things that make me happy in this silly world

i’m not one of those women who doesn’t like getting flowers because “they’re just gonna die anyway” and i’d like something more permanent like jewelry.  bring on the flowers!  i’ll take yours if you don’t want them.  especially if they’re lilies, my favorite 🙂  i like getting the permanent forever stuff like jewelry, too.  but i don’t think you have to choose between them.  get both!  they represent different things to me.  jewelry and whatever else represent the long haul, the forever, the commitment, the perseverance through bad times because it’s worth it.  flowers represent the moment, this instant, that whatever the future and past holds i love you right now and it’s perfect, and it represents one of my favorite quotes: “coupleville is not a retirement community behind guarded gates. it has to be built over and over and over again.”
