10 Years Later

July 12, 2022

Happy tenth birthday, Je M'appelle Chanel. I would've never imagined so many years ago that the blog would still be here and still hold such a special and dear place in my heart.
10 years ago I shared a similar, but much moodier picture of myself along with a handful of words known as a blog post on a website called Blogger. Back when I first started the blog I did so many photoshoots in fields and it feels like life has kind of come full circle with this picture. In a different field. In a similar dress. Arms outreached.
l lost someone this past year. So, as you can imagine, my heart hasn’t been fully in this anniversary, but this is still big, he wouldn’t want me to let this milestone pass. I'm still trying to figure out how I honor this small piece of the world I created for myself in a very turbulent time of my life, but this is a start. Happy tenth birthday, JMC.
I think this picture describes the mood I aspire to be at, at all times.
 Tonight is a full moon, and this moon is the Buck Moon which is devoted to the growth cycle of male deer's antlers. Bucks shed and regrow their antlers, producing a stronger, more impressive set. Here's to the shedding and growing better and stronger antlers. 

Thanks for being here. I couldn't do it without you.
