Last week was pretty difficult for me and some of my fellow JMU students. Countless hours studying, writing papers, and working on group projects. Very little sleep. Large quantities of caffeine. It was rough.
At some point during that time, I had the chance to get away from it all and go on a little photo adventure with my friend Alexa.
I've known and walked beside Alexa for 3 years now. I have always cherished the times we have spent together immensely.
I can now say that Alexa is one of the most fearless people I know.
1. She is the first person to climb up the tall tree or scale the unsturdy fence. I cannot count the times that she has said I could get to the top of that and I can totally make it over.
2. She is not afraid to talk about the tough parts of life. Last year she suggested that we study all of the major world religions just so we could better understand our neighbors around us. She is constantly asking apologetic questions and doesn't take the first answer she hears without researching it herself.
3. She has a fearless faith. She knows who her God is and his purpose for her life and she constantly seeks to serve him through her relationships and leadership goals.
I was so grateful for this opportunity to catch up and escape the hectic JMU campus. Here are some of my favorite photos I took of our little adventure!
(Also we found these super sweet cows and couldn't pass up the chance to grab a few shots of them as well)
