Love is {on our anniversary}

Wedding day, 2013.

Wedding day, 2013.

Love is late night philosophical talks that turn into giggles. Loving is holding hands as you walk through the frozen food aisle, smiling as if you’re on your very first date. Love is doing the chores the other one thinks are gross.

Love is saying, “I love you now and I love who you’re becoming.” Love is caring for someone else’s well-being more than your ideologies. Love is giving someone the space to reimagine who they are.

Love is sharing and keeping the most sacred of secrets. Love is apologizing and forgiving, again and again. Love is an adventure, a challenge, and a delight.

Love is remembering the little details, the precious details. Love is gutsy and gentle. Love is finding safety in a little world of two.

Love is reading a book together in bed as you listen to the rain against the roof. Love is how you treat me every day. Love is how I feel for you.

I love you very much, sweetheart. Happy second anniversary.

    Don’t shoot me, but you’ve kinda got a John Green quote in there. “We fell in love the way you fall asleep, slowly then all at once.” Beautiful blog though.


    • Haha! I would never shoot you for comparing anything I’ve written to John Green (I’m a fan of his Searching for Alaska book, myself). And it sounds like John Green because I was actually reading through The Fault in Our Stars when I wrote. I liked that idea of falling it love while going to sleep, and was stilling thinking about it when I wrote this. I’d hoped that I’d changed it enough that I wouldn’t need to attribute it. Guess not. Maybe I’ll count your comment as the citation. 😉

        lol. Love both of those books. Remember.. “the fastest way out of the labryinth of suffering is to forgive.” Alaska is quite the feminist herself, I’m loving the blog.


        • I’ve read all of his books, but liked The Fault in Their Stars and Looking For Alaska the most. Wasn’t really a fan of Paper Towns. But An Abundance of Katherines was fun.

          I’m glad you’re enjoying the blog. I appreciate that you take the time to comment, Sylvia. It makes blogging so much more fun when people talk back to me. 🙂


So, what do ya think?
