kisses are a better fate
than wisdom. e.e. cummings

Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves. ~Albert Einstein

(anyone who went to USU will understand the significance of this particular kiss)

I can express no kinder sign of love, than this kind kiss. from Henry VI -- William Shakespeare

Brightest truth, purest trust in the universe
In the kiss of one girl.
-Robert Browning

Kissing is like drinking salted water. You drink, and your thirst increases. ~Chinese Proverb
(our great friends Drew and Jessica Merryweather)

"Mine ain't a selfish affection, you know," said Mr. Toots, in the confidence engendered by his having been a witness of the Captain's tenderness. "It's the sort of thing with me, Captain Gills, that if I could be run over - or - or trampled upon - or - or thrown off a very high place -or anything of that sort - for Miss Dombey's sake, it would be the most delightful thing that could happen to me."
(my brother Wyatt and his wife Lindsay)

I married the first man I ever kissed. When I tell this to my children they just about throw up. ~Barbara Bush
(my sister Kami and her husband Leonardo)

Sweet springtime is my time is your time is our time for springtime is love time and viva sweet love.- - - -e e cummings

These last two pictures are of my mom and dad.

One time my dad was driving some of my friends home and my friends were arguing about whether trumpet players or french horn players were better kissers. My dad said, "It doesn't matter. If you've got it, you've got it. And Rasmussens have it."

One time my dad and mom spent a weekend away, and when they got back my dad had a BIG hickey on his neck. When I mentioned it, (silly him, came in to breakfast before buttoning up his shirt collar), he said he got in a car accident.

I remember my Dad chasing my mom around the house in Minot and Mom yelling "You can't give me a hickey, I'm the Relief Society President!"

Okay, so everyone's assignment is to post a picture of a kiss. Any variety. Then leave a comment so we can all go check it out. Have a nice day! :)

Kayli, is that Leo and Kami...umm, I was going to say kissing, but that wouldn't be helpful. They are sitting on a bench with a tree behind them, and she is in a red shirt? Just curious. I love all the quotes and stories! Funny, since we were talking about parents when I was on a date last night, and we started talking about how much affection for each other our parents show, and I think our parents are very unique. I love it. Lindsay

Lindsay, that isn't me, that Jessica and Drew, as it says beside the picture. Silly. Anyway I don't have to post a picture, you already posted one for me, which by the way is my favorite wedding photo. But my quote is, "I have found men who didn't know how to kiss. I've always found time to teach them."
~ Mae West. It wasn't very romantic. But I found it amusing.:)

This is all just too funny! I'm not much for PDA's, but John is like very anti-PDA's. If I really wanted to put in the time and effort to dig out a picture of one of us kissing the other on the cheek I probably could, but too much is going on in life right now so you won't be getting one. Sorry! I do love my husband though, and yes, we do kiss.

Well, it would've been helpful to have it labeled Drew and Jessica, except that when I bring it up on my computer, the clips don't correlate with the pics, as I noticed with the Aggie joke, and it wasn't next to the kissing on the A. Anyway, thanks!

I don't have a kissing picture. (I always end up laughing when we try to take one. Maybe that will be a goal of mine this summer - to take a kissing picture with my hubby!) (Ambitious, huh?) Anywho, my favorite kissing quote is one an apron I made years ago, before I was even married:

"Kissin' don't last, cookin' do."

Lance always smooches me at the most inopportune moment when I cook in it.
