TEN THINGS TUESDAY: Summer Favourites 2017

Starbucks Drink. In the winter, I can never imagine craving an iced coffee. But as soon as summer comes around, it’s the greatest! My go-to drink on my barista breaks is an iced americano (can be ordered decaf), with almond milk, 1 pump of mocha and 1 pump of toffee nut. YUM.

Outfit. I am loving off-the-shoulder tops. So classy, breezy, and comfy!

Adventure. I have ventured to three different locations with waterfalls and gorgeous, natural hiking, and I already can’t get enough. What a miraculous gift of the Lord!

Place. My favourite place on the planet, my second home, is my cottage. I am already so homesick for it and so excited to be there.

Project. Working on a cookbook with real, crafted, and tested recipes has been one of the greatest and most fun projects I could dream of. I feel so called to the sorts of “normal,” what-your-grandparents-grew-up-on recipes and love growing in my cooking ability.

Word. I am so immensely blessed to have been given a series of sermons, or messages, from Johnny that he has saved from his time at a Bible college. I am just beginning going through them, grateful for the challenge of studying this Word that is “everything” in the midst of everyday life.

Goal. This summer, I am saving as much money as possible! I’m the type of person that cringes spending money on a $2 coffee (“I could have made that for free at home)! I actually feel lately I’ve taken that to a new level in which I’m overly stressed about it– it is all the Lord’s money, period, and I am giving any worry over to the Spirit for His purposes.

Book. My sweet, dear friend Sara got me a book called “How it All Started,” written by the CEO of Starbucks. I’m so excited to read it!

Work Goal. Silly as it seems, I really want to become a master at coffee art. It’s one of those little hobbies I’ve always wanted to perfect, and I love making people smile when I hand of a latte with a design on top!

Blessing. Having Johnny here and growing in Christ with him is such a blessing and exactly where I feel called.

Welcome! Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to own a blog, and I created this one to inspire others and help myself. I am a passionate twenty something-year old woman with a love of cooking, tap dancing, and meeting new people-- and of course, primarily an intention to die to my human self and seek God with my whole being. I will eat anything with peanut butter and love spontaneity. I aim to live life in submission to what Christ has for me. I'm currently studying Christian Theology and English at Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario, Canada.
