To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
RALPH WALDO EMERSON
I met these two through another couple that I had worked with last year. They have been together for 10 years and decided to marry just a few weeks ago. Nothing fancy; just close friends, Lake Merritt, delicious food at Penrose, and real love. Just the way I like it.
Some people need a red carpet rolled out in front of them in order to walk forward into friendship. They can't see the tiny outstretched hands all around them, everywhere, like leaves on trees.
