There's a song of Miss Taylor's that really stands out to me from her Fearless album.  I remember hearing "The Best Day" when Lauren and I were in the very beginning days of creating Kind Campaign.  I heard it one day and thought... wow, this issue really does affect everyone.  Here is this rising starlet, singing about coming home in tears when she was thirteen because of the things that her friends had said to her at school:

          I'm thirteen now
          And don't know how my friends
          Could be so mean

          I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys
          And we drive and drive
          Until we've found a town
          Far enough away

          And we talk and window-shop
          Until I've forgotten all their names

          I don't know who I'm gonna talk to
          Now at school
          I know I'm laughing on the car ride home with you
          Don't know how long it's gonna take to feel okay
          But I know I had the best day
          With you today

The song documents her childhood and how her she cherishes the relationship that she has with her mom.  But, it was the above lines in the song really got my attention.  It was just another reminder that every female has dealt with girl-against-girl "crime" at some point within their lives, and another reminder that WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.

T-Swift is on the brain because Lauren and I got to see the lovely lady LIVE in concert!!!  Thanks to Lauren's friend, Remy, we scored free tickets to the Taylor Swift concert here in Los Angeles!  We had a super fun girl's night singing and dancing to the tunes of T-Swift!

She put on an incredible show and we had so much fun spending time with our girlfriends!  

As school is about to start for so many of you, remember to keep this in mind: YOU ARE NOT ALONE.  Cherish your friendships, have fun with your friends, and remember that it's okay at any age to have a girl's night out to be silly, to love each other, to sing and to dance around... that's what friends are for.

What's your favorite Taylor Swift song?  What's your favorite memory with friends?  What are you most excited for the next school/work year?  We want to hear from you in the comment section below! 

Have an AMAZING day!  Give a friend a call that you haven't talked to in a while!
love love love,

  2. My favorite memory of this summer was when me and my friends all hung out at the pool all day!!!!! It wasn't a special celebration or anything, just a random day hanging out by the pool and it was just so much fun. None of us got into any fights or anything and we all just had a really good time!!

    I am most excited about seeing all of my friends when I start school next week!!!!!!!!!! I hope that we can get through the year without any fights and instead of fighting, we just hang out and have a good time with one another. : ) : ) : )

  3. My favorite memories with friends always include goofing around and being silly (what some may even call obnoxious). Many memories were had in college sitting around the sorority house doing nothing of significance but having a ball.

    One thing I will keep in mind this year is to make an effort to reach out to my friends. Once you aren't in school anymore it gets more difficult to keep in touch. So, keep those text messages and phone calls coming, everyone loves to feel loved!
