natalie








If you've kept up with the blog for awhile, you probably have heard me talk about my friend Natalie before. And you've probably seen pictures. So here's more of both.

Natalie likes to talk, but she's always ready to listen. I love how honest she is. As I said a long time ago, and as she likes to remind me, "Be authentic." I like how we can talk about the most sobering subjects one hour and the next be laughing our heads off.

Natalie has such a servant's heart and it's neat and challenging to see Jesus work in her. One day we were talking about college and marriage and all that crazy stuff. Then she said something that stuck with me. "I want to get married one day, but I don't know when that'll be. I just think it would be cool to do a bunch of service projects and serve other people until I get married."  What teenage girl thinks that way? I keep thinking about what she said, and wow, that shows some maturity and selflessness.

Natalie (since I know you're reading this) here's to more deep conversations in antique stores, free hot chocolates from handsome baristas, walks in the freezing cold, scary car-rides with me, adventures exploring streets with our cameras, and sleepovers with peanut oil. You're the best and we're going to get together soon -- I promise.
