Perfect kiss?

You know how every climactic kiss in the movies seems to be--perfect? Beautiful, wonderful, wish-it-were-you kind of kiss? My sisters and I were discussing cinematic kisses the other day, and we have decided the most romantic, beautiful kiss from our generation of movies, is from Never Been Kissed. I just envy the beauty, the sincerity,--and honestly, the audience. It's just..adorable.

But what do you think?
If you could jump into any movie for the final kiss...which one would it be?

p.s. Julia Ormond and Harrison Ford's kiss on the Paris Bridge in Sabrina is pretty fantastic, too.

His hello was the end of her endings
Her laugh was their first step down the aisle
His hand would be hers to hold forever
His forever was as simple as her smile
He said she was what was missing
She said instantly she knew
She was a question to be answered
And his answer was “I do”

For me this Valentine's Day is a special one. My first as a Mrs. with someone to really call mine. I'm so exicted and fully intend to get carried away with the festivities. I always love Valentines because I love pink and I love LOVE, its my kind of holiday. What I really love about it is the fact is a celebration of all the people you care about, not just your mom on mother's day. It's the chance to show the ones you love that you care. I'm a big fan of crafts and notes as a medium for showing affection and appreciation. Let's share ideas here...
I'll be making numerous V-day related posts I'm sure, but it's not that far away so let this post set the mood.

To be like Her

There are so many women in this world who are amazing. I find my that my thoughts are often a list of people I want to be like when I grow up. Well, one of those fabulous women passed away yesterday. I thought you all might be inspired, just as I was, when I first heard her story.

Hope you enjoy. Just click HERE.

I was in Albertsons yesterday listening to the girl in front of me talking to the lady working behind the register about these amazing websites!  I couldn't help but join the conversations. ENJOY LADIES!

Dear Ladies,

My husband is turning 22 in about 3 weeks and I have NO idea what to get him! Everything I thought of he got for Christmas (which is why I am determined NOT to have my children in December or January).

I know you are all sophisticated and wonderful (even if I have never met you), therefore I know your opinions will be equally sophisticated and wonderful.

So...any suggestions would be immensely appreciated!

Lots of love,
