So, here it is! The surprise! Molly is my best friend, and when she expressed interest in writing for A Lovely Intention I was so excited!! She will be here twice a month sharing various musings as well as thoughts about her first year of college. I know you all will love her as much as I do. Now, I’ll let her take it away…
Hi there. I’m Molly. Sydney and I are so glad you are here.
I met Sydney through my high school bible study and we instantly bonded over our mutual love of fine food, expensive clothes, and adventures in the city. For two years, we were inseparable, attached at the hip, riding life out together. When Sydney moved to New Mexico, we each bought a roll of stamps and vowed to not let the miles keep us apart. ‘Best friends’ doesn’t seem to adequately the relationship that Sydney and I share. Soul sister, maybe.
I grew up in a small, sleepy town in Southwestern, Pennsylvania, on a quant, tree-lined street in a fixer-upper of a house that my parents poured their heart and soul into. The walls bleed love. I am the oldest of four children, a size 9.5, and a Gilmore Girls fanatic. I love C.S. Lewis, pineapple, and reading the Sunday edition of the New York Times. I could eat breakfast food all day long. I am passionate about non-profits, building personal relationships, and Jesus. I am studying English at Grove City College, a small, Christian liberal arts college in the middle-of-nowhere Pennsylvania.

You guys, go follow her on Instagram and get excited for her posts!!!! She has such a sweet spirit and such a way with words. She is so smart and so insightful, and I know her contributions here will be great! She is spot on in her description of our relationship. Good food, clothes we want but can’t afford, and getting lost among the city skyscrapers defined and solidified our friendship before college swept us across the country, and I couldn’t be more grateful for this woman and her presence in my life!
