Letters To Muses (and Whoa, W)

11 Aug
A/N: This is unbeta’d per usual. Please forgive me the typos, grammatical slips and bobbles. I do not own the images featured in today’s essay, and I try to embed the links to their original owners/creators . Just click the pics…Bowing down to Tumblr and my newest addiction inspiration Pinterest.

Dear loveliest Rebel Royals and Majestic Misfits,

I have become a big filthy liar…yet again. Last time I said that I’d return to the Musings format that included both What The Fangirl Learned  as well as feature a new Royal Rebel in this post, and that is simply not the case today I’m afraid. Nope. Not when I woke up this morning and was greeted with such epic goodness in the form of a new joint Kristen and Rob interview for Breaking Dawn as featured in Entertainment Weekly (aka The biggest Twi FanGirls aside from @JoshuaHorowitz). 

As you already knew, since a lot of you are in a different time zone than I, EW included a 7 page spread in this Fall Movie Preview Issue (there are other movies released this Fall, not that you would know it) featuring the much-sought-after-though-rare joint interview with our Reigning Other Queen Kristen and her always illuminating partner Robert Pattinson. One of Kristen’s biggest supporters, director Bill Condon, also discussed insight and thoughts on the filming process.

I won’t rehash the interview with you all, firstly because I don’t have the magazine in my paws at this moment and I would like to comment and respond to something concrete (I’m all tactile and shit); and secondly, because this time tomorrow, you all will have probably already read, memorized and maybe created a gorgeous Tumblr edit featuring your own very favorite quotes from that interview. So this is me merely letting you readers know that I think you’re super-swell, and I’d like to ask you for forgiveness for not posting a timely Musings nor one that highlights the topics I had hoped to discuss with you. We can savor the lovelieness of the EW pictures and article together, though mmkay? I figured you’re all cool with it. Especially after glimpsing sputter-inducing pictures like:

Edward, LOOK at your HAWT new wife! And you're playing CHESS?

And zingy exchanges between Kristen and Rob such as:

Kristen: Now that I’ve seen parts of it [the final movie], Jacob and Bella’s chemistry in this movie is better than it’s ever been.

Rob: [Faux-glares at Stewart]. So uncool. 

Rob and Kristen, I mean, Edward and Bella enjoying a stroll

Kristen: [On finishing the final filming of the saga] It was oddly emotional the first time I got to set and saw everything and everybody.

Rob: Yeah, you were really sweet when you first showed up.

Kristen: Oh, shush. 

They would go on to “shush” each other, and speak of marriage and relationships and machinations of “chewing” through the brutal, bloody childbirth scene….It’s a fantastic interview. One of their very best in recent memory. Comfortable, light, playful and teeming with intimacy and admiration. Great enough to prompt me to rethink my topic of discussion for today’s essay.

I figured I would speak about the risks and benefits of participating in the work we love–our life’s work–as prompted by observing the joy and pride Ms Stewart invests and reciprocates within her own craft. As we witnessed her confident enthusiasm at Comic Con last month,

and rejoiced along with her when she arrived in London to begin production of Snow White and the Huntsman;

I  planned on discussing with you about how we can ensure such delight and pride in our own chosen paths and professions; to explore the tremendous courage it takes to embark on a new project as Kristen is, and to revisit our own steps taken to pursue our true bliss. Are you doing what you would like to, versus what you’re expected to do?  Are you settling? Are you taking the steps on the path that feels most fulfilling to you? It has been awhile since we’ve talked about following Bliss, hasn’t it, friends?

courage to be creative=following the bliss

My friend and fellow bliss-pursuer, @DeeDreamer16 linked me to an incredibly relevant blog post at–>> InOverYourHead.net . The author, Julien Smith, contemplates whether being lackadaisical is a major indicator that we are not following our bliss, not practicing and enacting our Life’s Work. Smith wonders if our nonchalant way of viewing our daily tasks in fact makes us useless. I gotta say, I tend to agree. If we’re not at least somewhat daunted by our goals, then why have them at all? The minute we become complacent with our surroundings, we lose the edge, the motivating elements that push us onward, towards the finish line…onward towards risk and and perhaps satisfying, glorious rewards that may include self-confidence, monetary security, a compassionate connection with others, meaningful personal relationships, pride in doing something for yourself, a contribution to humanity.

