thank goodness, i'm not a celebrity.

where to even begin? this has been one caaaaa-razy summer. i feel like i have overused the word whirlwind to describe my summer...but that does not make it nonetheless true.

soooo whirlwind, it is.

from the madness of a fast-paced job to preparing for an awesome ministry opportunity this upcoming fall to visiting my parents and sister in South Carolina over 4th of July weekend to (last but not least!) moving to a new apartment over this past weekend. (raise your hands to the roof!)

whew. i feel like i need to catch a breath even after typing all of that.

which made me randomly thing: can you imagine a life of a celebrity? whether an actress? to the president of the US? to anybody who's schedule is jammed packed by their agent or publicist - or really someone other than yourself? you want to go take a nap and somebody is like um, no. you have to go hang out with barbara walters for that interview. or you want to just go get a quick work out in but then someone else is like no, you have to go hang out with taylor swift even though you don't want to but it'll get your instagram likes up and you can use the extra exposure! 

and you just want to say, i'll hang out with taylor swift when i want to! i just want to take a freakin' nap!

but because i'm not a celebrity and though my life is crazy busy, i can still go take a nap and go work out or read a book of snuggle with my husband because i freakin' can.

thank goodness, i'm not a celebrity.
