I realized during my last big trip, where I was given more training and space to be an InterVarsity Intern, how HUGE this transition is.

I'm officially moving from Los Angeles to Fresno, CA.
From college into 'real' life.
From a 9-5 corporate job to a more flexible schedule.
From just wanting to live my dreams to actually going for it.

From my college and church communities in Los Angeles to a new community that will (likely) rock me as they teach me about Jesus, Fresno and what it means to love unconditionally.

That being the case, I decided to start a new blog. 'Cause I want to turn a new page in every way that I can, and writing is sure to be one of those ways.

So, I'll see you at the new bloggy.
If you'd like to keep reading my journey and reflections, you can go to here.

(no, there isn't anything there yet, but there will be! soon, very soon.)

i remember when you picked me up and twirled me around in the fiercest hug our friendship has felt.
it reminded me that i wouldn't be alone in this.
i wouldn't be found running and jumping without being caught.

as i sit in this new place, i realize that's what i feel.
the absence of those closest to me, vulnerable to not being caught.
running in the opposite direction of those that are near as i wait for those that have known me longer, those that know me the best.

(I wish this were easier!)

it's time to reach out and be vulnerable.
i can't sit and wait for things to happen without asking, without taking risks.

"You are perfection!"

My heart about melted when I overheard a papa say this to his 3 year old curly haired daughter at the grocery store. :)

Study Bible.

it actually makes me want to read the Bible.

go figure.