#bliss

I want to tell you, you Unconventional Beauties, that I’m pursuing a couple of projects for the Magical Little Practice and in some of my writing…and I’m absolutely quaking in my Chucks. I guess I haven’t grown too comfortable, as I feared I might when I was laid off from BastardNation two years ago. I’m a bit relieved to recognize  that I have not become useless and rote, while I easily could have. I’m freakin petrified. So I guess I’m on the right path after all.

Kristen, our Warrior Rebel, is moving onto her first high profile role since wrapping The Twilight Saga. She is stepping from the familiar perimeters of her co-stars (including her “never confirmed but obvious boyfriend” ~EW …WAT) and crew, from a character she embodied and inhabited for four years towards some unchartered territory. She is playing Snow White, Ms Badass Royal Rebel herself. She is shedding the comfortable skin of Bella Swan Cullen and embracing a new (literally) set of armor. Princess Snow is steadfast, precocious and full of conviction. She also, per Kristen’s report, is terrified. Except that instead of succumbing to the fear, Snow White is channeling it, using the uncertainty or doubt as kinetic fuel for her limbs and for her voice…She emerges empowered, confident and beautiful….and not at all surprisingly…This summer, so is Kristen Jaymes Stewart.

So here, my Other Warriors, is the reason why I cannot write anything more today about following Bliss and why I cannot find the words to illustrate my lessons learned as a fangirl…or why I cannot introduce another Royal Rebel this week. Because Kristen Stewart, our extraordinary and staggeringly stunning Reigning Other Queen, has arrived by way of a truly royal carriage: W Magazine. The photos and interview dropped online today, and after I picked myself off the floor from a dead faint, I realized I had absolutely no words. NO WORDS with which to construct a proper new Musings. And I’m typically a wordy, wordy bitch. So I sign off my letter to you MOO Readers requesting your forgiveness… but something tells me you don’t really mind. If you’re even reading these ramblings anymore. Because, yeah. Kristen looks fucking phenomenal. And she appears poised and ready. to. go. That’s all we really need to know right now.  That and how great I think you all are. You serve as my muses every day…just as our Reigning Queen does.

I would like to articulate to you one day soon how honored I am that some of you have chosen me to be a sounding board and guide as you pursue your own blissful endeavors. The talent you possess knocks my socks off. I will tell you as much personally if and when I get the chance…Until then, check you at the bottom for a couple of announcements, my Lovelies. Take care of yourselves and each other. Continue following the Bliss and embracing your Other. xo, KJ

And I fucking love the way you growled and sneered just a little bit there in your declaration of love, Ms Stewart. Anyhoo, the following letter is just a note of appreciation to The Muse Kristen herself..a muse for me, for MOO, for the masses….

Dear Kristen,

I don’t think you quite understand the profundity of power you hold. You have stricken myself and other extremely eloquent and erudite friends/bloggers/writers/artists/Intellectuals/KristenSupporters/OtherSupporters completely wordless. Stunned. And it’s not just because of the loving, yearning dynamic you and Robert exhibit in those Breaking Dawn/EW pictures nor the glam-vixen beckoning to us from the cover of W. Arguably, this new photo spread and interview (plus screen tests, please, pliss can we see the outtakes of this otherworldly shoot??) for featuring photographs by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott; and Styling by Edward Enninful (bowing down) is your most spectacular to date. You invoke the spirit and ferocious beauty reminiscent of Bardot, Hepburn (Audrey and Kate), Fonda, Priscilla P, and Jackie O with your piercing, cat-lined, green eyes and tousled, voluminous bouffant; the leather, the fur, the pillow lips…

This is the most glamorous and unabashedly sexy version of you I’ve ever seen, but I believe that you have reached this pinnacle of smolder due to the collaboration of external assistance–your makeup artist and hair stylists are genius–with your luminous inner facilities. You are congruent and authentic. You are kind, but reserved; sensitive but guarded; Strong but not impenetrable; confident but not arrogant. We’ve watched you grow more comfortable and sure-footed in your own capacity to communicate your truth over the years, and it’s that quiet certainty that you exude that pushes you beyond the barriers of “lovely”, and into the realm instead of  resplendence. 

You tell W Magazine in your extremely cool and captivating screen tests what you were conscious of; your moment-to-moment awareness while growing up:

“I have….that so-called boyish quality was something that I was deathly self-conscious about when I was younger. I was, like, No, I’m a girl. Actually, I’m still embarrassed to say that.”

