a new edition? possibly.

my mr. lemon pie...he likes this blogging thing

it is a possibility that you are going to be seeing him around these parts soon.

my lack of pictures lately is directly related to my laziness of not uploading them from the camerara. [you can ask mr. lemon pie how he feels about that. i must warn you though, it might not be very pretty or lovely. thankfully he loves me just the same even when i drive him a little bit nuts]

can we talk about this please?

i am melting right now.

melting into a puddle of happiness.

why you ask?

well, have a little read below and you'll see why.

“When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake,
and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You
have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is
inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is
not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every
second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing
every part of your body. No… don’t blush. I am telling you some truths. For that
is just being in love; which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love
itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away.”- Captain
Corelli’s Mandolin

also: i don't think it is a secret how much i love my mr. lemonpie right?

not the first and certainly not the last

did you know what i've got a thing for quotes?

i had always loved them and then about oh 7 years ago [has it really been that long?!] a dear dear friend gave me a journal with a few good quotes and told me to fill the rest with my own.

best gift ever.

and i know i have paid it forward quite a few times as well.

this one...it is being added to the collection for sure:
“If you pick me a flower, I’ll wear it in my hair. I’ll stash little notes for
you where you least expect them. I don’t have many firsts left.. but I’d like
someone who I could offer all of my lasts. We’ll make history together. I’ll
wait for you even if you’re late – and I won’t complain about it. Kindness to
cashiers, valets, waiters and maddeningly slow postal clerks who would try the
patience of Gandhi is a must. I will feel safe and most at peace in your arms.
When you’re counting aloud, I will try and mess you up. I find you magically
delicious. I will let you be right when it doesn’t really matter. I’ll giggle
when you show off and I know it’s just for me. I’ll hold your coffee while you
drive. I can build a fire without burning the house down. If you wash the car
with me – I promise to wear a white t-shirt for you. I‘ll hide around corners
and try to scare you in the middle of the night.. of course, I’ll end up scaring
myself and you’ll have to calm me down. I can change a flat tire and my own oil.
It’s the simple things you do that make me swoon the most. I love it when you
sing to me. I’ll make you mickey mouse pancakes. Sleeping in has a whole new
meaning now that we’re doing it together. I’ll cover you up and kiss your
forehead when you fall asleep watching tv. I won’t swear around your family or
make you wear silly sweaters at my family’s during Christmas. I’ll grant you
three wishes. I’ll make you laugh. I’ll stare in wonder with you at that hot
chick with the great rack. I will marvel at your strength. I’ll take care of you
when you’re sick. I give a kick ass massage. I think it’s hot when you come home
all dirty from playing or working hard. My heart will skip every time you walk
through the door. My kisses will take your breath away – seriously. I’ll giggle
if you leave your socks on in bed. My quirks and oddities have been deemed
‘adorable’ and I will love you more everyday for all of yours. I’ll hold you
when you need it. I will give you space when you need it. I will let you be you.
You’ll sleep better when I’m next to you. I’ll thank you every time you open a
door for me. I’ll never give you shit in front of your friends. I won’t ever let
you leave for work in the morning without your lunch and a passionate kiss. We
can watch your movie first. I’ll clean the house perfectly every time your mom
comes by. I like horror movies only when you’re with me and only as long as you
hold me close. I don’t litter. I love when you pull me down to sit on your lap.
I love it when you lay your head on my chest in bed. I can be ready (shower and
all) in half an hour. I’ll look cute as hell in your shirt in the morning. I can
balance a checkbook. I can never turn down a challenge. I’ll fit perfectly in
your arms. I’ll understand if you get jealous – and do my best to show you that
you have no reason. Hand-written love notes will get you laid every time. I can
totally keep a secret. I’m pretty damn funny and will do anything to make you
laugh. You will always look hot to me in the morning. I think it’s cute when you
eat off my plate. When you’re sleeping, I’ll try to stay quiet. I’ll call when I
say I will. Treat me like a woman and I’ll treat you like a man. To clarify: I’m
not looking for a fix-up project, or anything of that sort. I’m looking for a
man who quite simply adds something extraordinary and special to my life. And I
to him. A fair exchange, an amazing mind, body and soul connection and a place
to build something magnificent.”

birdcages & bobs

since i did the pre-wedding chop quite a few peeps have asked me what i am going to do with my shorter-in-the-back-a-little-longer-in-the-front bob [that i love].

my response has always been ‘i am sure we will figure it out.’

then i saw this photo:


and dropped dead because it is basically everything that i want in a hairstyle and a birdcage.

i thought i wanted a fascinator to go along along with the birdcage but now i am not so sure.

i think i like the simplicity of the just the birdcage.

what are your thoughts – fascinator or no fascinator?
