NAS: One Year Anniversary and Year in Review

How has your life changed in the past year? How has this community impacted you?
Have fun with this! Fave post? What would you like to see more of? Anything, really!

I know I haven't posted everything single Tuesday for the NAS but this week I could not pass it up.  I cannot believe it has been an entire year since this community began.  And I really mean community, I feel like I have gotten to know a group of lovely ladies and shared things with you that I otherwise wouldn't have.  More importantly I have gotten to learn so much wisdom from you gals and learned, well, that I am very much not alone.  I became part of a group of women who are striving for holiness and seeking to love the Lord more fully.

There are so many things that have happened over this past year in my own life.

I had a whirlwind summer nannying four days a week and attending five weddings including watching one of my best friends get married.

I started my fifth and last year of college.

Knights and Angels Nursing Majors

I went to Florida for Spring Break and got to meet Jen from Jumping in Puddles.

I celebrated two years in Regina Angelorum.

Five of the Nine Girls in my Intent class
I graduated nursing school.  I graduated nursing school.  I graduated nursing school. (Still trying to get that one to sink in.)

Lined up and Ready to Go 

When it comes to the NAS it is hard to pick my favorite post from an entire year.  Recently it was great to talk about my discernment which was a really important thing in my life. The Single Life Bucket List was fun.  The first paragraph of this one still makes my heart go pitter patter.  And this one was very popular and well received.  Looking back it was a year of great posts. 

I know this year has so much in store.  It is the year I am really going to step out and put on my big girl panties, get a job and move into my apartment.  I am not going to try to pretend that I know all the Lord has in store for me.  I know it might become clear to me if I am going to midwife school and/or traveling abroad to become a missionary.  I also know I might meet the man who I will one day call hubby. No matter what happens I am excited for another year of adventure, of unexplored territory, of joy, of love, and of passionately following the Lord.  And I hope and pray that this NAS community will continue to grow and that you will join me here on the bloggity to celebrate all that life has to offer.

P.S.  I was just pointed to an article on the Chastity Project about Sleeping with Men (like literal zzzs) that I will defiantly be sharing and commenting on asap.
