missmmccarthy "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
To-morrow will be dying.
The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
The higher he's a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he's to setting.
That age is best which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times still succeed the former.
Then be not coy, but use your time,
And, while ye may, go marry:
For having lost but once your prime,
You may forever tarry." - John William Waterhouse

missmmccarthy This is my first official week as a freelancer after spending the past year with the incredible community at @holstee. I'm both ecstatic and petrified for the next chapter but most of all, I'm grateful I got to call these amazing people my friends. This photo is from our final night as a team. We drank too much rum, cranked up the fog machine and sang karaoke until we dropped. #tbt to the memories and magic made over there in Gowanus. "Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them." amen.

missmmccarthy Empty chairs at empty tables. A rare moment of quiet in between the walls for an early morning departure. Thank you for following along on the journey... New adventures await back in Brooklyn!

missmmccarthy Back in Dubrovnik for a final night in town before heading homewards. Nighttime is the right time for a solitary stroll around here.

missmmccarthy Somehow I missed the memo about the fortress in Kotor being straight up a mountain. Flip-flops + sundress = unprepared. Whoops. Do what you gotta do. #climbeverymtn #aintnomtnhighenough
