    We absolutely love trail mixes (I know that's corny, LOL!) and decided we wanted to mix up nuts, raisins, orange M&Ms (our wedding color) and put the mix in small mason type jars with a screw up lid...we're going to place them in a box that's filled with shredded recycled paper and tie the box up with a ribbon...so we want to include a thank you note to the box but want something clever...something that would mention "mix" or "trail"...we love quotes but haven't come across anything that mentions either of those words that pertain to love or marriage...any thoughts? maybe we have some writers on here :)

        Hmmm...the only thing I can think of is something like "Sandra & Mario, the perfect mix"

        But I think you want more of a quote...I'll look around...I'm obsessed with quotes too :)

          This one's not really lovey-dovey, but...?

          "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail" Ralph Waldo Emerson

          Still looking....

              Ok...this is hard! But I've never been good at searching...maybe you could make one up; I'm sure there's someone talented on here to help....

              I'm definitely not good at this, but maybe something about the ingredients of love or marriage and mixing them up?

              Love is _______________ all mixed up?

              or something as simple as "Happy Trails! Love, Sandra & Mario"
              I know it's not a quote, but this is my fave!

                  i love quotations too! i thought there'd be a ton about mix or trail, so i looked up unity and joining together and blahblah but there aren't a lot of those too!

                  Here are a few I found that are a little relevant:
                  What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined... to strengthen each other... to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories.
                  ~ George Eliot

                  Marriage is the union of two divinities that a third might be born on earth. It is the union of two souls in a strong love for the abolishment of separateness. It is that higher unity which fuses the separate unities within the two spirits. It is the golden ring in a chain whose beginning is a glance, and whose ending is Eternity. It is the pure rain that falls from an unblemished sky to fructify and bless the fields of divine Nature.
                  ~ Kahlil Gibran

                  Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion
                  that each include the other,
                  each is enriched by the other.
                  ~ Felix Adler

                  I like the last one the most and it seems pretty applicable. I got these from Love Quotes, Famous Quotations, Romantic Love Quotes, You Love to Quote maybe you'll find something else there. I also looked up sand ceremony wording b/c the concept seems similar. Maybe you could play with the wording so it's not a mix of sand but a mix of nuts, raisins, orange M&Ms!

                  Hope that helped.
