Cheek, Kiss, Cheek, Kiss

I found this photo while on a date with my boyfriend– it was on a bench outside of a bookstore. He broke up with me later that night. I hope their love lasts longer than ours.

Lame Andrew

I found this treasure in a library book on love in Dante’s Paradiso. It made my research process much more enjoyable and entertaining.
