So, I mentioned in my last post that I was going to bee school, I think. Well, hubs and I went to bee school! We took the NC certified beekeeper written exam and hopefully passed it. We sat in a room with over 100 other people while various beekeepers gave lectures for 9 hours. It … Continue reading the spiritual connection
My husband says that even though I know people are never going to do the right thing, I still expect people to do the right thing. I hold high standards. Sometimes those standards aren't really fair because I form the ideas of what I want people to be based on what will make ME happy … Continue reading guns.
I've been thinking a lot lately... Or, like, since graduating. I've been thinking about how my jobs since acquiring my bachelor's degree have been in fields where I don't use that degree at all. What's the point? I work with kids and I work in the service industry. Honestly, I love both, most of the … Continue reading When you’re in the service industry

I've never really been much for people. And by that I mean I'm one of the most introverted people you'll ever meet, even if I don't show that on the outside. I've always been quiet. Most of the time, I'm fine blending in with the background. But sometimes that can be a really dangerous thing. … Continue reading “You are more loved than you will ever know by someone who died to know you.”
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
