“And you know what else? There IS NO Prince/Princess Charming!! There are just real people with real problems and real triumphs, and sometimes the stars align and the timing and personalities and level of commitment is just right, and SOMETIMES THEY DON’T. That is REAL FLIPPING LIFE.”

– Coco





“Once we make our relationship choices in an adult way, a prospective partner who is unavailable, nonreciprocal, or not open to processing feelings and issues, becomes, by those very facts, unappealing. Once we love ourselves, people no longer look good to us unless they are good for us.”

– David Richo, How to Be an Adult in Relationships

This, which we came across on Design*Sponge, is probably one of the most adorable things we’ve ever seen.



Thank you, Matt Dorfman, for being so truly awesome and designing this amazing invite.


(A note to our friends and boyfriends: we are not thinking of getting married anytime soon and thus have no real use for wedding invitations– we’re just suckers for a good love story.)

love, actually

… when they make you happier every day than you would be without them …




 … when they consider your needs in considering their own …




… when they make you want to be a better person and support you in trying to make that happen …




… when they accept you and admire you for who you are …




… when you have that moment of thinking, ‘I cannot imagine being with anyone else, because this person fits my life and who I am so well’…





That’s love.
