Britt, my wife, is a staunch advocate for uncorny everything. She checks everything I post on social media and on this blog just to make sure something corny doesn’t slip through.
So it’s in her uncorny fashion that she emailed me this list of awesome quotes about love that she felt were really uncorny. And she said I should blog them for everyone else. So here they are. Love you baby![hr]
