When We Were Young
"When we were young” is romantic and reckless. It’s defiant yet innocent. We wanted to explore those neverending nostalgic middle school summers and go back to a time before work, drugs or alcohol. Pure innocence, no real stress. a time before cellphones. The time when the biggest worry was getting one more laugh in before you had to go home for dinner and sneaking out of the house to get that first kiss with your crush.
