i'll love you with all the madness in my soul

mondays are going to be the best days of the week for the next 5 months.
remember how b and i made goodbye gifts for each other?
well his was a love letter with a little suprise gift in it for every week that he's gone.
they have the dates on the front and i'm only allowed to open them on mondays.
so naturally, the second i was awake and conscious this morning, i tore that thing open.
it was perfect.
i'm so blessed to have someone that makes me feel loved even across an ocean.

in other news, here are my thoughts so far today:

i found this here and it's breathtaking.
i cannot wait to fly to france, simply for the views from the plane.
i always choose the window seat.

Did I cry at this part the first time I watched it?  Maybe…
from 500 Days of Summer, also found here, this part is so sweet.

i don't have a pretty picture for this one, but go look at Ruche's lookbook.
themed around old country love and reminiscent of The Notebook, it's stunning.

lastly, something to think about from mother theresa.
this is my hope.

"Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house.
Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor…
Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.
Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting."
have an enchanted rainy day!

p.s. the quote was found from here too.
it's the tumblr of a girl i know from school.
it's cute.
go visit :)

I love your bloggy! And I must tell you something: 1. My boy is off for training. So he'll be gone a long time. (Sadface.) Totally understand your pain! And 2. I'm going to Europe on June 3rd too! I am also going to France as well. Isn't that bizarre weird?
Have a great rest of the week. x
