one more from Winnie the Pooh

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh," he whispered.

"Yes, Piglet?"

"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw, "I just wanted to be sure of you."

After deliberating over several Pooh quotes, H-town and I settled on this one to begin our wedding ceremony.

I have a habit of saying "Hi" out of the blue even if H-town and I have been sitting next to each other for hours. I also like to whisper even when we're alone together. I'm definitely the Piglet in the relationship.

(I smiled all over when I saw that Peonies and The Boy included this Pooh quote in their ceremony.)

  1. OMG. I do the same... but i never had an answer to why. Pooh and Piglet can be so insightful at times!

  2. so simple but so how is.
    loved it when I was a kid, maybe time to rediscover

  3. this was sweet!

    ps thank you for the mention : )

  4. good to know i'm not the only one with the random hellos and pointless whispers. now i can tell da hubs i am NOT crazy.

  5. Winnie the Pooh has always had a very special place in my heart, and I've oft considered including one of these quotes in our ceremony. Peonies' quote would be even more appropos because Hunter has CONSTANTLY got fluff in his ears ;)

  6. Me too! With the whispering and the occasional seemingly random hellos.

    I'm so very grateful to you for finding the Pooh quote we used. It was my favourite bit of our ceremony!

  7. I was just told I'm like this too.

    I love this.

  8. I do this whispering and helloing too. And the bit from Winnie-ther-Pooh is nice.

    (p.s. Hi *little wave*)

  9. That quote, and the idea of using in your ceremony, made me catch my breath! SOOOO sweet.

  10. oh, i also found the qoute on peonies and polaroids and loved it! yours is sweet, too. hopefully these quotes sound as sweet in german as they do in english, than maybe i will use one myself :-)
