Not All Who Wander Are Lost… Or Are They?

LOTR_01

As much as it pains me to say this, Mr. Tolkien, you’re wrong.

If you know me, you know I’m a huge fan of Lord of the Rings and I would never say such fighting words. However, I’m beginning to think that Tolkien didn’t have one of those first days of college.

Monday, I might have been walking briskly around campus trying to find all of my classes. I might have walked into the wrong classroom but I acted as if it was totally natural and walked right out to find the right one. However, when it was said and done, Monday was a somewhat hectic, but good day.

How was your first day? Did you have an awesome day? Or maybe an embarrassing moment? Leave your story in a comment below!

Mountain love.

Mountains are love.

They’re simple. They’re natural. They’re proof that God exists.

Mountains are home.

Mountains are abandoned.

Mountains are friendships.

Yet at the end of the weekend, the flatness of West Texas is calling me home where a tractor awaits me.

Adventures of the Folklore Four

College isn’t complete without a road trip. Period.

With the closing of summer, the Folklore Four decided to embark on a journey to Apsley Alpines in Colorado.

Meet the Folklore Four:

Jayce Jane Apsley
(Top left)
She is your average Jane. Reigning from a ranch in Southeast Kansas, she is a punchy cowboygirl. Yes, cowboygirl. Don’t get confused.

Allison Myers
(Top right)
She’s our token, free-spirited New Mexican. An adventurous, wayfaring, coffee drinker, she’s often recognized by her large green glasses. She has mastered the art of wingin’ it, and most of all, hopes to let His story shine through hers.

Abigail Grace Miller… Me
(Bottom left)
I’m just your book loving, tractor driving free spirit. Rather than see my name in bright lights, I’d take seeing my name printed in ink any day.

Lacey Roberts
(Bottom right)
Our fair-skinned Elfin princess has a talent for photography, which speaks of her passion of capturing the world just as it is… Which is beautiful.

Stay tuned for the adventures of the Folklore Four…
