(Okay, I know I didn’t follow Kat’s instructions to “pick one title…or a few or all…and tell [her] the story behind the words.” But I guess I just felt like being a bit rebellious today. I hope Kat won’t punish me by not including me in her round-up next week!)

“There’s nothing like this back in the States, that’s for sure,” Alan said.

“I’m so glad you convinced me to take our ski trip in Switzerland this winter,” Karen said.

“I just want to make you happy,” he told his wife.
