Our twenties are for adventurousness. This is our time to push the boundaries, to question everything and know that we know nothing. These are our explorative years, the times we should be using to create memories that we’ll reflect on 80+ years from now, creasing our smile lines even deeper. Over the past few months, […]

The first blog post I ever wrote was for CameraAndCarryOn. Though it revolved mainly around my adventures cliff diving in the Amalfi Coast, that wasn’t really the point… The point was that sometimes you have to stop thinking, and just jump. I’ve given that advice to so many people, and have always tried to embrace […]

Seventeen. Seventeen was the age I was my senior year in high school. Seventeen is the amount of times I would write Mrs. Courtney LastNameOfCrush in my notebook.

If our friend or partner says or does something we don’t appreciate, we let them know, and if someone is trailing […]
