mixtape mood – all you need is love

“the best thing to hold on in life is each other”
-audrey hepburn

ten years.
rob & i have laughed, lived, learned and loved together for ten years.
looking back, it has been the most fantastical adventure a girl could wish for.  and looking forward, i know that the next ten…and the ones to follow those, will be even more extraordinary. like burt & verona in “away we go,” who knows where we’ll go, where we’ll live, what we’ll do…we’re in for the wild ride, together. 
to our best friends, our other halves, our soul mates….this is dedicated to you.
