Hello! ♥
Happy to be back on my beautiful campus and in my comfortable dorm room after a long weekend of being away at a fall conference with The Navigators. I really enjoyed myself, but trips always seem to be less fun when you get back to reality and the exhaustion kicks in. Sinus issues don't help either, but I'll make it through just fine!

I am definitely glad I went on this fall conference, but it didn't have as much of an impact on me as it did last year. But I mean, how could there be a bigger impact than giving your life to Christ? I suppose I have to think of it that way. I did come to a pinnacle of realization though on a thought that's been bothering me for awhile and it feels good to have released all of that anguish and frustration at the retreat. It's just one of those beautiful moments when you're worshiping and then you're overcome with emotion and can't help but fall down on your knees sobbing. An awesome and heartbreaking feeling all at once but it was one I really needed and it helped make the weekend feel worth it/impactful. I was also able to meet and connect with a lot of other NAVS kids new and old which I'm really grateful for because it always seems like I'm struggling to build relationships here.

I will say I am quite socialized out and look forward to spending some time alone the next few days catching up on my 'introvert' time. 

Hope all of your weekends were good! x

With much love, Lauren.

First of all, I kinda wanna steal that sweater! It looks so perfect the way you styled it.

Secondly, I'm so happy for your "breakthrough" moment at the conference! It's so nice when things come together or when God shows you something you couldn't see before. What an awesome moment. :)

Hello, I am a 14 year old girl going through freshman year and I just wanted to say that your positivity and work ethic make you an absolute role model to me. I also love fashion and am a believer in Christ and reading your blog just makes my day and reflect on my overall happiness to others. Thank you for being a role model to many.

Discover of life is Bella, I forgot to say that. I just didn't have an e-blogger yet so I created one.

I'm glad you had a good time at the conference! It really is those breakdown moments when we feel closest to God.

And your outfit is lovely, Darling! Love the c/o Jazzmans line ;)

Such beautiful colours in these photos! I've been looking at so many US bloggers photos and wishing that autumn was like that for us in Australia...
Also... I know exactly what you mean about "introvert time" - It's great going out and socialising, but I always end up needing time by myself to recharge! (glad I'm not the only one!)
