The Best Experience in the History of Experiences

Last week, on September 13th, 2013, two amazing things happened.

  1. Niall Horan--of One Direction--turned 20! *sends glittery kisses into the wind* I didn't forget you, baby! I promise!
  2. I met up with the most amazing person that has ever come into existence.



^^^ *sniffles* Here is a photo of our good-bye hug. Kenz added the glitter. ;)

My family and I had to drive about three and half hours, to get to our meeting place--which was a beautiful Barnes and Noble full of amazingly exquisite books [it was quite heavenly].

The whole trip there I was bubbling with excitement. Rocking in my seat, tugging at my hair, belting out the lyrics to any songs I knew when they blasted out of the speakers. I had a little brother to my left, a window to my right and a present in my lap--and a stuffed Pikachu at my feet. o.O

Finally, we arrived at our destination. I cannot describe to you the feeling of walking up to that bookstore, and having a someone whom you haven't physically interacted with, burst through the doors and crash into your arms. I waited for over a year to get that hug. Over a year. And I must say, it was definitely worth the wait.


*sniffles then wipes cheeks* And this is a photo of our first embrace. *smiles through tears* Kenz initiated this hug. She shoved the doors open and just *BAH BAM* found her way into my arms. OH, you just don't know how wonderful that feeling was. Plus... *leans toward computer and whispers* she smelt good. Which was like, a bonus. o.O

After our embrace, we went inside, and I met her extremely beautiful family. Then we sorta just hung out among the books, stroking covers, giggling over fangirl details and such. It was pretty awesome.



And that my dear friends is the back of Mackenzie's head [ isn't it beautiful? <3_<3 ] This is what happens when you leave your sister to the photography portion of your Internet friend meeting...

After an hour at le bookstore we made our way over to Chipotle [dude, you gotta try it. it's an ah-mazin' Mexican grill/restaurant/place...]. And on the way, we had the most beautifully awkward conversation that went something like this:

Me: ...you are even more beautiful in real life. •-•

Kenz: Oh gosh, no. •-•

Me: Oh gosh, yes. (•-•)-<3

Kenz: Mhm, okay. •-•

Me: It's true. Don't deny meh.

^^ Why am I so awkward?

And after a laughter-filled meal--and a gift exchange [we both got each other "The Fault In Our Stars"!]--it was time for our good-byes...

 

^^^ our "un-glitter-ified" good bye hug.
...sheesh, my hair is all over the place! >.<

I can tell you that good bye felt like I was ripping my heart out of my chest. Before we parted she gave me the most beautiful drawing--which I am clutching in my hand in the picture above.


Here is a photo of it. *sniffles* I framed it as soon as i got home. I think it's the start of my best friend shrine. o.O





^^^ psst...if you look closely enough you can see I have glitter on my forehead...
Yeah, it was part of my "parting gift". •-• [thank you Koren. <3]


Mackenzie is a quiet soul.
A very beautiful, quiet soul.
She didn't say a lot.
But she didn't have to.
Just seeing her smiling face
and feeling her embrace was
something words could ever describe,
no matter how far you stretch them.

Thank you, Kenz.
And remember;
I love you.

thanks for reading. <3
xoxo,

      To continue (I just had to be the first one to comment) : I am going to find you two girls and kidnap you and take you to a mysterious old bookstore (full of filtering rays of light and ancient specks of dust). And you two are going to be *cough* my people, and I shall make it that you will never depart; not on this earth, not in the eternities, not EVEH! And each day I'll come ask if you need anything else, but with each other you'll most likely say, "Nope, thanks" at the same time, and then erupt into gorgeous fits of laughter. And I'll smile and understand, and go back to my prayer of overwhelming gratitude to my God and my King who has in His infinite love brought meh tearfully perfect match of best friends together. And you can have any food you want, and you can read any book you want, and you can do ever so many things, and your dreams will come true each day, and magic will swirl around you, and angels from Heaven will protect you, (and when I say you, I mean Rosie+Kenz), and your family[ies] can (will) come see you, and every day it will become more real and you'll see that it's not a fantasised dream anymore: it's the beautiful truth.

    2. Oh Les... *sniffles* That was beautiful. Just beautiful. <3

      I would actually quite appreciate if that happened. I want to be with my Kenz again. And such a scenario would be a perfect bringing together, no? Thank you so much for your comments. I really appreciate them. <3

      I wish I had more to say, but your comment/s have left me utterly speechless. <3

How to Begin Your Self-Love Journey This Year

When I originally had the idea for this piece of writing I’m about to share with you, I was in a place of transition. I didn’t know my place in the world, I didn’t know if I was worth it and I certainly didn’t feel like I could love myself. Here I am almost a year later, an example of how this works - if you choose to put it into practice. You can improve and learn to love yourself. You can take the steps that bring you into a better place.

I won’t say it was easy and I certainly won’t say I had overnight success, but when you learn to fight your battles one at a time, you’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.

Are you ready to take the first step?



Self Love: Step one I have always been a timid person. I’ve always had trouble keeping the standards I have for myself something below what I deem “perfect”. I enjoy discipline and when I don’t know what to do or my world is shaken, I’m hard on myself.

That’s just who I am.

With that said, I've always felt like I was not a…

A Love Letter

To my dear, blooming Rose - Attached to this letter is not only my love, but my gratitude, thankfulness and a small box of decadent dark chocolates. I would've had flowers delivered too, but no measly plant could ever compare or express my feelings toward you.

Ahh, my dear. You are my truest bundle of joy. It does not matter what mood you are in - you light up my day in the most wonderful of ways.

Your smile makes the sun jealous. Your embrace makes me feel full. Your laughter - so thick and loud - makes me want to laugh too.

What I love most is when you are truly and purely being yourself - because that's who you're meant to be.

With much love and kisses blown with a wink,
Your Secret Admirer

PS: Maybe we could share those chocolates later, eh?

When you need some uplifting, write yourself a love letter. Be silly and positive. Analyze yourself. Amp up your best qualities. De-sock your feet as you write and wiggle your toes as your write (then put your socks back on b…

How to Manage Your Creative Time

Being productive can be hard, especially when you have too many things on your to-do list, and have no idea where to start. As a human who likes to pack a lot of stuff into their day, I've struggled with managing my blogging time and balancing it with everything else I need to do.

Here are some tips to help you manage your time (whether it be for blogging or anything else). :)


Being productive can be hard, especially when you have too many things balanced on your plate. Most of the time, you don’t know where to start. As a human who likes to pack a lot of productivity into their day, I’ve struggled with managing my time - creatively and in the other areas of my life. The balancing act is hard, so I’ve compiled some of the tips that work best for me.
