How does you sum up yourself in a few paragraphs of text? I'm pretty sure it's impossible, but I'm going to try.

I don't want to start out with the usual name, age, and grade. I don't want that to define me. Most of all, I want you to know that I love Jesus. Oh, my love is no where near what it should be. I mean, he died so I could live- and I have a hard time talking to him sometimes! But He's my goal and I want him to be my all too.

Living life with one thing in mind is hard, there's so many rabbit trails and distractions and real life. It's tough to have as your goal imitating someone who is perfect! But He gives me the grace I need- and every day I come a little closer and get to know him a little bit better and love him more!

Spending time getting to know Jesus and who he is is becoming one of my favorite things to do, but I'm also a junior in high school (can't wait to be done geometry!), and the oldest of five siblings. I make music on several different instruments and I love creating beautiful things.

I constantly have some kind of knitting project on my needles and my camera is always out where I can grab it to capture the beauty I see around me. The piano draws me every afternoon. Playing music is so calming but it exhilarates me too! Putting food together to make something delicious is wonderful. Right now I'm trying a gluten free diet.

I believe in almost every case, we have too much of everything. Simplifying- and only living with what I need- is a goal of mine. I read voraciously too.

I want this blog to be a place where I can share what I make with everyone, but not be pressured with stats and comments and feedback. I stepped away from it for a while, but I'm coming back because I love it. It's not my number one priority, and I'm not worrying about always keeping it updated and fresh. It's my little corner of the web, and you're welcome to poke around!
