Snippets of Christmas

Merry Christmas, beautiful people!
Yesterday we celebrated the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ. It's the day that we rejoice in the salvation we have in Him. It's the day we reflect on His mercies, grace, and the amazing lives that we have in Christ. It's the day that, no matter what the year has brought us, we are reminded of Christ and His peace that passes understanding. I hope that your Christmas was filled with so much love and peace.  You are SO loved!

Much love, Vivi

Five Things to Love

1. Lunch with a sweet friend at the sweetest cafe. London fog latte for her and vanilla rooibos tea for me.  
2. One of my favorite ways to paint water colors is onto cards. Giving a hand painted card to a friend is such a joy! 
3. Chalkboard art in my room as a reminder of the true reason for the season
4. A snippet of our Christmas villages: the pet shop with the lighthouse in the background
5. Oana Befort's beautiful December calendar. I've been faithfully using each month's calendar as a desktop background for a year now! Go check it out- you'll be so happy you did. 
Much love, Vivi

Why, hello!

HI! Wow, it's been a while. This semester has been one of the fullest, most enriching times of my life. I have learnt so much that, at times, my brain felt as if it were going to explode. Thankfully, it didn't. In fact, my brain is at last taking a deep breath now that my last exam is in the past. I wanted to share a few tiny glimpses of the past few weeks. Here's what I have been up to.. 
Two scenes of my University campus: the left was taken from the library and the right was taken one very early morning while, um, walking to the library.. (Haha, I might spend a lot of my time in there).

It wouldn't be a complete update without showing you what I've been eating, now would it? ;) Smoothies and black bean brownies. Brain food, people.
Not pictured: copious amounts of notes, textbooks, and practice questions. Ahh, university. 

 Stay tuned for the beginnings of winter posts... :) 

Much love, Vivi
