this is it!!! today's the DAY.

I can't even belive it!
I won't even believe it, until I'm sitting in the theatre and it actually starts. and so here it is... the last passage i shall share:

Wednesday, July 12, 1995 (Clare is 24, Henry is 32)

CLARE: I'm lying in bed, almost asleep, when I feel Henry's hand brushing over my stomach and realize he's back. I open my eyes and he bends down and kisses the little cigarette burn scar, and in the dim night light I touch his face. "Thank you," I say, and he says, "It was my pleasure," and that is the only time we ever speak of it.


there's a reason i picked this passage to end on. You see i belive in signs... and when I gave this book to darling friend to read, he noticed that their ages where our ages at the time.

i am his Clare, but sometimes... i feel like i am his Henry in the way that i seem to constantly make him wait.

lovies, remember that part in the book where they're at the Violent Femmes concert? and Clare sees two Henry's at different ages?

While side by side at the Coldplay concert last month, I told Max that it reminded me of that part in the book, where Clare meets the future version of Henry, while out with the present one.

Darling friend asked me if I wanted to go find the younger him? I said no, I'd like to meet the older Max; because that would mean we would have made it together.

Happy Happy Friday lovies!!! enjoy your special dates like vanessa or a date with yourself like Jess {cleverly masked cocktails included!} to see this movie we've been waiting for. M, i really wish we were going together.

darling friend, thanks for taking me.
we can celebrate a certain flight with seeing this movie that means something to us. i can't wait for our movie date xo