Uh. Yes. Yes you are indeed a girl. An astonishingly accomplished and genuine girl. You’re an excellent role model for anyone seeking an authentic guide…and an inspiring ambassador for #Other.

You said that upon filming your final, final scene for Breaking Dawn,

“I felt like I could shoot up into the night sky and every pore of my body would shoot light.”

I promise, you could…and you do. Thank you for providing some light, Kristen. Because now…You’ve sparked a whole new movement. Your supporters are pioneering, fierce, ambitious, genuine, confident, sensitive and uniquely gifted warriors, just like you. And we’re with you all the way. Keep going, Your Majesty, keep going. In awed gratitude, KJ

We Are Other.

Kristen Is Other.

Others exude light that can spark a new movement.

Embrace Your Other.

*   *   *

QUESTION(S):  Are you taking the steps along a fulfilling path? Are you settling? Have you recovered long enough from the shock of the W shoot and interview to share your reactions? 

A/N: I’m pursuing a couple of personal projects and business plans these next few weeks so I don’t think I will be able to write another full-fledged Musings for a little while. Quite possibly I’ll be back around Aug 23rd, but if Aug 28th rolls around and you haven’t heard from me, don’t panic. I’m leaving tomorrow for my hometown, to spend time with family, participate in some renovations and stroll down memory lane (could be traumatic, actually). I also will be seeing my gals from the KSIBTU Crew to celebrate Iris’s birthday in person. I will hopefully spend some time with my Cyber Soul Sisters @Mari and @RobKris13 as well (and maybe see Rob and Sam at the grocery store as they re-stock the kitchen?). Plus, I’ve some Red Cross projects I’m participating in, as well as an exciting writing adventure about which I’ll hopefully be able to elaborate on with you soon. Take care you gorgeous rabble rousers, and I’ll see you in a few weeks. Where we can talk Good Reads, Ramadan, the late Amy Winehouse, Sam Bradley, Cancer Bites and of course..Kristen Stewart and Otherness. Yours, xo, KJ

    Thank you KJ for your enthusiastic commets! very emotional and sweet and all those great responses.

    • KJ August 20, 2011 at 7:00 pm #

      Hi Emma! Thanks so much for sticking with me from the beginning. I love it when you drop by and update us on you and your daughter’s adventures. xo, KJ

  2. Steffi August 14, 2011 at 3:02 pm #

    I think Kristen IS the reigning queen… which is why I don’t like this photo shoot. It is too contrived. Too fake. Too much of a mask. She’s been poured into a tired old sex kitten mold. And yes, she fills it beautifully. She shows that she can work the mask better than anyone else. But she doesn’t need the mask. She breaks the mold. They’ve forced her back into it here. They’ve made her anything BUT “other.”

    Reviving the cat eye look has been a trend for several years now. The look is pure Bardot. Sophia Loren, even Audrey. All gorgeous, yet more famous for being bombshells or sprightly teases, than for being fierce artists.

    Something about a cat’s eye says hot mess… which could well explain why Aguilera, or Amy Winehouse ,and now even Taylor Swift has adopted the retro glam.

    But Kristen? Then again: this article isn’t about Kristen Stewart the person. It’s an interview with an actor promoting a film. And in order to protect her uniqueness, why wouldn’t a highly private actor don a multi-layered significance-heavy mask, as a protective shield?

    But if I were to choose a picture of this young woman that I find truly “sexy,” it would not be these shots. After all: our sex drive is our life force. And Ms. Stewart’s life force has has been deadened behind all the feminine cliches wound up in this make-up and hair styling.

    Kristen, pure Kristen, is far more “appealing” and unique and “other” in my book!

    • KJ August 15, 2011 at 7:42 am #

      Hi Steffi!

