These photos are from a night one month ago, two days before I graduated college. That moment, and the goodbyes that followed, feels like forever ago. And now I find myself in the same situation again, but this time, it's me who's packing their bags. It's surreal to say goodbye to this place and the people who have made my time here all worth it. This is the home where I have experienced love, joy, laughter, hurt, hard times, and sadness. It is here, that I have grown into the person that I am today. Goodbyes are never easy, and this one is particularly hard. And although nothing that lies ahead will ever compare to my years here, I know that it has the potential to be just as wonderful and beautiful. I'll miss you, Birmingham.
