Throwback Thursday – Mama Mia, I went to Italy!

Almost two years ago, I had the opportunity to go to Italy for 2 weeks.  All. By. Myself.

This was one of the best trips of my life and one of the best moments in my life.  You see, this trip was more than a work trip and lavish vacation tied into one for me.  It was the time I found the self-love and acceptance I so desperately needed.  It was the season of life that I was alone and I was finally okay with that.  It was me growing closer to God and thanking him for the many things I had questioned about in my life just three years prior.  It was me being so proud of myself and all that I’ve done. And it was me pushing myself out of my comfort zone farther than I ever thought possible.  I met so many new people on this trip from all over the world and heard their stories.  I learned that no matter the country and cultural differences, we all experience similar struggles whether it’s love or figuring out what we want to do in life. I look back at this video that I made and always smile.  Not only am I reminded of the amazing trip I experienced, but I’m reminded of God’s love and faithfulness.

Side note: I traveled to Rome, Trieste, Island of Capri, Venice, Tuscany, and Naples.  I got to hike an active volcano, experience a Gondola Ride, throw a coin in the Trevi Fountation, explore the Coliseum, tour a winery, and so much more.  Italy is and will always be my first love.

Navigating My Season of Transition

Oh hey y’all!  It’s me, Cassie!  You know the girl who has been MIA from this blog for the past 5 months. Either way, I am back!  But not only am I back, I am writing this post from my hotel room all the way in Switzerland!! Far from home, across the world, and I happened to look back at my blog today and read my last post (not the outfits, the expectations post) and inspired myself to write a post.  Honestly, since I got here in Switzerland, I have had a lot on my mind and a blog post has been brewing in my head.  A post about what I have been going through, where I am at in life currently, and just what I have learned.  Because let me tell y’all, a lot has changed since May.  A lot has changed in my life in general since the beginning of the year.  At the beginning of the year I felt the Lord telling me how 2018 was going to be a Challenging year.  Maybe challenging is not the best word to describe it.  More like a year that I was really going to have to lean on the Lord and trust Him in some of life’s challenging moments.  On October 7th, 2018 I can confirm that has been pretty darn accurate.  I plan on sharing these things and my struggles, because once again if sharing my life can help or encourage just one person, then this blog is all worth it.  Mission accomplished.

One big thing I want to share briefly is that I am now in a relationship!!! I got a boyfrand y’all!!!

Finally. About. Dang. Time.
