move in month + how i'm feeling

It's back to school season again, but this time it's a little harder for me. This year instead of going back to school with all of my friends we're all moving away and starting new chapters of our lives. It's been a bittersweet few weeks as I've made the best memories with friends and then said goodbye to all of them. 

My move-in date is the last one of my friend group which means that I have about two weeks where it's just me. It's going to feel weird not being able to call/text my friends last minute to meet up for lunch and ice cream. We've had the same friend group all of high school and have grown the most together. We've watched countless movies, been on road trips, celebrated holidays and birthdays, hiked mountains, hung our enos by the river, and so much more together. I'm so grateful for all of the memories, but I'm also realizing that we all won't be together anymore and it really makes me sad. It's also been raining almost every day in Georgia recently which is the perfect description of how I'm feeling about everyone leaving. I said goodbye to half of my friends this past weekend and now after this upcoming weekend everyone will be gone. It's pretty sad honestly. Our little family will be all across the country! But we tell each other "its not a goodbye, it's a see you later" and that's the mindset I'm going to have during this season in my life.

I'm really not sure what this next year holds for me, but I'm just trusting in the Lord to guide my every step. I'm looking forward to growing as a person during this next school year and making some of the best friends ever!! My roommate and I were also just assigned our room and we are more than pumped about it! We were blessed with the cutest corner room which means 2 windows and alllll the pretty sunlight! I've pretty much finished buying all of my essentials for the dorm and I just can't wait to decorate everything and make our room a  H O M E. (I'm thinking of making a whole blog post dedicated to a dorm tour, so if you would be interested in seeing that then let me know!) Get ready for a Pinterest room !!

This post is very short but with my crazy busy schedule this is all the time I had for an update. If you have any ideas of what you'd like to see me write about thenplease let me know! You can shoot me an email ( or a cute little DM on instagram (@reagan_whatley), whichever makes ya feel fancy. I love all of you reading this & you're the best out there :)
