Lets be adventurous //

One of the things I'm most looking forward to in college is the idea of traveling and being adventurous. 
Most of the time I tend to to be very rational when it comes to the spur of the moment adventures. I like to consider all the possibilities and the pro/cons. When I had the chance to visit St. Augustine Florida this weekend I was not going to pass this opportunity up. Of course, I was hesitant thinking of staying in my cozy dorm room and working on my two papers due this week. I'm so glad I went through with it. It was a great weekend filled with adventures, friends, and delicious food. I felt like I was in Europe not Florida. It was the perfect getaway. Here's to St. Augustine adventure, and many many more.

Can't believe it's already November? I've calculated and I actually only have 32 more school days until Christmas!
Florida this past weekend was super chilly. I was not mentally ready for the 50 degree weather. To most people this is not cold weather. And trust me I get that. But HELLO this is Florida. It's supposed to be warm all the time! Just last Thursday I was wearing shorts and t-shirt. Anyways enough with the ranting.
 Have a beautiful, and blessed week.

Life Update //

  Hey Everyone,  I'm sorry it's taken me so long to update my blog. I've been meaning to upload a blog post for the past 3 weeks but every time I go down to write I get swept up with emotion.
 Three weeks ago 30 mins before my Latin class, my mother called me. I knew it was something serious because my Mom wouldn't call me during the school day. She called to inform me that my Grandmother had just tragically passed away. Never in my life have I experienced a death so close to my heart. It quite literally was the worst feeling I've ever experienced. Right after the phone call I ran to the 24 hr adoration chapel and cried and was completely stunned as thoughts swarmed my mind.  "Why did she leave us so early? I never got to say goodbye."
 I collected myself and went to class. I needed to be distracted. I went into class with my eyes bloodshot and swollen. The crazy part was while in class we had the most intense rain storm. No, it's not unusually for Florida to rain everyday. But, this rainstorm was like no other. It was as if the world was mourning with me.
 I felt a huge lump in my throat and held back tears during the entire class. Right after class, my brother and I went to Mass which probably was the most healing experience. So thankful to have him with me this year for all the love and support. 
The rest is kinda a blur honestly. My brother and I flew to Michigan for her funeral. Being able to see my family was the best thing in the entire world. Yes, it was under terrible circumstances but family was exactly what I needed. 
The whole weekend in Michigan was beautiful. It was exactly what Grandma would've wanted.  Anyways going to her funeral put me behind in schoolwork which I feel I've finally just caught up on. It's been hard getting back in the swing of things. But I miss blogging and I miss you guys. You guys are so important to me and I feel I offer it to you guys to keep you connected with my life. There will be more blog post coming. I promise I haven't left you guys. 
The past three weeks have made me appreciate my time in college and just how beautiful life is. And the importance of family.  I love you all. 

 If you want to read more up on my Grandma you can read the beautiful blog post my sister wrote right here.

                                                    My beautiful, Grandma.

                                      Thanks for reading! Now, back to studying for midterms...uck.

Mar baby Musings // Goodness

Im excited to share another Mar baby Musings with you guys! 
Before I left for Florida, Susana and I thought it would be great to do one more outing. 
College life is great, and is serving me very well. 
But one of the biggest things I've been missing is homemade food. 
Don't get me wrong the cafeteria food isn't terrible. It's just not mamma's cooking. 
Tucson, is known for having some really great eateries and today I want to share a place called "goodness". 
Not only was the food delicious, and the juice bar heavenly. 
The set up of the restaurant gave off the most quaint urban feeling. 
I can't wait to go back in December. 
Speaking of which, this is our last Mar baby Musings until December. 
(try to control your emotions).

Present Moment //

So thankful for my beautiful roommates. And their intoxicating love for God. 
Such an amazing witness in my life and many others. 

Today marks the 3rd week of school. You would think I would have the whole college routine down. But no, I don't. Everyday in college I learn something new.
 Obviously from my courses, but also new life experiences. This past week I learned how to swing dance, and that homesickness never really goes away.
 The friendships I make grow stronger everyday. My spiritual life has grown tremendously these past three weeks.
I've come to realize that my faith and spiritual life will be my strongest anchor the next four years and my whole life. Going to daily Mass during the week has taught me to take each day one at a time. Worrying about the future will get me no where. I have to learn to be completely content with whatever God's will is for me that very day.
Life is beautiful my friends. Enjoy the present moment.
And be thankful for another day to live out His will.
