A Frida kind of Friday

Ever since my art teacher introduced me to her work in 9th grade, I've had a little crush on Frida Kahlo's work... you can just imagine my joy when I came across this beautiful, Frida-inspired wedding...

Growing old, and more in love....

I don't know if it's only me (I highly doubt it) but I am pretty convinced that there is nothing more beautiful than an elderly couple still in love ......


...this is why I had to swallow hard to keep the tears at bay when I read this ...

" Today, we visited my grandma who has an irregular case of Alzheimer's. When she said she wasnt't married, my grandpa looked up in despair. We could all tell it killed him inside. But instead of getting angry, he stood up, walked over to her, kneeled and ask her to marry him again. After a few moments of jogging her memory, she said "YES"."

Isn't this the most beautiful thing you've read in a long time?
My friend told me about this amazing website
and I can really advise it to anybody who want some reassurance that the world is a wonderful place.

Current Obsession: Greece

This past weekend, Chris amused me with the story of how Europe got its name!
It's quite an interesting (violent) story that includes Jupiter (sadly no Jasmin) and is set in beautiful, beautiful Greece.

Always quite curious about it, I decided to go read up some more about Greek mythology and all I really can say is....WOW.

Subsequently I’ve developed a little obsession with Greece....

Sharing is caring, afterall :-)
