There were last minute dinner dates
and escapes to my home town,
while it was still so close.
The tail end of work days,
where I stood still to remember
what it felt like to belong there.
Held a sparkler in my hands and
perched on a swing,
while we poured our hearts out on the sand.
Gathered all the memories
that made it Home
and buried them in my packing boxes.
If I wasn't scared of never changing, never growing, never being all that my heart desires, I would have stayed. But while I loved where I was, I love the thought of where I will be even more.

I love this photo (blurriness and all) because I know I'm going to look back someday and think, "Oh yes, this was the end of summer after college, right on the brink of change, when I didn't really know what was going to happen, but I knew it was going to be good."
Found this quote on pinterest and I think it's perfect for where I'm at:
I've tried my best, but if today I lose my hope, please remind me your plans are better than my dreams.
Amen, pinterest, amen.
