hi, it's just me || currently

READING- Don Quixote by Cervantes, among other books 
WRITING- to the point that I need to purchase a new Moleskine for journaling. Heavens. 
DOING- running bright and early every morning
WORKING- at school on our beloved and dear dear grounds crew
LEARNING- more about Lightroom and about how I can better edit my photos
LISTENING- to shameful amounts of pop
MEETING- up with old friends, stuff for the soul
PRAYING- Just finished 33 Days to Merciful Love. So good.
THINKING- about grad school (maybe) and my upcoming junior year (definitely)
HOPING- because I'm a pathetic optimist 
Postscript- Made some slight changes to this blog as I wanted something of a fresh start. You know how that is. However, this place will still largely remain the same, for the purpose of inspiring and creating. When I think about Heavenly Aspiration's "early days", I can only think on the friendships and charity I found through you. Thank you so much for reading, dear friends. ♥
Also. Hi, how are you?  How has your summer been?

    1. Thanks so much, Serena <3 Yes, you should!

  4. I must say, Sami, this new design really seems to fit you! And those pictures are beautiful; did you edit them in Lightroom? I bought Lightroom a few months ago, but I still have yet to learn how to use it.

    1. Hey Gabrielle! Wow, thanks a bunch. :) Yes, I did edit them in Lightroom, which is how I've been editing my photos for about the past year. However, I recently bought some VSCO presets, which I used for the photos in this post. I love these presets, and definitely recommend them! They add a different "feel". I also recommend Youtube tutorials :)

      Hope you're doing well, lovely!
