a thing called love

SHIH-1

Over at poppytalk there is a section called I made this for you, in which the couple behind Something’s Hiding in Here documents the sweet little surprise projects they make for each other. I’ve never been in a 10 year relationship, but I hope if I ever am, this is fairly close to how it looks.

Above: plaid shirt tags Shauna made for Stephen (LOVE LOVE LOVE these). Below: the ad Shauna placed in UPPERCASE magazine.

Speaking of long relationships, surprises and love, kudos to my Dad (way to go Dad!) for surprising my Mom with a date to see Willie Nelson the other night. So cute!

    Hmmm, I think these are the kind of abnormal relationship gestures that make everyone else feel like they are in an inadequate relationship. Cynical? Maybe.

    p.s. I do think it’s cute…but seriously?
