A Love Song

By Vernon Scannell

  
I’ve always been in love with you I swear

‘Impossible,’ they say; yet it is true:

I speak with certainty, for I was there.

When I reeled groggy as the punchbowl air

Was spiced with melody I longed for you;

I’ve always been in love with you I swear.

My infant whispers to the beat-up bear

Were meant for you, the tears and kisses too;

I speak with certainty, for I was there.

Let experts, calendars and maps declare

I’m nuts or have at least one wobbly screw;

I’ve always been in love with you I swear.

New kinds of beauty and the wish to share

These riches were rehearsals, as I knew;

I speak with certainty, for I was there.

These shadow-loves were work-outs to prepare

For this, the main event, that they led to;

I’ve always been in love with you I swear;

I speak with certainty, for I was there.

The Lost Art of Letter Writing………

Nathaniel Hawthorne to Sophia Peabody

How did I love before I knew you — before I possessed your affection! I reckon upon your love as something that is to endure when everything that can perish has perished — though my trust is sometimes mingled with fear, because I feel myself unworthy of your love. But if I am worthy of it you will always love me; and if there be anything good and pure in me, it will be proved by my always loving  you

The Lost Art of Letter Writing

Abigail Adams to John Adams

Should I draw you the picture of my Heart, it would be what I hope you would Love; tho it contained nothing new; the early possession you obtained there; and the absolute power you have ever maintained over it; leaves not the smallest space unoccupied. I look back to the early days of our acquaintance; and Friendship, as to the days of Love and Innocence; and with an indescribable pleasure I have seen near a score of years roll over our Heads, with an affection heightened and improved by time — nor have the dreary years of absence in the smallest degree effaced from my mind the Image of the dear untitled man to whom I gave my heart.

The Lost Art of Letter Writing

Johnny Cash to June Carter Cash

We get old and get used to each other. We think alike. We read each other’s minds. We know what the other one wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted.

But once in a while, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much.

Can I Afford a Wedding Planner?

Brides take note!!

Grand Elegance Events

By Courtney

harmon wedding coordinator

Can you afford to hire a planner for your wedding?  In our opinion, you can’t afford NOT to hire one; it’s simply a matter of how much help you want from them, and when during the planning process you decide to secure their services.

At minimum, you’ll want someone there for the day to help orchestrate and coordinate the decor, greet and direct vendors, circle up the family and bridal party before the ceremony, pictures and the toasts, to make sure guests know when to be where, and most importantly, to help clean up at the end of the night.  We’ve known many brides and grooms who have decided to forgo this expense, and almost every single one of them say that’s one of the things they definitely would have done differently if they could.  DIY brides will often try to take care of this stuff on their…
