Just because I’m on this Holiday Mush Mode, here’s a Serendipity entry. There are a lot of Holiday Romance movies, and for me, this one is right up there among An Affair to Remember and Love Actually. Sharkboy quoted a line last night, which got me into this quote frenzy.

So here you go. I’m sharing the m00sh vibes.

And awesome, that photo is delicious in all its bokeh-yumminess even before bokeh became a word. I HEART. ❤

I also love that the WordPress Snow keeps this snuggly-Christmas themed entry extra romantic. HEEHEE.

Sara: Favorite New York moment?
Jonathan: This one is climbing the charts right now.

Sara: You don’t have to understand. You just have to have faith.
Jonathan: Faith in what?
Sara: Destiny.

When love feels like magic, it’s called Destiny. When destiny has a sense of humor, it’s called Serendipity.

You don’t have the most incredible night of your life with a perfect stranger and leave it up to chance, do you?


Again, from Mr. Gaiman


“Let us begin this letter, this prelude to an encounter, formally, as a declaration, in the old-fashioned way: I love you. You do not know me (although you have seen me, smiled at me). I know you (although not so well as I would like. I want to be there when your eyes flutter open in the morning, and you see me, and you smile. Surely this would be paradise enough?). So I do declare myself to you now, with pen set to paper. I declare it again: I love you.”

I’m getting too mushy for my own good.

“Love isn’t about the romantic nights or gifts. It isn’t about fireworks going off around you when you have that first, real, kiss. Love isn’t about kissing in the rain and dancing beneath the stars. It isn’t about the big moments or the big surprises. Love is not a fairytale. Love is about still having the butterflies after years. It’s about the second looks and laying in bed wide awake, all night, because you can’t go to sleep mad at each other. It’s about being willing to sacrifice, literally, everything for someone, just because you care so deeply for them. It’s not about buying them gifts, but it’s about leaving them little presents here and there, just to remind them that you are constantly thinking about them. Love is about all of the little things, that add up to really big things. Love is rare and special, but should not be treated as if it will break. Love needs to be thrown around and beat up a little bit, worn in, but not worn down. Love needs to be a comfortable feeling, a place to go when NO ONE else in the world can relate. A safe place, where you know that no matter how ugly you look or how angry you are, you will still be… loved.”

Just lovely. ❤
