    Thank you for liking my first blog post on the second blog I’m starting. 🙂 From what I’ve seen so far, I love yours! I love how blogging connects us around the world, and how Christianity does the same. I didn’t even realize you were Australian until I read your about me. Anyways, can’t wait to read more. Have a great day! 🙂

      Thank you! Your new blog looks amazing. Blogging is the best at connecting people, and I’m loving it! I love getting to ‘meet’ other Christians as well, I’ve been really encouraged by a number of people this week! Hope you’re having a great day too 🙂 Thanks for leaving a comment! x

  10. Even though I’m not a Christian (or religious at all, for that matter) I think your blog is really lovely! You’re very articulate and I must say, I really enjoyed your post about Peter Pan and growing up in particular- very relatable 😉 I’m only new to blogging but it’s really encouraging to see someone who is both the same age as I am and in the same stage in their life writing here! 🙂 x

    1. Lauren says:

      Thank you so much for your encouragement! You have a great blog as well, I’m reading some of your posts at the moment. I agree, its so nice finding other bloggers in similar life stages (they’re mostly the ones I follow!). All the best with your blog, and thanks again for your comment! x

I haven’t actually been to Adelaide, but it’s on my to-go-to list. I visited Melbourne for the first time a month or so ago, and it was amazing there.
