    Happy
    MY ROOMMATE FROM FRESHMAN YEAR IS BACK FROM LITHUANIA AND I FORGOT HOW MUCH I LOVED HER

    Bent
    There are so many Christians hell-bent on keeping the word "homosexuality" out of church or any conversation. But at my (Christian) college, there is a group designed to welcome these exact conversations on to campus. (And they make our sidewalks beautiful during finals week)

    Heights
    A throwback picture to that time we had a fabulous photo shoot in an apple orchard and Miriam successfully grabbed the perfect apple from my shoulders.
  5. 5.
    Shallow
    Because the past couple days have been an inner struggle of "Am I so shallow that I create my own Instagram page for some crazy dream that I have?" and "This is my ultimate dream, and if I don't start taking steps in that direction, I won't get anywhere."
  6. 6.
    Drip
    I admittedly suck at this, so the following 9 pictures were taken on the weekend of the 12th— I woke up to the gentle drip of rain. Unpleasant as it is to stand in, rain is beautiful to hear.

    Look at that handsome fiancé sitting on the wall... after he just got done asking me "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!"

    On the Road
    I spent May 10th preparing for the 6-hour road trip up to visit boo. And by preparing I mean putting together a 🔥🔥 playlist, with geniuses like Blackbear to accompany me.

    Sweet
    The sweetest thing this boy has ever done for me... and that's saying A LOT... he asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. And I am beyond words. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ List App, I AM A FIANCÉE

    Blue
    We got our pics back from the profesh photographer... look at that beautiful blue lake and sky... 😍

    Black/white
    I took this picture in the bathroom of a movie theatre because the lighting was GREAT. Also, I am obsessively photographing this beauty.
  15. 15.
    Trees
    There were A LOT of trees on the sad 6-hour drive home from NY. And also this beautiful bridge.

    Fluffy
    LOOK AT THAT FLUFFY HAIR

    Time
    I took TIME out of two days to visit my home girl Lea in Baltimore. And even though that was 4 hours of driving on top of the 12 I did last weekend, the good food was worth it. #FoodTour2017

    On My Plate
    This one is incredibly appropriate to document #FoodTour2017 further. On day 2, I saw many delicious things on my plate, including crab tater tots and a sushi burrito (pictured)

    Painted
    Okay I swear this is the last one, but I can't help taking pictures with my perfectly painted nails and new bling 💖

    Outside
    This is a low-quality picture of my beautiful sis, BUT today we celebrated my cousin's graduation by making s'mores around the fire 😍
  21. 21.
    Hard work
    It's also incredibly appropriate that the next two days have the same title, because in my book they felt like one day. And because of 6-hour jet lag, it was HARD WORK to stay awake until bedtime. So here's a cute map of PA turnpike exits we had to use to get to the airport today...
  22. 22.
    Hard work
    ...and here's a sweet pic of the seminary (resort?) we're staying in 💕
  23. 23.
    Space
    The inside of Gaudí's Sagrada Familia... enough space for hundreds of tourists... and breathtakingly beautiful
  24. 24.
    Dark
    The overlook of Monserrat through the dark, shadowy slats of the balcony.
  25. 25.
    A pet
    I swear everyone in Spain has a dog... but look at that cutie pie!
  26. 26.
    Motion
    In the comMOTION of the city of Barca, I still managed to get a pic of my love 😍
  27. 27.
    A wish
    In the spirit of having to leave tomorrow... I wish I could stay in Barca forever.

    Captured a moment before we taxied to takeoff... Bye, Barcelona.

    Rough
    The only picture I captured in our day in Sevilla. Because my phone crashed at 1pm and that's was ROUGH.
