I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You by Courtney Maum
“I fell asleep smiling, fully at ease with the ludicrous prospect of spending the rest of my life with this one, single person. It's not quite right what they say: love doesn't make you blind, it makes you optimistic.”
Courtney Maum
I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You by Courtney Maum
“You love people. They disappoint you. But sometimes, they don’t. They just keep loving you, right through it all, waiting for you to wake up and appreciate them. To say, “I love you. I’ve always loved you back.”

“So many books, so little time.”

Cheryl Strayed
“I was a terrible believer in things,but I was also a terrible nonbeliever in things. I was as searching as I was skeptical.

Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail
