Roommate.


So I may have been hiding a little something from you all the past few weeks. I didn't want to say anything because frankly, I was too scared of jinxing the whole thing. I usually have quite the tendency to do that when I become excited about something! I wanted to wait until things were official to tell you all, and today made things, well...official! ....I have a roommate!

Eeeps, eeps, eeps! I cannot tell you all how excited/relieved/thankful I am. She is seriously such a gem. I couldn't have dreamed for anyone more perfect. She likes vintage fashion. And coffee shops. And photography. And pretty dresses. And Ryan Gosling. And and and the list goes on and on... Not to mention I was totally taken aback by the fact that she reads my blog. Like, how small of a world is this?!

I was so afraid that she wouldn't like me. That she would see all of the flaws in me that everyone else sees. That when she started to get to know me, she would find out I'm not all I'm cracked up to be. But all of my worries were just worries. We've been talking back and forth through emails for the past few weeks and today I went up to Kent to meet her for the first time. She is lovely and put me on cloud nine. Something I haven't felt in a really long time.

So since things went well, we went ahead and decided to be roommates. Me, Lauren Pfieffer has a roommate. Someone who is actually like me and someone who actually shares my common interests. I never thought this girl existed, but God proved me wrong. I can't thank you all for having faith in me and supporting me all along this way. You all kept my hope alive and helped me to keep going. You all had more faith than I did, and you taught me that I need to have more faith in myself. So thank you, thank you, thank you for all of what you guys do for me. I can't wait to take you all on my journey to college this coming fall, and I can't wait for you all to meet my new roommate either

Oh, and I am so sorry I've been so absent and have been slacking on outfit pictures. These two above are just a few quick snapshots of my outfit that I wore today. It was so (I mean SO) arctic and frigid today that I could hardly stand being outside for a minute...and the wind was so fierce that my hair kept flying in my face! I'll make sure to get some better outfit pictures tomorrow...sorry about that!

With much love, Lauren WITH a roommate.

Love the juxtaposition of your summerish outfit and the snow! Very lovely. Congrats on the roommate!

Did you know there's a famous song about Kent State by Neil Young? It's called Ohio and about the shooting there in 1970. Fun fact.

Claire said...

yay for finding a roommate! what a small world that it is that she reads your blog! what a awesome thing how god always works things out! p.s. the fact that you wore that outfit outside in the snow to take pictures just makes you even more awesome, I just get so slack in the winter about taking outfit pictures..

I isanely love these photos, they are so strong with all that snow blowing about. (And kudos for getting photos, it's really hard to shoot in the wind and snow!) The first photos is so fantastic, it looks like a painting.
And congradulations on finding a roomate! That's wonderful and I know you'll have a great year. ^_^
