It's a girl!

 
We've actually known for a few weeks but they also found some complications at that appointment so we've delayed in announcing it to everyone. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers, lovely readers :)

Currentlay :)

I'm back in the land of the living guys! Sorry for that unannounced hiatus. Being 5 months pregnant and moving your home and increasing your hours at work can get the best of your blogging inspiration, I've found. Thought I'd kick off being back with this "Currently" post that has been circulating through the blogosphere. 

Loving: Feeling like a human again! More energy, less vomiting makes Grace a happy girl!


Reading: Blue Like Jazz as suggested by Mrs. Heather Turpin :) It's incredible so far. So honest and well written.



Watching: All of our old DVDs that we stopped watching after we got Netflix! My Fair Lady, Pride and Prejudice, Bridesmaids, I've missed you! Having no internet since we moved has been good for some things :P

Thinking about: Home decor, always. We are compltely starting over from scratch with this new place so we can redo the decor together as a team :) It's going amazing so far, just slooww. Can you get a loan for furniture? Haha.



Anticipating: Finding out what our little banana sized baby is, girl or boy, this Monday!! :D I can't even tell you how excited we are for this, guys. Legit, over the moon.

Listening to:


Working on: Unpacking, redecorating, maintaining a cleaning schedule this time around, and getting the baby's room ready. So much to do and so little time!

Wishing: I could speed up time and slow it down all at once. We're sososo excited to meet this little baby and finally get to hold it and smooch it all over, but I'm also terrified and want to keep it safe inside my belly forever! haha. Creepy mom alert.
What are you currently doing?

I hope you've all been splendid :)

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth

Fresh Starts

I feel like, as readers and writers of blogs, and members of the pinterest generation, there are a few things we couldn't forget if we tried.
Things like: Do what you love. Make time for your passions. Follow your heart.


But all too often, we forget the practical ways of implementing these ideals in our daily lives. I know I do. I'm not sure if it's because of the baby and exhaustion that comes with it or not, but I've been crazy blah lately. I've dropped all of my hobbies, and rarely spend my free time doing anything but sleeping and eating. Calvin keeps me peppy, but when he's gone I just fall apart. It sounds pathetic because it is. I used to have a me to fall back on. A spirited, interesting, fun lady to come home to when Calvin was out doing karate or his newest obsession, tricking. Anymore I just kind of feel like a grumpy loser. I kind of hate it.

But, we're moving into a new place next month, and we're super stoked about it. They have a pool, workout room, picnic area, grills, tennis court, etc. I'm so happy! I really hope it will be a good place for us, and a fresh new start for baby and me. It's a little bit of a downgrade size-wise, but the baby's room will be right next to ours (which is the main reason we needed to move) and it will be a clean start for us. Something about me- I LOVE fresh starts. When my siblings grumbled and complained about us moving to another city or house, I was bouncing with excitement. I love being able to start fresh and have a whole array of possibilities at your fingertips. We've been where we live now for around three years and it's just getting stale.

On to bigger, better and brighter things, I hope. I hope the same for you too :)
If things are getting stagnant, I hope you find a way to change them. If something's off track, I hope you find a way to right it.

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.

Fire

Hey guys! Just a quick update- I'm sure most of you have heard about all the fires going on in our pretty little state of CO so I wanted to let you know we're doing okay! The evacuations are slowly getting closer to where we are, but no matter what we'll be safe. If you're a prayin guy or gal, please do so for everyone who has lost their homes already. It's incredibly tragic to lose your belongings, but my prayer is that they'll be united in love and well taken care of by the rest of the community in their time of need. Thankfully no one has lost their lives yet, I just pray everyone is safe and evacuates when they're told to, and these brave awesome firemen and women can hang tough and keep fighting for us. We're so so thankful.


If you haven't heard about the fire, you can read about it here.


All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.

Unisex baby things wishlist!

Since we won't know the baby's gender for another 4- 8 (!) weeks, but I still love putting together wishlists and organizing my thoughts, I thought I'd do a unisex version. So many cute things! :D

A Letter From Past Me

Around a year ago, I stumbled upon a website called Future Me which allows you to write a letter to your future self, set the date you want it delivered and then, basically forget about it. I just got my letter from a one year younger Grace, and I thought I'd share it with you guys.

