A Thank-You Letter To My Second Mom

I wish I could tell my 12-year-old self to appreciate you like I do now.

First of all, I just want to say "thank you." Thank you for your support, your endless love, and your huge heart. You are a person who has impacted my life so much, and I wish everyone had a kind heart like you.

You were always there for me when Mom number one couldn't be — from all the countless memories, carpools, family gatherings, all the stuff you involved me in and invited me to, feeling like I was a part of your family, and you letting me drive your car when I got my permit and I almost hit a pedestrian (lol), or the times you took Sarah and I shopping in Omaha.

At the time, I didn't realize how much of an impact you had and have made on my life. I wish I could tell my 12-year-old self to appreciate you like I do now. Thank you for always supporting me and loving me like I was your own.

I know this year has been a tough year for you, and I just wanted to say "thank you." Life hasn't always been easy and perfect. You were a person I could turn to for anything and everything, and I just wanted to say "thank you." When I truly needed a family to turn to — when my family was falling apart, you and your family came in with open arms — you were there for me every step of the way.

I basically lived at your house and cooked dinner with your family every night; at the time, I didn't realize that was what I needed. I feel like I haven't been as present in your life lately, because I'm in school and I've been traveling the world, but I want you to know that I'm always there for you, I support you, and I love you.

You make me so proud to be a part of your life. Your kindness, your passion, your will — it's amazing how you love people the way you do. Thank you again — I will never stop saying it. I miss you and appreciate you and love you. I hope to see you soon.

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.

33212

Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
