always with me.

Were you wondering where on earth I disappeared to? Well, lets just say that finals took over my life. For two whole weeks.

I thought I was going to die...

I didn't. Hallelujah!

And now, I'm sitting here, at the computer, with my seventh grade year behind me, and it's weird, for lack of a better word.

Last Summer, I was freaking out about the whole "going to a new school" thing. I had nightmares about it every night. I was worried...about everything. Finding friends, fitting in, being able to handle all the school work. I was worried sick.

Now I realize how dumb it was for me to be so worried.

I have a God who loves me and who is always with me, right? Yes. He's all-knowing, and has a plan for my life. Before I was created, He knew all that has happened to me and what's still going to happen to me.

And now I see that I had no reason to be worried or scared.

God knew that I would love my new school. God knew that I would make friends and would be able to handle the school work. He had my 7th grade year all perfectly planed out.

I am thankful.

So, so, thankful.
And now I can look at this last year, where I was terrified about everything that was going to happen, and see how much God blessed me.

This last year, was probably one of the biggest years of my life. I started at a new school, I become a communicant member of my church, I saw my first picture of my new little brother, I made some amazing friends, got my hair cut super short, got my braces, and then there are so many more things that happened too.

But I think the biggest thing, was that I grew more in my walk with my savior.

And that, right there is the most important thing that can ever happen in my life. He is my salvation, my rock, my fortress. And I know, that he will never leave me or forsake me.

And, well, right now, I am ready and excited for next year. I'm pretty sure that next year is shaping up to be the best year yet. I'm ready.

Because I found a new website. Called Pintrest.

Because I love these pictures.

Because it's Wednesday.

Because not very much homework, and a cloudy day, makes me happy.

today is a special day


Because exactly one year ago today, I started this blog. I can completely remember when my dad finally said yes to my pleading. I can remember sitting down, and trying so hard to figure out a name.

A lot has changed since then. I mean a year ago? That's a pretty long time!

Anyways, to celebrate, I have a couple surprises for you...

one: go look in the comments section! There's a whole new format! So, now I have Disqus installed on Frills! It was super easy to install, and so far, I really like it. BUT...there's one sad part about it. It deleted every comment I've ever gotten! :( I was so sad when I figured that out. Just please know that I loved every. single. comment. I ever got, and I am so sorry they were deleted!

two: I'm going to start doing a couple video blogs...also known as vlogs. :) They should be pretty fun! I'll be talking a little more about them soon, so be sure to check back every now and then.

three: (I've been saving the very best for last!) I've started a brand new photo blog! It's actually a 365 blog, meaning that I'll take a picture everyday and then post it on there. Click HERE to see it! And don't worry, I'll still be posting here too!

Wow, what a year this has been! I mean at the beginning of it, only invited readers could see it. Now, anyone can see it, and I've gone from having 2 followers, to 9! That's huge for me.

Thank you so much for reading my blog, and commenting. It really does mean a lot to me!

I hope that next year is even better!

{i woke up to...}

...Brand new pictures of our new brother.

Oh. my. goodness. Just look at that sweet little face!

Let's just say that right now that excited, is a huge understatement.

I am loving that everyday that goes by, I'm a day closer to meeting him. One day closer to getting on that plane. One day closer to bring him to his forever home.

Does he know that there is a family half way across the world that is just dieing to meet him? Does he know that God loves him and has always been with him? Does he know that he is loved, by so many people?
There are so many unknowns right now, but one thing I do know, is that God is with him. God has a plan. And even when we might feel like it's a lifetime until we'll get to see his sweet little face in person, we know that God is preparing our hearts for him, and his little heart for us.

I am thankful, so, so thankful that God led us to him, and that soon, he will be here with us.

But, man, being patient is hard. :)

Mei-Mei, my sister, has to be the funniest thing that has ever existed. Everyday she says or does things that just about makes me fall over laughing.

Here's the conversation I had with her the other day...

Me: "Moriah, guess what? I love you!"
Moriah: "Oh thanks, I love me too!"
Me: "You love yourself?"
Moriah: "Yup."

No self esteem issues there! :) Man, I love this girl!

She makes me laugh. A lot.

With this precious little man!
In just a matter of months, I'll get to meet him. The wait is killing me, but I am so excited!

Some of my close friends are coming to the school I go to next year! I am so excited! How awesome will it be to have some of my closest friends there? Very!

Aren't they adorable?! I sure think so.

blown away.
So I made my blog "public!" Now anyone and everyone can see it. Even people in Antarctica. Even people who I don't actually know. Scary, but insanely exciting! Since making it so that anyone can see it, I've gone from getting 4 views, to 110! Y'all! This requires a happy dance! Thank you so much for reading this 'lil blog! Every time I get a comment or a new follower, I get really excited. Just ask my family. They've seen more happy dancing lately then ever before! :)

The weather. is. amazing. Yesterday, we took a break from school, and got subway, went to the park, and took pictures. Perfect day!

lookin' forward.
To wearing Summer things soon! No more long sleeve shirts and scarves for this girl!

So, what's making you happy today?
