Ahhh… the most perfect beach in the world… Concha Beach in San Sebastian, Spain. After conquering my fear of traveling in Peru, I took a weekend here with my best friend while we were both studying in the south of France. I had just broken up with my partner of seven years, and it felt wonderful to be alive again in such a beautiful place.

I had been wanting to go to Washington DC since I was a kid but no one in my family would ever take me. So finally this past summer I took a half-day at work and left and drove 6 hours, by myself, to Washington DC. I spent the evening exploring, going on trolley rides and just seeing the city. I drove back that night and got back at 6 in the morning and went to work.It was the best experience of my life and this is the only picture I got of me from it.
Yes. That is a cheetah. Why yes! That IS me stroking the cheetah. I KNOW. DIE OF LOVE. win. (editor’s note: Gawd! Stop living my dream life!)
I was invited by my hair stylist to participate in the Fresche Fall Fashion show in 2008 (Decatur, GA).

This is me, shortly after I decided to, on a whim, move across the country to try out a relationship with a guy I barely knew. And we’re still together. This decision has yielded much win. 😀 So what are you waiting for?! Join the fun! If you can’t be bothered to upload photos or join flickr, just paste a link into the comments and tell us why that photo is a Moment of Win for you.
