I've always been a bit of a hoarder... Okay, that's a lie. I've always been an extreme hoarder. For some strange reason, I feel such strong emotional attachment to my materialistic belongings. Even when I find absolutely no use for things anymore, I just have the tendency to keep it folded and tucked away in some corner. For that reason, I still have clothes and things from when I was in middle school, high school and my early years of college. In a few short months I'll be starting a new chapter in my life and so I figured it's the right time to find a new home for my no longer used possessions....
I spent a few hours just digging through my old clothing and accessories and packing them away in cardboard boxes to be donated. As I pulled out each thing, I started to recall when I bought it, how often I wore it and how much I loved or hated it. Somehow it made me remember who I was at that moment. I remember in high school I was obsessed with Hollister. I remember how "cool" I felt when I wore those (ugly) t-shirts with the big Hollister logos printed across them. It made me cringe to see how many of those t-shirts my teenage self owned.
Cringe-inducing? Yes. Embarrassing? No. I think we all go through phases in our life where we want to be who we're not. I thought I was "cool" in high school, because I dressed like everyone else. But now that I'm a young adult, I appreciate who I am. I love that I can dress however I like without having to impress anyone but myself.

It feels as though I've been in hibernation for the past two months and all of a sudden it's already March 2015. I suppose that's not too terrible of a thing considering I don't particularly like winter. Having lived in Georgia my whole life, I don't think I would be able to survive a winter up north or anywhere insanely cold. Fortunately for us, Spring will be here in just a few short weeks. We took these photos several weeks back when the weather was significantly warmer.
It’s actually the first time in a while since I’ve pulled out my camera and went out to take photos. We have both been so busy with other things, that we just haven’t had the time to take photos like we use to. Come to think of it, photography has always been one of our shared hobbies. Back then when we use to see each other only once or twice a year, we would spend those days taking photos of each other.
