an uber-sweet post for a sweet-kinda day...

So, those of you who know me know that I am not a huge fan of good ol' v-day...but you also know very well that I - like my brother - am a hopeless romantic at heart. I love a good laugh, a good cry (even more so!) and - most of all - I am in love with the very notion of love. That's why I am so passionate about everything I do. That's why I live in Europe - I love Europe. I love travel. I love life. Ahhhh, tangent-flying time...

That's why, when my fantastic bro posted this video on his blog a while ago, it caught my eye and has kept my attention. Not only is it a gorgeous expression of creativity, which I - of course - adore, but the story is so real...so simple...so sweet. It's inspiring. It's LOVE. Isn't it a wonderful thing?

As this loathed hallmark-built up holiday (blog note: check out the comment left below by my beautiful friend Boo about the origin of Valentine's Day - super-sweet!) quickly approaches, just know I am thinking about you all every single day...not just one day because it's tagged as a special day for expressions of love by some greeting card company (although, I do LOVE and appreciate the cards). I love you all gobs and am so blessed to have you in my life!

Sorry for the sap. Live with it. Love it.

LOVE,

me

  1. I cried watching that... oh sigh... Valentine's Day came from the SAINT, not from the Hallmark, though Hallmark has blown it out of proportion, of course. But it wasn't straight-up invented by the card company, unlike some other holidays (Sweethearts Day in October?). My favorite story about how it started is that St. Val was stuck in jail and he wrote love letters that he signed "From your Valentine" and that's how it all got started... so even I like it as a day to send love notes... or have margaritas with my PC friends who are all in my same boat... I love you Megsie.

  2. LOVED it! Thanks for sharing. Remember the valentines we used to hand out to all the cute boys at ski races?
