"I just want you to smile."

[photo via pinterest]

"Come on."
She says with a smile.
He states, trying to keep his scowl in place.
"I said, no."
"Come on! I just want you to smile."
"Because I need to get your picture."
"Well, when you put it like that...NO."
She sighs, lifting her head from behind the camera.
"Pretty please? With a cherry on top?"
"I don't like cherries."
She huffs.
"You're stubborn."
She states.
"Not as much as you."
He lets a small curve appear in his thin-lipped frown.
She snaps the picture.
She laughs, turning and racing down the path.
"Come back here!"
He chases after her.
They run around the yard.
The girl giggles.
The boy scowls.
She manages to snap another picture.
Then the boy jumps on her.
They land side by side on the muddy ground.
"Ow. What was that for?"
The girl mumbles.
"I want you to take my picture."
The boy mutters back, a seriousness covering his eyes.
"Because I want to remember this moment."
"You want to remember the moment when you attacked me?"
"No. I want to remember this."
He touches their lips together for a brief second.
The girl closes her eyes.
The boy slowly pulls back.
She shifts closer, holding the camera above their faces.
She whispers.
He states.
The camera flashes.
And the moment is caught.

  1. okay, okay... hold on. like--what?! Right when I think you couldn't get any more flawless! Like, how is it possible for ONE PERSON to be THIS flawless?! I don't even know. Srsly, I can't take this! -_-

    "I'm not flawless."

    "I'm not a good writer."

    psh, yeah right!

    You are wayyyyy too good for me. I don't even know why you still want me around! •-•

    You are... Perfection. nuff said.

    ^^^sorry about all that, I just can't contain this much flawlessness! \(•-•)-<3



    1. Kenz, honey... I'm not flawless. •-•

      Well I'm not, okay?

      And I'm not too good for you, it's the other way around. mOf course I want you around! Who wouldn't want you around?!?

      No I'm not. •-•

    Don't tell me you're not amazing or epic, Rosie.

    Here's the deal: Kenz is epic= Kepic. What would you prefer to be called?

    Rosie, you= amazing, buuuuut, Ramazing doesn't really have a ring to it. Neither does Rlawless (Rosie+Flawless). You must help me if you truly love me! Not only you, but everyone else. PEOPLE, WHAT DO I CALL ROSIE? Kenz, a little help here? Pretty please with a cherry on top? (Personally I love cherries).

    Beautiful writing. It made ME smile


    1. Erm...I'm sorry Lesie, but I have to. :-/

      Hehe, Kepic? I like that...

      Hmm...really I don't have a preference. You can call me whatever you'd like. You don't even have to give me a nickname. "Rosie" is good enough. •-•

      Aww, good. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. :)


  3. Rose, this is legit amazing. :') Like, I'm-crying-over-here-amazing.
    Keep writing! :)


    1. Oh wow, thank you!
      I'm so glad you like it. :)

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…


Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.

Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
