February~ What’s on your heart tag.

Thank you Sis. Amy for nominating me for this! You are just the best!😍😂 Here are the rules!!

  1. Thank the person who nominated you to participate.
  2. Link back to the Original post.
  3. Attach an image that inspires you regarding the month’s theme (or use the original).
  4. Talk about what this month’s theme means to you.
  5. Answer the questions.
  6. Nominate one or more people to participate.
  7. Enjoy the rest of your month!!❤

Our theme is called: What’s on your heart?

What’s on my heart?! Umm…Lots I guess. If I could use one word to describe what’s on my heart it would be DEEPER. I know what all of you just thought “Huh?”. Let me explain. This year well not really this year. This word has been on my heart for the past 8+ months. I can’t even express how much this word means to me. I want to go deeper into what God has for me!!! I want to go deeper into his presence!!! I want to go deeper into his word!!! I want to know him deeper!!! This has been on my heart for the past 8+ months. And, I’m finally seeing it happen! I’ve gotten SO close to God over the past few months like never before. And, the deeper I go the more I want him more! That’s what has been on my heart.


  • Do you believe in love at first sight?

I’m not sure… Probably not. (That answer could possibly change when I actually start dating…lol.)


  • Do you believe in soulmates?

Yes!


  • What’s the first thing you notice about a person?

The first thing I normally notice is if they are fake or not. I can’t stand fake people!! If your going to be my friend please don’t be fake. I have enough of fake people in my life. I don’t need more! Thank ya!😂😉


  • What’s your ideal date?

How am I supposed to know?!😂 I’m 15 going on 16 and I don’t plan on dating anytime soon. Lol. I know most teenage girls are boy crazy… I’m not… I’m sorry. That’s just not me. Even if I was boy crazy I couldn’t do anything about it anyway. So, I’ll just save that until I actually can start dating. Which is NOT that big of a deal to me anyway.😂 Anyways…


  • What traits do you look for in a friend/significant others?

HONESTY!!! That is SO important to me. I’ve had so many friends/people lie to my face and behind my back! To be honest… it makes me sick. I try my very best to be the nicest friend to people and all they do is lie to me and treat me like dirt. That’s why Jesus is my best friend!!!!!! He’s been there for me…ALWAYS!!


  • What are your thoughts on being friends with an ex?

🙄🤔. I’ve never been in that position but I would probably say it’s not a good idea. But, I mean if your both cool with it I guess it would be fine, but don’t keep stirring the pot just for fun.😉


  • If you’re a believer, when did you give your heart to the Lord? If not, what in life keeps a bounce in your step?

I gave the Lord my heart when I was 9 years old at my first youth camp. And the ONLY thing that keeps a bounce in my step is the Lord!!


The people I am going to nominate are: Starr & Jessie. Congrats! I hope to read your posts about this soon!😉

God is good all the time, and all the time God is good!!

My photography experience.

Since I’m about to shoot a wedding I thought I would share some of my favorite pictures I’ve taken. But, first I’ll tell you a little about my photography experience. I’ve been taken pictures since 2016. I’ve taken 2 college courses on photography, and I’ve done 2 semesters of photography in my years of being in high school. I’ve learned from one of the top photographer’s in the city of Tulsa. I’ve done senior pictures, anniversary pictures, and lots of just normal photo shoots. (I’m not bragging! At all!! I’m just telling you about my photography experience.)

I won’t bore you anymore. Lol. Here are some pictures!! Enjoy!

Side note: I took that⬆️ picture with my phone. All the rest of these i took them with my Canon camera.😉

And yes, I even took these pictures of myself. I didn’t have anyone helping me. I took about 35 pictures until I got a good one, but hey, it worked.😂

And, my last picture is of my brother. This was a few years ago. But, he pretty much looks the same, lol.

There are A LOT more, but I thought that would be enough.😂 I hope ya’ll enjoy the pictures. Which one’s are your favorite?

God, is good all the time, and all the time God is good!

Get to know me Q&A! Part 2

You all just killed it with all the questions! Lol! I had 21 likes on part 1 and the total of questions is…..3!! Haha! I’m not being rude at all! I think it is hilarious!! Well, here are the 3 questions and my answers to them.

  • “As a misplace Southerner up in the Midwest I couldn’t help but see the “Ya’ll” in your message. Are you from the south or even the U.S. for that matter? You “sound” like you are both. Just sayin’… Kev

Well, thank you for the question first! And, I live in Oklahoma. I have found that I say “Ya’ll” a lot… It just comes out, lol.

  •  “How do you feel about those of us who follow unorthodox religions?” 

Well, thank you for the question first! I haven’t really thought about it, but I respect all religions. I may not agree with what they believe/ do but I still respect it. Everyone has the right to believe in something. I don’t force my religion on anyone, and if someone doesn’t believe what I believe, I still respect them.

  • “What are some things you are most proud of. (Starr)

Well, thank you for the question first! Ummm…. I’m proud of making it through my second year of High School, haha. I’m proud of keeping my blog going. I didn’t think me blogging would last this long. I can’t really think of anything else, sorry….

  • “What can you not get right, no matter how many times you try?”

~ Life…..lol

~ I have this scar on one of my fingers, here is the story behind it! So, we were in the middle of a tornado warning and all the lights went out. And, so I found this plastic lantern and I didn’t have a screwdriver, so I decided to get a knife and try to unscrew the screw in the lantern so I could put batteries in it. (Bad idea). I was pushing to hard I guess and the knife wasn’t locked so when I was pushing, it snapped and closed on my finger! So, I was sitting there in the dark with a knife in my finger!!

  • “What’s the best practical joke you’ve pulled?”

~ It was April 1, 2016 and I told my Best friend that I was moving, I wasn’t giving her very much information about it. And, then I told her my dad’s work was moving to Washington D.C. and I was leaving within a week! We both got busy doing something and we didn’t really get to talk to much and at the end of the day I handed her a piece of paper folded and she opened it and it said “APRIL FOOLS, LOVE YOU!”. She about killed me!! And, I about died of laughing so hard!!

Get to know me Q&A! Part 1

Hey, everyone! How is 2019 treating you?! Hopefully, good! I just learned that I can’t eat an apple and blog at the same time. lol. My focus was all on my apple, I couldn’t even start my title! Anyway, on with the blog, I just thought that was funny!

I want to give ya’ll an opportunity to get to know me better! This is how it will work, ask your question (or questions) down below in the comments. It would help me if you put your name at the end of your question too, but if you don’t feel comfortable doing that it’s fine. After I get a good amount of questions I will make another post (part 2) and answer all of the questions!

Side note: I will try my very best to answer all the questions, but if there is a question that is to personal or that I just don’t feel comfortable answering, I won’t. But like I said, I will try my very best to answer ALL questions!!

Feel free to ask me a lot of questions! I want to answer as many as possible!! I can’t wait to see all the questions!! Have fun with it!
