Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! It’s a beautiful day, the sun is shining and love is in the air. Was that too cheesy? Who cares, it’s Valentine’s Day!
I am a sucker for love stories, love movies… you name it. I am also a very sensitive and emotional person. I believe in sharing feelings, and one thing I share with the ones close to me is saying I love you. Nic and I say it everyday and after every phone call, and the same goes with my parents and family. We say it because we mean it, not because it’s a force of habit. We say it because it’s important to remind the people you love that you love them. It’s also important to remind those that are close to us that we love them, care about them and keep them in our hearts today and always.
I am lucky to be spending another valentine’s day with Nic. The minute I met him years ago, I knew he was the one. There was no doubt in my mind. I knew I loved him, and I knew I always wanted to remind him how much I loved him. That’s why saying it to one another never gets old and never will get old. Instead, saying it every day always gives me butterflies and feels like the first time. I know that feeling won’t ever go away.
Valentine’s Day isn’t just a day to celebrate love with your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband or wife (although, that is one reason for celebration). It’s a day to celebrate love in general. To celebrate being in love, feeling loved and making others feel loved.
Flowers and chocolate are sweet, but to me, what’s most important is telling those you love that you love them and giving them a hug, a kiss or a simple phone call. Use this day to fill your heart and other hearts with love.
In honor of today, here are a few of my all-time favorite love quotes:
“You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest, and most beautiful person I have ever known—and even that is an understatement.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald
“And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.” ― Kiersten White, The Chaos of Stars
“Yours is the light by which my spirit’s born: – you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.” ― E.E. Cummings
“When I saw you, I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.”― William Shakespeare
I hope you all have a wonderful day and feel loved, because you ARE loved.
