Word.

“A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a cold night” 
― Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn, you speak the truth.

Now come tuck me in and read me a bed time story while I daydream of good friends, warm memories and tight hugs from my man.

    1. please do. we can ride bikes with baskets filled with wildflowers and ride down to the beach wearing 1950s pin-up swimming costumes and run into the water and squeal as the cold water brushes against our toes. we will stay up all night by the bonfire our men lit and we will dance around it singing mumford and sons and drinking cider. it will be magical.

  4. I really love the candle that features in the above shots. I didn't notice it at first but sure enough it peeks out from the bottom there, all cute and kind of lonely but so proud.

    As for that glorious Marilyn quote... that lady, I tell ya.... So very completely true. It's easy to get super wrapped up in your career and careers can indeed provide a lot of happiness and joy. But at the end of the day, for me at least, feeling that sense of success and accomplishment, knowing you've done a good thing, hasn't got anything on a hug and a chat and a laugh with people you love.

  7. I love these pictures Sam! I'd say that your blog has the best photos ever! I am never disappointed every time I come and visit. There's always a surprise somewhere... The line "Marilyn, you speak the truth.Now come tuck me in and read me a bed time story while I daydream of good friends, warm memories and tight hugs from my man." was the neat surprise for me in this post. You are so adorable Sam. :)
