// This quote...
I’m not saying that at some point love isn’t staying up until 2am phone calls or stealing kisses when you least expect it, or instantly falling for each other’s favorite songs because it is, or at least that’s what the lead up to it feels like, but real love, is so much more. It’s going out at 12am to get something to eat for your wife who can’t get out of bed, it’s listening to them as they explode with vulnerability on your living room couch talking about how they were only so young when they’re parents passed on. it’s remembering how someone likes their coffee in the morning without asking—without ever asking, it’s visiting someone in the hospital knowing the last thing you want to do is see them in that condition, it’s wanting to be with that person despite despite everything, the future, the past, and everything in between, it’s the intimate things that you don’t even realize involve such intimacy, but they do, in secret, like the pinky promises you two made behind your back, to love one another for always, in the time you thought you were in love, when you were actually just on your way to it.

// Anyone else get a kick out of looking at diving photo stills and cracking up at the faces? Seriously. Look at these!

// Sarah shared what blogs she's currently reading. I love her list and found a few new favorites to check each day.

// Emily from Celebrating the Day shares a post on the Power of Volunteering.

// 21 pictures that will restore your faith in humanity. If you only click one link in this post, let it be this one!

// Want to help an aspiring female filmmaker produce her first movie? Here's how you can!

// Shut up! Emily's shop now has these super cute owl cake topper sets (or you know, just figurines). I love how these are painted like a bride + groom!

// Roxy just went to France and did a recap post on everything she wore while visiting. A fun way to gather ideas if you're set to travel soon!

// Wishlist Wears: This pretty scarf -- This cute dress (I love the anchors!) -- This sassy red dress -- These all over studded flats -- and this bag because it's so so perfect for Autumn!

// Kelsi wrote a post on how to whip up pastel hair color! Ooh la la! Who's gonna try it?!

  32. Hey girl! I know this is random, but I noticed your about me says you live in East Nashville. My boyfriend and I are driving from Cleveland (OH) to Panama City Beach next month and was wondering if you have any suggestions for us to check out while in Nashville for the day, and if you have any suggestions on suburbs around the area that would be cheaper for hotels. Any & all suggestions are very appreciated. Thanks, love!

    1. i'm a cheapo and always use hotwire.com to book hotels (ha. no shame!) but places worth checking out while in town: pre to post modern, taco mamacita, hip zipper, old made good, honeybean (shameless plug), ugly mugs, dragon park. just to name a few!
