I wish with all that is in me that I could describe to you all how incredible this past week (well, actually two weeks, but specifically this past week) was. Incredible is one of those words that is WAY too overly used. I really mean it by it's definition though (so extraordinary as to seem impossible). It was just... such an awe-inspiring time.... with... well, I'm going to refer to everyone as my family, 'cause that's what it felt like. God, my close friends, my new friends. We were all just one happy family. It was wonderful. That's about as far as I can go in the description aside from the fact that I wanted to never leave that place...ever. God changed me. I'm not the exact same person I was at the beginning of that week. I'm new.
22 days until Florida.

Myrtle Beach has been awesome so far to say the least. To be honest, it's been more than vacation. It's been a journey, and I don't care whether or not you think I'm making it seem like way more than it is, but I'm serious, this has been amazing. To actually take a few days and slow down from everyday life, the hustle and bustle, and just relax and do nothing. It amazes me to no end how some people hate silence. Hate doing nothing. Hate being alone. I love it. I love the opposite too, but I just love silence and all that stuff. This has been an incredible week of getting reconnected with Jesus. It's been sweet getting to hang out with iEvan. It's been awesome getting to ride the huge waves at the beach. It's been awesome celebrating birthdays. It's been great being with my family. It's been incredible being in warm weather and sunshine. It's just so relaxing.
And I guess that one of the greatest things of all which goes way further than this text is that I'm soaking up every moment of life right now. I'm moving in a month and two days from now. There's a possibility that the next time I will see my house/friends/whatever once we move is Christmas. Do you know how psycho that is? Again, I'm excited for this adventure, but more and more things, both good and possibly bad, are hitting me one by one. This is gonna get really intense really fast, so I'm enjoying what I guess you can call the calm before the storm. I know God will help me along, as he is always with me no matter what.
I'm going to bed right now. Just wanted to give everyone an update. The PT stuff is sounding incredible. iEvan and I made t-shirts. I had a cake (for my mom too) for my birthday. I am getting a tan. I love water, and I think if reincarnation were true, I'd want to be a fish.
Next stop.... Virginia.
