For some reason, I love this picture. I took it the summer after I graduated from college, in my childhood bedroom, the last summer I lived at home. I went through so much that summer, I grew so much, learned, and became myself. I love the Texas map and postcard and notebook on my desk chair. I love the hardwood floors where each stain, and nick is a memory of my childhood. I love the ikea rug. I love that my cat, Kittyanna, the only cat I’ll ever love (who died later that year) is sitting inside a converse shoe box. So much of this photo tells so much about me and that period of my life.
