Daily Diversion #75: I Do Not Love You Except Because I Love You*

Today is my wedding anniversary. Two years ago, The Chef and I were rocking out to our Bookish Punk Rock Scottish Vintage Poetry-Laden Party with a Wedding in the Middle. I walked out to the sweet, sweet sounds of The Clash and the ceremony was composed strictly of poetry by Rumi, Mary Pauline Collier (my husband’s grandmother), and my favourite, Pablo Neruda.

*I Do Not Love You Except Because I Love You by Pablo Neruda was the heart of our wedding ceremony. We are weird like that.

    • Ha, thanks! It took me way too long to find those shoes, like half of the wedding planning process long. It was worth it, though, since who doesn’t love purple glitter shoes?

  1. I like your shoes, but must admit that I’m attacked by the shoe-envy bug whenever I visit your blog and see the two delightful women sipping drinks and taking notes. Just found the perfect fitted tweed blazer at the thrift store for two dollars so I can live out my fantasy of the English country gentlewoman as I take the goats for a stroll in the muddy field–then back to the house for a spot of high quality Earl Grey. I think fashion died in the 1960’s.

      Those two delightful women are expat American writers Solita Solano and Djuna Barnes, at a cafe in Paris, 1922. I love everything about that photograph, including their amazing clothes and shoes. So stylish!

      Your blazer, goat, and Earl Grey combination sounds delightful, too, and definitely paints a serene picture.

    • Thanks! It was wonderful, even with a dinner debacle that resulted in us scrambling for a new restaurant 1 hour before our long-standing reservations somewhere else. It was great, though!
      I STILL love those shoes. It took me months to find them. They were ridiculously cheap, so it was worth the wait.
