when I grow up..

when I grow up, I want to document my life in b&w photographs.

when I grow up, I want my shoes to have their own room.
when I grow up, I want to have a young spirit, with an uninhibited mind.
when I grow up, I want to be just as wise, loving, and supportive as all of you out there, who make my day brighter whenever I'm feeling down.

what do you want to do when you grow up?

you all are amazing.


  1. where did you get those shoes?! I <3 them!

  2. you are so very beautiful my dear. When I grow up I hope I'm half as mature and brilliant as you :)

  3. Emily!
    When I grow up, I want to have changed your mood! Turn that frown upside-down, girlie!
    Also, I want to enjoy my life, whatever path it takes.
    I want to have a patasserie in France! And travel around Europe and South America as much as time allows. I want to marry the man of my dreams (awww! Cliche)and live an active lifestyle with fun (!!!) activities (want to bungie jump with me?!?).
    More than anything, though, I want to be healthy.
    Smile Em!

  4. lovely black&white photos. the camera just <3s you !!

    i also want to always have a young spirit - a life full of whimsy + love. always.



  5. when i grow up, i want to be successful (whatever that means) and happy!

  6. I love your thoughts Emily... but don't ask me what I want when I grow up because I have already grown up. And I am happy to say that I got my wishes when I was the same age as you. Life is good. xoxo

  7. Great post!
    I wanna live my life the way I like it, with the people I love and with health and joy:)

  8. What do I want to be when I grow up? Forever young! Yes, I am plagued with Peter Pan Syndrome!! :)

  9. When I grow up I want to be happy and free. <3

    Pretty pictures, Emily!

  10. Great photos! Is that your room? It is super adorable. I want to be healthy, and have cute children when I grow up :)

  11. Love this post.
    When I grow up, I want to live in a yellow house with red shutters and a white picket fence with mismatched furniture.

  12. If I kept saying "when I'll grow up" I'll never accomplish things. It's almost like saying: I wanna do *this* but not right now.

    So I am grown up. I wanna be a graphic designer and illustrator. And I'm close to being one officially.

    What I DO wanna do one day, when the time is right, is be a mother! But of course, thats when I'll actually be grown up :)

    You're looking beautiful as always. Keep smiling!

  13. this is so beautiful. Im not sure exactly what I want ot be but I know i want to be happy
