guest.

EK and her parents were in between houses so, they camped out in our basement for a couple of weeks!

We made a quick trip to the beach for Mother's Day which made for a relaxing getaway!

Aren't these the cutest beach houses?! 

Less than a week after we came home, I left for Teenpact National Convention.

What. A. Week.

I plan on posting about it separately. But, for now, here are a few pictures to tide you over… :)

{side note: These photos are compliments of Marvelous Things Photography… mine are coming later!}

And two weeks later, we were on the road again. This time we were headed over state lines for Justin and Audrey's wedding!

If you remember from last year when I played the paparazzi, this is the happy couple! :)

Since the wedding, I've been busy working, serving, and visiting with people! 

my current desk – the back deck! {Notice the Iced Coffee?!}

As for serving, I have been a part of this ministry called The Wellhouse where I live. I was able to go with the Special Ops Team one day and absolutely loved it! 

I also volunteered with Y'all Connect a couple of weeks ago and loved hanging out in the VIP room meeting and serving people! 

who says volunteer work is boring?!
loved hanging out with a speaker's son!

On top of those events, I've learned how to make tea… 

…and then put my skills into practice when I went over to my newly married friend's house!

So, while life has been busy, it has been good. 

I'm excited to see where the LORD will lead me in the coming months! 

Until next time,

Welcome! {blog re-launch}

Hey y'all!

Do you notice anything different?!

Yep, thanks to the creative Christine from Great Oak Circle, I have a new design for my blog!

So, what do you think?!

Love it? Or hate it?

 Let me know in the comments below!

All I can say is, after a two month hiatus, I'm super excited to get back into the swing of things around here in my corner of the blog world!

With that said, I'm excited share to share with y'all the new content I have lined up for this month! :)

So, here's what the line up for each week will look like:

Sunday: I'll update you on my life through words and pictures

Tuesday: I'll talk about something entertaining/light-hearted.
{Y'all know I love to laugh!}

Thursday: I'll share my thoughts on a topic that I have been learning about recently.

Saturday: I'll be starting a new series called "Practice What You Pin" which takes what I have pinned from Pinterest and puts it into practice! 

Feel free to add your suggestions in the comments below on what you would like for me to post about! 

Until next time, 
– Giann 

*Note: This is still a work in progress so, bear with me as I work through the changes. Also, I plan on addressing "Hoosiersphere" in a few weeks! For now, it'll be a closed site!