Dear FutureMe,
I hope things with Yeti have been going well.
If you guys have been fighting or not getting along well for any reason, remember:

-All the times he's called you beautiful
-His sweet sweet wedding vows.
-How happy you were on your wedding day
-The roses and candles at the Melting Pot for your 6 month
-You and him are different. Your love is genuine and expansive and true. It's the closest to unconditional as it can get between two people. You love him, madly. His eyes and the way he talks out of one side of his mouth when he's excited about something and the way he holds you when you sleep. You LOVE him. Work out your differences, its so worth it.

I hope everything else is going well too. I hope you remember who you are. Never forget it. You better be maintaining your blog too, otherwise past you will be mad. I hope you've done some reading and writing and maybe that open mic thing we heard about. I hope you're taking good care of vikki.
(she was staying with us at the time.)

Are you pregnant? I kind of hope so :P
Just remember, everything will work out. Don't stress, life is too short to worry it away. Focus on the positive, and fight hard to keep it that way. Have a beautiful life.

You too, friends.
All the best,
Grace Elizabeth
(and our little plum!)

Papa's Day!

Hey friends, how was your weekend?
Ours was pretty swell :) We had a picnic at our favorite park with the whole family on Sunday to celebrate Father's day, and it was a blast. We've been going to that same park for special events ever since I can remember.



And even now, when the swing set is no longer a hulking behemoth, and the picnic tables have more scratches than paint, I still love it. It's scratchy and hot and teaming with insects (I got bit by a spider!) but it's still such a special place. It smells exactly the same, like family outings and BBq's, 4th of July's and birthdays.


It was all around a super day. (Which made for a not-super night of dehydration and throwing up, but that's another story :P) I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

If Father's Day isn't so sweet for you, whether it be because of a death or not being able to be a Papa yourself, I want to remind you today that you are loved by a Father greater than the universe, and your life is in his hands. <3

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth

Artsy Update

Oh guys, I am the worst blogger, right? :(


I pinky swear promise I will get back on track once I start feeling better. This bebe is making me sick mostly all the time, and exhausted literally all the time. We love the little goob so much though! :D


And all this downtime has had it's advantages- one is an amazing sweet hubby who helps me with everything I need, and two is I've had some time to work on my arts! :))




I'll try my very best to update more often, guys :)
Hope you have a great day!

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.
(And our little lime!)

Awkward Stage :P

Hey lovelies, how ya been?
I've been feeling mostly terrible the past few days, with morning sickness and a crazy sore throat knocking at my door, but I'm hanging in there! All worth it for our little smooshy human :))

Since I've been under the weather lately, I haven't had a whole lot of creativity going and as such I only have a couple photos to share: an updated pic of yours truly, and one of our prune! :P

I'm attempting to grow my hair out some again, probably to my shoulders and keep it there. It's in an awkward mullety stage, which matches my awkward slightly chubby baby bump that is happening haha XD Well, check you later- have a great day! Say a little prayer for us <3

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth
(and Prune!)

Guys, it's official.

The big 2-1.
While, I can't go out partyin hard, a stay at home, eating left over cake, playing with my new ukelele birthday present, smoochin on my Yeti day sounds pretty great.

Have a great day, friends! I'll have a slice of cake for you :)

All the best,

P.S. We have our official pre-natal appt. tomorrow. Thoughts and prayers would be so appreciated <3

A Hard Day's Night

Sorry I haven't had much to say lately, friends. It's been due to two seperate but related things: feeling physically cruddy from the bebe situation, and not being able to drink coffee because of the bebe situation. :(
I feel like maybe 90% of this blog was written by a caffeinated Grace. Without her, I just lack the inspiration and end up writing really dull rambley posts like this one. Oh bother.
And now I'm quoting Winne the Pooh. This has gone downhill.

*deepbreath*
Okay, let me try to revive this. Here's a cute picture I drew of Yeti and the Vamp as bebes:

Also, my 21st birthday is in a few days and I'm pretty excited. (mostly because I know what my present is and I waannnt itt.) Plus its a nice chance to hang out with the fam, and eat good foods and stuff. Going kind of low key this year. It's so crazy to think that by this time next year we'll have a little person to take care of. So scary and exciting!

