This Is What Makes Us Girls


Dreamy magazine tear outs around the house. Roses in the tub for me and no one else. Staying in Sunday nights with popcorn, a movie, and friends with bad boys broken hearts. Too many shoes to fit in the closet. Spending money we don’t have on lingerie we don’t need. Mini skirts even on days that call for boots. Buying ourselves flowers because boys don’t. Staying after hours and drinking for free because we can. Never getting too old for carousels, and walks through lost Paris everyday like it’s our first time. Behaving badly in public places. This is what makes us girls…

…and crying when things don’t go our way. This is what makes us girls…we all look for heaven but we put love first. See you on facebook, tumblr, and twitter until next time.

    Thank you for posting this. I’m having some boy problems of my own, so it’s nice to know my fellow girls know how it feels… we always put love first even though we know better! Good luck with your love life and everything else.. xx

    seriously in love with how you put all your feelings into words. Especially the one “Buying ourselves flowers because boys don’t.” and “Never getting too old for carousels”. Guess boys problems will never end for we girls. Anyway, we girls are always good in handling emotion. You did well in putting them into words. cheer up! xoxo

    Honey, your post is so true and you have an incredible gift for writing. I’m sure one day (when you don’t even think it can happen) you will meet a boy who will love you because he’s fit for you. Be sure you are an incredible, brave and beautiful girl (and soul) Haleigh ! Be confident in who you are and never forget that after the winter, there is spring !! Can’t wait to biggggggggg hug you ! Gros bisous ma chérie !! :)

    Well, at least you have some great friends! That’s so much more important than having a man… trust me! I have a man now, but all of my friends are back in Oslo and I miss them soooo much. It actually sucks big time to not having anyone to talk to.. blahhh.. would you be my friend? :p
