And if you would have told me a few years ago I’d be saying that, I would have kindly asked you to go slaughter me out back.
Not even kidding. I never thought I’d be THAT GIRL who talks about deep, mushy feelings and caring so deeply for someone else. It’s not that I’m a cold-hearted wench, it’s that I’ve never been the type to shout my affections from the rooftops. In some senses, I’m still not. Ask Dane how I feel about PDA or being overly cheesy.
This picture reminds me of a scene straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting. Little did I know, I was about to freeze my buns off on a half-assed Canadian ghost tour. Ah crikey, $1 in the “No Swearing During Lent” jar.
In any case, I’ve found love and it feels good. Which is certainly not to say that I didn’t have love before. I mean my God, what’s not to love about this?
Yes, that would be my parents enjoying some quality time with the Mac Photobooth app the night before I moved to Detroit. If that doesn’t say love, I don’t know what does.
And if it’s unconditional love you’re searching for, I suggest you look into pet ownership. I mean, seriously, people. THAT FACE! What you don’t see in this photo is the food I was eating that she was so desperately hoping I’d drop. Irrelevant details, because THAT FACE!
But what about you? What about my
fake internet friends loyal blog readers? I love you all, too. And I say that earnestly, because at this time last year I had about 11 blog readers and 9 of them were family members. That’s not to say that the 475 of you who follow always read, but I can pretend you do, right? I kid, I kid. I know you do, because your comments, e-mails, and the ACTUAL REAL LIFE RELATIONSHIPS I have formed continue to inspire and educate me daily.
And because Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to take relationships to the next level, you can read all about sponsoring here.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
*for the record, I love LOVE, but I despise Valentine’s Day. I don’t buy into a commercial holiday when you should tell people you love them 365 days a year. But any excuse for me to use cute stationery, I suppose.
