When trying to put something together for this month's theme, I realized I hadn't really ever thought about what defines me. I think that's actually a great question we should all ask ourselves. I found that not only do my family and my friends define me, but my environment does as well. The people in my life and the experiences I've been able to have make me who I am. Ultimately, I define me. In this life, we get to decide who we want to be and I hope in the end that it's happy.

  1. always love your photos, so cozy feeling

  2. Absolutely love this. Such a homegrown photo set, semi-nostalgic. Your work always brings about such authentic and platonic feelings of love.
