Hey friends! As you read this I’m sure you’ve noticed the major change in my blog name. As I mentioned in my last post, I’m getting married in a few months and I’m going to be changing my last name 😉
How does that affect my first name?! Well, I’ve always been unhappy with my name, it’s long and it’s just not what I would have chosen for myself had I been able to decide (believe it or not, I couldn’t do that as a baby haha). My actual name is Anne-Marie, and my family and friends just always ended up shortening it to Annie, so that became my nickname and that’s how I came up with the title for my blog. However, I’ve never particularly cared for “Annie” even though that’s what everyone still calls me. Continue reading

Hey y’all! This is just a quick post to let you know I’m officially on Bloglovin’ if you want to follow me on there! 🙂
As I was preparing material for today’s post, I realized that I just want to share a little bit of my happiness with you all. It’ll be a shorter post than usual, but I wanted to share my day with you. So here’s a little bit of what makes me smile! 😉
I’m not usually a morning person, but I woke up early today. I prayed and spent some quiet time with God and then I went for a run. I haven’t gone running in such a long time, but it was so exhilarating!
The crisp, cold air blowing past me, the burn that exercise brings, the quiet atmosphere. It was a good time. I loved every second.
Then I had some errands to run and came home to make french toast and coffee for breakfast.
It’s my birthday on Tuesday. Where has the time gone?! It seems like yesterday when I was a 13-year-old little girl excited to finally be a teenager. Now I’m turning 21. When did that happen?!
I remember when I couldn’t wait to be 16 because it was a milestone. 16 was the cool kid age. All I wanted in life was to be 16 and be cool.
Then I turned 17. That was not cool. I couldn’t wait to be 18. All I wanted was to be 18 and an adult.
Little did I know that being an adult at 18 didn’t really change anything. I was out of high school but I had a load of adult responsibilities. In other words, I still wasn’t happy.
First of all, let me just say that I love books. Reading is great. There’s really nothing quite like a good book.
Now let me ask, you know when you have a dream when you’re young and then you get older and all the responsibility of being an adult just kind of washes it away and it no longer seems like a legitimate reality for you? #winded
I think we’ve all been there.
When I was a little girl, I used to write short stories. I had a rapid imagination, but unfortunately, I didn’t have the attention span to go with it. So I would start a story and then stop and start and stop another one and the process would just go on and on until I just gave up and stopped.
