These photos were taken by me at the Cypress Swamp in Gateway, NC. My wonderful best friend surprised me with this trip as a graduation present.
It was just like a dream.
I did it. I finally slid through that finish line tape (ok, more like stumbled through after face planting a few times) they call graduation. After seven long years I can finally come home from work and actually take some time to unwind. I can finally hang out with people again without saying goodbye when we just arrived at our destination.
This feels like freedom.
I understand that life won’t exactly be less busy, but I am excited that it will finally be busy with things I really want to do instead of things I am just obligated to do.
I am excited about all the possibilities.
