dead hearts are everywhere. dead hearts are everywhere.

I'm pretty sure I speak for every single girl (and probably boy too) when I say that being single isn't easy- especially during the holidays.  There just something about the falling snow and twinkling lights that elicits PDAs, even without the help of mistletoe.  It's not that us singletons are bitter or jealous, but rather … Continue reading dead hearts are everywhere. dead hearts are everywhere.

living alone, here in this place. i think of you, and i’m not afraid.

Closure.  This is ultimately the one thing that people seek following a break-up.  Others may want their favorite sweatshirt back, or perhaps a hot new fling, but most who have ever gotten their heart broken in the history of broken hearts will confirm that closure is the ideal parting gift. Now I can't quite say that "Cleveland" and I have … Continue reading living alone, here in this place. i think of you, and i’m not afraid.

i might look the same, but i’m a little different now

This weekend while catching up on some of my DVR shows, I discovered Gemma Hayes.  Now if I haven't said it before I'll say it now, I am a quotes & lyrics girl.  You'll see this throughout my posts if you haven't noticed it already.  I believe it's the writer in me.  As Adriana said … Continue reading i might look the same, but i’m a little different now
