new in town

my name is candace and i like the color blue. i'm crazy about keds and cappuccino ice-cream and san pellegrino. i once ate this thing called nutella and it was instant love (sorry jocee). yes, my life revolves mostly around food. i have this obsession with thrift store sweaters and sock hats. i've always wanted a pet chameleon. or three. and i wear cardigans because of mr. rogers. i have this fear of heights and i love using disposable cameras. i watch america's funniest home videos when i'm bored and i listen to p!nk on the weekends. this is me. this is your new neighbor. i love this new house and i love the girls i'm going to boldly call my sisters. but you see, i'm not perfect or even remotely original. i make mistakes and i mess up big time sometimes. but my purpose in life is to not be perfect or beautiful or famous or funny. my mission is to be who i am. to not give a care to how the world sees me. because in the end, it won't matter how i looked throughout the years. what will be remembered are the things that i did with my life. so that's what my goal is as a new neighbor. to make an impact simply by being me.

xo,

  3. Yaaaaay! I love you! This is great, Candace. The angle of your photo, first off, is great, it's different, but you could've gotten run over by a car, so be careful next time. And cappuccino ice cream? Please I want some. Also, I wish you were my real-life neighbor.

  4. i forgive you for instantly loving nutella because you informed me that cappuccino ice cream exists and because of that i'm running around the house scream-singing "it's alive" by a fine frenzy and i really do adore the angle of your photo because it's so darn creative and as a wide range but like abby said be careful because we don't want you to die from flatness. that was me defying all the rules of punctuation.
    basically you're awesomesauce and i'm SOOOO glad you be on the team. so. yeah.
