I threw a bridal shower – we called it a bridal brunch at my apartment this weekend for my wonderful Mindy, my roommate for last year. It was a little crazy getting ready for – and her mom was up from AZ for the weekend and was coming so I was feeling a little bit of pressure – but it turned out wonderfully. Mindy was happier than ever and I love throwing parties 🙂 Quick story – they went on their first date in October, their second date a week later…and have seen each other every day since. They have been engaged for a few months now and will be married in May. Crazy, right? My little Mindy, all grown up 🙂
As part of decorating for the shower I collected and printed out about sixty different quotes on marriage and love. There were lots and lots of good ones – A favorite that is now moving from the living room wall to my bedroom:
Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I love that. And I love love.
