Simple Inspiration: Countdown Inspired Quotes

There has been an absolute transition of time. It used to be that when people would ask when the wedding was, I would tell them, and they would respond: "Oh you have plenty of time!" And now all of a sudden the canned answer is, "Oh, that's coming up fast!"

117 days until the wedding. 89 days until the send off party.

Yikes when did that happen??

I have been collecting love quotes since we got engaged. I am not sure what, if anything, I will do with them but they are lovely.

Most of these have come from this blog.

Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest.
-- Henry Van Dyke

"When you're in love you never really know whether
your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love,
or if it attributes them to her;
whether the light which surrounds her like a halo
comes from you, from her,
or from the meeting of your sparks."
- Natalie Clifford Barney

"Open your life wide, and take me in forever.
I will never be tired-
I will never be noisy when you want
to be still...nobody else will see me, but you—
but that is enough—I shall not want any more."
—Emily Dickinson to an unknown recipient

"Love is everything it's cracked up to be …
It really is worth fighting for,
being brave for, risking everything for."
— Erica Jong

“Sometimes, when we’re lying together,
I look at her
and I feel dizzy with the realization
that here is another distinct person from me,
who has memories, origins, thoughts,
feelings that are different from my own.
That tension between familiarity
and mystery meshes
something strong between us.
Even if one builds a life together based on trust,
attentiveness and mutual support,
I think that it’s important
that a partner continues to surprise."
-Barack Obama
