Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell Get Matching Stars on the Holllywood Walk of Fame

Kurt and Goldie may not be married, but they are now together in a much more permanent way. People reports that Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell both received stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, right next to each other. 

Here is part of Goldie's acceptance speech:
“Can we just get married? We’ve never had a celebration like this before. Thank you to my beautiful daughter and my other beautiful daughter (referring to Reese Witherspoon, who gave a speech honoring Hawn at the ceremony). This means more to me as I start reflecting on things. I was a dancer and I carried my dancing shoes up here looking for an agent. I couldn’t find an agent, I found a fabulous dentist but I couldn’t find an agent. That star is part of ‘yes.’ I really went through something then because I didn’t know what it meant to be a star when people didn’t know who I was. I didn’t get my white picket fence but I got a beautiful house. I said yes to Kurt Russell. I said yes to Bill Hudson, and without Bill I wouldn’t have had Katie and Oliver. I wish my mom and my dad could see me.”

Here is part of Kurt's acceptance speech:
“I owe a special debt of appreciation to my family. Thanks to my kids Boston, Oliver, Kate and Wyatt. Any father would be blessed to be gifted with the lifetime you have brought me. Goldie to you, I owe my wonderful life. Simply put Goldie, I cherish you. All of the stars in the sky or the boulevard don’t hold a candle to that. There’s no one else I’d rather be next to than Goldie Hawn.”

And here's what Kate Hudson had to say, in tribute to her parents:
“I was slotted in to talk about my mother, but I have two parents and they’re both here. I always thought I’d be talking about them at a wedding or something. But since a wedding doesn’t seem to be in our near future, this seems to be my only opportunity. Their philosophy is family first. As their child, what really stands out is [that] somehow in their phenomenal careers, they’ve maintained normalcy with all of their children. They never hid away their love for making movies. For me and my brother [Oliver], we grew up with artists. These shining stars standing next to me, their real legacy is what they’ve instilled in us kids.”

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Summer of Fun and Romance

Everyone is wondering about this athlete’s outing with a beautiful blonde. Does this mean that they are dating?

Sort of.

They are trial dating!

She has a film coming out which could be her entree into a serious acting career. That requires big publicity… which is easier to obtain if you have a famous man by your side!

He’s coming off a contract relationship that didn’t end very amicably. He needs to quickly diffuse any rumors that might make him look anything less than completely manly… which is easier to do with a beautiful woman by your side!

He needs a girlfriend. She needs a P.R. bump. He held up his end of his contract with [Dark-Haired Actress]. She held up her end of her contract with [Actor]. So, the timing is right, they both have a P.R. need, and they both have contract experience.

So when will this perfect relationship come to pass?

"They get along but he wants to do a couple of more casual outings before signing. He’s just cautious because of his experience with [Actress]. Contract goes all summer. They’re both in great shape so we are hoping to get lots of fun and romantic photo ops at the beach and such.  Option for an extension in the autumn. It looks good right now, but check back in a few weeks."

We will! We’re hoping for a “fun and romance”-packed summer!

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Weird Material

Guess which B list star had her agent travel to the dark side of the internet, contact the shady hackers and attempt to buy up every naked picture and video of herself?

Unfortunately that didn't work out and the material will be leaked, if it hasn't already.

Apparently it's... weird.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Miley Cyrus is Back At It

Miley Cyrus recently sat down for an interview with Billboard Magazine, where she talked about her upcoming album, among other things. Here are some of the highlights:

On her newfound sobriety:
“This is crazy, but I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks! I like to surround myself with people that make me want to get better, more evolved, open. And I was noticing, it’s not the people that are stoned. I want to be super clear and sharp, because I know exactly where I want to be.”

On the chill vibe of her Malibu neighborhood:
 “I love talking to people, and I approach them in a normal, ‘Don’t treat me different, ’cause I’m not’ way. That’s what started this evolution for me, getting out of my Dead Petz phase. People stare at me anyway, but people stare at me a lot when I’m dressed as a ­fucking cat.”

Where exactly did you write ­“Malibu”?
"On the way to The Voice. I drive myself everywhere, but that day I decided to Uber, and I was trying not to sing out loud because someone else was in the car."

People might call it sentimental.
"They’re going to talk about me if I come out of a restaurant with Liam. So why not put the power back in my relationship and say, “This is how I feel”?"

