A Love Story: From College and Beyond

A look back five whole years ago now... College Move-in Day is nearly upon us. The day I leave a part of myself to begin the best parts of himself. And, by now, it may be clear there’s been a small struggle, which makes me wonder and ponder and ask, “Why?” Which always makes me think… Continue reading A Love Story: From College and Beyond

I'm praying for a breakthrough. But, today, I came across this little something I wrote last year to kick… Continue reading Love and Florida State Football
