i love valentine’s day.

IMG_6812paperchainblog

it might be because of the long-stemed love that comes to the door via special delivery or the sparkly surprise that comes in the small tiffany’s box. i might love valentine’s because of the heart-shaped boxes filled with nuts and chews or the little love notes that are found in my inbox, my mailbox, and later my keepsake shoebox, throughout the day.

i love making reservations for a surprise romantic dinner. and i love the look on his face when i open the door and he see’s me all ready to be the girl on his arm all. night. long.

it’s good to celebrate love, all levels of it.

i know we associate valentine’s with ooey-gooey, mushy-wushy love, but i think it can be a day to celebrate love plutonic, love spiritual, love friendly, love neighborly, love sincere, love pure, and love sweet.

my man, used to write me poems, all the time. they would show up in cool places like my wash basin in the bathroom, the seat of my car, in my purse, inside a romantic card. he doesn’t write them as often now because he is busy with his mba program and the family and responsibilities, but the ones i do have are special to me. when i read them it makes me feel like it’s valentine’s day, even if it’s march 6th or august 8th or any other random day. they make me feel appreciated, valued, respected, beautiful, and deeply and truly loved.

i love to be with couples who feel the same way:

it’s good to have a day to celebrate love, to give it a proper shout out. for sure. but i think cupid fires his bows every. single. day. making valentine’s day, really when you think about it, every day. why don’t i get little turquoise boxes with black ribbons every day then? i’m just sayin…

whitney: a beautiful box with so many metaphorical bows.

(just dangling the carrot…put june 26th on your calendars. a kickin’ it workshop is going to be in southern california and these two and all their hotness are going to be the models. these two plus a professional stylist; you won’t believe what is in store for the ca workshop. perhaps a ticket to kick it could be the sparkly inside your little tiffany’s box for valentine’s this year??? just a thought. fire me off an email to reserve your spot.¬†details coming soon…)

a memory of their first date that will one day be a family treasure:

whit and drew: i love you guys. you know. the kind of love where you would do anything for the person. the kind of love that makes you smile and get emotional just thinking about the other people. the kind of love that makes you happy when you see their faces. the kind of love that makes you proud. the kind of love that waits excitedly for the next visit. the kind of love that appreciates and is grateful. that kind of love. the kind of love that never goes away. no matter what.

may you love each other more today than yesterday. may you know that my family and i love you both so much.

may valentine’s always come in some small way every day.

love you, kam
