Catching Up | Life in iPhone Photos | Personal

Fall is always such a busy time!  This semester has been blessedly full of amazing friends (new & old), adventures that I couldn't have imagined, and suprisingly—I still feel like the same person.  

Coming off Thanksgiving break and being back on campus is so strange.  Cedar Falls and home feels the same and "normal" as ever (except for all of my college friends being gone...) but Ames is now "home" as well.  The next three weeks are going to fly by with all the papers, projects, and studying that has to be done...part of me is SO ready for Christmas break, but some of me wants this semester to go on so we can keep making memories!

Since it's been months since my last post of personal thoughts & photos, so here are some of the highlights of this semester!






By the library // Faux Duel for my Rural Southern History Class! // The canon by the Iowa Capital with my asian friends
First time Karaoke! // Fall leaves here are HUGE // bus time=snack time
Naomi came to visit! SO excited! // we had a rainy fall (1) and (2)
When the sun shines through the leaves my heart melts
Mr. Fox sweater made his first appearance // So did Sam the Bear around Halloween...hah!
Fall is perfect for bonfires with good friends! // we also had MORE rain.
Swinging is good for the college student's soul
Campus finds—the MU and Helser dorm
Lots of bikes on campus // Homecoming crew after the fireworks!
Dress shopping & Des Moines adventuring with this bestie! (AND she got engaged the next week! YAY!)
Elegance // College is for new things like attending a military ball! 
The first snow (just a tiny bit!) and lights are up on the tree at Cafe Diem // coffee date with the SISTER!

Now that December is here (my FAVORITE month!) I'll be blogging even less (hah—is that possible?!) but you can be sure you'll hear all about December adventures. Quite a few are already in the works, and it's bound to be a month full of wonder.

Love Always,
Amelia Renee
