'A Rose Is Still A Rose'

2010, for me, has been a year of discovery, change, great joy, sorrow, and growth. I've learned a lot, in general, and about myself; I have grown as a person in so many ways. As this year comes to an end, this is the knowledge that I have learned and that I come away with for the rest of my life:

"Sometimes, it is not until you fall, fast and hard, and almost hit rock bottom, that you realize that you could fly all along." ~Me

Loveliness extreme.
Extra gaiters,
Loveliness extreme.
Sweetest ice-cream.
Pages ages page ages page ages.
