THE BEST GIFT I EVER RECEIVED

This Marcel the Shell shirt is so special to me (you should watch it if you haven't seen it). First of all, it is what it is. An airbrushed shirt featuring one of my favorite internet creations of all time. But most of all, I love it because Douglas commissioned this airbrush artist from the mall to make it for me. He surprised me with it when I drove to Charleston one weekend to visit him. It's a wonderful reminder of that time in our relationship, when we only had one weekend together each month, and we lived off of skype and phone calls. It all makes this quote feel very relevant: Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” ― Epicurus

  5. Just found your blog through Love Elycia. I love it! I showed Dominick (My boyfriend) this shirt and his mouth dropped and his eyes got all big. He then proceeded to talk like Marcel. Hahahaha.
