"The thing about addiction is, it never ends well. Because eventually, whatever it is that was getting us high, stops feeling good, and starts to hurt. Still, they say you don't kick the habit until you hit rock bottom. But how do you know when you are there? Because no matter how badly a thing is hurting us, sometimes, letting it go hurts even worse."

"Always there everytime you need me. It ain't love, it's just like nicotine. You're addicted to a feeling you can only get from me and your cigarettes."

Miranda Lambert, Me and Your Cigarettes
“Ladies, let me give you some advice. You can throw all your stupid chick-lit, self-help, why-doesn’t-he-love-me books out, because this is all you need to know: Men will treat you the way you let them. There is no such thing as “deserving” respect; you get what you demand from people... If you demand respect, he will either respect you or he won’t associate with you. It really is that simple."

*My best friend, Sarah Ellen, has the coolest life ever. I want to post all of her pictures (and I'm getting close) but here are a few of her gorgeous shots. Love her.

You had me at "Love & Other Drugs"

"This isn't about connection for you. This isn't even about sex for you. This is about finding an hour or two of relief from the pain of being you. And that's fine with me because all I want is the exact same thing."

*I can't wait to see this movie... The title alone had me at hello. Anne Hathaway isn't my favorite, but I won't mind staring at Jake Gyllenhaal for 2 hours. See you Nov. 24, Jake.

"This girl wasn't damaged, her jeans were just ripped."

"Stop living someone else's song and write your own."

*Words of wisdom from one of the Loves of my Life, Whitney Elise. Despite my affinity for song lyrics and quotes, I have to admit, she makes a valid point.
"Bring us back together. Back to a place of forgiveness, and love, and in understanding that what we shared was all the magic we could ever need."
-Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

"I know my heart will never be the same, but I'm telling myself I'll be okay. And even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger."
