Masters and Disasters: An Article on Lasting Love
As you might know, Z is writing her dissertation on love. So, articles such as this one based on social science research really get her excited! This article (a popular one, not an academic one) offers insight on how to tell if someone’s marriage is going to last or not, and offers an insight into a lasting marriage. If you’ve got a sec, it is well worth the read!
First, many many thanks to those of you who have generously asked us if we are registered anywhere or if we need any specific things. We really appreciate your generosity and thoughtfulness. As you likely know, we live in a modest space that is filled sunshine, and are saving our pennies to one day purchase a small home in Toronto that we can call our own. It would be very helpful if you could help us save for our future nest. At present, we don’t have space for many things, but would love a few select things to help us out in our favourite space: the kitchen. Including this and this.
Shopping local and supporting small businesses is really important to both of us. So, we’ve asked Mika at Good Egg to help us create a registry at her shop. Good Egg offers a 20% discount on all Le Crueset purchases, features all of the majors brands that you’d find at larger shops, stocks cute tschotchkes, and runs classes (knife skills!). If you give Mika a call or email, she will help you out with the few things on our list. You can pop by the shop, or order with her over the phone. (new note: there is no need to pick up your gift. Mika will tuck it away, and we can pick it up (just let us know!)
It’s hard to settle on a dress when you are fussy, and having just enough sewing know-how to want a well crafted gown. But, Z finally settled on a vintage dress from Life of Manek. The shop girl, Clara was so thrilled that we celebrated with some sparkling!
Band A Part (The Band of Outsiders) A bonus Godard post (how could I resist?). Skipping out on English class, they take to the cafe! (And, Z pushes aside her feelings as an ESL teacher, and just enjoys the movie)
If we’ve learned anything about marriage so far, its that being married let’s you form your own little Band A Part (band of outsiders).
Emile (Jean-Claude Brialy) and Angela (Anna Karina) express their love for each other through toothbrushing and booking titles.
