UHM GUYS I JUST PRINTED MY POEMS INTO A BOOK AND IM DYING // help its so pretty and wow its mine k


I don't even know what to say at this moment. the surprise is here - FINALLY. like *is squealing so much right now*  it's my poems. in book form. published. and mine. ACK

BUT REALLY GUYS LOOK AT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and the best part? This is my test book...like..aka this means I'm working on opening it available to purchase to my closest friends + all you amazing blog readers YES I MEAN IT.

*is still hyperventilating* okay - here, let me give you the back story on this beautiful thing. I decided I wanted to print all my poems into a book bc GEESH HOW COOL RIGHT. So, with the amazing help of Sare, we formatted all my poems from Twilight to Dawn into a manuscript and kinda just left it for like a month? We ran out of time to work on the cover...

then one night we literally just started to do it and had ordered it in like 3 hours flat. LEGIT. I was dyyyiiinngg bc wow so exciting. Bree and Sarah designed the cover AREN'T THEY MAJESTIC HUMAN BEINGS?! you can't have them, nope - they're mine. 



The book is 152 pages -- that's like a lot of my poems *squeals again* All the photos are inside - just like on my blog. PLUS my "to dance" short story is in the way back and omw ITS SO CUUUUTE.

also *smirks* there are like a few poems you guys have never seen before hidden in the book xD

basically I adore it. and last night I dropped it and picked it up and hugged it cuz wow how could I do that? #sorryprettybook

also we went to goodwill today and omw i found some adorable stuff plus the power is back annnndddd we are supposed to get like 5 inches of snow or something waht. 



oh and you guys? I love all of you amazing people.... I read through and replied to each and every single comment you all left on "why you follow my blog". *sobs* let me just tell you, I'll try to keep it up... you guys are THE BEST K. just remember that on this Monday morning *waves to go catch some sleep cuz wow it wasn't nice to steal that from me yesterday mr. clock*


WOULD YOU BUY MY BOOK?
DO YOU FOLLOW MY POETRY BLOG??

p.s much love and ice cream and chocolate for my sisters. they did so much for me + sarah took these photos like wow (also this post is scheduled the evening before jsyk)
