You know that feeling you get when you’re around someone that just makes you feel...good? It’s almost as if their energy is magnetic, and you can’t help but begin to radiate their positive vibes. T-Crad, I know you’re going to give me shit for using the word “vibes”, but I don’t really know how else to explain it…let me go ahead and try by introducing one of my best friends.

Courtney and I lived together fall of our junior year at IU. I consider myself an extroverted introvert, so becoming friends with Court, who is definitely an extroverted extrovert, was something I think I needed. She’s spontaneous and always willing to have fun but never forgets to be loyal and generous at the same time. She’s someone who’s just hard to get sick of because of how happy she makes you feel.

During our time living together, Court started a fashion blog called Mimosas And Manhattan. I offered to take photos for her first postfast forward two years, and we’ve shot nearly 40 blog posts together.

In less than a month, Court moves to New York to begin her journey in the real worldmeaning our time together will unfortunately be less frequent from here on out. So, what better way to spend our final M&M blog post together than a 6 a.m. trip to the Chicago Cloud Gate, aka The Bean. Here are my favorites from the morning :)

Thanks for being a part of my life, Court. I can’t wait to see all the amazing things you’re going to do.
