It’s Valentine’s Day, but you already know that. I mean, hopefully you know that or you might find yourself cursing at the computer and making a mad dash to your nearest supermarket to peruse the picked-through cards. And for all people complain about it being a Hallmark holiday, which it is, I don’t really understand why anyone would ever really take issue with a day that is meant to remind people how much you love them. Unless, perhaps, you have experienced the almighty wrath of a woman who has been overlooked on this of all days. Then you, understandably, might be bitter.
There was a photo competition being hosted over at Love All Blogs and I only took the time today to read up about what it was about. It was a link up asking bloggers to post a photo of what they love on their blogs. Unfortunately (and in true Foreigner fashion) the competition ended mid-day today, and since I read it as “midnight,” I’ve missed the competition, but I don’t care (I mean aside from missing out on a free photobook for entering), because I still want to talk about something I love. So, here it is, encapsulated in this little moment of our lives caught on film.
Obvious? Yes. Cheesy? The Cheesiest. But it’s more than just loving two people. I love them together. She beams when he enters a room. She cries when he leaves – even if it’s to go to the kitchen. He has learnt every song (ahem: and dance) to In the Night Garden and performs them every.single.day. just to make her chuckle.
There is something about seeing the one who helped you create a life love that little life to the point of feeling overpowered by the intensity of it. It is brilliant. It fills my heart to brimming every time I witness his love for her, her love for him. Them. Just them. I love this today and every single day.
What is the something you love?
