Never Let Go. {Personal}


Love can save the world. Love can save a person. If we spent more time loving each other and less time hating each other….just think about how wonderful the world would be. I have a challenge for you…go up to someone that you don’t like and say something nice about them to them, and just…watch their reaction. It’s never too late to save a relationship. If you’re willing to put the effort in, you could become best friends with your worst enemy.

Love has taught me a lot….and it has saved me more than once. Coming from a difficult family life where my parents love and adore everyone except for me…I wasn’t sure that love was real….Over the past couple of years through relationships with my friends and those who were more than friends…I’ve found that love is not as mystical as the unicorns…it’s real, a feeling, an emotion…and if you want it to be, a lifestyle.

I have so many people in my life that I need to thank, just for loving me….They don’t know it, but their love and acceptance changed my life, and I am eternally grateful. ❤

I love you all, and appreciate your continued support. Have a wonderful day.




Back in July, I did a fun photo shoot with a group of my friends. We met at an old abandoned house around 1 o’clock in the afternoon and we sat around in one of the rooms and did the zombie makeup…before we left, I put them in the bathtub at the old abandoned house. ♥

… We then drove an hour and a half to Mt. Pleasant, MI (yes, with ALL of that itchy makeup on their faces) and did an epic adventuresome photo shoot!

It was an incredibly fun day. I hope to get to hang out with all of them again very soon…but maybe next time without so much rotting flesh…. ♥

Here are some of my favorite images from the shoot:

{Breathing Slowly}

Take a moment. Just one moment. Breathe in, Breath out.

Some days we lose sight of what we really need. Some days we lose track of ourselves.

Be careful who you trust. Some people can say they’re your friends, all the while holding a knife to stab you in the back with. The important thing is to be thankful for the time you have with others…if things turn out bad and they end up not being who you think they were…just remember the good times. We can’t control what happens in life or how people treat us, all we can control is how we treat ourselves and how we treat others. This is a very hard lesson for me. Being a person who always wants to help others, I find it very difficult when I can’t control a situation, when I can’t “save” someone. Sometimes things happen in our lives that force us to take a step back and look at what is really going on…and sometimes, we don’t like what we see.

On a better note, I’m currently working on logo designs. Options will be posted soon so that you can vote on your favorite!

I love you all, and appreciate your continued support. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Amelia Rebecca {SENIOR 2012}

Amelia is one of my best friends. I remember “welcoming” her into high school her freshman year…she was my little freshman and now she’s a senior. Life moves so fast, doesn’t it?
