"You know that place between sleep and awake, that place where you still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you. That’s where I’ll be waiting."
Hook, 1991 (via youngfolksociety)
"Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse- “If I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?"
Lea Grover, "We Don’t Play With Our Vulvas At The Table"
THIS IS SO IMPORTANT
"I don’t want to be married just to be married. I can’t think of anything lonelier than spending the rest of my life with someone I can’t talk to, or worse, someone I can’t be silent with."
Mary Ann Shaffer (via yourlifeisyourmessage)
“Moving is a bonding experience, to say the least. The whole process has been a headache, at times, but I think, we both (Russell & I) really enjoyed it. We have created so many personal jokes just from this weekend alone. From late night Wal-Mart runs with paint all over our faces to having a sleepover on our couch in the living room (of our old place) because the paint fumes were so bad in our bedroom. I can’t imagine doing any of this with anyone else. Life is really, really fun when you marry your best friend. All is right in the world, as long as he is holding my hand, and leading me.”
