Hi friends!

I hope you’ve been having a relaxing week! I’ve enjoyed a wonderful stay-cation here in Nashville and I’m sad to see it go. For those of you who were posting beach pictures on Instagram…I see you. But I’ll be on beaches of my own in just a few months, because I just bought my tickets to Port Elizabeth, South Africa! Here are five other exciting things from this week.

1. Some gluten free recipes are not that great. Case in point: the coconut flour pizza that I attempted to make for Sarah and I this week. It looked so promising, and tasted so…not. Clearly, I wasn’t happy about this.

2. House of Cards quote of the week:

B_6tdX8WMAEOPjAI’m only halfway through Season 3, but I’m hoping to finish before my own Presidency wraps up in just a few short weeks!

3. I’ve got a feeling that these pants I just got from Forever 21 are going to be my go-to’s for this Spring! They’re super comfy and classy at the same time.Screen Shot 2015-03-13 at 10.16.25 AM4. Fun fact of the day from my dear friend and resident capitol tour guide Mr. Joseph Minga: The TN State Capitol is the oldest still-functioning capitol building in the US. It was finished in 1859 and is still standing strong!

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

I have loved my experience interning at Cross Point’s Dream Center, and this verse has come alive for me more now than ever through my work with them. Every person there is so committed to taking care of their brother or sister, regardless of how much or little they have. It’s been really inspiring and I am so thankful for all the things that I am learning there.

Enjoy your weekend! (PS, since March Madness is about to begin and Belmont’s going to the dance…GO BRUINS!)