After you guys broke up, you said something like, “I’m so immersed in work, I can’t even think about it.”
"Yeah, but also ’cause I needed to change so much. And changing with someone else not changing like that is too hard. Suddenly you’re like, “I don’t recognize you anymore.” We had to refall for each other."

The new album is pretty singer-­songwriter-y, no?
"Yeah. But not granola. I don’t listen to Ed Sheeran and John Mayer and stuff."

We’ve seen the way that Madonna and Lady Gaga get asked, “Is this just another costume? Another phase?”
"I think [Madonna and Gaga] are ­enlightened. I ­fucking hate it when people can’t adjust. I used to [resist changing]. But I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I’ve ever [gone without it]. I’m not doing drugs, I’m not drinking, I’m completely clean right now! That was just something that I wanted to do.

It’s easy, dude. When I want something, it’s fucking easy for me. But if anyone told me not to smoke, I would have not done it. It’s because it was on my time. I know exactly where I am right now. I know what I want this record to be. And not in the sense of manipulation -- wanting something from my fans or the audience, like some slimy thing -- “How do I get attention?” I never thought about that. Dude, I was shocked that ­people gave a fuck about the [MTV Video Music Awards in 2013, when she performed with Robin Thicke] -- the ­twerking, the teddy bear. It’s a totally ­different time, and I don’t think that would freak people out anymore."

Paramore: Told You So [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

Sarah Paulson Bought Emma Roberts' House

Sarah Paulson recently talked to Architectural Digest about buying her American Horror Story co-star Emma Roberts' house. Here's what she had to say:

AD: A little birdie told us you just bought a house.
Sarah Paulson: "I did just buy a house! It’s in Los Angeles."

AD: And Emma Roberts used to own it, right? Were you just hanging out there one time and asked her if you could buy it, or how did it happen?
SP: "I had never been to her house actually, but I was really starting for the first time…I’m a New Yorker at heart, so the idea of living in a box over a subway stop never really bothered me, and it’s all I ever really thought I wanted and I was totally content with, but it turned out when you live in Los Angeles for a long enough time, you start to realize: "Wait, you mean I can figure out a rug, and a bedspread, and a painting that I love?!" And all of a sudden those things were starting to become things I was aware of in terms of my own personal tastes. And I happen to think Emma has incredible taste. And we worked together, and I think Emma was doing Scream Queens at the time and I was still doing American Horror Story, and I was standing with one of the producers, who is a friend of Emma’s as well, and she texted very casually, "Oh, I want to sell my house." I don’t think she was that serious. I was sitting there and I said to him: "Tell her right now I want to go see that house!" And it happened very, very quickly, and I’m not 100 percent sure she really wanted to do that but it’s too late now—I’ve already done so much stuff to it you can’t even imagine!"

AD: So you’re doing a renovation and redecoration?

SP: "I did do a renovation—the redecorating hasn't even started. I took out a lot of things that were in there. I changed the floors. There were beautiful 12-inch-wide oak plank floors that I pulled out and poured polish concrete through the whole house. I just love that look. I love the idea of having something very cold on the bottom of something and building the warmth up from it, because I love color. I have a lot of Moroccan farm French weird things happening in my house, and turquoise and fuchsia, so I thought, If I have a beautiful gray floor and white walls I have a nice clean palette to play with."

AD: Do you have any dream items or plans for the home you have your eye on now that you’re a homeowner for the first time?

SP: "Hmm, no, but I think basically a big mistake I made was making it all about the interior. The house is a really “indoor-outdoor house,” in that the front of the house is really unassuming in that there’s no windows really. You can’t really tell what it is and in the back, where the master bedroom and the living room are, it’s all floor-to-ceiling windows that open completely out, so it’s basically about the outside being part of the inside. I haven’t done anything to the outside yet. Emma had never done anything, and it turns out that she was like, "You can have a pool here if you want one, it’s permitted for it." And I’m like, "Oh, great!" I had the guy come up, and it turns out there is a pool already underneath the ground! I just saw her the other day and I’m like, "Did you know you had a pool under there?" She was like, "WHAT! I WOULD HAVE CHARGED YOU SO MUCH MORE MONEY!""

