While the need to declare this may seem silly to most of you, it is something that I need to do on my quest to get back to my roots and get reacquainted with myself again before I turn completely into someone else. So, Amy here I am, right beside you as you declare your love for Kid Rock, I am putting my developed embarrassment aside and declaring my love for Eminem and reclaiming a shred of myself.
While I don't listen to Eminem like I used to anymore due to the regained feelings of true peace and happiness in my life, he will always hold a special love and appreciation in my heart for being a light, yes a light, during the darkest time of my life. Thank you Eminem...
...for sharing your life
...for having so much passion
...for being a lyrical genius
...for making us laugh
...for expressing the anger that we all feel, but can't express
...for relating to all of us that know what its like to feel absence from a father, craziness from a mother, and the feeling of being at rock bottom
...for helping me to remember that despite everything that is wrong in your life you still have the only thing in the world that you need, the people that you love and would do anything for
And thank you to both Kid Rock and Eminem for still being able to keep it real and say to the world, "I'm a piece of white trash and I say it proudly!"
May we all have to courage to remember where we came from and be who we really are...
So next time you see me driving down the street with my windows down and Eminem blaring from the car, just know it's me...just being me.
Enjoy the new temporary play list...I tried to keep it as clean as possible. :)

When we weren't eating, we were going on walks at Ganny's house, visiting Jerry's farm and worksites, spending time with my cousins (I'm so mad I didn't get any pictures with them!), meeting up with old friends, and visiting all of my old stomping grounds.
It was so nice going home and spending time with the people that mean so much to me. I am thankful for my step dad, Jerry, for giving us so many good memories and for loving us like his own kids. I am thankful to Ganny for taking care of us and giving us a stable environment and a place that will always be home.