I don't want to complain and make it seem like I'm not grateful for the amazing gift we've been given, so I'll try to keep the gripeing to a minimum. I've just never dealt with being sick very well before XD Guess It's time to get tough, folks.

How has your week been?

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth
(and our little kumquat!)

21.5.12

What the what? :D

Hey guys, sorry for that unexpected blogger vacation, but I promise it was for a good reason!


For those of you that don't follow me on Instagram (yetiandthevamp) I thought I share the news here too! We're at the baby business again XD This time everything looks good and healthy, we're praying hard it stays that way. We even saw the teeny rapid heart beat!

I amazingly got to take last week off of work completely and get some much needed rest, but I'm back at it this week, and back to blogging you can be sure :)

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth

Top 5 fashion Rules

I read an article on Thought Catalog the other day, called the 5 Fashion Rules You'll Ever Need to Know. While I thought some of them were accurate, most weren't super applicable to me, and it got me thinking about what I would consider my top 5 fashion rules!
So here goes:

Number 1: Fit Over Fashion
A flattering fit always reins supreme over a fashionable item. I went into a Target the other day and tried on maybe 5 pairs of the same bright teal skinny jeans in various sizes. Each one of them fit wrong in some area and just generally whaled me out. So guess what? Even though colored jeans are the 'trend' and I reallyreallyreally wanted them, I put them back! The most fashionable trend in the world will still look horrendous on you if the fit is wrong. This is a big one for me, because for yeeaarrs I would ignore this rule and feel uncomfortable and waste tons of money on things I would only wear once.


Number 2: Trend Within Reason
This is along the same lines. Trends are fun. Trust me, I've been through my fair share of them. Some of them stick, like fitted jeans, polka dots, flats. I chose to follow these because I feel they are flattering on my body type, not just to fit in! But the highwaisted denim shorts, crop tops, and religiously satirical jewelry trends are just not for me and that's okay :) Find what you like the best and carve out your own style instead of being pulled every which way by the current trends and pinterest boards! 

Number 3: Recycle and Restyle
This is probably the rule I follow the very least. I love getting new things and amping up my wardrobe when it's financially viable, but something I've noticed a lot of bloggers do that I really admire is to recycle and restyle staple pieces to get new, interesting, and affordable outfits! By just putting in a little bit more effort and creativity, you can save some cash, and still feel fresh and great every day. A fantastic post on this is this one by Delightfully Tacky. She's just the best at layering, pattern mixing, and wardrobe remixing! (Plus she's beautiful, sweet, and hers was very first blog I ever began following!)


Number 4: Know thyself.
The biggest rule I follow on a day to day basis, is just to be myself. I know what I like, what looks good on my body type, and what image I want to portray when I get dressed in the morning. Knowing who you are and what you want to exude is a pretty huge part of your personal style and one that I think gets overlooked too often. If that hi-low dress in navajo print is just not you, then guess what? You don't have to wear it. You don't have to try to make it work with your style if it just doesn't fit! I'm all about expanding and trying new things, but if you try them and just get a wonky vibe about it, or feel you aren't being true to yourself when you're wearing it, then do yourself and your personal identity a favor and put it back on the rack!

Personally, I like clothing with a little edge, a little weird, and a little retro. Combine those and I'm in heaven. Sweet dresses, leather jackets, bright clogs, statement jewelry. I'm not a huge fan of clothing that's too clingy, too bright, or too trendy.

But at the end of the day, clothing ain't no thang, it's the smile and heart behind it that matters and that's the most important 'rule' to remember. We're people, beautiful people, and all deserve equal respect no matter our appearance.


Have a beautiful day.
All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.

Soilmates

Hey friends! I just wanted to give a quick update on My Goodsie shop, Mason Jar Market, and a peek of a sweet new card I designed that has just been posted!


Some of you may have already known about this little shop I run, but if not here she is! Right now I only have digital card downloads posted, but I'd like to expand it to vintage wares and closet treasures in the near future! :D I posted 5 or so new cards in the shop today, so please check them out! Only $2.00 and you'll get an email with the card of your choice, in any format you need!

Annddd *drumroll* here's the brand new, fresh off the press card I designed!