      I appreciate you and your thoughtful and beautifully articulated comment re: the W Mag shoot. I especially can agree with and appreciate your comment on how versatile and resilient Kristen is in being able to “work the mask” even though she certainly does not need to. That’s where my admiration for her and this shoot comes in: this girl can take on the wholly unexpected and merge and mold herself to be almost unrecognizable, much like she does in her film roles. She has said every time she does this that she finds some relatable thread amongst the unfamiliarity so that she can retain her own truth in it. Some part of her may have connected with the Bardot-Loren-Sixties-Bombshell-SexKitten concept…She’s preparing to immerse herself in another new mask of sorts, again, unexpected–but to me in hindsight, making complete sense–in SWATH. She takes risks and follows through on her business decisions with staggering conviction, which I admire greatly. Maybe that’s what I appreciate the most: her willingness to take risks and even while doing something unexpected and unusual (which is the root of ‘Otherness’) she invests herself 100% and will defend her actions to the end. And I love that she portrays “sexy” by way of Sixties Sirens…with their clothing still intact. . But I also agree with your idea of “sexy” and “appealing”…pure, natural and comfortable Kristen is by far my favorite as well. http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTUyzGJ_ijamL5R5qSaZV-NsTOK6-UUsOCPy7FW8ZGuKMdpsloPMQ Thanks for sharing your amazing thoughts! Best, KJ

      • Steffi August 16, 2011 at 8:37 am #

        I appreciate that Kristen’s path and choices stir up strong reactions and reflections in admirers following her career. She’s certainly doing something right in triggering our buttons in a stimulating way! Her steps are often unexpected, both off and on the beaten path, so it’s hardly surprising that we will have different takes on various moves she makes. The wonderful thing about your musings and this blog is that thoughtful and respectful discussion is welcome.

        I too am awed by the bravery Kristen shows in launching full throttle into her professional adventures. No matter what she commits to, and despite any doubts she may have over certain aspects of the project (too commercial? too syrupy? too cliched?), she digs deep and finds something genuine and meaningful that she can explore and express through it. She shows tremendous professionalism and integrity by totally committing to the project once the decision is made, which I think is why she always manages to craft a performance that touches us on a basic human level. It gives me a feeling that she is the epitome of the expression “I’m all in!” And in this day and age – especially for a young woman of her age in an era plagued by uncertainty and misgivings and hesitations – that alone is highly refreshing! It seems that the key to being “other” is being inherently oneself. True to oneself. Unique.

        As for this photo shoot: I hope it did make some of her detractors see how deeply Kristen disappears into her characters, to the point of becoming unrecognizable. I have a feeling many people see Bella as a very unextraordinary girl next door, with no great distinction or appeal physically or intellectually. They have consequently attached that same “blahness” to Kristen, instead of recognizing how well the actor has embodied the character by disappearing into her skin. This shoot certainly proves that she can identify with a different part of the human experience (vulnerable yet deliberate and stylized sensuality) and bravely share it with others.

      • KJ August 20, 2011 at 7:09 pm #

        Once again, Steffi, you leave such articulate thoughts I’m speechless and admiring. I love, love, love your conclusive thought: ‘the key to being “other” is being inherently oneself. True to oneself. Unique.’ I think one way we can continue to embrace our Other is to seek a meaningful, truthful connection in all we do, even if it’s unusual or unexpected. The way that Kristen sees through her professional and personal commitments “to the end” is inspiring…and extraordinarily brave. You’re right: the fact that the W magazine photo shoot incites differing reactions means that Kristen is doing something so very right. Thank you for sharing your thoughts in such an eloquent and respectful fashion. YOU incite discussion and passion as well. Always, KJ

    • emma August 15, 2011 at 1:16 pm #

      Loved your comment.

      • Steffi August 16, 2011 at 8:39 am #

        Thank you!

  3. SilverRizzo August 14, 2011 at 2:41 pm #

    I have been lurking here a lot of late. I find myself subconsciously nodding in agreement with everything you write. Your literary skills and the profound way you praise our Queen of Other coupled with the direct rapport you evidently tap into with you readers leaves me speaking directly to my computer screen (yes, I am that crazy lady!). Thank you for this blog!!

    Kristen looks beyond sublime in the W shoot. Her beauty transcends the photos. A sexy, smoldering, exquisite gem, amazing hair and makeup with eyes that know no bounds. Just when you think she can’t get any more awe-worthy, there she goes again!

    As for the fear of chasing after what the heart wants as opposed to ‘settling’, this is a task I have been (maybe not always so graciously as one would like!) grappling with since graduating University. The fear of not knowing what lies beyond the horizon, taking the initiative to reach out and go after my dreams, this is a reality I am only now beginning to embrace. To hell with social conformity or what is “expected” of me, or mindlessly meandering down a path I literally have zero interest in. After majoring in a subject I could honestly not care less for , I am investing all my savings in a postgraduate course specializing in the industry I have lusted after for quite some time. It’s scary, and risky and makes me squirm at the thought of actually leaping in. But it’s also a step in the right direction, and one more towards a career I can actually see myself in.

