The Top 25 #RelationshipGoals

You've seen the hashtag, now see the top 25 Relationship Goals.

1. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.

2. Queen Clarisse Renaldi and Joe.

3. Beyonce and Jay-Z.

Okay, so actually I'm stopping there. As great as these relationships may seem on camera and in the public eye, they shouldn't be your goals.

Yes, there are some great ideas you could get from these relationships, like how they care about unknown organizations and promote more important things throughout their pictures together like Emma and Andrew. Or how they learn that patience is the key to success in a relationship from the Queen of Genova and Joe. Maybe how you can try to have it all and still might end up getting divorced like Jay-Z and Beyonce (too soon?).

Relationships can't be something modeled after a celebrity couple. It takes hard work and loyalty. All the pictures of #RelationshipGoals are just a reflection of some couple on one of their best days. Not every day is full of flowers and a cute gesture. People will never post how they just had a huge fight or how really boring their date was, people don't want their Instagram to show that. Social Media makes us want to document the best days ever and then post those pictures so it looks like our life is amazing. But that's simply not the truth. We all have struggles and flaws. In a relationship, we have even more struggles and flaws because we give them all to the other person. Next time you see a "relationship goals" photo, don't take it so seriously or wish for something you don't have because although that picture seems great, there is a bigger story to be had behind each photo.

Instead of looking for photo qualities, look for actual qualities. I know it's cliche, but think about how important it is to know:

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Our love is called to a higher standard because its more satisfying to have a good love worth waiting for than to accept the love of someone who is just present in the moment. Attraction can come easily between two people, but a love that extends beyond all expectations... that's hard.

A true #relationshipgoal is to be the type of person, the person you want to marry, would be. When your old and grey, looks won't be there. Fall in love with someone for their personality and their character.

And if you finish each others sandwiches, then thats a plus (but we all know that he was a poser)...

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