Sorry for the ugly watermark, but why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free as they say :(

A little creepy and gross, but too cute to resist drawing XD It came as a result of a texting mishap, where soilmates was typed instead of soulmates and here it is! :D

Hope you like! Have a great Friday <3

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.

A Confession: Hates

If I've been putting on the facade of being a normal, functioning adult let this post clarify it for you :)

I hate balsalmic vinagrette. It tastes like shoe juice.


I hate meeting new people. It makes me terribly nervous.


I hate unsweetened coffee.


I hate the laundry, dishes, and making the bed. (My poor husband.)


I hate the progression of time, and often worry myself sick about getting old.


I hate when people start internet arguments, and just kind of the state of the internet in general.


I hate the doorbell. It's startling, and new people may be on the other side of the door.


Likewise, I hate answering the phone. Talking on the phone in general is pretty painful.

There are so many more >_<

What seemingly normal things do you hate?

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.

Clogs, yo, clogs.

They finally arrived! :D Last Thursday I received a little box covered in Swedish stamps and knew, this was the moment: my Ugglebo Clogs were home!! :D


I can't tell you how smitten I am with them. I've already worked them into 3 of 4 outfits since I got the beauties! I had no idea wooden shoes could be SO comfortable! I did clonk a little at first but now that I'm used to walking in them, they're seriously a dream. I can't wait to get more colors!

This post was not sponsored by Ugglebo in any way. I just wanted to share an amazing company with my amazing readers :)

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.

Design Nerd

This might be a little bit nerdy of me, but I wanted to share the poster design for an event at my school that I designed!


I was pretty happy with it XD Also please peep my lost post, I knew I should have posted it on Monday morning instead of getting antsy and posting late saturday night >_<

All the best, lovelies!

Alive: A Vlog

For years when I was younger, I maintained a vlog series on Youtube called Nerdy Vlogs. It was where I shared stories I wrote, and literature I admired. It's been quite some time since I posted there; I abandoned it for this blog, which I've done way better at updating regularly :) 
Well, tonight I recorded another nerdy vlog of a short story I wrote, and wanted to share. Please watch :)


P.S. Sorry for the poor webcam quality, annoying time stamp, and editing jumps!

Hey there

lovely readers, lets catch up :)


This past week has been a great one. Firstly, we finally got our bedroom (mostly) finished. It's been this same general setup for a while now, but we just put the finishing touches on everything. After Calvin and I got married we never really made any changes to the decor until now. So we mooshed all of our likes together, and come up with this. We're pretty pleased :) (better quality photos to come later heh)



The bottom left picture was from Easter. I love that dress :P The bottom right is of some sparkly star hair pins I made, inspired by the lovely Elsie :P


Last Saturday, my loverly SIL, Vikki, stayed over to do some prooomm shoping. We woke early that morning to some tasty coffee and has an awesome hike around Garden of the Gods (and then nearly died of exhaustion lol).


So pretty :)

Of course other things happened; sweet nights, dates, arguments, rainstorms..but this is all I got photos of heh. How was your week? I hope it was a good one, or at least, an interesting one :)


All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.

Ugglebo Love

Happy Tuesday, readers! I just wanted to quickly share with you guys a drop-dead amazing company I've had the pleasure of interacting with recently: 


"Ugglebo means “owl’s nest” in Swedish. The owl is a universal symbol for wisdom, and the nest is a symbol of nurturing and growth. We at Ugglebo truly cherish these values and we strive to do our very best to share them with children in need. That's why we at Ugglebo donate 5% of our annual profits to the nurturing, growth and passing of wisdom to disadvantaged children through education. We can’t really think of a name or logo that could mean so much to us as our little owl does."

From their beautiful handmade wooden clogs (mine are in the mail- woohoo! :D) to their fantastic, efficient and kind customer service, I've just been totally blown away! Plus, their name means Owl's nest?? Yes please! :D Ever since seeing Elsie's awesome styling of bright, retro clogs, I've been dying for a pair of my own. Then I read The Velvet Bird's blog post about Ugglebo and fell in love! Be sure to read her post to
find out more about the company's environmentally friendly practices and safety conditions. I specifically adore the Milans (pictured left) with their sweet little scallops and low heel height. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any of the colors I wanted in my size. I emailed the company asking for an update when they restocked and received a response super quickly afterwards saying that they didn't know when my size would be in stock 

from their factory in Sweden but to keep checking back with them. Then lo and behold, a few days later I received another email saying they dug up a pair of the color I loved in my size! So dang considerate! They even held them for me when I couldn't buy them right away. An update review will be coming once I actually receive my clogs, but I'm sure if they are half as marvelous as their customer service and business practices, I will be so happy!



