Spring is in the air!
After a 40 minute commute home from a typical 8 hour shift at work, we arrive at our home at the same time.
“Hello, beautiful”, you say to me and our lips touch like we’ve gone weeks without seeing one another.
We go in, and hold each other in the doorway, soaking up all the love and warmth.
Settle in bed for a nap, but end up passionately making out, throwing each other around, proving our love to one another.
An hour later, we end up falling asleep wrapped around each like a human cinnamon twist.
You wake me with a kiss and tell me to keep sleeping while you fix dinner.
I lay there with my eyes closed and end up getting in the shower. a few minutes later you sneak in with me.
Looking into each other’s eyes longing. Kissing while the water runs the shampoo out of my wet hair.
This is too good to be true. This is what the movies portray, and I’m waiting for the conflict to arise.
But there isn’t.
It’s just you and me. Together. With love. It’s not complicated. It just is.
This is where we are and what we plan to have.
Nothing but love.
It is so incredibly sad that our generation was raised watching mainstream and believe that that is what sex is supposed to be. It so IS NOT!
“Pretty soon there will be enough extra metal attached to the city’s bridges to build another bridge. Which will soon be lined with padlocks.”
February 14th, 2014
For Valentine’s Day, he took me the Pedestrian bridge and gave me a box. In the box there was a yellow padlock with an inscription of a quote:
"You turn me on to the idea of growing old."
With a heart and stars and our names. We locked it to the bridge together and tossed the key in the river.
He said, “Although, we may not stay in Nashville, this lock is a symbol of how we fell in love in this city and our love.”
KICKSTART YOUR DAY WITH: “Because Of Them, We Can…” by Eunique Jones Gibson
This amazing photo campaign for kids where African-American children pose as the great African Americans of our past and present that helped PoC to become who they are now, started out as a project for Black History Month. The photographer behind the project, Eunique J. Gibson, then realized that doing this for only 28 days out of the month of February couldn’t and wouldn’t do.
Extending it to a full year where everyday, she would post a new photograph up on social networks, Gibson started the Kickstarter to turn her photo series into a book. She hopes to raise $80,000 by mid June, and has so far raised a little over $9,000.

Regardless of whether you watch Scandal or not, everyone needs to watch this and see Lisa Kudrow fucking nail her scene exploiting misogyny and sexism.
I’m pretty sure that just changed my life.
Don’t interrupt me when I’m speaking.
I’m just gonna leave this here so y’all can marinate on this glory.
