So far, my semester has been defined by this word, in different ways. I am counting down the days till I become a wife (108!!!) and drowning underneath the fun tasks of wedding planning. We are about to start premarital counseling with a couple at church. Trying to figure out where to live, and planning the decor of our new home. Praying for Ben daily. Joining a bible study on marriage.
Yet, one of my biggest concerns coming into this semester was not wanting to check out on my friends and commitments in College Station. I do not want my last semester of possibility to invest in these things daily to go wasted, I want to be present where I am. People talk about this all the time, but I think right now it's just especially applicable to my life, where everything is about to totally change and I'm on the verge of wishing days away so I can be bound together with my beloved.
On that note, I thought I'd share something that is helping me with this. This semester, I moved into a new house with new roommates. Me and one other girl live upstairs. On the first day I moved in, we somehow came up with the concept of taking a picture together every day, representing what we are doing or just, whatever. Courtney has challenged me to celebrate the little things and I know I will cry when we take the last "Courtney and Victoria Picture of the Day" as we call it. I am so thankful for the Lord for placing this sweet friend in my life for this time! If you'd like to see more of our pictures, follow me on twitter/instagram! @bonjourvictoria :)
