Lookbook // Celebration

Dress (similar and similar)  // Flower Crown // Lip

Another year gone by in a flash.  I turned 26 years old three days ago and with it a flooding of realizations and thoughts.  As always, I'm reminded by how loved I am by an outpouring of affection from friends and family, both near and far.  How I got so lucky, I'll never know.  It's the best part of birthdays--to be hugged and appreciated just for being me.  And I think that I am just striving to be more me than I have ever been before.  To create a life that feels good on the inside matters more than one that just looks good on the outside.  In fact, some might argue that my life doesn't look so good on the outside and yet, I'm happier now than before.  I love birthdays, as I always gain some perspective on the direction of life, both good and bad.  I am not the same individual I was a year ago, a month ago, etc.  I am always growing.  Experiences don't stop--that's life.