This post was not sponsored by Ugglebo in any way. I just wanted to share an amazing company with my amazing readers :)

All the best lovely readers,
Grace Elizabeth.

Safe and Sound


Sometimes, after a long day, all you need is a nice nap on a Yeti's chest to be right as rain again.

I hope you have someone whose arms you know you're safe in,
and if not I hope you find them. <3

Have a beautiful day,
Grace Elizabeth.

Doodle Date

Yesterday, we took advantage of spring break from my class and had a picnic at the park! It was super windy but still lots of fun :) We fed the geese, walked around the lake holding hands, and just generally had a super sweet afternoon. No better company for me that this Yeti <3




Hahah. Picture overload, I know. But I hope it was enjoyable at least :P

All the best lovely readers,
Grace Elizabeth,


20.3.12

Oh hey there, blog.

I feel like super poop for taking so long to post. And I feel like poop for complaining about it too, so I'll just leave it at that. 


On to happier things :) :




1. I discovered, spent an arm and a leg on, and read entirely this book: Why We Broke Up written by Daniel Handler a.k.a. Lemony Snicket :P and Illustrated by Maira Kalman. It's wonderful. It encompassed so much of my feelings at the high school age, has beautiful illustrations every chapter, and is written in the same style as my brain thinks. Totally wonderful.


2. We played with the ferrets for a while and tuckered them out. Came back a while later and found them snuggling in the hammock :DD *eternal ferret adoration*


3. Found the tastiest snack ever ever.


4. We got Calvin's karate room set up downstairs! It's right next to my beautiful spare bedroom/craft room thing so we can be close while still doin our own thing sometimes. Plus I find it really fun to play in too :P


5. I just started having to do teeny tiny little pigtails in my hair because it's growing out into a baby mullet XD And yes, I'm gonna grow it a little while again. Probably keep it around shoulder length this time. I like to mix it up :)


6. Made the awesomest soup ever. We really enjoy soup around here :P This one is organic potato, green beans, and rotisserie chicken with cheesy bread. So yummy!


7. Broke in the new karate room with a little his and her's boxing match on Saturday :D


8. My lovely Momma with a picture I drew of my lovely Momma! <3


9. We looked at this house for sale last weekend as well! Like, set up a time with a realtor, discussed lending options legitly looked at it. Adult status yo. And isn't she dreamy?? The scallops are to die for! *fingers crossed*


So, that was my week. How was yours lovely people? Missed ya'll!

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.

The house on Archer Avenue

Hey guys, so sorry for the lack of posts these past couple of weeks! School,....grr. I tell ya. We took these pictures a few days ago and have been meaning to get a post written about them. I took them to showcase this cute little coffee necklace I made! As far as the outfit goes, I recently watched one of my all-time favorite movies The Royal Tenenbaums, and was inspired by Margot's amazing style XD If you haven't seen that movie, seriously go watch it right this minute. It is amazeballs.
I'm thinking I might try to sell a few pieces of handmade jewelry in my Etsy or Goodsie shop soon. I only have digital card downloads listed on my goodsie right now: Mason Jar Market But I'd love if you checked it out :)) The card downloads are only $2 :D

I don't know about where you are, but the weather here in Colorado has been completely beautiful! I love Spring so hard. Crisp cool air plus sunshine, occasional snow, and green bloomin' plants? Yes please! :D
Sorry for the picture overload there, we were having fun! :D 
Well, have a great one ladies and gents, and think of me...slowly crumpling and blowing away in the breeze from an abundance of work and school pressure :P JK! I can do anything good. 
Bonus points if you get that Youtube reference.

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.

Peculiar

Hey everyone! How was your week? Mine was a little on the blah side because I came down with a weird flu thing for a few days, 
which also happened to coincide with a big snow storm:




and just the standard work and school stresses, but it had some lovely moments for sure :)) One of them being the discovery of this amazing book!


