I'm a bad blog mama..

It has been awhile, folks! I'm not so great at keeping this thing updated..but let's just say life has been going a million miles per hour these days. Between hair school, work, and attempting to maintain a social life..sheesh! It's been crazy.

Hair school is proving to be one of the more difficult things in my life at the moment. I am 7 months in. SEVEN MONTHS. Literally, shaking my head in disbelief right now. As emotionally, physically, and psychologically difficult as it is..I'm in love with this craft. Can't imagine doing anything else with my life. Well, besides playing music and being a jet-setting makeup artist (yes please). Hair school is a lot different than I thought it would be..but then again, there are a lot of aspects of it that do not surprise me one bit. Drama is one of them, of course. But hey! It's a school full of women, what else would you expect?? Haha. Really, though, the drama isn't that bad at all. I'm growing to love some of these women a lot. I never really intended on making friends, or even talking to anyone at all (keep your head low...stay out of the way...and do what you're there to do -- still go by that, just not as strictly..haha) but I have. There are some great folks there. And it really fills me up when I get to fill THEM up with encouragement or a smile or a helping hand. I can only pray they see Jesus in me. There is a lot of hurt in that school so I can only hope Jesus will shine through me. Just got to allow Him to do it!

So there is a very disheveled little blog entry for ya. Hopefully, I won't stay away for too long again.
Oh! And here's a few photos from the past few months.







Love to all.

Hold your head high and know

It's not the end of the road.

"Blessed is he who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him."
James 1:12

I could be skinnier

Talk a little louder.

Dress a little trendier.

Flirt a little bit.

Won't make me happier.

Goodbye, little prince.

It's so hard to reconcile with the death of a pet. It seems so silly to cry hysterically over an animal. On the other hand, I am fully convinced that God showed our little family favor by blessing us with Bandy. He was such a good dog. So loving and kind. He fell in love with everyone who walked through our front door. He always greeted them warmly. I really appreciated that about him. 

I feel fortunate to have had Puppy for as long as we did. He saw me and Aaron grow through a lot of different stages of life.  A little over a decade of life. He was there through it all. Lovingly sitting at our feet as we watched tv. Greeting us as we returned home from school. Begging for table scraps. Haha.. 

Although I feel grieved by the loss of Bandy, I feel so thankful to have had him. He was so good to us. 

We love you, little boy. Thanks for all the love.

Fire in my Belly.

Every time I pick up Make-Up Artist magazine or scroll through Tumblr and see all the gorgeous shoots and potential muses..or step inside an ULTA or Sephora..

I just can't handle it.

I want badly..I want this for the rest of my life. I finally feel like I am in the right place. I'm actually happy. I just want it all right now. Everything it has to offer. All the knowledge and skill. I want to soak up everything. I want to be the best at my craft.

I just want this forever.
