One of my best friends on island, Brittany Evans, recently did this photoshoot with Christian and me! She is so incredibly talented and it can be such a blast and also super romantic (ew I know, sorry) to do a lovey dovey photoshoot occasionally; for no reason other than to create some cool images […]
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: […]
