Although more recently I've been straying away from wearing jewelry with my outfits, I have always been an accessories devotee. I gravitate toward rings and necklaces more than anything else. They sell for such high prices these days, so making my own has been gratifying for both my wallet and my taste. My eye is for simple pieces, but I try to stay true to the boho in me.

back to the heart of worship

I was wholly rejuvenated yesterday after church service at Hillsong LA. The warm welcoming, unashamed expression of love for our God, freeing worship, and a passionately challenging message brought me back to that place of simple surrender and restful peace with Jesus that I had been struggling to return to for a while. My heart and mind connect the most intensely with worship. Music is what I have the greatest response to and it makes me most sensitive to the heart of Jesus. 

Hillsong's latest worship album is on repeat in my apartment. Love songs of adoration. 

"Jesus is crazy about you. He is madly in love with you." That's all I needed to hear

I'm back!

Quite a bit has happened in the last few months. I quit my job in the hopes of finally leaving the nest and getting out of all that I was too used to. After a testing couple of months, everything panned out. I'm now living out on my own in a new city and beginning a new job as a behavior specialist at an elementary school. While waiting for the LAUSD schools to start, I've had a lot of time on my hands, which has allowed me to settle into my apartment, explore the city, and bask in the beauty of independence. Here are a few snippets of what has been going on in my new home sweet home of los angeles. :)
