Let's talk Taylor Swift


I went and watched the "Mine" Music Video. If a music video can be beautiful, it's this one. And the rest of T-Swizzy's. Love Story, You Belong with Me, Our Song, Picture to Burn and now Mine are some of my favorite music videos ever.

Oh and hey here's her new album cover. Gorgeous, no?


I have been following Lyndsie and Daniel's blog for a few weeks, and imagine my joy and surprise when I checked out their blog and saw THIS!!!

Lyndsie was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer when she was nineteen, and though now she is cancer-free (GOD IS GOOD!), she is unable to have children. This is Aubrey. She is the beautiful baby that the Brookers are adopting.

I am SO happy for them and they are in my prayers!!!

Little Fairy

Little Fairy
Fly Around
Dance Among the Stars
Do not think of who you'll be
Just love who you are
The world in which you live
Is as beautiful as could be
At least for now
While you are naive.
Stay happy to be alive,
You won't always feel that way.
Heartbreak and tears
Will soon become common.
The age of innocence will fade
Just like melting snow
The things you are sure about
Turns out you don't know.
The beauty of your soul
Will not always be seen
Enjoy this time of life
When everything is right.
Go fly to Never Never Land
And stay the way you are.
The world will never change you
And you'll never become


Just a quick note. This is probably my favorite poem I've ever written. Like, ever. I was thinking one day, "I want to write an autobiography. All poetry." So this is the poem I wrote for when I was about four years old. I played a fairy in a Midsummer's Night Dream and everything in life was just SO right. Perfect. Nothing was wrong. That obviously changed. This is almost a letter to me, I guess. But this poem is my favorite, and I hpe you'll like it half as much as me.

Life in the slow lane

In two weeks from now, I will officially be a junior at the public highschool in my town. AAH! I entered in April, but this is my first first day and Its my first whole year. Absolutely terrifying if you think about it. Anywho, prayers would most definitely be appreciated. I'll be joining the swimteam at school and auditioning for the Fall play and Spring Musical. I'm also hoping to audition for Footelights' production of "Our Town", which I just read for summer reading. Speaking of Our Town, if you haven't read it, I recommend you do so immediately.

I just did tech work over the weekend for Footelight Theater Company's production of 'The Wizard of Oz". There are pictures in the previous post =)

I'm super excited to go school supply shopping. I know, I know, I'm a dork =).

My birthday is coming up! August 21! Five days. I'll legally be able to do... well, nothing really.

Anywho. That's what's happening in the slow lane. Peace out!

This weekend, I was a lovely techie for the lovely performances of "The Wizard of Oz" done with the lovely Footelights Theater Company.

Here are some pictures that I took with my not so lovely phone camera... And a few I stole from various cast and crew. PS. My sister played the Wizard. She was hysterical.

The Truth

You're beautiful
Inside and Out.
You don't need makeup.
You don't need a man to love you.
You already have three in one.
Your body is beautiful.
You're not an object.
Love is not sex,
And sex is not love.
You ARE worth it,
Someone would give His life for you.
Your worth dying on a cross for.
Your life is worth living.
You are unforgettable
You are forgivable
You are perfect the way you are:
The Divine Artist makes no mistakes.
You ARE loved.
The perfect man doesn't want you to change.
In His eyes, you are worth everything.
The Truth is so beautiful.
Why are we lied to?


I'm Yours,
My Lord,
I'm all Yours.
Take my impurities,
My fears and my hurts.
Transform my heart
To look like Yours
Make it my deepest desire
To dwell with You.
Make my dream
Only to praise You.
Take it all,
It's all Yours.
I am nothing without You.
With You,
I need nothing more.
Clean my soul,
It's Yours.
Take me,
My Lord,
Do as You wish with me.
I'm Yours.
Here I am,
I come to do Your will.
I'm Yours.

Are you BORED?!

Ten things I do in my spare time


Write stories

Brush my Hair

Play piano... badly.


Sing Taylor Swift Songs.




Look at wedding dresses

I love Taylor Swift...

"To me, FEARLESS is not the absence of fear.
It’s not being completely unafraid.
To me, FEARLESS is having fears.
FEARLESS is having doubts.
Lots of them.
To me, FEARLESS is living in spite of those things that scare you to death.
FEARLESS is falling madly in love again, even though you’ve been hurt before.
FEARLESS is walking into your freshmen year of high school at fifteen.
FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again… even though every time you’ve tried before, you’ve lost.
It’s FEARLESS to have faith that someday things will change.
FEARLESS is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you can’t breathe without them.
I think it’s FEARLESS to fall for your best friend, even though he’s in love with someone else.
And when someone apologizes to you enough times for things they’ll never stop doing, I think it’s FEARLESS to stop believing them.
It’s FEARLESS to say “you’re NOT sorry”, and walk away.
I think loving someone despite what people think is FEARLESS.
I think allowing yourself to cry on the bathroom floor is FEARLESS.
Letting go is FEARLESS.
Then, moving on and being alright…That’s FEARLESS too.
But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in love stories and prince charmings and happily ever after.
That’s why I write these songs.
Because I think love is FEARLESS.
