“I loved her and it is the beginning and end of everything” — F. Scott Fitzgerald

“I feel like I’ve finally met someone I can stand still with.  Having a dog together means having a life together, all in, both of us.” — Masters of Sex
“We think about it, sing about it, dream about it, lose sleep worrying about it. When we don’t have it; we search for it; when we discover it; we don’t know what to do with it; when we have it; we fear losing it. It is the constant source of pleasure and pain. But we can’t predict which it will be from one moment to the next. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, impossible to live without.”

“It’s when they’re the last thing you think about before you go to sleep and when they’re the first thing you think of when you wake up” (maybe from “When Harry Met Sally”?!)

In French you don’t say “I miss you” you say “tu me manqués” which means you are missing from me ❤️

“You are the poem I never knew how to write and this life is the story I’ve always wanted to tell” — Tyler Knott Gregson
“That’s not love, that’s not a connection.  I didn’t know her & she didn’t know me, REALLY KNOWING someone is something else entirely, it’s a completely different thing and when it happens you won’t be able to miss it, you will be aware, and it won’t hurt & you won’t be be afraid” — Adam from Girls

my parents married 54 years … until death do us part

Most romantic scenes from a movie or show …

Out of Africa 
When Karen, Barceley & Denys are sitting in her study in front of the fire and Denys asks her to tell a story and she creates an elaborate tale right on the spot and you can see Denys falls in love right there and then.  And the scene with they are on safari and Denys is washing Karen’s hair. And at the end of the movie when she has to go back to Denmark and he comes to visit her and he says to her “you know you’ve ruined it for me”  and she says “what have I ruined?” and he answers “being alone”

An Officer & A Gentleman 
When Richard Gere comes into the factory at the end of the movie in his navy whites and  literally sweeps Deborah Winger of her feet and all the female factory workers start  cheering because one of them finally got her Prince Charming.

When Hannah face-times Adam to “say hi” and he asks how she’s doing and she says “great” — but he can tell she’s not, and he says “I’m coming over” and she says not to and he says “stay right there I’m coming to you” and he runs through the city while keeping her on the phone the entire time and when he gets to her apartment and she says “you’re here?” And he says “I was always here” … even though they’ve been broken up for months …

Gone With The Wind 

When Scarlett sneaks downstairs to get a nightcap and Rhett is already in the study drinking and he’s drunk and tells her “don’t think for one minute I don’t know you drink on the sly” and then she leaves to walk away from him to go back to bed and he chases after her and grabs her and takes her up the stairs …

First a little bit about me ... I'm going to be 50 in about 5 minutes, I've been married for 20 years and have two incredibly great teenagers, (albeit incredibly moody). I am a Capricorn and I'd say 99% Capricorn. I do yoga everyday and my husband says "for someone who does ("practices" is the correct term FYI ; yoga everyday you're awfully high strung", my response is "can you imagine me if I didn't do yoga everyday"? and his response is "I'd be scared"! I've been told by a number of people that I need to lower my expectations of people because then I won't constantly be disappointed. My husband says he tries to have zero expectations and then sometimes he's pleasantly surprised. :) Which is really great advice and may work for him but I'm having a hard time with it, and I don't want to lower my expectations, I want people to rise to my expectations (someone said to me the other day "who died and made you God")? So I've been "practicing" this mantra "lower your expectations, be more forgiving and compassionate & understanding" it has maybe worked a tiny bit. And then I came across this quote while in the throes of being disappointed by others "There is no good way or bad way. And the sooner we let go of expectations about how things are supposed to go, the happier we get to be." Which I wrote down and put in my nightstand from a book I read called "The Divorce Party" by Laura Dave. So I texted my friend that quote, who also has high expectations of people and who is also constantly let down and I said "perhaps my mother is right, she told me I have really high expectations of myself and so I think everyone else should be the same and they're not, so the sooner I accept that the better". And my friend's response was? "Lies, all lies! Of course there is a good way and a bad way, the GOOD way is OUR way"! For better or for worse I have to say I agree! "What is wrong with people?" was going to be the title of my blog because I constantly find those words coming out of my mouth ... but this "blog" has morphed into something else because it turned out I actually have a lot of positive good things to say and share about people, I shocked myself, so therefore I changed the title and the direction of my "blog/website" ... my initial emoji I was going to use was 😩 But now the one I want to use is ❤️
