re·al·ist  (r-lst)

My personal definition: One who believes only in what can be irrefutably proven in the past or present moment.

What happens when Dreamers and Realists fall in love?





There are dreamers and there are realists in this world. You’d think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists, but more often than not, the opposite is true. You see the dreamers need the realists from keeping them from soaring too close to the sun… And the realists? Well without the dreamers, they might never get off the ground.

Dedicated to all the Realist / Idealist couples out there 😉