Ashley Graham Get Naked

Ashley Graham recently posed naked for V Magazine. Here's what she had to say in the accompanying interview, conducted by Tracee Ellis Ross:

Tracee Ellis Ross: When did you make a decision to love the skin you’re in? Was it something that you found your way to, or was there a particular moment?

Ashley Graham: It would be so much easier to be like, “This is the date, time, and experience I had,” but there really isn’t one. It was more about experiences in my life of devaluing the fact that I was an average, normal girl living in the city. But being told, “You’re fat,” “You’re ugly” or “You’re just not good enough,” and trying to live in these model standards, that was my normal. I think I hit bottom around 18. I was disgusted with myself and told my mom I was coming home. And she told me, “No, you’re not, because you told me that this was what you wanted and I know you’re supposed to do this. It doesn’t matter what you think about your body, because your body is supposed to change somebody’s life.” To this day that sticks with me because I’m here today and I feel that it’s okay to have cellulite.

TER In our culture it’s a big, ugly word, but it’s such a normal part of the human body. As women, we’re taught to see through the eyes of other people instead of our own.

AG I remember my first signs of cellulite, in middle school. I remember telling my mom, “Isn’t it disgusting? It’s so ugly.” She pulled her pants down and said, “Look, I have it, too.” And I was like, “Gasp!” She looked at me, then at it, and just rolled her eyes. She didn’t tell me that it’s beautiful or ugly. She just made it a nonissue. It doesn’t define my worth. If women like you and me continue to preach that, then I feel like younger girls are going to grasp it and they’re going to be like, “Who cares!”

TER Do you have a mantra you say to yourself when things get tough?

AG Absolutely, I have many. I grew up in a very Christian home, so words have power. I took that with me into every area of my life. If you say, “I’m fat,” that’s how you’re going to feel. If you say, “I’m stupid,” that’s how you’re going to start your day. I wake up sometimes and I feel like the fattest person alive, but I’m not going to let that affect the rest of my day. Say to yourself, “I like this day. I am bold, I am beautiful, and I am brilliant.” For me, that hits the interior, the exterior, and it makes me feel smart.

TER What are your thoughts on social media? You use it as a wonderful tool.

AG I think there are negative attachments to it as far as the face tuning and flawless face and big round butt and tiny waist. It’s like, We get it. But I honestly think social media has been a really great platform for young adults that haven’t been accepted. If nobody in their small town looks like them or is doing the same things as them, they can find people on the Internet.

Beauty Tips from Nina Dobrev

Former Vampire Diaries star and ex-girlfriend of Ian Somerhalder Nina Dobrev recently sat down for an interview with People, where she shared some of her beauty tips. Here's what she had to say:

“I like to let the skin breathe and not wear makeup for that reason, because when you keep piling it on the pores get clogged and you’ll break out and then you’ll need makeup. I go to Kate Somerville and get a facial once a month to get all that makeup out, and I use their whole line.

I’m religious about cleaning my whole face, taking the makeup off, putting moisturizer on, putting everything on, especially at night because that’s when your body can regenerate itself. I’ve slept, so that helps with your beauty regimen. Your face and your skin is glowing and fresh so I don’t feel like I need [makeup] as often.”

TV Show Roundup 5/5/17

Casting News:
TV Line reports that Greg Rikaart is leaving Young and the Restless after 14 years with the series.

Netflix's Stranger Things has cast Nashville alum Will Chase in a recurring role for the show's second season, according to TV Line.

Salma Hayek Has Stage Fright

Salma Hayek recently sat down for an interview with HOLA! USA, where she revealed that she suffers from stage fright. Here's what she had to say:

"I suffer from stage fright. No one would know it, but I get it really, really bad. If you take the camera away and put me in front of an audience, I just die. Once I get onto the stage, you can't tell. But then I can't do anything else the rest of the day because I'm so exhausted.”

Claire Holt Getting Divorced

While one Vampire Diaries couple expands, another contracts. People reports that former Vampire Diaries and The Originals actress Claire Holt, 28, is getting divorced after just under a year of marriage. Her husband Matthew Kaplan was the one to file, one day before the couple's first anniversary. The couple did not have any children during their short marriage, so the divorce should be fairly simple.

