Abandonment

It is no secret I love Abandonded Houses (remember this?). My ultimate goal in life is to buy one, fix it up to be everything I've dreamt of, and then live there forever and ever. Siiigh, Someday.

And this is by far my favorite dress, playful and fun with a dangerously low back. Perfect for a unique bralette.

Typical me in the summer; Lace Dress (from Urban Outfitters- originally 80 but I grabbed it for 10!), Gold Rings (Forever 21), and Flowers in my Hair. In front of a wall of flowers in my room. All of the flowers were from my Birthday, with the exception of the sunflowers (from October) and the rose (from 4 years ago). They are hanging there drying for a little DIY I have coming this fall.

-Learn Sign Language Alphabet and simple words (be prepared for my ASL course next semester!)

Personal;
-Repeat my daily affirmations and mantras every morning and evening

I have always loved this country. America. Something about it. Junior year of high school I participated in girls state, a government simulation camp. I even went on to be a Junior Counselor the following year. Next to fostering some of the strongest friendships I have, I also learnt so much about our country. I gained so much respect for the flag. The red, the white, the blue, the stars and stripes, all of it. Memorial Day is about paying your respects for those who have lost their lives protecting this country in war. I took these photos the Friday after the tragic events of Marathon Monday. It has taken me so long to post these because the emotion behind each and every photo is still so so strong in me (oh and I took about 500 and narrowing them down was difficult). Moments after the last bomber was taken into custody, a weight was lifted. Lifted off of each and every citizen of Boston's shoulders. We had been living in fear for the past few days. Glued to the news, and when we heard he was captured, we all flocked to the streets. All of the surrounding colleges students in the streets. Dancing and cheering and singing the national anthem and every other patriotic song that stumbled to our tongues. Clapping and waving for the men and women in uniform, those who had protected us the whole week. There were celebrations like this, cheerful riots, makeshift parades, all over the city at this very moment. I have never felt more alive, more exhilarated than I did in these moments. Surrounded by friends, acquaintances  strangers. All of us, feeling truly FREE. My love and respect has grown, my heart has swelled even more for this country and my city, Boston, and all of the people who fight to keep us safe. Making History.
