This was a project I completed over the course of 2016. I took a few seconds of video every day for a year, and this is the final product.

“The Truth is a Cave” by The Oh Hellos
“TESTIFY” by NEEDTOBREATHE

Here’s to a year of dance parties, an excess of coffee cups (and good friends who kept filling them), trips to ATL, Chattanooga, Spartanburg, NYC, Pine Mountain, Columbus, Knoxville, little towns in Alabama, Ellijay, Asheville, Little River Canyon, and St. George Island, 7 weddings (SEVEN), study sessions, Bible studies with some sweet souls, 5 concerts, a bunch of Imprinted Blog meetings, an internship w/ LifeCast, surprises, babies, sacred moments, heartbreak, courageous happenings, cutting my bangs, sneaking onto a beautiful field to film, sunsets, one graduation, plotting to stay in NYC, big hugs, Thai food, House Church, new friends, reconciling, another summer at Berry, the wildest family who loves so fiercely, a YouTube series (with Mount Berry Church + more coffee cups), worship nights, car karaoke, wrestling with God, a family reunion, learning how to fall in love with life again, writing (going through way too many journals), mistakes and more mistakes, cooking dinners, beautiful voices, learning how to love a cat, 2 beautiful roomies, “froomie” dates, a half marathon, falling more in love with videography, listening to “Unwritten” and reclining in sketchy parking lots, tornado potatoes, some of the best conversations I’ve ever had and some of the worst, another Mountain Day, a Miada and cappuccinos after 10:30, Media Law, too many hours at Swift to count, apple-house hopping, a Petro’s pizza road trip, a spankin’ new MacBook Pro, another year of birthdays (and one surprise party for a big baby), the best coworkers & bosses a girl could ever ask for, a semester of 18 hours, creating boundaries (and breaking some), inside jokes, concert planning, 2 finals weeks, too many books to count, scoring the ultimate summer dream job with WinShape Camps, a lot of church services and late nights, and more people who know me more deeply than ever before.
And I get to the end of this year lost in the beauty of all that God has done, and that’s when I remember He is good. He will always be good. And my lips long to praise Him. Here’s to 2017 adventures.
