growing older

august is coming to a swift end and september is creeping its way here. in just a few short weeks i will be turning twenty-five. i remember being younger and thinking that 25 would be this magical golden year of life. but now that it is approaching, (in all honesty) i am actually dreading it. because still inside of me is that teenage girl daydreaming of what 25 would look like and its nowhere near what i imagined.

i know this is rather depressing. but in the midst of this is a lesson that i have learnt.
life is never what you expect it to be. if i were to choose i would be living in a big ole house with a husband and a golden doodle pup. but i am living on my own in a wonderful apartment, shooting weddings every weekend and traveling. God's plans are always greater than ours. even though the past 25 years has been a roller coaster of ups & downs, adventures, amazing food & new places + faces. i am excited to see what God has in store for the next 25 years. who knows, maybe somewhere in the next 25 years i'll find me a husband and a cute puppy.

  1. Beautiful photos.
    I'll be 26 in a few weeks. I really can't believe it either.
    Happy (early) Birthday!
