Hailing from New Orleans, celebrating life is in my bones. Whether that’s trailing behind a brass band in a body suit of sequins, or high fiving for a win at Mario Kart, I believe the small victories and quiet moments are what shape us. For me, that’s eating lunch with my dad. Watching Japanese reality TV shows with my boyfriend. Those, “ok, just one more,” nights until you end up dancing ’til the sun comes up. Life is unpredictable. And mundane. And exciting. And so many things all at once. I believe we should feel all of our days and remember not to take ourselves too seriously. Because while the big moments are important, turns out the really small ones are, too.
