A sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.
Nostalgia. It's my favorite word. I think it's so beautiful. The sound of it, the way it rolls off your tongue, the feelings it brings. I think nostalgia is such a special word because it means the same thing and a different thing to every single person. When I think of nostalgia I think of walking for miles down back roads with a friend at sunset and ending in the night. I think of daring to visit the quarry at dark. I think of wandering through German forests and laying in a small top bunk bed longing for home. I think of a lot of different things but the word nostalgia mainly brings me back to my first home. A small white cottage with red shutters, and the little wooden playhouse to match that my dad made with his own two hands. We'd sit in the miniature kitchen and make the best food in the word. It was our base for tag, or shelter from snow, our home away from home. I remember hours laying in the grass pretending we were creatures, or roaming with the chickens, or climbing the big pine tree fort. It brings me back to the open bed of my dads truck when he would fly us down the lane, wind in our hair. Or the cat tails that hid away the boulders we would play on and wonder if anyone was home through those mysterious windows down the back road. The memories always bring me back to that place. Nostalgia-- it's the one thing we all cling to so dearly as not to forget.

Hi guys! It's me, the girl behind the camera. I decided to make time for myself during the week-- to step away from client work, and do what makes my heart sing: art. Wether that be painting or crafting or shooting for myself, I'll be creating weekly because I haven't been and it's so important. It's my goal to create a new self portrait every other week along with a journal entry. I want to be able to share my random thoughts and ideas and creativity that is dancing around in my brain with you guys and I want to hear from you too! Enjoy this moody autumn evening friends✨
