Favorite Quote:
"I love you with all my butt, I would say heart, but my butt is bigger."

"Worrying won't stop the bad stuff from happening; it just keeps you from enjoying the good."

They tempt you with abundant riches.
Diamonds and jewels,
Stunning under the midday sun.
Infinite amounts of money,
Never needing to worry.
Maids and servants,
Doing all the work.
All material things.
After all,
The rich can only have
The best of the best.
While I, with
Simple yet sincere gifts,
give you
My love
My heart
And everything I have.
It’s your choice to pick.
The easy life,
Or the real one.
