land of and.

&-post One of my favorite symbols is the ampersand. To me, it’s so happy, joining two things together. Peanut butter & jelly. Bananas & Nutella. Guacamole & chips. (Ok, that was all food.)

Fun facts: The ampersand symbol began as a joining of the letters “e” and “t” in old Roman (“et” meant “and” in Roman), and its shape evolved as cursive scripts developed. The word “ampersand” came from the formerly used phrase, “and per se and.”
