from "The History of Love"

"Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering." I've been reading the novel The History of Love by Nicole Krauss.


simon, thank you

for this moment, and every other moment... i love you!

quote by John Donne

"More than kisses, letters mingle souls." John Donne

on the ceremony

"_________, I take you to be my wife/husband from this time onward, to join with you and to share all that is to come, to give and to receive, to speak and to listen, to inspire and to respond, and in all circumstances of our life together to be loyal, to you with my whole life and with my being." It just felt perfect to me and Paul loves it too. I will save my original thoughts for the marriage. And I'll say that promise out loud in a white dress and then spend forever trying to keep it.




monday note

every monday for the last year my love has written me a special note. i laid them all out on the floor tonight and read them all again. and then i realized... every monday, for the rest of my life, i'm going to wake up excited to read his note. and if we're lucky, and we live for another 50+ years, i'll be the receiver of over two thousand love notes. not bad huh? :) i think i'll keep him.

ode to friday

i love you because you are the day that simon drives me to work. (and the day he buys me a scone, too. ) i love you because a fine glass of wine or cold beer awaits me after work. i love you because you are the day that new illustrations are posted here. i love you because you remind me to turn off my iphone, shut down my laptop, and just be.

the twists of life

"I want them to know that sometimes it's because you are meant for someone else. Sometimes the letter is enough."

Would You Like Your Guy to Propose With This Ring?

Artist Jungyun Yoon makes sterling silver and 14K gold that have "secret" messages on the inside, which leave an impression on your fingers. Wouldn't this "Marry Me" engagement ring be amazing?!


magical thinking

"So I started writing down the funnier moments of the day. I keep a jar on my desk, and when the kids say something particularly worthy of recording, I grab a scrap of paper (phone bill, envelope, chopstick holder.. whatever is lying around) and I quickly jot it down. " "The jar is filling up quickly, and when I'm having a below average day, I reach in and pull out a quote.. and suddenly I'm laughing and running to hug my little comedians."

five a day

" stamped each page of the book with the date, and wrote 5 things that happened each day. I can read the pages and remember exactly how I felt, where we were walking that day, how happy I was riding the subway on my way to meet him."
