and they lived happily ever after

and when I'm eighty years old, I'm sitting next to you
and we'll remember when we say I do

(Colbie Caillat - I do)

I always, always love seeing old couple together, hand in hand. It makes me hopeful that somehow, someone would be able to love me for the rest of his life, forever. The avid daydreamer in me, of course gets all jittery thinking about it, not to mention the hardcore lover.

So when I found this post over Jesse Holland's site, I can't help but to share it with you guys.

Wine, cheese, and love... these are some of the things that gets better with age, can't agree more. The couple below, had been married for 55 years. Imagine that, 55 years of togetherness and still counting, what can a hopeless romantic in me ask for more? 

Ah, need not I say more. The more I look at the pictures, the more I melt. 

I want to be able to say that I am old and wrinkly and he is too but we love each other the same like we did years ago, maybe even more so. That he looks just the same like a boy that captured my heart years ago, the one who chased after me and still chases after me. 

After all that we've been through, we survived and stay together with endless love streaming everyday.

I want to look at him in the eyes and find the same burning love and passion I found years ago. One that will bring me an ear to ear smile just like it had always been. 

Dare I say that this couple is pretty much a real definition of happily ever after I've always dreamed of. See, it's not impossible after all.
