After years of underaged drinking and yearningly looking at bars after ending my shifts, I’m finally 21. I turned 21 yesterday, but was frankly too preoccupied with birthday shenanigans to make a blog post. This past stage of my life has been extremely challenging, and I feel especially grateful for the people in my life that have helped me begin this new chapter and done so much to make this birthday special. I’m so hashtag blessed.
My beautiful friend with a heart of gold and an ass that could feed a small village took these photos for me, and the fact that she could make my awkward faces and even more awkward poses look so good is truly indicative of her talent. Check out more of her work here.
In case you’re wondering, my dress is thrifted from Buffalo Exchange, my shoes are from Aldo, my necklace is from 344, my tiara is from a random kiosk in the Prudentual and my flag is from the Greatest Country On Earth.
