Hey newbie! Welcome! I’m Gabby, more formerly known as Gabriella, I’m 17 years old, and this is my gallery! On this site you will find things that make me happy. I enjoy writing, reading, photography, and spreading positive energy everywhere I go.
2016-2017 was the most trying and difficult time of my life. In May of 2016, I was diagnosed with a very rare type of sarcoma. The tumor was in my jaw, which limited my ability to do everyday things. I went through 15 cycles of chemo, 33 radiation treatments, and a 14 hour surgery over the course of a year. It was a long year, let me tell you, but now I am happy to say that I am through it and cancer free!
This year I also discovered a wonderful thing called bookstagram. With doing school online and not being able to leave the house much, I decided I needed a pastime. I had always followed book blogs on instagram, and I always wanted to try it, but I never joined the community because I knew I would never have time to post regularly. It combines my two favorite things: books and photography! With my newfound free time, I created an account (@lotsofliterature) and began to post. I found I was able to express myself through my photography, even if it was only pictures of books on the bench in my basement. I received my first real DSLR camera on my 16th birthday in February of 2017, and it is my favorite gift I have ever gotten. I use this to take all of my pictures now, and I absolutely love it.
A few more things I love/love to do/hobbies include: baking (well, food in general), traveling, one direction (harry styles is the love of my life), music in general, reading anything and everything I can get my hands on, finding cool recipes and outfits on pinterest, planning my future June or October wedding, watching netflix, acting cooler than I really am, stalking Nina Dobrev on instagram, procrastinating, mindlessly roaming on the internet until the early hours of the morning, sleeping later than normal, writing in my journal, and thinking about how beautiful Harry Styles is (did I mention him already?).
Photography and writing are two of my passions. I don’t know yet if I would want to pursue either of them as careers in the future, but I still have time to figure it out which is good. I hope you find my blog comforting, intriguing, and most of all, fun!
Feel free to contact me if you are interested or if you have any questions. Also, be sure to follow me on all of my social medias!
lots of love,
