Hey friends,

Yes, I realize I’ve been out of the game for almost two weeks now! For that, you can thank Greek Week/Greek Sing. Don’t get me wrong—it was one of the most fun weeks of my life and I was so proud that Theta WON, but it stole a lot of my time, But, like I said, totally worth it (with sisters like this, how couldn’t it be?)

Anyways, we’ve made it to Easter Break, and these past few days have been wonderfully restful/contemplative. Allow me to share a little of what’s been on my mind this week.

1. Yesterday was a beautiful day for exploring. Adventured to The Stone Door in East Tennessee and had a pretty awesome time braving my fear of heights. My favorite view of the day was this tree that had just blossomed in the middle of the barren bluffs. I love persistent beauty. Much thanks to my fellow adventurer for sharing this with me.11134258_10206316594463900_425279950_n2. Somewhere in the midst of all the crazy, I managed to finish House of CardsAll I have to say is, I now have a deeper fear of sketchy white passenger vans. Needing another show to calm myself down…Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt sounds promising…

3. South Africa is coming so soon! I’ve officially booked my flight and as a bonus will have an entire day’s layover in London! Everything is coming together faster than I can imagine and I am more than excited to embark on a journey that I already know will be life-changing.

4. Update on the success (read: relative failure) of giving up gluten for Lent: it’s definitely been a learning experience. As someone who has never given up something for more than a day or two, this was a definite struggle, but I learned a ton. Check back tomorrow for a full recap on the Gluten Free 40.

5. Today is a celebration of the fulfillment of a painful prophecy. Whenever Good Friday comes around, my mind always goes back to this verse from Isaiah 53, and how grateful I am for undeserved grace.

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” —Isaiah 53:5

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!

xoxo,
