Hello, my name is Suzanne.
I am a college student in Pennsylvania studying communication and Spanish. I love to write. I love to run. I love to travel. I love to bake. And I love Jesus. I want to use this blog to share my thoughts on these loves in the form of race recaps, adventures in my travels, recipes, and bible verses. Although these interests differ from one another, I don’t want to have a blog that is limited to one topic, so I will write about them all! Here is a little background on each of my passions:
Writing: I am not the most experienced writer, but I have blogged before and written a few articles for my college’s newspaper. I journal extensively, and I am always looking for new ways to express myself through writing. I like to think that with each post I write will get better and better!
Running: I am relatively new at this sport, but it has quickly become one of my favorite pastimes! I began running almost two years ago when I decided to train for a half marathon over the summer to get in shape for cross country. Four half marathons and one full later, I am addicted. I am training for the Pittsburgh Marathon currently and am so excited! Running is such a great way to get my energy and stress out; my goals are (1) to collect medals and (2) to be that fit mom that is always training for something.
Traveling: I’ve got the bug. I have had several opportunities for international travel through my family and mission trips; my current country count (not including the United States and Canada) is eleven, three central American countries and eight in Europe. I love seeing new places and making new memories; I cannot wait until my junior year when I plan to study abroad in Spain and France!
Baking: I have always loved making cookies to bring to school, desserts for dinner parties, and holiday treats. Recently I have begun to experiment with my own tweaks of recipes and have found much enjoyment in it. My brothers are very supportive of this hobby!
Last, but certainly not least, Jesus: Where do I begin with this love. Jesus has loved me through it all and has brought so much healing and freedom into my life the last few months. Though I mess up daily, he has shown me how confident I can be in what he has done for me and all the things he can use me for. He continues to astound me every day with his incredible grace and mercy. Can’t wait to see where he takes me next!
So that’s a little bit about me. Please stop by again soon!
