And then there's love

"And then there's love. I want you to love to the tips of your fingers, and when you find that love, wherever you find it, whoever you choose, don't run away from it. But you don't have to chase after it either. You just be patient, and it'll come to you, I promise, and when you least expect i...And remember, to love is to live" - Dawson's Creek

ahhhh, valentine's day. the day of hearts and cupids and candy treats...and lots of bitter singletons who love to rant about how dumb the holiday is. and lots of old married folk who love to rub it in people's faces that they don't NEED a holiday to show their love, they do it all the time.  i don't think either side is right at all.

but you know what both these factions have in common?


and without love, life would be a lot more boring.

without love, these sweet dance moves wouldn't mean just as much as the mushy, teary-eyed ones from our wedding.

without love, this would just be a weird picture of hands and slushies...instead of a memento of a blissfully exhausted husband and wife stopping for a little sugary fuel after an epic journey home from the other side of the world.
without love, this is just 2 people in a picture with a hot dog car....instead of another item on a looooooong list of reasons why i adore that man.
without love, this is just a house..instead of a home.

without love...there is nothing.  and not just romantic love. without the love of my family and my friends, i'd never make it through the day.

so today...i'm saying "i love you" even more than usual.

I'm totally with you! Today is all about all kinds of love. And I got lots of it! Plus, there's chocolate. And pink cocktails. How can people hate this holiday? :)
