"Be the change..." // hello 2015!


Hi, hello! It's my first post for 2015 which is both very humbling (I've been at this blogging thing for nearly half a decade...), and very exciting! Today my sister and I decided to spice up our regular bike ride with a backpack filled with makeup, clothes, my camera and some picnic refreshment to take photos at an "out of the ordinary" location. It was a lot of fun and we both came home feeling pretty great about our independent expedition!

What's in stall for everyone this year? To me, 2015 is terrifying and exciting all wrapped up into one. It's all about "change". For me, my environment and life. I'm planning on moving out of home in a few weeks to study at a university in the city and it's going to be quite the change from my sheltered life under a suburbia roof. I'm going to miss my friends, aspects of this town that I live in and my family, but I think it's time for independence and change. I'll keep you posted, Avenue Maria may not be updated as regularly but I've decided to keep this blog running until I'm 100, then I can do a post posing with my letter from the Queen in the snazziest nursing home ever.
Talk soon xo

I am right there with you, although I'm American so I don't graduate until May, and I don't leave home for University until August!

But in terms of change, I am so ready for it! I can't wait to follow all your adventures of independence!

Lovely photos :) You have such wonderful hair! I started uni last year, it is such a scary experience, but as scary as it is at first, you will wake up one day and realise that it isn't scary anymore. Its such a good change and I hope you enjoy it :)

It's quite scary to go off and be independent, but you'll fall right into it, and before you know it, you'll be too comfortable to imagine anything else! All the best :)
Love the skirt, by the way!

Love these photos + location Maria! You look stunning. I know you must be so nervous about moving, but you have no idea what good will come out of it! Best of luck my Australian pal. <3

You are so cute! Love your outfit--and that background is super cool!

2015 is a bit of a scary year for me too...I'm not really sure about what will happen, but I will be graduating from college and getting out into the real world...getting a job, getting a driver's license...I'm excited and nervous, haha.

Best wishes for you as you start your college life!
