Overall, I'd say my first foray into online shopping had been successful.
the package came beautifully wrapped with a lovely personalized note. the green tote turned out to be in much better condition than i'd expected, although the yellow clutch was a tad too aged for my liking. but that's a small problem i'm prepared to overlook, since it's always more enjoyable owning something that's a little bit different, with a little bit of a story behind it.
change of topic, but i just finished reading an interview with susan downey in harper's bazaar and i'm thinking that her relationship with actor-with-stormy-past robert downey jr. reads like a love novel, except this story has its feet planted firmly in the ground.
robert downey on meeting his wife:
"i guess the only way to explain it is that i've become more like her. i'm still trying to figure out what happened. whatever i was hungry for when i met susan, i couldn't have known how much more satisfying what i got would be."
susan downey on her connection she shares with her husband:
"there was something magical there, something we couldn't put our finger on. he always says that we became this third thing when we got together - something that neither of us could have become by ourselves - and i think that's true."
makes you wanna go out and become a third thing with someone, and fall in love so hard you quell your doubts and quench all of your restlessness.
