That certain couple – Eric & Britt

We have all seen them at some point.

That certain couple. The ones you envy. The couple you might even roll your eyes at with a smile. The ‘happily ever after’ couple you might just be living vicariously through.

Maybe you have seen them when you’re out grabbing a coffee – they are flirting like mad, laughing with enthusiasm, and beyond giddy about the person they are with. They’re probably leaning in close with a twinkle in the eyes, holding hands, and have no idea that there is a whole world going on around them.

 I live for those stolen moments.  Those magic moments around me.

I read this recently and it just reminded me to look around more often:

“My mind wandered. I thought of this: I thought of how every day each of us experiences a few little moments that have just a bit more resonance than other moments— we hear a word that sticks in our mind—or maybe we have a small experience that pulls us out of ourselves, if only briefly— we share a hotel elevator with a bride in her veil, say, or a stranger gives us a piece of bread to feed to the mallard ducks in the lagoon; a small child starts a conversation with us in a Dairy Queen…

And if we were to collect these small moments in a notebook and save them over a period of months we would see certain trends emerge from our collection— certain voices would emerge that have been trying to speak through us. We would realize that we have been having another life altogether; one we didn’t even know was going on inside us. And maybe this other life is more important than the one we think of as being real—this clunky day-to-day world of furniture and noise and metal. So just maybe it is these small silent moments which are the true story-making events of our lives.”

I am for sure, the luckiest girl in the world to see these moments with my couples so often. Thank you Erik and Britt for sharing those magic moments with me.

Here is hoping we savor the moments, because in the end it’s the only thing we have…

This is one of those moments. When they throw all caution to the wind and are comfortable enough with me to be a part of the moment.

Britt and Erik…all I’m going to say is, you had me at hello. I adore you both.

I’m so excited to document the happy day at Land’s End next year!

Britt, I would think you were super cool even if you weren’t born on my birthday! ; ) Hope you had the most fabulous day ever!

    I was going to come up with a smart-ass comment about prancing about in sandals befitting my usual…but no, I think I’ll just save that for another time. These really came out wonderfully!
