My month of July in California was absolutely incredible. I only returned back in Houston a few hours ago (sleep deprived, of course…surprise surprise), but I’m reliving many memories already. Though I was sad to leave, I was most excited to see my little sister again. I’m so thankful for the time I got to spend to soak up some sun, try some good eats, make new friends from across the world, enjoy fellowship, and spend time away from everyday life. I believe it was a much-needed recharge before heading back to school again this semester and I’m very inspired and determined to make some new changes in my life. I missed talking to y’all! When does school start for you?
