The prettiest wedding reception via @theknot.
In honor of a beautiful friend’s wedding this weekend, I’m thinking about love! Here are a couple of my favorite quotes on love and relationships:
“when you meet that person. a person. one of your soulmates. let the connection. relationship be what it is. it may be five mins. five hours. five days. five months. five years. a lifetime. five lifetimes. let it manifest itself, the way it is meant to. it has an organic destiny. this way if it stays or if it leaves, you will be softer from having been loved this authentically. souls come into, return, open, and sweep through your life for a myriad of reasons, let them be who and what they are meant.”
― Nayyirah Waheed
“On knowing if a person is ‘the one,’ my mother once described it like light. For some people, it’s like a light switch. Boom, light! Boom, you know! And for others, maybe it’s more like a sunrise. Indistinguishable at first. Light coming so gradually that you almost don’t notice until all of a sudden, you find yourself in the full bright sun. I always thought that was a beautiful and patient way to think of love and ‘knowing.’ The great love in my life was a sunrise.”

For extra-pretty wedding hair, I'm using this curling iron. It’s a bit more pricey than others I’ve tried but this one has the benefits of being stupid simple to use, always comes out pretty, and is *almost* impossible to burn yourself. Almost! :)
