Who I Am

I've been working on an "about me" page for this blog, so I thought I'd make a post out of it:

My parents changed my birth name when I was 11 days old; I feel like that might explain my inability to make decisions from time to time. ;)

I'm overly sensitive, and my heart breaks for so many things in this world.

I was born in a city, yet raised in the south. My mama says the city still runs in my blood. Not to mention it'd explain the lack of a southern accent and the fast talking I do.

Most people pronounce the second "r" in Carrie even though its silent. I've learned to answer it to anyways. :)

I'm continuing to learn about beautiful grace as its lavished me on daily.

I'm learning to laugh at myself and not take life so seriously.

Thank you notes are my love language to the world.

I love the south from the endless monograms to the fact that I can find sweet tea about every .5 miles.

This year I'm working on being fearless and taking every opportunities that come my way.

I live in shades of color; anything bright and happy. I have been known to wear pink a time or two. ;)

I have a bit of a stubborn side but I'm learning to use to not give up on my dreams.

I continually remind to be the change I wish to see the world and give a voice to the voiceless.

I'm a dreamer and still learning what it means to bring my dreams to life.

I believe words of encouragement are like medicine to the soul. So I try and take every opportunity to say as many kind things, as often as I can, to any many people as I can.

I'm a avid runner. I love marveling at God's creation on my long runs. Someday I'm hoping to cross the finish line of a marathon.
