Gooooooooooooooooood Thursday dreamers, and saints! I always feel so tickled when I read through your comments, and words. I hope you know, you make me feel so good inside. Want to know what else makes me feel good? Cute boys! Cute boys who talk to you! Yeah! I am a girl. A girl who can't help but love those cute boys. Now, I just need to make one of those "cute" boys "mine".... but how can a girl do that when she's so very shy like me?

I always see these lovers, holding hands, walking through the streets. I look at them. I look through them, and I wonder. What is their story? How did they fall into the arms of love like that? How were they living before one another? Were they really "living"? How did they "find" love? Is it even love? There are many loving lessons, I must learn. And I hope to learn. I know I'm 16, but I still have a heart. A heart that's much too big for me. I hope to find someone to share my heart with, and god knows, I hope they'll share their heart with me too.

If you've found love, you are lucky, and I ask of you, what's your story?

Although, I don't have a love to share life with, I can say, I fall in love with my surroundings every day. I fall in love with the sky. I fall in love with the blossoming flowers. I fall in love with the people who greet me, as I walk in the streets alone. I fall in love with the dresses I see, the hats I carry, and the boots that I stomp in. Life is beautiful, and when it's not beautiful, it's a time of growth. We are all flowers, and like flowers, we need rain, and dark and cloudy days, in order to grow, and look radiant on those sun-kissed days......... Thanks for listening! Stay beautiful my darlings!!

  7. Damn boys, seriously, I'm trying to get together with one guy. I keep on giving him hints and asking him to things. But nothing has happen. Also, he goes to the same university with me and he wants me to go to France with him as his companion. I hope that happens but I'm not sure if he wants a relation with me.

    Oh well, but I wish you the best with dating.

  10. I love the your post today. I'm not very much of a relationship person myself. I very seldom get myself a boyfriend. I guess I just don't want to deal with all of the ones that aren't right for me, and find that "right one".

    ReplyDelete
  11. mmm, your skirt and suspenders are adorable!
    i'm afraid my heart is much too big for my fifteen year old self as well, dearie... we're definitely in the same boat here :)

    i personally haven't felt love either, but i wish to experience it someday...

  20. I looove that green shirt!!! Looks like one that I have in pink. :)

  21. That falling in love photo is so cute.

    I am going to Fleetwood! Awful seats, but seats nevertheless.

    Calaway is exciting for about the first hour until you've gone on all of the decent rides. Definitely something to go experience though.

    And yes, I live here as well! Although judging by the photos, you're on the other side of the city from me! Very cool to be reading posts from someone else living here though.

  26. I had someone a while ago, and though I'm still young it kills me to know I messed things up, we were just kids really.And I see him everyday.
    Love the outfit, the hat especially and the colour of the top, refreshing!

    you're outfit looks fabulous!

    And you're a good writer too.

    I know it's hard to wait for truth love, but i think that waiting is better, if you're not sure about you're love for someone else. If i love a boy, i will always love him, and be his wife at some day.
    You're only 16, a lot of time left. Once he will be there for you.

    kisses Danielle

    Sorry for my bad english, dutch girl!

    hats suit you really good. hats look stupid on me! but i wish i could wear them because there are so many cute styles

    ReplyDelete
  39. my dear, you are only sixteen years old?? holy wow! i can't believe that. i thought you were probably my age (23) i was wrong...you look so much older then sixteen...and gorgeous! my goodness. i wish my style was as incredible as yours at 16...or even now!

    i hate to maybe bring you down a little bit but sometimes you have to wait awhile for love...i was in the samesamesame boat as you when i was a teenager. i didn't find the love of my life until a little over a year and a half ago. i found a lot of fun boys in between though...but guess what? me & my boyfriend are perfectly happy now! it is well worth the wait miss.

    xo!
    carly.

  43. These pictures are beautiful.. I love that color teal on u!

    I have found love 4 years ago and you will know when it happens.. you may have to come across some obstacles (aka douchebags) along the way but never give up hope! Always be yourself and you will find your better half one way or another :) For me it was love at first sight and I once read somewhere that as long as you have at least 2 of these: passion, respect, and admiration within a relationship, you don't have to die to go to heaven. And I have all 3 so always be open-minded and it will come at the right moment!

  45. i'm very shy as well lady, just be patient, the right guy will some along, fall right into your lap!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I too am quite a shy girl.
    Have been so my whole life.
    Awkward, even, more into books than makeup.
    I never thought I would find anyone who would get me, love me for who I was, or see past the feminist shell to the rest of me.
    I was wrong.
    I met "the one" and it wasn't like the movies I'd fantasized over, it was better. It was instant like a polaroid, addictive, insatiable, eternal, terrible, scary, but wonderful all at once.
    I got married pretty young, but I'm 20 and have been married for 3 weeks to the only man I can ever love.

    You're young. Hang in there and just be yourself. Stay shy. Don't try to force anything. Just be yourself and go with the flow.

    This was my mildly apologist engagement post:

  47. You know what, Amy, I think you're going to be good if you write poetry. Your posts are just so inspirational.

    Ahh. Love, it might be really stupid and wonderful at the same time. I'd love to have a ridiculous and sweet story in the end to tell my grandkids. Haha=)) Well, we're all hopeless romantics you know. =))

    And just to let you know, your photos are just as enchanting as your clothes. :)

  50. Me and boy knew each other but not well. Then came working at the same supermarket after school, then two disco pashes. Then it occured to me he wasn't a total shit.

    That was 4 years ago. He is kind of awesome. I was 17 and in my last year at school, he was my first serious boyfriend. Mummy always said don't waste your own, or anyone elses time unless you are really like each other. Be fussy. Excellent words of wisdom.

  52. beautiful post! You write so well! Very inspiring :)
    As always you look amazing! The suspender skirt is super cute!
    I've never been in love. I'm 16 as well and I really like someone and I think he likes me but nothing has happened, so I'm not really sure at this point what we'll end up doing. He's a couple years older than me but not nearly ld enough for it tp be creepy or anything. What do you think, be honest, is it wierd that I like a 22 year old?
    Thanks for the comment, that was so sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Ok first of all ... YOU HAVE GOT TO GIVE ME AT LEAST ONE BOOK RECOMMENDATION PLEASE? :)
    second: you look absolutely amazing! I know it´s a bit of a cliché comment to give because everyone says the same but you really really do!
    I am in love with your hair! SO MUCH!
    And the colour of that top you´re wearing is just perfect on you!!

    I am exactly the same as you when I see people in love I always think .. how? when? where? why? :)
    I question it all... But seriously believe me you shouldnt worry about finding love. You should worry about having too many cute boys loving you! I am assuring you of that! :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. i have very similar questions when i see lovers/couples on the street. and i must admit, i am supremely jealous of the comfort level that must come with that sort of intense feeling for another person. to be so passionately ecstatic about another person (who feels the same about you) on a constant basis just seems like a permanent high. sigh...our turn will come soon, my lovely!

  74. I know what you mean! I'm shy too and I have no idea how to approach a guy... and I end up not doing anything.

    Well, I wish you all the luck in the world and I hope you finally make him yours (:

  77. i fell in love with a boy who, because of distance, can't be "mine" anymore. and yet i just got off the phone with him after talking for an hour at 1 in the morning, and the last words we said were "i love you". and i'm grinning like a 6 year old with a crush. i get to see him in a week and i don't think time could go any slower.

    i also fell in love with your OUTFIT! that top is stunning, and looks amazing with the skirt. actually, all your outfits are superb. definitely linked you, hope that's ok. :)