The World's Most Romantic Couple is Expecting

People reports that The World's Most Romantic Couple Nikki Reed, 28, and Ian Somerhalder, 38, are expecting their first child together. The couple got married in April 2015. True to form, the couple each took to their respective Instagrams to announce the news. One thing is for sure - that baby will be shown a lot of love by its humans...err, parents.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Talk No Talk

There are four very famous celebrities in this blind item!

This singer reacted very differently to two different celebrities when she encountered them at the Met Gala.

We have to admit that we found both interactions intriguing!

The first interaction was with an Athlete.

"She was sitting at the table next to his table.  They were just ignoring each other, but when [His Famous Girlfriend] left the table for a few minutes, he got up and went over to [Pop Singer’s] table. He gave her a hug and they talked for a few minutes. Their conversation seemed friendly. He went back to his table as soon as he saw [His Famous Girlfriend] coming back."

The second interaction was with an Award-Winning Actress.

"[Pop Star] was sitting at her table and [Actress] walked by several times. They both deliberately looked away each time and completely ignored each other."

Why are both of these interactions interesting?

Well, Pop Star and Athlete used to date a long time ago! In fact, he left his wife for the Pop Star. When Pop Star and Athlete broke up, it was so ugly that they never spoke again. Now… friendly!

Pop Star and Actress used to be good friends! They used to work out and hang out together all the time. Now… nothing!

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Newborn Political Activist

This A lister has never been a particularly political person. She's always been a committed liberal and voted, but it was never something done with all that much passion or interest. That is until the last five years when our lady has undergone a radical conversion and become increasingly dedicated to liberal causes.

'Usually people become more conservative as they grow older,' says one source, 'but this case is the polar opposite!'

'She donates thousands and thousands every cycle,' says a Democratic official. 'She never used to.'

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Brad Pitt Sobers Up

Brad Pitt recently sat down for an interview with GQ. Here are some of the highlights:

GQ Style: Let's go back to the start. What was it like growing up where you grew up?
Brad Pitt: "Well, it was Springfield, Missouri, which is a big place now, but we grew up surrounded by cornfields—which is weird because we always had canned vegetables. I never could figure that one out! Anyway, ten minutes outside of town, you start getting into forests and rivers and the Ozark Mountains. Stunning country."

Did you have a Huck Finn boyhood?
"Half the time. Half the time, yeah."

How so?

"I grew up in caves. We had a lot of caves, fantastic caverns. And we grew up First Baptist, which is the cleaner, stricter, by-the-book Christianity. Then, when I was in high school, my folks jumped to a more charismatic movement, which got into speaking in tongues and raising your hands and some goofy-ass shit."

So acting came out of what you saw in these revival meetings?
"Well, people act out. But as a kid, I was certainly drawn to stories—beyond the stories that we were living and knew, stories with different points of view. And I found those stories in film, especially. Different cultures and lives so foreign to mine. I think that was one of the draws that propelled me into film. I didn't know how to articulate stories. I'm certainly not a good orator, sitting here telling a story, but I could foster them in film.

I remember going to a few concerts, even though we were told rock shows are the Devil, basically. Our parents let us go, they weren't neo about it. But I realized that the reverie and the joy and exuberance, even the aggression, I was feeling at the rock show was the same thing at the revival. One is Jimmy Swaggart and one is Jerry Lee Lewis, you know? One's God and one's Devil. But it's the same thing. It felt like we were being manipulated. What was clear to me was “You don't know what you're talking about—”"

And it didn't fuck you up?

"No, it didn't fuck me up—it just led to some eating questions at a young age."

Have you ever felt the need to be more political?

"I can help in other ways. I can help by getting movies out with certain messages. I've got to be moved by something—I can't fake it. I grew up with that Ozarkian mistrust of politics to begin with, so I just do better building a house for someone in New Orleans or getting certain movies to the screen that might not get made otherwise."

You've played characters in pain. What is pain, emotional and physical?

"Yeah, I'm kind of done playing those. I think it was more pain tourism. It was still an avoidance in some way. I've never heard anyone laugh bigger than an African mother who's lost nine family members. What is that? I just got R&B for the first time. R&B comes from great pain, but it's a celebration. To me, it's embracing what's left. It's that African woman being able to laugh much more boisterously than I've ever been able to."

When did you have that revelation? What have you been listening to?
"I've been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean. I find this young man so special. Talk about getting to the raw truth. He's painfully honest. He's very, very special. I can't find a bad one.

