I'm just a shy girl who has lived in a small town all her life, and is just longing to get out and explore this beautiful world.
I don't consider myself poetic but when the mood strikes me I just write and write, which is what this listography will consist of.
I love the sea and if I could, I would travel to the beach many times a year. I also love culture and learning about different countries...

Today I am enjoying my very last day of summer. Senior year begins tomorrow, and although I adore fall just as much I don't want summer to end. Therefore, here are some of the things I'm going to miss about the summer.

  • Coconut suntan lotion
  • Birds chirping
  • Cicadas growing louder with every passing day
  • Waking up to a warm breeze through my bedroom window
  • Reading underneath the willow tree out back
  • The scent of chlorine in my hair
  • Sun-kissed skin
  • Tap water drenching the flowers
  • Fresh basil
  • Sweetly humid air
  • Making my own schedule
