I Was A Bride Married To Amazement.

The subject we were given today was our favorite quote, whether that be from a person, a book etc.. When I'm reading I often come across quotes or phrases that I like and that I want to remember so I normally end up writing them down in a random notebook, that nine times out of ten James ends up taking and scribbling all over, hence the reason I have about thirty notebooks, all of them half filled :)

This topic got me thinking about my favorite ones. I love the work of Mary Oliver, the American Poet. I had never heard of her until a few years ago when another blogger that I follow quoted her and after a quick search on trusty Google, I sat reading for ages. Trying to narrow down my favorites for today was hard, but I got there in the end! Here they are.. 

Mary Oliver Quotes

"When it's over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement"

"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"

"Listen--are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?"

And I couldn't leave this quote out.. It's sums up everything I feel about James and parenting, in just two sentences - 

It's all kind of these profound things crashing on you when your child arrives in the world. It's like you've met your reason to live.. Johnny Depp. 


  1. Mmmmm, Johnny Depp is definitely a reason for living!
