We’re moving!

So, after some thought, I’ve decided to switch from WordPress to Blogspot. So, now, you can find Cloudy right here! I’m still working on the design and all that jazz, but hopefully pretty soon it’ll be all pretty and fixed 🙂 Hopefully you’ll still follow and enjoy!

Be Well!

It’s coming.

Save the date: On September 30th… I’ll be dropping something.

Big.

I’ve been working really hard for over a month on this, and I’m so excited to share it with ya’ll.

Spread the word.

We Are Book 8

A few weeks ago was the seventh anniversary of the release of the final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It’s so weird to think I’m old enough that seven years ago, I felt like my childhood ended and a beautiful door was being closed forever.

I saw a shirt on the anniversary with the words “We are Book 8”. At first I was confused. How are we, the fans, a continuation of the Harry Potter books? Then, I understood.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Harry Potter teaches the importance of love, friendship, bravery, and selflessness, among many other precious and priceless lessons.

It isn’t just the characters who learn these lessons, but the readers as well. It is up to us, the Harry Potter generation, to continue the lessons that we were once taught to us by an orphaned boy who lived under a staircase.

May we live the values and qualities that would encapsulate book 8, if JK Rowling ever graced us with it. 🙂

He Gives and Takes Away.

In less than ten years, my parish has had five pastors. Yesterday, our fourth officially stepped down as pastor and moved to another parish where he will be an assistant.

Each pastor who has been at my church has touched my life and helped me see Jesus in ways I had never seen Him before. Especially Father Murphy.

Father Murphy was installed as pastor when I was sixteen or seventeen. It was around the time I was hospitalized for the last time for self harm, and began attending public school after being homeschooled for my entire life. I was confused about my faith, and Father Murphy made me sure again. In the confessional, at the pulpit, when he prayed so devoutly before mass in the pews, just… everywhere.

Although I am heartbroken to be losing his holy man of God, I feel so blessed that God allowed Father Murphy to play such a big part in my life. I feel comfort in knowing that now, another door will open for Father Murphy, and he will help someone else find God who needs it as much as I did four years ago.

Our Lady of Knock, pray for us.

Our Lady of Peace, pray for us.

Me, Father Murphy, my sister Sarah, and Momma Mary. 🙂

BookCon 2014

Just a snapchat of Jason Segel. #casual

On June 1st, my best friend Katie and I were fortunate enough to attend BookCon 2014 in New York City! I thought I’d share some of the best pictures and highlights of the day.

 

Jason Segel from “How I Met Your Mother”, “The Muppets” and much more talking about his new children’s book, “Nightmares”.

Cary Elwes signing.

Watching clips of “The Princess Bride”. Doesn’t he look like a proud father?

Selfies

So exciting!!!
