Love is not a fairytale…it’s so much better than that! It is such a beautiful sentiment to be shared between beings. I used to envision exactly what my love life would be like…and boy was I wrong. I wanted the typical fairytale. I wanted the knight in shining armor. I didn’t envision how that knight in shining armor would show me his love when I’m crying on his shoulder; or how he’d smile when I said something kooky that only the two of us understand because of our shared language; or how he’d cuddle with me at the end of a long day in complete silence, our eyes closed, and I could feel home and safe with him. I never dreamed that my favorite thing to do on a Saturday night would be to curl up in my Broadway themed pj’s (that he gave me) with Chinese food, a movie, and my awesome guy. The small moments are the best; the cute smile shared from across a crowded room just at the exact same moment; the eyes filled with love that are only for you, and even the middle of the night when you’re sick and at your worst…there’s that love who sits up with you and ruins their sleep to make you feel cared for. It doesn’t get any better than that! So…I say that love is in the small moments that build a lifetime of togetherness. I hope I never forget this, because real love is so much more exciting than the fairytale.
Seriously. Where does the time go? I don’t know if you’re like me, but I found myself thinking the other day that I had yet to choose something or make something (and I definitely prefer to make something because it’s so personal and so much fun!) for my cute guy (who deserves it like nobody’s business) AND I WAS LEAVING ON FRIDAY (TODAY) TO GO SEE HIM SO I HAD BETTER FIGURE IT OUT BEFORE HE CAUGHT ME SNOOPING ON THE INTERNET STILL TRYING TO DO SO! I know, I know what you’re thinking…really? You left it to the last minute? Ummm…not really…Like many of you (I’m guessing) I was stumped about what special thing to do for him. You see, we don’t put value into buying expensive gifts for each other or going over the top on one particular day of the year. We’re loving to each other every day, but we figure that Valentine’s Day is still something to be acknowledged regardless. So really…it’s in the sweet things we do for each other that we find solace daily. But…I still like to do fun, cute things for him anyway to truly show my love for him. For those that have not yet figured out what it is they’re doing…or even forgotten that V-day is so close upon us (and they may need two day shipping)…check this out!
