I can't.

all the moments and memories captured, the people I miss, the leaps I've taken - the glimpses of heaven. It's like every day gets better, even with the messes. God's on the move, guys.

  6. I loved reading this. :D My favorite part was probably the Emporer's New Groove gif. Either that or the three random "ones" in the middle of your exclamation points after you said you got accepted by your college. :P I'm guessing that was an accident, but it was great. ;D And your little siblings sound so cute! I wasn't blessed with little siblings so...:) If I may ask, what is your book about? And let's see...favorite thing about June? Ummm...getting to see my BFF after almost a year of being apart? Yeah, I guess that's a good one. :) I'm really excited. Happy Memorial Day, by the way. I'm not actually sure if we're supposed to say Happy Memorial Day, but I hope you're having a great day, anyway. :)

HAHA THANK YOU FOR SAYING THAT NOW I CAN TELL HER HEHE XD ooohhhh gosh. that's like the #1 question that makes writers cringe XD It's a christian contemporary novel based on the idea that meeting one person can change your life, basically -- but that's waaayy boiled down. lol haha same for you <333

      Delete
    2. Haha, yep! Definitely serious. :D And I'M SORRY I ASKED YOU THE WORST QUESTION TO WRITERS EVER. Your book sounds amazing, though. I hope I get to read it someday. ^_^ Also, thanks for making me laugh. Your blog has just the perfect mixture of humor and seriousness, and I just love it so much. Thank you. <3

  7. Favorite part of this post has to be where you listed the funny little things your siblings said. I was smiling and laughing and then nearly crying. BUT IT'S ALSO SO AWESOME THAT YOU GOT ACCEPTED INTO COLLEGE!! And gahhhh, Juliiiaaa, you made me so so happy with your link to my blog and your kind words! Thank you!

    Also, maybe you can encourage me, 'cause I'm also trying to stay away from sugar but it's soooo harddd...sugar avoid-ers unite!

  12. Listening to records on record players is the best *high five* now I'm missing my record player. Can't believe I didn't think to try fit it in my suitcase ;P
    And your uncle sounds awesome like all mine!! Mine walked is and eats my ice cream and I'm like "Hello" - even though that was the SECOND time seeing him this trip ;P
    Not really looking forward to June cause that's means I'm gonna be going home and will miss all these wonderful ppl! Friday is coming way too fast!! *tries to slow the clock* but you know what, I do miss my family and my bedroom and my record player and my mountain and my coffee shops and my.... Well, it probably will be good to be home once I'm actually there. You never know what life will bring, and my life has changed forever since this trip - it will never be the same again. Kinda curious what June will have around the corner. (The huge change is... Well, Felicity now has a boyfriend *squeals and dies and hides face and is so happy for her*)
    But this vacation has been so amazing!! Why can't it last forever!?
    I've done so much this month too. And it's been awesome and I'm so thankful that God had me come here because it was a well needed trip. <3 also, so glad you had such an awesome month too.

  13. This whole post is awesome, but I cracked up when I read this: "Guys be careful what you say - julia might write it down on her blog!!" Your poor siblings are never safe in your house... *shakes head sadly and chuckles*

    OKAY BUT SERIOUSLY CAN I JUST HUG YOUR LITTLE SIBLINGS?? They are the cutest. <3

    Omw, the razor thing. XD I would probably be upset, honestly, but I'm glad you didn't mind. *laughs*

    Also MARY POPPINS. It came out 3 days before my birthday (not the year obviously :P), so we're almost birthday twins. *highfive*
