Let My Girls Be Hermiones

 I've got two daughters who will have to make their way in this skinny-obsessed world, and it worries me, because I don't want them to be empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones; I'd rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny – a thousand things, before 'thin.' And frankly, I'd rather they didn't give a gust of stinking chihuahua flatulence whether the woman standing next to them has fleshier knees than they do. Let my girls be Hermionesrather than Pansy Parkinsons. Let them never be Stupid Girls. Rant over.
-- J.K. Rowling

Lazy Summer

sleeping to the rhythm of when I want to, instead of when I have to

pajamas in the kitchen, smells of brewing coffee, waking up slowly

leisurely mornings of puttering and putzing and tidying and surfing

music and long showers and phone calls and wondering where the hours have gone

dreaming during the day

sunshine and air conditioning and sister time with G and movies and netflix

coffee shops and restaurants and shopping

friends and friends and friends and friends

calm days and peaceful nights

My Favorite Quote

"For every super-hot girl, there's some guy somewhere who's tired of putting up with her crap."

Haha :)  I love it.

The Other Side of Me

The Other Side of Me
sung by Michael W. Smith
If they were to write about the story of my life,
They would have to mention you with every page they'd write.
There's another side to every story told.

If I were the ocean, you would be the shore.
One without the other one would be needing something more;
we are the shadow and the light.

Always love me
Never leave me now
Now you are
the other side of me

I have known the emptiness of feeling out of touch,
and living life without you here would be living half as much.
'Cause I've a need that only you could fill.

If love was mathematical, you'd understand the sum
To the heart's equation where one and one makes one
and lonely equals me minus you.

Always love me
Never leave me now
Now you are
the other side of me