And of great irony to me: Marvin Gaye's Here, My Dear [Gaye's touchstone album about divorce]. And that kind of sent me down a road."


"But beautiful—and quite honest.... You know, I just started therapy. I love it, I love it. I went through two therapists to get to the right one."

Do you think if the past six months hadn't happened you'd be in this place eventually? That it would have caught up with you?
"I think it would have come knocking, no matter what.
People call it a midlife crisis, but this isn't the same—
No, this isn't that. I interpret a midlife crisis as a fear of growing old and fear of dying, you know, going out and buying a Lamborghini. [pause] Actually—they've been looking pretty good to me lately! [laughs]"

There might be a few Lamborghinis in your future!

“I do have a Ford GT,” he says quietly. [laughs] I do remember a few spots along the road where I've become absolutely tired of myself. And this is a big one. These moments have always been a huge generator for change. And I'm quite grateful for it. But me, personally, I can't remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn't boozing or had a spliff, or something. Something. And you realize that a lot of it is, um—cigarettes, you know, pacifiers. And I'm running from feelings. I'm really, really happy to be done with all of that. I mean I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know—things I wasn't dealing with. I was boozing too much. It's just become a problem. And I'm really happy it's been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I've got my feelings in my fingertips again. I think that's part of the human challenge: You either deny them all of your life or you answer them and evolve."

Was it hard to stop smoking pot?
"No. Back in my stoner days, I wanted to smoke a joint with Jack and Snoop and Willie. You know, when you're a stoner, you get these really stupid ideas. Well, I don't want to indict the others, but I haven't made it to Willie yet."

I'm sure he's out there on a bus somewhere waiting for you. How about alcohol—you don't miss it?
"I mean, we have a winery. I enjoy wine very, very much, but I just ran it to the ground. I had to step away for a minute. And truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good."

So how do you just drop it like that?
"Don't want to live that way anymore."

What do you replace it with?

"Cranberry juice and fizzy water. I've got the cleanest urinary tract in all of L.A., I guarantee you! But the terrible thing is I tend to run things into the ground. That's why I've got to make something so calamitous. I've got to run it off a cliff."

How are your days different now?

"This house was always chaotic and crazy, voices and bangs coming from everywhere, and then, as you see, there are days like this: very…very solemn. I don't know. I think everyone's creative in some way. If I'm not creating something, doing something, putting it out there, then I'll just be creating scenarios of fiery demise in my mind. You know, a horrible end. And so I've been going to a friend's sculpting studio, spending a lot of time over there. My friend [Thomas Houseago] is a serious sculptor. They've been kind. I've literally been squatting in there for a month now. I'm taking a shit on their sanctity."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Met Gala Actress Plans

This under-30 actress from a famous acting family was at the Met Gala. She was sans her actor beau, with whom she has been in a relationship – on and off – for over a year.

The fact that she was there without him was not unusual. Lots of attendees received invitations that did not include a “plus one.”

She was asked how the relationship was going.

"Her hand was behind her back, so it was unclear if she was wearing a ring or not. The question was about their relationship status. Were they dating/engaged/or what?

She held out her hand with the ring and said, “We’re engaged. I’m planning on getting married in the next year. I don’t know what his plans are.”"

We can’t decide if that response is funny or scary!

Chris Rock Opens Up About Divorce

Chris Rock is on the cover of Rolling Stone. Here are some highlights from the accompanying interview:

Reflecting back on his marriage:
"I wasn't a good husband a lot of the times. (When he finds out the interviewer is married, with a toddler): You got a kid now. You'll be fine. You need each other. Need is big. A woman breaks up with you, the first thing she says is 'I don't need this shit.' She doesn’t say, 'I don't love you,' she says she doesn't need you...My own daughter has blocked me on Instagram. They grow up so quick."

On whether or not he has had a breakdown:
"I never had one. Getting divorced, you have to fucking start over. You get to reset. It's not a breakdown, but something in your life broke down."

When the interviewer notes that his act has gotten less angry over the past few months:
"You might have caught me just coming out of court. I asked myself, 'Do I want to be angry for a year?' It's not a cool place to be. It's not healthy. I'm not Sam Kinison – I loved Kinison, but that's not where I want to hang out every night."

