I'm looking at these pictures and thinking "man, I really do need a haircut!", and "I'm loving my tan... I hope it doesn't fade away too fast", also "wow, my style really has changed".
That last thought prompted me to look back at my older posts and just reflect. Hitting my mid 20s has made me think a lot about my past, my present, and my future. The way I used to be and the way I am now. I've always found dressing up as an artistic outlet to my emotions, thoughts, and way of perceiving life. So, I believe that the way I feel inside is directly correlated to the way I dress.
I could go on and write a whole essay about how I feel my life has changed and how I am starting to set up new kinds of goals in my life. I just think time is of essence and we don't have much to waste. How cliché is that? As cliché as it may sound, it probably is the biggest truth we have.
Now, this doesn't mean I threw away all the clothes I've bought these past five years. It just means I wear them, but in a different way. I still like to feel fun, sexy, and feminine. But, above all, I want to feel me, or at least, the present me. It's something that I like to think of as me growing as a person.

If you've followed me for a while, you know how much I love a good background. This isn't the first time I take pictures in front of a historic house. Last year, I did a Cinco de Mayo post in front of this beautiful, historic (teal blue?) house.
This time, I took pictures in front of a house I always walk by, and that has intrigued me for years. It's the James Blake House, the oldest house in Boston, built in 1661. If you're from Boston and want to read more about it, click here.
I never felt the courage to walk into it by myself, but Cynthia and I were feeling a little adventurous that day. Plus, did you see all those beautiful flowers? How could you stop yourself from going in?
I hope you enjoyed!
