Looking back on the past 6 months, I am in awe of the journey that God has brought me on. I cant help but give thanks to God for all the wonderful memories and lifelong friends that I have made during the last semester of college... here is a reflection on just 20.

1. Living in a refugee community...Willow Branch, my home. 

2. the beauty of the little things in life...clothes drying outside

3. Volcano boarding-CNN #2 thing to do before you die

 4. Jonna surviving Nicaragua

5. neighborhood girls bonding nights

 6. weekly outings to the Yogurt tap...especially with sweet Halima =]

 7. spontaneously beginning a garden in the backyard. end result= pile of dirt... but totally worth the memories made.

 8. the joys of staying up throughout the night taking care of the stray kitten- pistol pete
** those who know me during this time, know that this is a complete lie and I am not very thankful at all for little petey, clearly I am not ready to be a mother
