John & Nancy

When John sat across Nancy at Seattle’s Best Katipunan six years ago, he had to have known his life was about to change. Well, we all did, and what a joy and privilege it has been watching their love story unfold, from our own corner seat at SBC and the corridors of Malcolm Hall. Thank you Nancy and John for this wonderful journey through time. ♥ You are two of the nicest, sweetest people I know, and my goodness what a good-looking couple you make! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Fajardo!

You do not know me (although you have seen me, smiled at me). I know you (although not so well as I would like. I want to be there when your eyes flutter open in the morning, and you see me, and you smile. Surely this would be paradise enough?). So I do declare myself to you now, with pen set to paper. I declare it again: I love you.”

Neil Gaiman

I’ve seen the waters that make your eyes shine. Now I’m shining too. If I didn’t know you I’d rather not know. If I couldn’t have you I’d rather be alone. I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much. All of the while I never knew.

Falling In Love At A Coffee Shop, Landon Pigg

That’s why I love you and yet not why.
There are so many reasons, and yet so few,
for love has to be so,
involving and general,
particular and terrifying,
joyful and grieving,
flowering like the stars,
and measureless as a kiss.

Pablo Neruda

Heart, are you great enough
For a love that never tires?
Oh heart, are you great enough for love?

Marriage Morning, Alfred Tennyson

(i do not know what it is about you that closes and opens; only something in me understands the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)

e.e. cummings


Sounds of laughter shades of love are
Ringing through my open ears inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a
Million suns, and calls me on and on
Across the universe

John Lennon

We do not remember days; we remember moments.

Cesare Pavese

We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

Leonard Cohen

Love is the slate under the chalk, the ground where buildings rise, and the oxygen in the air. It is the place you come back to, no matter where you’re headed.

Jodi Picoult


The truth about forever is that it is happening right now.

Sarah Dessen
