Happy Columbus Day! I don’t have school today, so you can find me rooted on my couch catching up on homework and maybe napping…we’ll see. I haven’t participated in Week in Review for awhile, but I’m hopping back on the train this week. Thanks Meg for the link up.
The week itself was nothing to write home about. I went to school, grocery shopped, ran a little, you know, the usual. Friday and Saturday were the highlight. Bethany and I went down(up? west? Hi my name is Vangie, and I have no sense of direction.) to Geneva College to visit Olivia, one of my favorite people on the planet, who is starting her freshman year there. Thankfully Olivia’s dad drove us down, so we got to spend the car ride talking and catching up. Beth is such a beautiful person. We went to the same school for grades 5-8 before I switched schools. It was like we were never apart though. She has such an open, loving personality.
The drive up to Geneva is beautiful. The leaves are starting to change. Ahh fall, you beautiful season you.
We got there around 4:30pm on Friday and went to dinner. Car rides make me hungry. I forgot to take a picture, but we ate at this really adorable Italian diner. They gave me a bowl of pasta comparable in size to a moon crater. Major win.
After a quick campus tour, Olivia, Beth, and I headed back to Liv’s dorm room and stayed up talking. I always feel so refreshed when I spend time with these two lovely ladies. They’re so genuine.
The next morning we woke up, ate breakfast in Liv’s dorm, and picked up our conversation from where we left off the previous night. Then we walked around campus. The weather was so lovely…cool and windy.
Lunch was at a little restaurant called Breaking Bread. So much awesome food. NOM.
Leaving was really hard for all of us, but that’s a beautiful thing. Being so close to someone, that it really hurts when you’re away from each other, is a gift. Relationships like that are unique. They’re rare. I feel incredibly blessed to share one with dear Olivia.
She is such a shining light. Seeing her thriving in this new environment was a blessing. For all of my insecurities and anxieties about college and the change that comes with it, being able to see Liv wholeheartedly trusting in Christ to carry her, was comforting. I left the college a bit tearfully, LIVVY I MISS YOU, but with a whole lot of peace in my heart.
Until next time Geneva 🙂
Bye loves ❤
