maddiejayy 's Thoughts:

I think this may be my favorite shoot to date. Definitely wanted a more grungy look, so we drove around downtown until Demi spotted this location, which had obviously become a place of rest for some of the homeless people downtown. Shoes, mattresses, trash everything. But I loved the look of the broken down brick wall. This here is witness that you can find beauty, even in the ruins.
My parents got me both this gorgeous necklace and my amazing new shoes for Christmas. They spent way too much on me, way more than I deserve. I’m just grateful to have such amazing parents.

It is now the last day of 2012, and it has been one big roller coaster of a year. So many ups and downs, and as always, the highs were the highest, and the lows the lowest. I’ve learned a lot this past year, and matured an incredible amount. I’ve learned how to love and be close to someone again. I’ve learned what I know I don’t want to be. I’ve made mistakes, and now I’m working on redeeming myself. I’m working to get what I want, and learning to leave what I don’t need behind. I started school at Paul Mitchell, and I only have two and a half months left there. I’ve gained some of the best friends I could ask for, and lost those who could no longer help me along this journey called life. I am so grateful to everyone who has been a part of my life this year, no matter how small the role. My friends, my family, and Kuppajoe, have all played huge roles in making this year what it was.
For 2013, I hope to have more highs. I have a lot I need to improve on myself. I’m not setting any resolutions, because you shouldn’t need a new year as an excuse to work on bettering yourself. I must redeem myself to those I’ve let down in the past. I have a whole lot to prove, and a whole lot of love to share.

Farewell 2012, and I pray that 2013 may exceed you.
God bless you all, and have a safe and happy New Year!

Much love
Maddie
