She's Back!

I know. It has been "oh so long". I have just been pretty darn busy lately. However, I am back to get the creative juices flowing. It's about time.

So, lately I have been writing and doodling some stuff. It's not a novel exactly, just some chapters of a book. I have to say, it's not that bad. I will have to post you some of it sometime soon. It's coming along swimmingly. 

School has been... well, school. Lots of work, long talks with teachers, and essays coming out of my ears! I can't say that I hate, because, I don't. I actually like it. 

I have gotten all of my applications together for the school I am applying for. I am nervous because I am obviously not the only one applying, so cross your fingers!

My whole life has been centered around dancing lately. I wake up and stretch each morning so I don't get tight, and I go to bed dreaming of pierouttes and a la' secondes. It's an awkward feeling, but I like it. I don't think I could ever be rid of dance. 

We are going to Michigan next week, so I will try to post as much as possible. I MAKE NO PROMISES!

I guess that just about fills you guys in. I didn't realize how much I missed this stuff. I will definitely be writing more often. Talk to you soon!

Kiss! Kiss!

These past few weeks have been some of the best I have had in a long time! Christmas was a wonderful time, filled with joy and a feeling of hope was in the air. A good vibe was sent around the whole house. This was becausewe had so much family, it felt just like home again. Don't get me wrong, I am home, it just doesn't feel "homey" yet. Hopefully, once we get to the new house all of that will change. My Daddy just got back from his hockey game in Michigan, and I missed him terribly. He brought me back a surprise, and you are not going to believe what it was! It was a LIFE magazine dedicated to Audrey Hepburn, every page filled with pictures of her. I will cherish that magazine forever, and the twelve dollars spent on it was a good investment. The pictures were taken by a photographer well cherished by Audrey, which made this magazine EXTRA special. There were never before seen photos, I was brought to tears when he pulled it out of his suitcase.

Dance classes have been going great these last couple of weeks. I am finally getting a feel for the studio, and the people surrounding me are truly starting to feel like family. The good thing about this place is that you run into someone everywhere you go. Of course, this isn't ALWAYS a good thing, but it sure makes you feel loved. I want to join a Church Youth Group sometime soon, it will help me find friends, but will also help me build a stronger relationship with God. HE has been EXTRA good to me lately, and I owe him something. I feel like praying isn't enough, I want to learn more about Him, I want to talk to Him. I want to repay Him in any way possible. I have been trying to work on my attitude, but I need Him by my side, for he is everywhere, and He will help anyone who comes to Him. Thank you, Lord, for all You do for me and my family. Thank You for blessing everyone on earth, for helping everyone who asks for Your help, and thank You for giving us each day to live. I am truly grateful, and I hope that one day I can learn more about You, one day soon. "Live each day as if there were no tomorrow". What a beautiful saying, and how amazingly true. Thank You, Lord, for giving us our everything. I have my faith, and that is all that matters.

Love for always,

Life is Marvelous

“Pick the day. Enjoy it...the day as it comes.People as they come...The past has helped me appreciate the future, don't frett about it"~Audrey Hepburn


I always tend to worry about the future... that is who I am! Although, worrying gives you wrinkles, and in the end can ruin your complexion. We all worry about things, but I tend to worry about small things. Such as rain, drought, hair, make up, clothes, etc... Oh, but ofcourse we should talk about something else... HAPPY HALLOWEEN! We have all been waiting for this day... well most of us! My blanket is laid out on the couch, and "Wait Until Dark" is sitting on top of the DVD. Ofcourse, the lights will be on... some know what a chicken I am when it comes to scary movies. So, just in case, they will be ON! We all know we need a treat every now and then, so I picked myself up a lil something! Welp, I have a tub of Vanilla Bean Haagen-Dazs ice cream calling my name, and high screeches are sure to occur. So, if you hear any screaming tonight... don't we worried! It's just me! Hope you all enjoy your Halloween night, and enjoy giving out sweet candy to little chicklens! We all know all of the fun stuff happens later into the night! That is, I will be sound asleep!

"If you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm... the second is to help others" ~Audrey Hepburn

I recently read a terrific book, and I highly recommend it. It is called "Ana's Story" by Jenna Bush. It is about her time working with Unicef, and a wonderful woman's story. The main reoson I read it was because, ofcourse, Audrey worked with Unicef in her later years. I am so glad that I did. This book has had such a big impact on my life, I joined a program that benefits Unicef. You raise money through your own business, and donate it. There are also many other programs you can join. Some of which you have to be older to join. Anyways, the book is about a woman named Ana. It talks about her life from childhood all the way up to adulthood. Through out her life she has been abused sexually, physically, and mentally. I won't give the whole story away, but I HIGHLY recommend it. I am not the book worm type, but I just couldn't put this book down! Please, if any of you want to help out the world in any way, this is the book you want to read. It also has websites and resources in the back of the book if there is any way you want to help out Unicef. That's how I got started! So..... GO! NOW!!! All of you WORLD-CHANGERS!!!

"You Can Always Tell What Kind of a Person a Man Really Thinks You are by the Earrings he Gives You." ~Audrey Hepburn


As you all know, Tiffany's just came out with a new project. Apparently, they are downsizing the size of their stores, so they could open a larger amount of them in different places... isn't it just marvelous? I cannot wait, for there is not a Tiffany's store near me. I have also found out what I want for Christmas. Thank you Tiffany's! It would be absolutely darling if I could get one of the new, one of a kind, Italian Audrey Hepburn Handbags, but they are not easy to find and are expensive. Maybe I will have to wait until later. Who knows? They may end up on Ebay. That is ofcourse, they will be much more valuable, and much more expensive! As Audrey Hepburn say
s, "I've been trying to save, but no matter what I do there always seems to be a couple of hundred dollars in the bank..." Ofcourse, my parents make me save, but like Audrey, I am not very good at it! Oh well, Christmas is around the corner. You all know what that means!

"When you have found it, you should stick to it." ~Audrey Hepburn


Everyone always tells me to stick to things. Even Audrey said it sometime in her life. In fact, that is one of her best quotes. I just started a new dance class. I've always dreamed of being a dancer, and as you don't know, I just moved far away from my old home. I am now in a new place, and I have to make new friends. I thought joining a dance class would help me get started. I started a new dance class, actually 3 new ones, and I must admit that I am struggling. I have been dancing since I was 2, and I was ready to go into pointe. I guess I was extremely wrong. I just started working on my pieroutte, and they are working on their pieroutte in second place. WOW... who knew these girls could be so good. Ofcourse, the though of quitting came to mind. Most people have this thought when they are struggling. I will not let that voice inside of my head keep me down. Audrey has convinced me to keep going and to never give up. I will stay in this class until my feet bleed if I have to! I will learn everything I need to learn and I will stick with it, as Audrey says! It may take me a little longer, but I will never give up. And to think, I thought I would have trouble making friends, not dancing. That is actually upside down. I made a ton of friends, it was the dancing that troubled me. I will do my best, and I will update you as soon as possible!
