    Sorry, Not Sorry.

    I used to be very cautious about how and whom I would speak about my beliefs, my religion spiritual journey, my jesus and my life to. But in the last few weeks,  I have stopped caring. I am no longer afraid of offending someone or making someone uncomfortable with my choices and my love for Christ.

    Tough Love

    I’ve had so many single friends ask me what being married is like – “EMILY! OMG!? Do you just loooove being married? Is it just wonderful??” –  I always, ALWAYS pause before answering.

    Re.Soul.ing?

        “You can resole your boots but you cant resoul yourself, so be careful where your walk is taking you.”- Emily Elizabeth   (Source) Not too long ago, I had to get my favorite boots fixed. I got them for my 19th birthday my freshman year of college. They have been with me for the worst parts of my life- for the all the rough phases I’ve gone through and a lot of the bad choices I have made in the past 3 1/2…
