I have always loved stories like the Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and, now, Twilight because the girls are ones who feel out of place with those around them, but through their own strength and determination, find their own place in the world. I grew up near the beach, but it was never my thing. I was the only one of my high school friends to venture out into the big blue world to go to college by going over 2K miles from home. What I found was the best of people, a new family, and my future. Who knew? So this is for my roots near the ocean and my love of strong girls, by using Ariel!
