Craziness! (And a Message to Readers)


Hey, everyone!

Just a quickie post to let y’all know that yes, I am still alive! 😉 Life has been super hectic lately; I’m in the middle of a big transition and honestly, posting has been the last thing on my list of priorities lately. I’ve just been SO slammed with homework and commitments in these past few weeks since school started…I’m so sorry to have left you all hanging for over a month!  But I’m hoping to post this weekend — I have a few great posts in store, like the second installment of photos from my trip to France this summer, a new Quote of the Day (which I’m aware we haven’t done in forever), and a Faith post taking a closer look at what it means to really trust God, something I’ve been contemplating a lot lately as I try to navigate the most recent set of challenges life has thrown at me. Now, obviously, that’s not all going to happen this weekend, but you can look forward to those things in the coming weeks.

This is what my desk looks like right now!

I’m going to try and post more often; I know I’ve been really bad about that. But even if I don’t get to posting this weekend, I’m not going to stress, because I don’t do this blog for anyone but me. This blog is a reflection of my heart and everything that makes me who I am. It is a place for me to come and pour out my all my innermost thoughts and feelings and to share my gifts and passions. If you like what I have to say, then great! I’m so thrilled that you enjoy reading what I write, and I hope you’ll visit often. If not…well, you probably wouldn’t be reading this right now. And that’s okay too — everyone’s entitled to their own thoughts and beliefs. But all I’m trying to say is that I’m not going to worry about posting too much, because this blog is for me. I post whenever I feel inspired and moved to post, and I’m not going to stress out if I just can’t find the time. I hope you all understand.  I am so, so thankful to all of you who follow SOTR, who actually take the time to read my lengthy posts and leave comments. Thank you so much, and I hope you’ll stay with me as I try to navigate my frenzied life!  Stay tuned for some new posts coming up (hopefully) soon!

Your friend, Olivia
