The Loves of My Life.

Happy, happy Valentine's Day!

I know this particular holiday can be a little loaded for some, but what I love about V-Day is that it doesn't have to be solely about romantic love. Our friends, our families, our pets. If you look around, I think you'll notice love everywhere and that, if nothing else, is worth celebrating. Right? Right.

So, in honor of St. Valentine, I want to share
with you some of the loves of my life.

There's this handsome feller. The silliest goofball who loves me for me and makes me laugh every single day.

There are the friends who will pick up the phone at 4am when you call them hysterically crying. These are the people who threaten to beat a mean, scary girl down for you (thank you, Katie), cut in when the nerdiest boy in school asks you to dance just to save you (still the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me, Carina) and promise to always do their French girl dance just to make you laugh (there's really nothing funnier, Danny).

There are the people you are lucky enough to have as your family
because you would have chosen them for your best friends anyway.

There are the people you loved before you ever knew them, before they were even born. There was a space in my heart waiting for these two little boys, reserved just for them, always. When they were born, it wasn't a "nice to meet you" moment. It was an "of course it's you - I've been waiting so long for you to arrive."

And then there's the kind of love that makes us who we are. Loving this woman is as intrinsic to my existence as breathing. I think her soul must have known mine before I was her daughter, just as I must have known hers long before she was my mom. Cheesy? Probably, but it's true. And it's Valentine's Day. So there.

Happy, happy day. Thanks for letting me share.
I hope today is filled with love, great food and a big ol' glass of bubbly.
