Day 33: Daily Words




Love This: Love Ever After Project by Lauren Fleishman

{via}

Oh, happy heart. We love this. So much. Photographer Lauren Fleishman is seeking support for her Love Ever After Project. An amazing photographic retrospective that captures the images and stories of couples that have been married for fifty years or more. These are the love stories that will never have a Facebook timeline or blog to capture the span of many decades of life and love. Lauren is capturing the stories for these couples, their families, and for all of us.

{the project} 
Love Ever After will share the love stories of couples who have been married for at least 50 years. Inspired by a letter my grandfather wrote to my grandmother during World War II (and rediscovered after he passed away in 2007), I began photographing and interviewing couples in the New York area as a way to preserve their stories and to illuminate our universal experience of love.

Check out her personal site for more information and read the story about the cute couple pictured above., plus plenty of other old-fashioned and happy love stories to fill your own heart and inspire you. And you can continue the inspiration and love story by helping to fund her kickstarter campaign.
