Searching for Home.

Hey guys!

I've really been enjoying taking photos outside amongst all the fall foliage in Ohio lately. With being a senior and in my last year of college, I don't know if I'll even be in Ohio next year for the fall. It's a really scary thought, but one that excites me more than scares me. Ohio has been the state I call home and although I know that it will always be there, it's strange to me to think of having a "new" home. 

The past four years have been really confusing for me because I've not felt like I really belong to any place. I've been bopping around from my home town, to Kent, to Italy, to Europe, to New York. To be honest, I'm not a big travel person and it's left me feeling quite uncertain about where home is for me at this point in my life. When I go back to my hometown, although my family still lives there it's strange because I feel more like a visitor than a member. My kiddish childhood bedroom feels like an odd, nostalgic hotel room with dust collecting over all my items and at every corner I see some new development that wasn't there the last time I visited. Even in Kent, although this is where I technically reside most of my time, it doesn't quite feel like home either. I know it's so semi permanent because it's not a 'forever home,' so I try not to get too attached.

I'm not sure where I'll end up after I graduate in seven months. I'm obviously shooting so hard for New York, but you never know what could happen. I just hope wherever I am that I can stay there for a little while and make it a place that feels like home to me finally. x

With much love, Lauren.

No matter where you end up after graduation, doesn't mean that New York is not in your future. We all have to start somewhere. Don't give up a dream, just know sometimes we have to take steps to achieve our dreams. Who knows, maybe where you end up will be even better than New York. Love the outfit. Fall is so lovely.
