What do you think? I’m not a starfish or a pepper tree. I’m a living, breathing human being. Of course I’ve been in love.

Bonjour! Hello! Months seem to pass, and I'm left with an untouched blog.. I feel guilty. Really guilty. I can't master an excuse or reason why I have neglected all of you, but sometimes in life, the clock strikes, over and over, and you feel like all you've done is sat alone, watching time escape. If I could take this hour glass, and turn it back over, you know I would.

Things are changing.
My pores are glistening with hope. My eyes are seeking the beauty of life. For the first time, my thoughts are light with optimism. I feel young, I feel youth, I feel love, I feel life. I feel everything. I feel all shades, all tones, all good feelings. I have a lover in my heart, a puppy in my bed, and a sadness that's shrinking. I don't know whats brought on this change of thought, for tomorrow it could be gone, but today, I am relishing on this contentment that's blooming through my veins.

Do you realize how precious life is? How precious it is to greet the hands of strangers, to kiss the lips of soul mates, to spill conversation with company. The luckiest are those who know the preciousness in their life, and hold onto it. If only, I always had this appreciation, I'd constantly be this happy.

Now, as I write to you, I am no longer a 16 year old girl. I had my birthday a week ago, and nothing has changed, despite this new found happiness. I'm still Amy. I don't believe the happiness I feel is from a change in age, but it's possible....

My thought says, "no more regrets." As long as I smiled, enjoyed, lavished, laughed, then regrets are dinosaurs, extinct. I wish I could tell the world how in love with it I am. I love you world. I love all that's good, I'd love to fix all that's bad. I want to plant you with pumpkin seeds, and watch you grow.

Now, my promise of a new year, is NO MORE NEGLECTING of my blog. I am going to post every single week! I am feeling inspired. The love that's beating beneath my heart is what's making my inspiration flourish. Oh the loveliness of love. May you all feel love too.xoxo.

  25. I couldn't agree more. Gotta love life, every aspect, ever smile, every kiss. I love how you're feeling, I feel like that on most days but it's lovely to be reminded. Thank you for your words of merriment! Isn't optimism just bliss? Have a lovely Christmas :)!

  26. hello! your outfit is lovely, i especially like the black skirt it almost looks like tulle! also, i noticed the quote on the left side of your blog (the one that starts "i dress for...not for men") - i love it! i remember almost starting an argument with someone because she had said the only reason women dress up is to make other women feel bad (??) and to impress men. not in so many words, but that was the thought process. i thought, how irritating! she doesn't get it. anyway! xo

  27. Amy!!!! I am SO glad you commented on my post because funny thing is that last week I was looking for your blog but couldnt find it anywhere... I forgot what the link name was and so I was typing in all these things into google and it never came up! so frustrating! So yes hereby thank you for letting me find you again ahah!

    I guess I could say welcome back! dont you leave for too long this time! Also happy birthday for last week and Merry Christmas for now!
    I hope you can share all that love with the blogosphere :D

    And Blood Bank is an incredible song, I know! What do you listen to? well I know it must be pretty similar to me but still... what are your favorites right now??

    PS: I love that outfit on you. The skirt and top look like a dress! xx
