Love List


I can’t believe this is my last September post already! Being so busy in school makes time fly by, and I have a sneaky suspicion that it’ll be graduation before I know it. I’m trying really hard to be present in everything I do right now, because I know that as frustrating as my classes get or noisy as living in a college neighborhood gets, I’m going to miss this part of my life after it’s over. My decision to stay in school for a fifth year and transfer to UT last year was a difficult one, but the biggest blessing that has come out of it is being able to know I’m in the right place at the right time. October is going to be such a great month to fully enjoy where I am–from football-packed weekends, to the legendary Texas-Oklahoma rivalry game in Dallas coming up, to the beginning of fall, to lots of fun things going on with my sorority. I intend to be present and enjoy the ride.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Love, Lisa

    Well, I love everything about this love list!! My favorite though, is that flower headpiece. So sweet and pretty. Glad you’re enjoying your time in Texas and I’m so happy your decision to stay in school has been a good one for you :) I’m excited to come to TX and get my share of the crazy football lovers at Baylor!
