if you really knew me.

 dress: c/o Simply Audrey / leggings, belt: Forever 21 / wedges: c/o Blowfish Shoes

you'd know that i'm at our church's teen summer camp all this week.
and that i have a big heart for discipleship/mentorship, particularly with younger women. 
that i cannot wait to go white-water rafting while i'm in TN. 
that i'm gonna get the chance to see one of my best friend's from high-school.
that i'm excited to share this experience with my baby sister, Ashley. 

you'd know that i am bummed to miss out on this last week of the summer Olympics.
but you'd know that i'm willing to give that up for this week of pouring into the lives of teenage girls. 
but you'd also know that if i was home, i'd be on the edge of my seat screaming for US track and missing the first week of US gymnastics, swimming and volleyball. 

other random things you'd know about me..
i was home schooled from 4th grade thru high school.
i only love working out because i love to eat food - including junk food.
i didn't love wearing dresses until last year. 
i miss Chicago. a whole freaking lot. A LOT.
i have the world's worst skin - lotion is my best friend. 
i have kept a journal since the 1st grade.


what about you? what would i know about you, friend?
copy/paste a blog post link into the comment or tell me in the comments! 

much love.
{happy tuesday, friend.}

p.s. will announce the Bait Footwear giveaway winner next week upon my arrival from camp!
all participants who have entered past midnight Tuesday, August 07 will not be included in drawing.
