Sometimes, you just need something to brighten up your day whenever your town is experiencing torrential rain and flood watches.
Like some half off pink tulips from Walmart (tulips, despite what Meg Ryan says, are actually the friendliest flowers)
Or some Fiestaware daydreams (after lingering ten minutes in front of the Fiesta display, the lady at Macy's asked me if I needed any help -- I was too embarrassed to tell her I just liked looking at all of the bright, yummy looking dishes)
We have been toying around with various ideas for wedding reception centerpieces, and I seriously do not know where our creative process would be without my friend Maggie. She has been sending me so many beautiful, book-ish centerpiece ideas.
"'Ah! Thou gifest me such hope and courage, and I haf nothing to gif back but a full heart and these empty hands,' cried the Professor, quite overcome.
Jo never, never would learn to be proper, for when he said that as they stood upon the steps, she just put both hands into his, whispering tenderly, 'Not empty now,' and stooping down, kissed her Friedrich under the umbrella."
Because, sometimes, love is about not being empty.
