May Your Heart Swell And Burst With Love
I know you’re all anxiously waiting for Part II of my “costs of fulltime RVing” series and I promise that I’m very (very) close to finishing it. I’ve been working on that post for the past 4 days, but it’s become a bear of a project (it’s already over 3800 words long!), so I figured I would take a quick break before I unload such a heavy subject on everyone. After all today is a day for fluffy things and professions of undying love, and it wouldn’t be very romantic of me to talk about finances, now would it?
No, today is all about what lies in the heart. Feelings over logic, emotions over thought, and the delicious insanity that comes with being head over heels. And as the type of gal who revels in such things, I couldn’t possibly let this day go by without a few words. Plus today is a rather key day for Paul and I too.
You see I met my eternal love and soulmate in 1995 in the most unromantic way (at work) and it took a while before we realized we were meant for each other. The Universe likes to mess with you sometimes and in our case the first feelings we felt for each other were erhmmm…not love. It took a year of working together for those feelings to morph, first to tepid interest, then to passion and finally to realize we were both head over heels. Less than a month after that monumental discovery we moved in together and a mere 6 months after that I knew there would never be another for me. I asked him to marry me on Valentines Day in 1997 and we’ve literally never looked back.
20 years, my love…and yet it feels like only a few. There is literally no luckier gal than me 🙂
No matter where you find yourself today, be it with others or alone, I hope that you also find yourself surrounded with the wonder of love. Whether it’s the hug of a friend, the snuggle of a pet, the warmth of a sunset, the thoughts of a family member or your very own partner, here’s to a day that makes your heart swell and burst with love. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
