Life Kiss Photo Reenactment *Smooch*

This link is not dead! I'm settling into a lovely new job (it's temporary but it pays my bills with a little left over to shop on Etsy). I have quite a backlog of things I've been meaning to post.

First things first: Last week, a statue was unveiled in Times Square that shows the famous couple--a sailor and a nurse--kissing after the Japanese surrendered, ending World War II. To celebrate, there was a kiss-in where hundreds of couples gathered to reenact the kiss on Saturday. Saturday marked the 65th anniversary of the end of the war and is celebrated as the Spirit of '45 day. I can't tell you how badly I wanted to go! Cuteness and love abounded, although the real couples in the photo weren't an item and never saw one another again.

  1. I saw this on the news and meant to post on it myself. I agree, it would have been something to be there that day.

    Congrats on the new job! To answer your question about Mad Men, I actually don't get AMC so I usually wait until each season is released on DVD, then gorge on the show for a week. I know a bit of what's going on, though, through my coworkers.

    And this is old news, but a few weeks ago I awarded you a Versatile Blogger award. Congrats!


Thanks so much for your comments!
