It’s my 4th year participating in this gift exchange and I look forward to it all year long 😍 I’ve made the loveliest friends from all over the world -people that I never would have met if it weren’t for this wonderful exchange ♥️ This bundle is headed from North Carolina, USA alllll the way to Australia 🇦🇺
The last year felt like a crash course in grieving and acceptance of loss, so it felt good to take some time out to be with family and reflect on everything that’s happened.
These images were taken at Hollingworth Lake using an iPhone 7 back camera.
A while ago I promised myself to never grow up. Not in my body, but in my soul.
I don’t want to stop dreaming because “it’s a waste of time”
I don’t want to lose my curiosity because “it doesn’t matter”
I don’t want to stop chasing my dreams because “we don’t live in a fairytale”
and I certainly don’t want to lose faith in humanity because “i’ve seen too many terrible things”. I’m 19 years old today but I still believe in happy endings, I still believe in love and I still believe in beauty!
I’m 19 years old and I’m happy to be alive because life is the most beautiful adventure 🙏🏼🌻
