hello blogging world, I have returned!
I took a brief hiatus from blogging for a few reasons this past week. First of all, I had a huge paper on the Canterbury Tales due for my Chaucer class (yuck) and lots to do in planning ZTA's spring fundraiser.
Also, I just needed some time to think for myself about blogging. I've come to a few realizations. Oftentimes I am too busy to really go through my reader and read all the blogs I am following, but when I do I almost feel bad about myself. I know that sounds crazy, but I almost feel like an underachiever! Sometimes I think about how I don't blog as consistently, or I don't have anything fun to write about, etc etc. But I have realized that I created this blog for me. My lovely followers are just an added bonus that I LOVE. I can write at my own pace and it's not the end of the world. So as I face a busy final month and a half of school, I'm going to make sure my blogging is a fun release, not more of a stresser! All this being said, my break gave me lots of motivation and great ideas of things to blog about, and I am giddy to jump right back in!
A good break from the stress of school was my SPRING BREAK trip to the beach with my girlfriends from school! The grandmother of one of my friends owns a home on the beach in Garden City, SC, and every year we roadtrip down there to enjoy a few days as a group! I love it because accommodations are free and we can spend our money on cooking food and shopping! Here are some pictures from our week!

We had a fabulous few days of relaxation. We shopped at the J. Crew outlet (where I made out like a bandit!), enjoyed some sunny days (and sunburn) on the beach, had a blast sitting on the front porch at night hollering at cars that drove by, and took time to about reality for a while.
I'm back at home now to get some things done and spend the remainder of my break with my family. I saw the Hunger Games with my family- which I loved!- and I'm catching up with my friend Parkes tomorrow. I attended the Maundy Thursday church service last night and loved being back at my home church. It was a wonderful reminder of the reason for the season and how blessed we are on this Good Friday.
Happy Friday and I hope you all have an excellent Easter weekend!