    So thank you once again for opening my eyes to the wider picture; The powerful force of following your heart, taking a leap of faith and embracing what ripples underneath our surface.

    Anyway, enough with my new-age lingo, (apologies for my rambling)… Kristen looks UH-MAZING…. and your beautiful words have cheered me right up 🙂

    Have a nice trip!

    • KJ August 20, 2011 at 6:59 pm #

      Hi SilverRizzo! I’m so so pleased that you stopped by to comment, peeking in from lurkdom! What an incredibly eloquent and kind comment you’ve left. I’m deeply humbled by your warm words and I LOVE that you’re speaking directly to your computer screen–if it’s of any comfort, I speak to my screen too, all the time, especially while writing a new post. So it’s like we’re talking it out together! I am so thrilled for you and the fact that you invested all your savings into a specialization for which you hold passion. I am in AWE of you for doing this! Have you heard the adage: “Take the leap…then the net will appear”? I fully believe in that. And you’re DOING it! Congratulations and go, go, GOOOO! xo, KJ P.S. NEVER apologize for rambles OR new-age lingo. The best ideas are derived from the free flow… 🙂

    I was going to comment, but really, old # 107 has said it all. You are a treasure.

    • KJ August 20, 2011 at 6:52 pm #

      Hmmm. You always can elicit a blush from me, M. Thank you for sticking with me and for your patience. I was talking about YOU among some other Others when I said your talents knock my socks off. I will respond to your project that you sent my way. I’m unbelievably honored you shared it with me. Please forgive me my tardiness in response. But I know you’re there. xo, KJ

  5. AitchCS August 13, 2011 at 6:42 pm #

    wow, Rob is always so Team Edward.

    • KJ August 20, 2011 at 6:51 pm #

      Hi there! I agree! Rob IS Team Edward just as Kristen always fiercely defends Bella, even when both characters behave questionably. I love how convicted and protective they both are of their roles. Thanks for reading and saying hello! xo, KJ

  6. Onehundredandseven Yearoldvirgin August 12, 2011 at 7:47 pm #

    Once again your words bring me to tears. Your light shines so brightly, sweet girl. And I am rendered useless under the enormity of what you have shared here tonight. Love you muchly<3

    • KJ August 20, 2011 at 6:49 pm #

      Dearest 107/A, I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve your generosity and constant support, but I am so unbelievably grateful. Thank you for your kind words and your Facebook shout outs…I’m stunned. And a little fangirly–you do, after all, produce words that continue to inspire and stun ME. You truly were a silver lining in a very, very dark and stormy moment last week. Thank YOU. Much love your way. Always, K

  7. ladybug August 12, 2011 at 1:22 pm #

    I love that you always say what I think, but SO MUCH MORE ELOQUENTLY. *sigh*

    Those writing endeavours you’re pursuing? I would read anything you’d right. Just putting it out there.

    Kristen is….everything. I can’t even articulate right now. But I think what I loved the most was the screentest. I could hear her talk forever and never get tired of it. I love the metaphors she comes up with, I love that she’s so much less afraid now to expose her true feelings. I love her. Yes, tha’s it.

    The W shoot is…WHOA sexy-old-Hollywood-Kristen!!! I think I LOVE it. But I need to see it in my hands before I come up with my coherent thoughts on it.

    Now, about that following bliss thing. I’m trying! So hard… I refuse to settle. I work a “settlish” job right now, because a girl has to earn a living doing something right? My current job includes a major component of contact with audiences (which is a setting for my major goal, but I won’t go through all of that here ’cause that´s a hell of a long story and this is already a novel), I really, really want to pursue so much more. But you’re right. It’s scary, and daunting and sometimes I can’t really see how I’m going to get there. BUT OH I WILL DIE TRYING!!! (Not really, I’m not brave enough for that.)

    Anyway, that’s that, I might have a couple of new things coming up in the Fall, and am desperately searching for a voluteering project that I can incorporate into my messy work schedule.

