bittersweet; a new fresh start in the blogging world

I feel like I need a new fresh start. 

A new beginning. 


A new blog. 


A whole new empty space to write. 


Now, I'm currently just stuck on figuring out a new name that really and truly reflects me and my life right now. I really could use your prayers. 


I'm just going to be completely honest here, Practically Pink just isn't "me" anymore and every single time I go to post on here, I feel completely uninspired and I absolutely hate that feeling. I haven't posted in weeks and it's literally KILLING me not to have a place to write and share what's on my heart.  I truly feel like God is telling me to rest in Him; that He has big plans ahead, so I'm trying to not be distracted by other things and listen to Him. 

I just thought you all should know what is going on over here lately and what my excuse is for not posting like normal.  I've just been taking some time to reflect on where I am in my life right now and really sit down and pray about a new blog.  I've grown up so much since I started Practically Pink in 2008 (I was 14 and a half years old) and so many things have happened in my life since I published my first post on here. I guess I'm just in a new stage of life now and I'm not a little girl anymore just trying to express herself through words.  It's bittersweet to even think about starting a new blog, but I'm excited to see all that God has in store for me and I will definitely let you all in on any big news I have to share or whatever He lays on my heart.  So stay tuned, my friends. You never know what might happen. ;)

Until next time, sweet readers. God Bless you all. 

xoxo,

Hello Monday {North Carolina}

{Hello Monday}

Hello airports and going through security.

Hello loads of luggage everywhere you turn and lots of people heading in all sorts of directions.

Hello four plane rides across the country.

Hello new experiences.

Hello gorgeous blue skies and pretty white fluffy clouds.

Hello meeting new people and saying goodbye to 22 new sisters from all over the country.

Hello quiet time on the plane as the sun is setting.

Hello long quiet moments of thinking about how awesome these last few days have been in Washington state.

Hello much needed sleep and watching the city lights from above in the sky.

Hello North Carolina--Oh, how I've missed the south.

Hello sweet family waiting for my late flight to come into town and lots of hugs.

Hello home sweet home.