"A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And a strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children."

Don't let the 'Young Adult' genre fool you, it is scary and exciting and like...magical? Haha XD I feel like such a nerd but I love getting swept up in the magic of fantasy books. I cannot wait for the Spring of 2013 for the sequel to come out! Read more about it here!

On top of that, we've been having some completely lovely weather, and ever got a chance to sit out sit and soak up some sun (while Calvin was silly and played around practicing ninja moves XD)




Bare legs :D So happy! And then we (of course) saw the Lorax :D 




Also found this super cool massive bronze sculpture at church that I kind of love, and I baked some chocolate bottomed macaroons using this recipe by Lesley Jean and adding chocolate! :D So tasty!


How about your week? I hope it was lovely and lacking in flu heh.


All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.

Wu is Me

In the midst of the Jason Wu for Target craze, or Wunami if you will, I saw this gorgeous and slightly weird dress hanging. I ran up and it was my size, the last one. I immediately purchased it of course, but once I got home and tried it on I realized it was not super flattering on my short and stubby with boyish hair frame. 


But alas, a slave to fashion, I tried every combination of belts and tights and shoes until I found this one. Still slightly conjures images of bowling shirts and cowboys, but I kind of like its weirdness :)

And at the end of the day, whatevs.
Hope you've been well, awesome lovely readers of this blog.
I'd love to hear from you, if you have time.

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.

Gumroad

Hey all! After being introduced to the awesome utility Gumroad (an online marketplace that directly connects the buyer to the seller, no Paypal, Ebay, etc involved. Just put in your credit card info and download!) about a week ago, I've been considering selling some digital art I've made but I wasn't sure if there would be any interest. 

So I thought I'd ask you guys, do you think you'd be interested in buying a digital copy of one of the many cards I've made over the years? It would only be the more generally worded ones of course (unless you also have a husband named Calvin, haha) and they'd only be roughly 2-3$!! Examples below :D

There are super sweet ones, silly ones, cards for friends who are away, loved ones who need cheering up, or reminders of your love. A neat way to convey your feelings and give the gift of handmade art all in one!

Calvin is cool with it, by the way haha. He thinks it would be neat to profit a little from all of the countless hours I've put into these cards for him XD 
(Purchasing would give you only the rights to print and give the card, not sell for profit, or give you any rights to the images to be reworked, or redistributed in any way.)

If you wouldn't want to purchase from Gumroad, I may consider listing them in my Etsy shop. I just love the simplicity and hassle free approach Gumroad takes! And thanks for the feedback peeps! Have an awesome day! :D

All the best,
Grace Elizabeth.

Cinema Saturday

Hey everyone :) Just wanted to share our lovely day with ya! 
Lately I've been completely incapable of sleeping in late, so I woke up around 8:00 and annoyed Calvin :P He never gets up when I do this but I do it anyway haha. Eventually I got up and made a boss breakfast of biscuits, scrambled eggs with cheese and chives, coffee and hot cocoa and organic grapefruit with sugar :P Plus check out our little vintage seasoning men below! I love those guys heh :D


Then we nommed it in bed and watched cartoons :P Well, Bleach, but it's animated so that counts haha. Afterwards, we snuggled a bunch and randomly fell back asleep for like 5 hours XD When we finally got up we decided to go see a movie using the Cinemark gift card I got from my brothers lovely girlfriend. I wore a new Target chevron printed dress with crazy tights and Indian sandals haha. Calvin wore an anchor t-shirt I got him for Valentine's that happened to match my dress awesomely :) And looked so darn handsome in it might I add! :D If you can't tell, I'm having so much fun taking pictures with a legit camera again! Finally I can post with more than Instagram photos haha!


Then we got a super tasty lunch at Panera Bread, snapped some quick extremely windy pictures, and saw Ghostrider 2. Which was weird and very unlike the first, but still good. It's the hand holding and snuggling and the 'laughing at the same parts' that matters most anyways.


So there you go. Dates don't have to be magical to be magical :P
We see movies all the time, but I really freaking love each one! It's awesome having a best friend to see them with, whom you can also smoosh your face on XD

I hope you had a great sunny Saturday, too.
I hope someone made you smile and know you're not alone.

All the best,
