This is honestly one of my favorite movies. For one, I love Meg Ryan… Scratch that, I love pre-2000 Meg Ryan. I think she is adorable. You’ve Got Mail – also one of my favorite movies, but what I’m getting at here isn’t my love of (pre-2000) Meg Ryan, it’s this really lovely part of When Harry Met Sally. Throughout the movie, the main story of Harry and Sally is inter-cut with little interviews of old couples in love, mostly how they met.
Photographer Lauren Fleishman has recaptured this magic in her photo series “Love Ever After”. You probably can’t read that text (unless you right click and pick “view photo”), but it says:
“You don’t really think about getting older. First of all, you’re aging together and when you see a person constantly you don’t notice big changes. You don’t notice, oh, you are getting a little wrinkle here and tomorrow you say it’s a little deeper. Those are things that just happen. You don’t pay attention to those things. I mean, I am not thinking everyday, oh my husband is 83 years old and my goodness I am married to an old man! And I hope he feels that way too.”

Awe man, now tell me that doesn’t brighten your Monday morning just a wee bit?
Tomorrow I leave for Montreal! Hopefully I come back a little less restless and without frostbite.