On thinking that he could get away with bad behaviour in his marriage since he was the breadwinner:
"That's bullshit. That actually goes the other way. My faults are magnified. Your significant other, if they really love you, has a high opinion of you. And you let them down...It's not fair. I have a mic, she doesn't. God forbid people are bugging her in the supermarket. That's not cool. I'm going to have to see her at weddings and graduations."

On whether or not he thinks his jokes are tinged with misogyny:
"Most singers have, like, three songs, four songs that they keep writing over and over again. If you're Prince, you might have five or six. So I have four or five jokes. That's how we eat. I would love it to be different."

Amy Schumer Talks Normal Boyfriend

Amy Schumer recently appeared on the Howard Stern Show. Here are some highlights from her appearance:

On boyfriend Ben Hanisch, who she met on the dating app Raya:
"I was only on there for 48 hours. He was my first match. The picture was him dancing with his grandma at like a wedding. It was really cute. There are so many douches on there. Just like, it's like, a lot of shirts off, it's like the guys all have a lot of mandatory shot in Europe where they're holding an old timey camera wearing like a scarf, doing a cannonball off a rock...or a motorcycle pic. He's a normal person. He's a civilian. Ben is a furniture designer, he's not like a famous person or whatever."

On inviting Ben to her apartment for their first date:
"I just was like 'I'm tired,' I had done photo shoots all day and stuff and I was like, 'Can you just come over and have a drink?' And my sister is like, 'You can't have someone over to your apartment, Amy.' So we went to a restaurant. [My sister] keeps me alive. But, by the way, he was there an hour later. So, I don't know what we're worried about."

On showing boob in her new movie Snatched:
"My right tit … full nip. The right one is the star and then my left one's, like, the runner-up. It was planned. Oh yeah, I wrote it in. It's so unnecessary. I just thought it was funny. It felt good to shoot it. Like, it was kind of empowering. Let's have them looked at before they're on the floor."

Morning Joe Co-Hosts Engaged

We can all stop talking about the rumours, because now it's official! Page Six reports that MSNBC's Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough, 54, and Mika Brzezinski, 50, are engaged. Joe popped the question last weekend during a trip to the South of France to celebrate Mika's 50th birthday. A few sources weigh in:

“Joe got down on one knee and proposed old-fashioned-style with a ring. Of course, Mika accepted. They came back from the trip on Cloud Nine. There are no wedding plans as of yet, they are just telling their families the happy news.”

“Mika turned 50 and realized she wanted to move forward with her life and spend every minute with Joe, and not just at work.”

“[Joe]’s had a rough few years with his divorce and the passing of his father, but he’s been the happiest he’s ever been these last few months with Mika.” 

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Going to Be a Father Again

E! News reports that Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 36, and wife Tasha McCauley are expecting their second child together. The couple, married since 2014, are already parents to a baby boy born in August 2015. The notoriously private couple never released their son's name publicly. Gordon-Levitt spoke out about why he protects their son's privacy shortly after his birth, stating:

"Being in the public eye is a great thing. It allows me to do what I love to do, which is act in movies, but it's a choice that I made. My son, he's just a baby, you know? He hasn't made the choice to be in the public eye, and that's a choice that I would like him to be able to make when he's older, when he can think about these kinds of things and make that decision for himself. And so, for now, I'm just a protective dad, and I want to protect his privacy."

Free Skate 5/3/17

A post to discuss your nightly TV shows.

Instagram Pic of the Day 5/3/17

7 years ago today I married my best friend. Every day I fall more in love. I didn't know that was possible. As a kid I didn't dream of getting married. Or fantasize about weddings. Or make up some ideal man to search for in life. In fact, I am pretty sure that little girl Clare said she would never do those things. She wanted to travel the world. Go on adventures. Solve all the mysteries. Love all the people who think they're unloveable. Love all the unloved animals. And then I met him. I knew from the moment we met that he was meant to be in my life. I just had no idea he was meant to be everything in my life. Together we are stronger. Together we are whole. Together we are adventure and love wrapped up in kitties and friendships and always seeing the brightest light in each and every soul. Even if I dared to dream, I could have never dreamed up you, @sethgreen. We are so very lucky. I love you so much. 7 years feels like forever and yesterday at once. Even if I had 70 years with you, it still would not be enough. 💚
