Love + Gravity

Love + Gravity

After the rush to find matching clothes and  shoes, the morning conversation with the kid usually goes like this:

The kid: Do you think love is stronger than gravity?

Me: I don’t know exactly.

The kid: I wonder . . .

Me: (trying to crash into anyone from staring at the kid in amazement. Yes, I should turn around now.) Yeah, I wonder . . .

For the rest of the day, I really contemplated whether love is stronger than gravity. I suppose love and gravity have a few things in common. Can they really be compared?

You can’t see love or gravity. You can probably see examples of love but you can’t really see any rays of love shooting out of your significant others eyes. The love rays could be problematic if the ex that you still sort of pine for walks into the room. Then everyone knows that you still love them.

Some would say that love and gravity can keep you grounded.However, being grounded by love doesn’t happen for everyone. We all know people that cannot commit to anyone, not even their own children. Love for other people is not inherent in all people.

Gravity on the other hand is with us all of the time,

We can try to block out love but it’s a bit impossible to defy gravity, unless you are in fact Idina Menzel or an astronaut.

Love/Hate Challenge: All of this stuff.


Hollie from “My Blog is My Boyfriend” tagged me to participate in the Love-Hate Challenge. The rules are simple enough. Write 10 things you love, 10 things you hate, and 10 nominees.

You should really visit Hollie at


She is sooo much fun! We’re going to start a whole bunch of ridiculous groups together – like the Hollie/Holley love Lipstick group. I think we could get about ten members. 🙂

Without further ado, here are the things I love and hate. None of it is in any order.

Destino’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Love

love3 love2 love1

Here we are again. It’s time for another black & white photo challenge. This week the challenge is love. Interpret it however you want.

I used to sing to “Love Stinks” when I was five so I’m open to seeing what you think love is. I want to know what love is.

You get the drift.


#Solemates and #Soulmates: A Love Story about Socks


I borrowed my boyfriend’s socks. Okay, I really stole them. It’s not right, I know.

On the bright side, he hates these socks. (I found out afterwards. He says they are too tight. His calves are much more muscular than my quite average calves.) I love these socks because I don’t have to keep pulling them up, which is one of my pet peeves.

He asked me how I felt about stealing his socks. I said “I’ve never felt closer. I think it makes us solemates. Or maybe soulmates.” Could it be both?

Then he said, “Are you going to blog about it?” I’m not sure if he was kidding or not. So here it is, an unexpected post about love and socks. 🙂

This silly post is mostly for my boyfriend but if you also enjoy it, I’m already ahead of the game!

That’s Amore: Daily Post


I made this for my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day last year. It’s completely cheesy. 🙂



Fall in Love: First Boyfriend. NaBloPoMo

Fall in Love: First Boyfriend. NaBloPoMo

My first boyfriend was Jeff Wood. We were in the first grade. I thought he was cute. He bought me a ring. It was wonderful . . . until I realized that I couldn’t marry him. My first name is Holley. If we married, I would be Holley Wood. Like Hollywood. My mom and I still laugh about it.
I’m not sure why it was devastating to me. I don’t remember how many days I was upset. It really couldn’t be all that bad, could it?
Well, he moved to the next town in the second grade. I haven’t seen him since. So much for getting married and being Mrs. Holley Wood.
