dear mr. perfect,

i hope this finds you well. im sure you are off saving the world somewhere. more realistically, you just finished doing architectural work for your dream company. soon i will open my cute little boutique i have always wanted. and with our creative powers combined, our house will be the best thing that has ever happened and life will be complete! along with our family: well have 3 kids, at least--just like the kennedys! ...i imagine this for us in a couple/like 10 years.

for now though, we have SO much fun together! we are both good at coming up with little random activities to keep us entertained. your adventurous spirit rubs off on me and keeps our relationship lively. and so does our sex life. i of course i love most things about you, but more specifically i love your sense of humor, values, personality, height, pit hospitality (and that you know what movie that comes from), ability to quote movies and lyrics, love for discussing hypothetical questions, taste in music, of course your family. and i appreciate more than you would ever know, that you think my eyes are beautiful but my most attractive features are my heart and soul (ha!). you love my laugh and find it contagious. and you think im rad and love that i am super cute!
the songs brown eyed girl, unusually unusual, love spell (pardon the anime in the vid and please dont let it ruin the song), and shes every woman, to name a few, remind you of me. it makes me blush when you bring up my name in conversations simply because your thinking of me. others find it cute and sweet, not annoying like it sounds. surprising me with fresh flowers makes my day. in fact, all your little surprises make my day.

oh and i know that things wont always be rainbows and butterflies and sometimes it will get complicated and difficult because well, i am sometimes complicated and difficult. i am completely hopeless when it comes to directions, spelling, technology, and mental math, i dont like ketchup or hot dogs, the only time i brush my hair is right after i get out of the shower, i can get pretty obnoxious, it takes me hours to get dressed (and you think, "sweatpants, hair tied, chillin with no make up on- thats when your the prettiest. i hope that you dont take it wrong."), im nosey, and i like to be catered to (and once again lyrics come to your head, "let me cater to you!"), i cuss too much, and i have some stray grey hairs. none the less, you think im a peach!

our ability to compromise, is not the least bit compromising, and makes our relationship work. well that, and we were totally made for each other. we are just swell together!

xoxxo. the love of your life, lauren

ps-where the F are you??!


on a totally unrelated note: i have a hunch that i am one of the last people to discover drunk history but, if this is untrue and you have not yet seen these hilarious videos then go here and watch them immediately. especially volume 2 and 2.5 starring jack black. now, go!

is timing everything?

ive been talking about it a lot. and its a serious question. i mean, think about it. everything happens at a certain time for certain reasons...or so i believe.

i ride the bus everyday. and every time i get on (besides wanting to shoot myself in the foot) i look around at all the different faces. every ride is filled (to the point of people stepping on your toes, literally) with different people that get on and off that bus that wouldnt be there, on that specific bus, if their timing wasnt exact. maybe this kind of thing is purposely fated? maybe we are supposed to be on that bus with those people for a reason?
and this idea doesnt just pertain to buses. its every aspect of our life and every encounter we wouldnt happen if it wasnt for timing. is this logical or am i just dreaming again?

again with timing, like carrie bradshaw, i wonder: would my life would be completely different if i wasnt perpetually 10 minutes late?

but more specifically, in a relationship, is timing everything?i have friends who think that two people could be perfect for each other but their timing could be all wrong and therefore, their relationship will not work out. i think that there are sensitive periods. like when learning to speak, relationships have to happen in a certain period of time that is good for both people. however, i dont think that two people that were so right for each other wouldnt work out just cause their timing was off. or at least i hope not.

timing is uncontrollable. the thing we can control is how we spend the time we have. so spend it well!


oh and, last year at this time i was...

"she is caring and warm, always ready with a hug or an encourging word. you can't help but feel nurtured in her presence.

she loves this delightfully scented body wash because it does more than indulge her skin with irresistibly soft lather. it's also shown to moisturizefor 24 hours, leaving her skin feeling irresistibly soft and smooth.

her spirit is effortlessly beautiful. her skin loves JOHNSON."

if there was no such thing as "inappropriate," the whole world would laugh a lot more simply from my stories. oh what a world that would be!
