Moonrise Kingdom

 

there is something about how this movie perfectly depicts the utopia that is young love and the sanctuary it becomes from the rest of the world. i laughed, i cried, i would watch this again a thousand times over.

The NoMad Hotel

 

 i’ve never been to NYC and have never viewed it as a “hot travel commodity”… until now. a weekend stay with a couple bottles of red wine and… viola! a perfect stay-cation.

What annoys you about your significant other?

While perusing my daily blogs, I came across this post from Joanna Goddard at A CUP OF JO and thought it was rather interesting and perfectly relevant. Check it out below.

Joanna: 

Annoying things that Alex does: Sneezes really loudly in the middle of the night (terrifying). Doesn’t take The Bachelor seriously. Takes forever to get through airport security. Never wants to go on vacations to rainy places (even Maine). 

Annoying things that I do: Am bossy. Clip my toenails on the sofa. Can be super chatty. Am chronically late. Steal bites from his dinner plate. Get grouchy when I drink red wine.

Here’s the thing: Over the years, I’ve realized that literally anyone in the world you spend lots of time with will inevitably annoy you. Even if it’s your mom. Your best friend. Ryan Gosling. Gandhi. No matter who you date, they will drive you crazy sometimes. And that’s OK. You don’t have to fear being annoyed.

 Alex:  

“Young people in relationships tend to give negative things too much weight and underrate the positives. Negatives often get three times the weight of positives. But look at married couples in their eighties. Their little annoyances are often all they talk and joke about. “Oh, Miriam always says this…” “Oh, Herb always does that…” The little annoyances are acknowledged, accepted and part of the fabric of their relationship. They try act like they’re driving each other crazy but they really can’t live with out each other. Annoyances aren’t a deal killer. They’re a natural part of a long, happy marriage.”
