today’s look..here’s to new adventures!

hello lovebugs all the way from sunny LA!
i have officially started my internship with the wonderful kait from Madly Mignon this week, and even though we are only two days in i can tell you it is going to be one heck of an amazing summer. sidenote, if you haven’t ever read kait’s blog you NEED to. this woman is unbelieveable! aside from being a fierce, #girlboss role model, she is also one of the brightest shining lights for the lord i’ve ever met. i cannot wait to spend this summer (and hopefully many years to come) in her mentorship.
now, you’re probably thinking, “wow, em! sounds like you are off to a great start!”
and yes as of monday i am, but let me tell you this was the hardest thing i’ve ever had to do. ever since i accepted this internship i’ve been nothing but excited. it wasn’t until the semester came to an end that leaving became all too real. yes i’ve been other places far from home on my “own” (new york, europe, spring break trips, etc.), but nothing like this. as i said goodbye to the people i love the most one by one, wanting to stay out here got harder and harder. i suck at goodbyes, even if it’s only for a few months. i don’t think i’ve ever cried so much in one week. lol
but then somehow after my first day going insanely well (despite my nerves), i was filled with overwhelming peace. like god was just saying “my daughter, i’ve got you. just lean on me. i’ll see you through.”
how is god working in your life this week?
i am so excited to continue this new journey, and so thankful kait has taken me under her wing! be prepared for updates as the summer continues!
PS: for someone who doesn’t wear yellow, i’ve been wearing this new madewell top quite a bit recently. maybe it’s an outward expression of the los angeles sunshine? haha

los angeles weekend trip.

as many of you may know, especially if you follow me on insta or snapchat (@emmarie96), i took a quick weekend trip to los angeles this past weekend!
my dad and i flew out from dallas bright and early friday morning on a 6am flight y’all…never again. this was such an amazing experience! not only because had i never been to LA before, but because i got to meet my future #GIRLBOSS and amazing host family.
so now to catch you up if you’re still behind…I’M INTERNING IN LA,Y’ALL!
i’ve been so blessed to have accepted an internship with fashion blog Madly Mignon and creative content company, KatiKat Creative. and even better, some amazing, loving family friends have opened their home to me for the summer! all my facebook friends would know how much my mom and i were freaking out about trying to find me a reasonable, safe place to stay, and we definitely did.
anyway, here’s a little photo diary of my weekend. LA is so photogenic, so be expecting lots of pictures throughout the summer!
 
lot’s of fun to come!
