October ’14 in Review

I can’t believe October is over already! So much has happened this month, including multiple trips outside of the “St. Louis Bubble.” It all started with a 3-day conference (retreat) out in nature with my fellowship (click on photos to read each post):

It’s going to be a crazy busy November in school. But I’ll just have to grin and bear it until my much-needed Thanksgiving Break, where I get to go home. SO EXCITED. In the meantime…Happy Halloween!
