Show and Tell Tuesday: Re-introductions & Resolutions

Happy Tuesday!

I am ready for the New Year & thankful for the extra long break!

I'm linking up with Andrea of Momfessionals to share re-introductions & resolutions.

I was born in 1993 in Asheville, North Carolina. I have a younger sister, Erin who is a junior at NC State. Our parents are awesome and I am so blessed to have my memaw (93) living with us. 
I graduated with my bachelor's from Appalachian State University (if you're a Michigan fan, you may have heard of them ;) in May of 2015. I started full-time graduate school in August of 2015 at Western Carolina University. I love what I do, and have never felt more called in my life. I have a special place in my heart for the elderly. 

Show and Tell Tuesday: Re-introductions and Resolutions

On December 20, 2015- I said yes to marrying my best friend. We are high school sweethearts, and have been together for 7 years. As we have grown up, we've grown closer and I love it.

Show and Tell Tuesday: Re-introductions & Resolutions

It's the Grad Life was started in March of 2015 because I wanted a way to document my life through grad school, almost a virtual scrapbook if you will. I love being able to look back and remember all the little details I would have forgotten with out it. 

Now for the Resolutions. 
1. Be Healthy
Last semester, I was focused on balancing everything.... I often chose sleep instead of working out. This year, I want to focus on being healthy, whether it be a full workout or choosing carrots instead of chips. 

2. Read the Bible more
I am hoping to start a devotional and spend more time in prayer. Anxiety about a test, a job, a huge project can get the best of my attitude... This is a great map for handling those situations with grace.

3. Less Screen Time
I suffer from a busy mind. I always am on the go. When I sit down and "relax" my phone is often in my hand. I need to let go of the need to "be on" and work on being present in the moment.

 I can't wait to "meet" everyone!
Happy New Year!


  1. I've read through your blogs a few time from the link up! I saw your comment on another post and had no idea you were in grad school for speech path!!! I'm a speech path too; it's definitely a calling and a passion to be a SLP!!! Praying for you while you work on your goals this year!!!

  2. Hey Caitlin! You stopped by my blog earlier and I wanted to stop by and say hi! Thanks for reading and good luck on your resolutions! :)

  3. That's so cute that you married your high school sweetheart! I don't see that very often!

    What are you studying in grad school?

    I'm attempting to do more quiet time this year also! Bible, journaling, prayer, whatever...I just know that I need more of it!

  4. Ohh, I should've done this link-up! I liked 'meeting' you again! I think I already said it, but congratulations (again?) on your engagement! So exciting!


Thanks for reading, I would love for you to share your thoughts :)