    So, once again, I’m sorry for the lenght of this. Apparently making short comments is not in my genes. I have no idea how I’ve been surviving on Twitter…

    Have a nice trip! See you at the end of the month! xoxo

    • KJ August 20, 2011 at 6:47 pm #

      Hello my Beloved girl, I simply ADORE your comments. If you were to ever post a comment less than 500 words I’d truly be worried. I hope you can get your paws on a copy of W soon. If not, I know CC is doing a giveaway of some issues, and it looks like I might be as well if a couple extra copies wander my way as I suspect they will. I too found the screentest to be most refreshing and revealing of all. I am mesmerized by it. I know you’re trying to pursue your bliss, and what is most admirable is that you are aware of your journey and refuse to settle. And I don’t think you’re selfish at all for trying to pay your bills while concurrently planning to follow Your Life’s Work. It truly is about balance and the very basic needs must be met before we can float off. You’re doing just fine, my friend. Looking forward to hearing your plans. xoxo, K

  8. bananot August 12, 2011 at 10:05 am #

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for always summing up every single emotion that we feel but cannot really put it into words so beautifully. Thank you!!! ♥

    • KJ August 20, 2011 at 6:42 pm #

      you’re always so sweet, my dear. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for moving along with me and our fellow OTHERS in this celebration of courage and community! xx

  9. DeeDreamer August 12, 2011 at 4:59 am #

    Dearest KJ – Once again you’ve captured the excitement and well, LOVE, I felt seeing both the EW and W spreads yesterday. It’s often so hard to explain to others why these things seem to buoy me in such a profound way, but you always capture the emotions perfectly. Your words give life to the little bubbles of happiness, confidence, faith and satisfaction that burst inside of me when we get to see Kristen (and especially her with her beau) like this. So thank you, thank you, for always bringing meaning to this fangirl.

    And I truly, truly believe that if we’re not scared shitless about our life’s goals, they’re not worth having. Having just officially embarked on my own new adventure twelve days ago, I feel simultaneously terrified and electrified. Inspired and anxious. Convinced I’ll be a failure at the same time I’m convinced I’ve got just as much of a shot as anyone else. This dichotomy of emotion is bizarre and confusing, but DAMN if it doesn’t feel good to be taking actual steps in making a dream come true.

    Thank you, my sister in love and light. Sending you all kinds of big hugs and love!!

    xoxo ~Dee

    • KJ August 20, 2011 at 6:41 pm #

      *clapping and gently nudging Dee forward* Keep going, sweet girl, keep going! Quaking and trembling along with you as we embark on new journeys that have the capacity to propel us or paralyze us…But we’re pushing forward still. We can do this. We’ll take cues from our Other Queen. Much love and light. Yours, K

  10. Mel452 August 11, 2011 at 9:01 pm #

    *sigh* I adore you darl, my lil inspiration for a lot.

    Love how you describe “channeling” fear and using it and becoming empowered by it rather then letting it beat you up.

    And yes…doesn’t Kristen just blow you away with W, the interview, the photos? OMGosh! That is all I can say. I seriously need to invest in a thesaurus and keep the word BEAUTIFUL highlighted and all its other synonmyms & antonyms…and plonk a photo of Kristen there…am speechless otherwise.

    Forever will love this quote: “I felt like I could shoot up into the night sky and every pore of my body would shoot light.” Love!

    Doesn’t she sound like a Beat Gen poet? Love! *sigh*

    Good luck and enjoy your next adventures in life…and party hard back home. 🙂

    And am so honoured to be part of your Aussie Posse darl. ❤ xx

    • KJ August 20, 2011 at 6:38 pm #

      I adore you too my Darl. I’ve found there is a choice: let the fear over run me, or utilize the energy to produce. The W photos were stunning to me for so many reasons I’m still unable to articulate. But Ill say the video was my favorite of it all. So revealing and refreshing. She DOES sound like our beloved Beat Gen poets!! You are the loveliest, Dar. xx

  11. theraingirl4 August 11, 2011 at 8:27 pm #

    Thank you for your beautiful, poetic ramblings as well as the birthday love 🙂 Have a lovely, safe trip and hurry back to us!

    • KJ August 20, 2011 at 6:36 pm #

      Oh sweet girl the ramblings will always be…I should thank YOU for continuing to read them! Hope you had a lovely birthday and thanks for the kind wishes. I plan to be posting again before the month’s over. xx
