I got to go to my happy place in Texas again last weekend! Going to the Silos will never get old. . I'm channeling my inner Joanna Gaines this weekend to work on some home projects and unpacking! How are you spending your weekend? #magnoliasilos
My favorite part of every weekend is spending time with my best friend 🐾
I've been super into plants and succulents lately, so you can bet I picked up a succulent from @magnoliaplantation in Charleston on our way to Texas. 🌱🌿 . Also PS. How cute is this sign?
Going to the @magnolia Silos used to be a bucket list item for me... Never in a million years did I think I'd be living a short 90 minutes from them for FIVE years! . We've already been twice in the several weeks that we've been in Texas, and I'm already itching to go back again! It's like Disneyland for me. I could honestly be content just sitting there reading a book and sipping sweet tea (which is exactly what I did on Thursday)! Making frequent trips there is going to be a priority for me in grad school because it's definitely my happy place in Texas so far. Words can't really capture what it's like to be there, but all I can say is everyone should try to live each day like they're at the Silos.
A girl came up to us and asked if it would be weird if she took a picture of Roscoe. Of course I said it wouldn't be weird at all, and of course Roscoe posed way better for her than he did for me. #dogmomlife
Our first stop in Charleston on the way to Texas was Magnolia Plantation and Gardens! I wasn't aware until recently, but they're actually SUPER dog friendly. When I found that out, getting to the plantation with Roscoe became a bucket list item for me, and I'm glad we were able to go! I only wish I'd known this sooner so I could have walked Roscoe there all the time when we lived in Charleston!
It's been a busy, hectic past few weeks here! I graduated, packed up our apartment, and moved 1400 miles away to Texas (with a small pit stop for Charleston, SC thrown in there!) I'm going to be sharing a ton of pictures this coming week, because there's a LOT of good that has happened since the beginning of May!
Yesterday, I received an award for my undergraduate honors thesis in psychology. This represented over a year of hard work that now continues in the form of turning my honors thesis into a publishable manuscript. . I learned a lot about psychological research in the process of my honors thesis, mostly the fact that I LOVE it. Seriously, the only passion of mine that is close to it is my love for dogs. It's exciting to think that the path to my career as a clinical psychologist who does research is only just starting, and I have MANY more studies in my future.
