Fly

I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive

I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise

To fly, to fly 

– Nicki Minaj and Rihanna

Greetings! Today, I write to you poolside, workin’ on my tan lines, and soaking up the first few days of Summer 2012.

It is everyone’s favorite time of year: lazy lake days, pool parties, summer vacations, cute little outfits, and even cuter shoes.

I do not know about you all but summer is a busy time for me. Every weekend is packed to the hilt with gatherings, get-togethers, and fun-filled activities. However, this year is a liiiiiittle different. Read More

Take Care

Pushing me away so I give her space

Dealing with a heart that I didn’t break

I’ll be there for you, I will care for you

I keep thinking you just don’t know

Try to run from that, say you’re done with that

On your face girl, it just don’t show

When you’re ready, just say you’re ready

When all the baggage just ain’t as heavy

And the parties over, just don’t forget me

We’ll change the pace and we’ll just go slow

Won’t ever have to worry.

– Drake feat. Rihanna

A few months ago I had to have a discussion with Bubba.

It went something like this: Read More

Never Say Never

Picture, you’re the queen of everything

As far as the eye can see

Under your command

I will be your guardian

When all is crumbling

To steady your hand

– The Fray

Once upon a time…

I used to not-really-know this girl that really did not like me.

For reasons unmentioned, her feelings were understandable and we tried to go our separate ways.

A few not-so-short years later, our worlds collided for what I thought to be the last time.

I was wrong.

Fast-forward a not-so-long time later to now, when the glaringly ironic differences between our two lives is not-so-subtly laid before me…

And we both lived happily ever after.

I hope.

Not-quite The End. Read More

Ours

Don’t you worry your pretty little mind,

People throw rocks at things that shine

And life makes love look hard.

The stakes are high, the water’s rough,

But this love is ours

– Taylor Swift

Hell On Heels

I’m hell on heels

Say what you will

I done made the devil a deal

He made me pretty

He made me smart

And I’m gonna break me a million hearts

I’m hell on heels

Baby, I’m coming for you

My Papa built racecars when I was growing up.

For as long as I can remember he would spend every night thirty yards away in his haven made of tin.

Papa and his buddies would build cars, drink beer, and who knows what else out in the car garage he had put in behind my Nana’s house. They spent weekends at the track, any track. My Papa lived for cars – and still does. Papa may have a hard time remembering to throw things away in the garbage can that has been sitting under his own sink for 30 years but the man can tell you the make, model, and motor type of any car with his eyes closed – and his hearing is not that great either (… wonder why).

So naturally, I was born with Havoline running through my veins. Read More
