Weddings are amazing. Every single one. I can’t hear wedding vows without remembering my wedding day and the promises Rob and I made. I am, for some reason, having a hard time finding the words for the feelings I have at a wedding. Of course it’s joy, for the couple, for their new life together, for the joys they will enjoy together, for the strength I hope they each find in each other. But there’s something more I can’t put my finger one.

I really don’t know when it started because for as long as I can remember, I have loved reading and “collecting” quotes. First, started writing them in a specially purchased, beautiful diary. Later, I moved them to Google Notebook, and now, in true Web 2.0 fashion, I’m migrating my quote collection to Diigo (slowly).
I cannot tell you how great this feels!
It happened more times than I can count while Beth and I were playing cards as teenagers, at Beth’s place during college, and even a few times in Lawrence. In fact, once time, we had to clean the water I’d spewed into the dining room, onto the table, and onto Jame’s cool picture (luckily it had a class cover!). Sometimes Rob does it to me too, and usually in the wee hours of the night when we’re silly-tired.
Nothing can brighten your day more than a little message from your honey telling you why he loves you or just that he loves you. I define “note” liberally here, and I think that’s okay. Sometimes you can get that message of love from your special one in the form of an email, maybe a [...]
Dad wore it when I was a kid and even today it makes me feel safe and secure, loved and treasured. Isn’t it amazing how powerful scents can be?
I’ve almost become addicted to it. It all started with StumbleUpon and me stumbling upon LifeOrganizers.com. I started leaving the site up in my browser at home. I’d read a few articles everyday. And it infected me. Slowly at first, but now, two years later, organizing and maintaining that organization has become a part of [...]
Ahhh… is there any safer, more comfortable place? I submit that there is not. Sometimes we sleep facing each other, just holding hands. And that is quite wonderful. But what I really truly love is when we “spoon,” with his arms wrapped around me, his breath tickling the hair on the back of my neck, [...]
I grew up in Tornado Alley, so I got to see great storms every spring. Mom had the misfortune to have experienced a terrible storm and ensuing flood in Kansas City, so she would always retreat to the basement and encourage us to do the same. But I have always loved the light show. I [...]
I’m not talking about the laugh he gives 90% of the time, but that laugh from something deeply hilarious to him. I first fell in love with it after we got married. I would be in the “office” (which was an oversized TV tray next to our bed) working while Rob watched TV in the [...]
I met Sarah long before we became friends: I registered her and Chris at Bed Bath & Beyond. Then we met again in Pummill 401 (the English Department‘s Graduate Assistants office). We kind of started being friends the first semester of grad school, but our friendship really began when we started running together in the [...]
