I realize it’s a bit strange that I’m publishing someone else’s vows… but you will appreciate them, I promise. These words belong to Katie Armour (Founder of the Neotradionalist.com and Matchbook Magazine). I read them on her blog and fell instantly in love. She and her husband read these aloud, with him beginning the first bolded line. Beautiful no?
"I vow to love you
I vow to love you
to respect you
to be your best friend
to always share my dessert
to be the Emma to your Mr. Knightly
to read aloud to you
to lead a charmed life
to write you love letters
to take spontaneous road trips
to do most of the driving
to keep the NPR podcasts rolling
to always provide you with more trivia than you need
to indulge your geeky side
to always believe your current haircut is the best you’ve ever had
to laugh at your jokes
to buy you lots of pugs
to be patient
to build you a home
to consult you before painting the walls pink
to never stop learning
to dream big dreams
to always be awed by your pioneering spirit
to not overshadow you with my fame [everyone laughed!]
to be your biggest fan
to wake you every morning
to kiss you every night
to learn to cook the basics
to ask about your day
to remember where I left my keys and phone
to hold your hand
to be open-minded
to admit when I’m wrong
to cherish you for always
to never give up
to never, ever give up
to work every day toward being the man you deserve
to work every day toward being the woman you deserve
I adore you. You and Meryl Streep make a wonderful pair (evidence: Devil Wears Prada and Julie and Julia). And I think high waisted trousers and little grandfather spectacles look sharp on you. You are an amazing actor, who can play multiple roles including Paul Child, Emma Stone’s HILARIOUS father in Easy A, the gay costume designer from that terrible flick Burlesque (just kidding, I loved that movie), ANDDD the incredibly creepy murderer from The Lovely Bones. How do you do that? How are you so amazing? I can’t tell you a one single reason, but I can explain it in many.
1. Despite the few roles in which you have portrayed a gay man, there are few men who can muster up the manliness to compete with you.
2. You make the BEST Dad in Easy A, I will marry someone like you. I WILL.
3. Bald is the new sexy.
5. Let’s just run away together… Who cares that you are probably 30 years my senior?? Age doesn’t matter.
Okay so this is getting embarrassing. My adoration for Star Wars has grown complete, I just finished watching Episode 6 with my dear friends (you know, the ones who originally forced me into watching it and now I love them for it). Let’s just say, I had a wide grin across my face and I’m a TOTAL sucker for a happy ending. Also— Vader is my favorite character by far. Double also— my mother and brother would be ashamed of me. However, I see nothing wrong with being the type of girl who lives for sequin dresses, Carrera marble in kitchens, the color pink, wedding design, traveling, frozen yogurt, beauty products and the occasional Star Wars indulgence. In fact, this is merely making me the well rounded, cultured woman I strive to be. AND, I am now one step closer to seducing a sexy nerd/lumberjack as my mate. Bravo Mac. Bravo.
Anyway… saw these at William Sonoma and died a little. These are the perfect combo of Miss Mac and her Star Wars love.
Oh how I crave Pink and Grey interior design. It’s been decided. Next year, my dorm will be pale pink and grey… their will be gold accents and plenty of elephant decor. Maybe even some cream hydrangeas or peonies.
It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want - oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! -Mark Twain
