What about when you’re alone with your boyfriend or future boyfriend?
Countless friends have recently asked me this question, and I feel as though it is such a hard battle to face and discuss. I tried my best to be understanding and transparent, and every time I prayed about this for my sweet friends, a word kept coming to my mind: boundaries.

{Be Real} Stay

I’m somewhere in the middle. Not quite where I was, and not quite where I’m going. And I’ve discovered that in the middle of things is where this life meets me. One minute, I think I’m pushing forward, but in the next, life keeps coming full force in my direction. And then I find that […]

Beep. My alarm goes off and I roll in my bed. Maybe if I delay getting up I won’t have to think about all the tasks ahead of me. The emails to answer. The bills to pay. The contracts. Thousands of photographs to cull and edit. The lunch appointment. And that’s just work – there’s […]
