And She Lived Happily Ever After......... a little house named DeluxeVille surrounded by five fabulous cats and lots of her favorite things!  I apologize in advance to all the little girls out there, no knight in shining armor in this fairy tale, just awesome little MaryDeluxe saving herself! 



Don't ever feel bad for making a decision about your own life that upsets other people.  You are not responsible for their happiness.  You're responsible for your own happiness.  Anyone who wants you to live in misery for their happiness should not be in your life to begin with.

Cuz everybody needs a big ass chalkboard in their living room!

If you don't like where you are, then change it.... are not a tree.
