This is an ode to a wonderful time in my life. When i was a junior i spent a sememster in Europe at two great bible schools. Rio Vida (the first 3 pics) was a bible school in Alicante, Spain. Then i spend a few months at another bible school in Carnforth, England. We lived in a castle!
Both places are so great and beautiful, but what was so impactful was the way i learned who i was and who i was in christ. the friends and relationships i made will last for a lifetime. (a little blog shout out to mini and jumbo 🙂 i love and miss you girls!) Basically, we lived together, played together, traveled together and learned about jesus together. so wonderful to have that kind of community. It is hard to believe that it was 5 years ago! in some ways it seams like yesterday! but so much has happened since then too. i graduated college and grad school, got involved with a life-changing ministry, fell in love and got married to a wonderful godly man (my bluejay). i guess i am just feeling reminiscent. it’s been nearly a year since i was last in europe. that may be the longest time i’ve been away from that wonderful place in the past 6 years! i think i need to plan another trip. anyone want to come backpacking across europe with me????
