finally. honestly that's how i feel right now. sixteen was a really hard year for me, and i'm really ready for something different. i'm not saying that seventeen will be any different, but it has a lot of possibilities. 
today was great. i spent the morning at school, went shopping with a friend (found an adorable dress, two scarves, a canvas of Audrey (extra yay!), and some hair bows.), then went home, took some portraits, dinner, visit from my grandparents, took a few more photos with my brother as the photographer (you know, put the settings all correct, then hand it to them. they always love helping!), because the lighting was just so perfect. i then showered and edited these photos. writing this post up, then getting my stuff ready for tomorrow. it's been great.
but today was also one of those days where it's cool in the morning and early afternoon. perfect weather, i'd say. it then got a bit hot, but cooled down perfectly for the evening. one of those days where you just want to relax outside. it's too cool to swim, but warm enough to dip your hand in. perfect for scarves and a summery outfit. perfect for my birthday.
if today was a peek into the opportunities and possibilities of this coming year, i'm all for it.
