Today’s blog is inspired by two people I’ve never met, but who I have had the pleasure of being “introduced” to by my good friends, Wanda and Brian, at Studio67, who speak so amazingly highly of them that you can’t help but feel the same way.
You know how you feel like you know somebody, even if you’ve never met them, by the way someone else close to you speaks about them? This is precisely the case with Marta and Brock and I. As an avid Studio67 Blog visitor, I watched Marta and Brock’s Same Day Edit the day it was released on Wanda and Brian’s website, and I instantly fell in love with the details. I loved the story, I loved the elements, I loved the animals. I loved the reading by Taylor Mali, Falling In Love Is Like Owning A Dog….
First of all, it’s a big responsibility,
especially in a city like New York.
So think long and hard before deciding on love.
On the other hand, love gives you a sense of security:
when you’re walking down the street late at night
and you have a leash on love
ain’t no one going to mess with you.
Because crooks and muggers think love is unpredictable.
Who knows what love could do in its own defense?
On cold winter nights, love is warm.
It lies between you and lives and breathes
and makes funny noises.
Love wakes you up all hours of the night with its needs.
It needs to be fed so it will grow and stay healthy.
Love doesn’t like being left alone for long.
But come home and love is always happy to see you.
It may break a few things accidentally in its passion for life,
but you can never be mad at love for long.
Is love good all the time? No! No!
Love can be bad. Bad, love, bad! Very bad love.
Love makes messes.
Love leaves you little surprises here and there.
Love needs lots of cleaning up after.
Sometimes you just want to get love fixed.
Sometimes you want to roll up a piece of newspaper
and swat love on the nose,
not so much to cause pain,
just to let love know Don’t you ever do that again!
Sometimes love just wants to go for a nice long walk.
Because love loves exercise.
It runs you around the block and leaves you panting.
It pulls you in several different directions at once,
or winds around and around you
until you’re all wound up and can’t move.
But love makes you meet people wherever you go.
People who have nothing in common but love
stop and talk to each other on the street.
Throw things away and love will bring them back,
again, and again, and again.
But most of all, love needs love, lots of it.
And in return, love loves you and never stops.
You can read / see all about Marta and Brock’s special day, Studio67-style, on their blog, here!
As I became (pseudo-)acquainted with who Marta and Brock were (via their wedding details), they were kind enough to find me on Facebook, and compliment the work I do. It was after this that I began to notice the work that they do professionally (and passionately!) and became completely inspired! As the co-founders of Fit For Two TV, Brock and Marta spend their days inspiring others to live life differently, appreciate one another wholly, and push each other beyond previously-established limits.
Not only do Brock and Marta push one another to achieve new goals, live healthier lives, and inspire eachother, they do this for others! Via their online blogs, vlogs, and in-person appearances, these two self-proclaimed health addicts are doing their part to share the (health) love by disseminating tips, tricks, and ideas on getting healthy, living healthy, and staying healthy, together.
Here is their latest Vlog posting, as a testament to what they do:
Just as WG is known and loved for sharing all-things-wedding, I put forth this all-things-health as a source of inspiration for all of you.. .all of us… who only get one chance to do it right with our health – so we may as well start now! (and what better way to do it than with these two lovebirds cheering us along!)
Thanks, Marta and Brock, for being such an inspiration.. without even realizing it!
(and the entire WG family!)
