Highlighters + notes + 35mm lens. Last day of uni.
Most of the time I feel as though life just has a winding little path for me to follow and keep me guessing what’s around each corner.
One of the most memorable points along this path was meeting this amazing person one year ago.
James & I met at a sunrise on the Northern Beaches (the stuff movies are made of!). The morning was a beautiful disaster – glasses were lost, injuries occurred, and we got dumped by a massive wave with our camera gear in hand. Despite all this, I witnessed one of the best sunrises I’ve ever seen. And got taken out to breakfast by one very cute sopping wet shirtless boy.
One year later we went back to the same spot to relive the day. The wind caused one very expensive lens to end up broken, and the weather was an epic contrast to last time. Once again though, the sunshine came out eventually for some shots, and we enjoyed a beautiful morning at the beach.
A lot happens in one year, and for me that includes the size of my heart having to grow a little bit each day just to accommodate the endless amount of love I receive from this person.
Happy Anniversary to of the greatest person to step (or fall) into my life.
People often say I act much older than my age. And speak much older. And look much older.
But when all I want to do is get a bunch of balloons and play at the beach on my birthday, it’s reassuring to know that I’m still only a 5 year old on the inside,
and probably always will be.
Here is another day that reminded me of the one of my favourite quotes –“It’s not what you have in your life, it’s who you have.” And who I have are some friends who never fail to put a smile on my face, and a partner who never ceases to amaze me.
