What It Was Like To Be 17 And In Love


Let’s just say that spring makes me nostalgic. And spring nights make me nostalgic for the period in my life in which I was doing the most wonderful, frightening thing I have ever done…falling in love. There’s just something about the way the leaves sound at night, the way the grass feels on your feet, the way everything is so still and dark, the way the ground smells sweet and kind of sad after it rains. If I close my eyes for a second, I am seventeen all over again and I am full of blushing-crimson-heart pounding-achy-secret smiles and I don’t know where to even BEGIN to store all the happiness in my heart. I just remember sitting on the front steps at nine o’clock at night and thinking, No one has ever felt as terrible and wonderful as I feel right now.

Tonight feels like that.



What about you? What reminds you of falling in love?

I love, love, love this one. That movie clip makes me nostalgic---and in a good way, which surprises me. Also I am in love with that picture of you and Kyle---it is the perfect image of you guys.

Lovely. Certain songs remind me of the feeling. Certain looks my husband gives me that come around a little less often than they did in our earlier, more flirtatious days. Also, the smell of his smells just like John and no one else in the world.
