It’s been a year since I graduated college (how???). Last year’s graduation week was *crappy* to say the least, this is why: one brother was sick & having vision issues, one brother was out of town for storm work, my mom was sick as a dog, it poured all week, got a nail in my tire, my phone broke...and like should I continue?? HAHAHAH Also - a bday shout to my fur baby. I miss him SO much 💛. ANYWAYS, I figured I’d give ten fun facts about the year after graduating college!!! So if you’re almost there or are there - this ones for you. 1. Student loans suck. If your parents took care of this for you, THANK THEM EVERY DAY. Seriously. 2. You’ll get a job. It probably won’t be what you want. But it’ll do. Don’t stress so much. 3. Enjoy your summer. If you’re starting your job search - take a vacation and give yourself some time to breathe. 4. Take some naps. You’ll miss them once you start working. 5. Being in your 20s are lonely. I haven’t talked to one person who hasn’t said they’ve felt lonely at some point. Spend time with friends and don’t be scared to reach out to them. We’re all in it together. 6. Moving home sucks but you’re saving money. 7. It’s okay to not be married. (Going to a Christian college made it seem like you were a failure if you weren’t engaged and planning your 2.5 kids by the time graduation rolled around. It’s fine. Their path isn’t yours.) 8. Dating in the world outside college isn’t as fun. Hang in there - we’re in this together 😂. 9. Working sucks. God bless the soul who gets up everyday and loves going to work. You suck. JK. But, seriously. Work isn’t meant to always be fun. It’s just work. 10. Breathe - YOU’RE DONE WITH 17 years of school. Go get a strong drink and take yourself to the beach. It’s deserved.
Don’t you feel like when you go somewhere or you start to be interested in something, you start to see it everywhere?! For me, it was after the @embark_photography_retreat I started to hear about cruising ALL THE TIME. I never realized before how many people went! While it was a really cool experience, the 3 weeks of vertigo I had after I got off the ship wasn’t 100% worth it. The only time I felt normal was in the car, I spent everyday feeling like I was half drunk, and if I moved from sitting up to laying down too fast..well it was 🤢. Anyone else experience this craziness too?!? Let’s all take moment to look at the grand cayman water tho 😍. . . . . . . . . . . #grandcayman #ritzcarltongrandcayman #grandcaymanwedding #grandcaymansisland #carnivalcruise #carnivalcruisewedding #destinationwedding#destinationweddingphotographer #lindseymarklephotography #mdbrides #westminstermd #westminsterweddingphotographer #mdweddingphotographer #communityovercompetition #risingtidesociety #mdweddings #mdweddingphotographer #weddingphotographer #maryland #marylandweddingphotos #marylandphotographer
At the very end of last years Nags Head trip, I had everyone head to the beach for some photos before we left. It was SO incredibly windy, but so worth it! Scroll for some real life shots 😂😂
How does one control themselves from buying all the pretty dresses and summer clothes?! I’d like to say I’m asking for a friend...but honestly I have no self control when it comes to clothes 😂. These bridesmaids dresses are my favorite. I love this color blue and I’m so glad it came back again for this years wedding season!! . . . . . #antrim1844 #antrim1844wedding #taneytownmdwedding #antrim1844weddings #lindseymarklephotography #mdbrides #westminstermd #westminsterweddingphotographer #mdweddingphotographer #communityovercompetition #mdweddings #mdweddingphotographer #theknot #weddingphotographer #marylandweddingphotos #marylandphotographer #mdseniors #mdseniorportraits #stylemepretty #paweddingphotographer
