I am working on doing some budget decorating around my house, and I want to do a few “word art” type prints to hang up. To give you an idea of what I mean, this one I plan to hang in my home office:
And I plan to print this for a gallery wall I’m doing (these are the dates of our first date, engagement date, date we moved into our own home, and wedding):
I have one more large frame I’d like to fill with a quote for the gallery wall. Something about life/love that isn’t toooo sappy. And it is driving me crazy because I had one in mind when I thought of doing this months ago, but now I forgot! lol. So, give me your best short quote that would be right for hanging in a home.

If I had anything, I’d have the famous Dorothy Parker quotation:
I like a good martini, two at the very most.
After three I’m under the table,
After four I’m under the host.
I’d have it by our cocktail cabinet.

But my husband thought it was a little inappropriate lol

@CorgiTales: Thankfully, anyone who makes it inside our house either knows that we’re a rather saucy pair or is related to us and has to put up with it anyway.

@Eva Peron: lol Thoreau is my nemesis (ok… not really… but MAN Walden’s Pond was a looooong book to get through in hs)

If your life is tied up worrying about the future, you never enjoy what’s possible right now.
Be in the moment..

I thought I’d update with what I went with. I asked my husband and he said we should each do music related quotes and put a his/hers thing up there. So we both picked quotes with the same thing (mine is dave matthews, his is nikki sixx). I kinda love it:

I wouldn’t hang this on my wall as art, but it’s my favorite:
When I was in high school, I was watching an episode of Flavor of Love and heard Flavor Flav said,
“If it don’t apply, let it fly”
People can judge me all they want for liking a quote from a trashy reality show but whatever 🙂 I live by that quote because I work in customer service, and sometimes I just have to remind myself not to take other people’s crap personally.
