Hello everyone!

I do have to apologize for the mini rant I went on yesterday. I was just so frustrated. So angry. I know I probably shouldn't write with that sort of angry passion here on the blog, but I never want to feel inhibited on what I can and cannot post. I want it to feel like a place of refuge, safety, and sanity. It's always been that and I never want to lose it. I know it probably scares you all (and frankly I scare myself) but that's who I am sometimes. I'm a real person with real feelings who really does get angry and upset. This is a place to show all that and it just so happens that my 'diary' is read by 563 people.

Anyways, today really was the perfect kick off to the summer. I went to the pool early this morning with my sister and just lazed around the pool side for a few hours in glorious relaxation. I caught up on some of my magazines, and some much needed sun. I'm definitely paying for it now because I've felt sick and dizzy all day; my body isn't used to being out in the 90+ degree heat! After the pool I came back and got dressed for these pictures which were so much fun to take. I'd forgotten what it feels like to take pictures when I'm not tired from being at school all day! They can actually be fun ;)

After pictures I went to Matt's house where we made peanut butter squares and played with his adorable little pup Bella...Such a relaxing, lovely day! I truly am looking forward to enjoying this summer and finding out more about myself before I go off to college. This will be a time of wonderous self discovery

Oh! And before I forget- this little romper is for sale in my online shop! Isn't it too cute? I bought it for the Goodwill Fashion Show but ended up going with a different theme for the collection and it didn't match in very well. I do love it, but I feel as though I already have too many just like it!

Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day and thank you for putting up with my craziness.
With much love, Lauren

So pretty, as per usual! The colour of the dress suits your skin tone so nicely and the flower crown just makes it! Mental note: Need to learn how to make one of those. Keep it up my lovely lady!!

One of the things that I enjoy about your blogs is your thoughts. It's different than what other blogs offer and it's very real and very personal.

Emily said...

You really are the most beautiful girl I've seen (not really met, although I would love to meet you!). Thank you for proving to everyone that you really are real, often times I bottle up my feelings and don't spill them out like you did in your I Hate post. But you look absolutely gorgeous in this post, and I just love it so much:)
