I picked up the Holstee Manifesto for my girlfriend. It was something that she introduced me to and she had mentioned that she wanted it in her house some day. I figured, why not just jump that gun and get it for her and frame it for her birthday? I really love the quote because it is one of the most complete pump-up quotes I’ve ever read. The part that stands out to me the most is the part that says, “If you are looking for the love of your life, stop. They will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love.” That is exactly how I met her. We met at a Nero concert in Boston last December. I just had to talk to her and somehow managed to summon the courage to go up to her. That turned out to be the best decision of my entire life. We went to a lot of concerts together after that before we started dating, and after getting to know her a lot more I realized how much we actually have in common. We both love running and run marathons and half marathons together, we both love music, we both love food and cooking. I seriously have found the love of my life and I am going to, seriously, going to marry her. It was the first and only time in my life where I wasn’t looking for a girlfriend, yet I found the last girlfriend I will ever have. I couldn’t have gotten luckier and I still can’t believe it. So when I saw that quote on the Manifesto, it was the one that jumped out to me the most. Thanks for your email and thanks again for being part of one of the coolest grassroots companies I have ever come across. I can promise I will be buying plenty more of your products as time goes on so keep the good stuff coming!!!!!!
