There are a few ways in which I will probably be forever altered by my time of living on an island during this fundamental and important stage in my young-adult life. And one of those core changes to my being will likely be my newfound ability to “just go with it” and observe island time: […]
I love flowers. And I really love tall, golden-crowned flowers. And though I don’t love getting stung by bees or (justifiably) smirky glances from passerby, I will always brave the possibility of both in order to take photos in a field of giant sunflowers.
