Love is a great adventure.
If you sit down and take it in.
And I mean all kinds of love. really. The huge grand kind of love that I believe makes everything ok.
Sometimes the most beautiful things happen to remind you that your 12 o clock dentist appointment is a dumb concern.
by the way. no cavities. I begged that they would just ignore anything shady.
but they didn't have to.
Isn't it funny how all of a sudden for those 30 min it becomes real that the only life concern you have is - DO I FLOSS ENOUGH.?! GOD TELL ME I DO.
so back to love. the big kind:
I watched a sweet toddler randomly select and snuggle into the lap of a shy 13 year old girl on her first day of theater class. he didn't know her. he had no judgement. he just honestly wanted to sit with her.
and she lifted her head up. and felt more comfortable. and felt important.
My friend called and just listed everything we love. for a good 3 minutes. that is all the message was.
just words. of things we like.
I thought it was over and then heard...
"oh yeah. carnivals. bizarres. ferris wheels. and yellow gold. BYE"
I adored the message. it made today better.
and I have a friend that texted me this morning. Because she bought some art from me. But wanted it to go to someone else. out of the goodness of her heart.
Tell me something you saw or something that happened to you. That made you realize this.
that love wins.

And if you hate Valentine's day. you just hate the dumb part of it. shake it off.
and remember. it's really about love.
Although. I have nothing against a giant heart balloon with streamers for arms and legs.
see I have a love for holidays that is non-discriminating and maybe I was trained this way growing up. finding themed holiday socks on the kitchen table when I got home from school.
and I have a love of ridiculous.
I think most things ridiculous. are fantastic.
But I want to hear from you. about beautiful things. that celebrate love.
The kind of things that you witness that make you squint your eyes and throw your hand on your heart.
