Happy Valentine’s day

Fall in LOVE Fridays 
on LOVE’s most celebrated day

Here’s an inspiring love story ~
you never know who they are, where they’re from, or when they’ll come into your life, 
but when they do you I wish you the openness to fall madly in love 

I first heard their story in a great collection of LOVE stories from Storycorps, worth checking out if you’re a fan of true life tales from the heart like me 😉
With love, have a great day!

Itching for some hand holdin…

Well, hello again! 
Life has kept me on my toes lately, a go, go goin…but as I’m winding down the
weekend & enjoying my peaceful Sunday afternoon I thought I’d share 
the latest musings going through my head…

First, I have to say, I have been craving a hand to hold on to!
Its one of those innocent yet intimate moments that I’ve been missing lately.
I get a sense of security, of nurture, of support when my hand is held ~
I guess, all feelings that I’m needing fulfilled with life’s chaos these past couple of weeks.
Really looking forward to some serious hand holding one of these days!!

A friend & I were talking the other day and she asked me WHAT exactly am I looking for in a relationship?
Grand romantic gestures? Commitment levels – marriage? Long term?
What’s it look like to me?
Of course this got me thinking, as it was hard to put in to words at that moment.

I think we’re all pretty aware by now that I’m a hopeless romantic, but when I thought more about it, its not the big romantic gestures that make me swoon, its the thoughtful notes or texts, just saying “hi, thinking of you”.

I like the idea of pure partnership.
I know it won’t always be sunshine & rainbows, 
but I love the idea of knowing someone is there for me & I for him.
A relationship where we each love the other for who they are, for their quirks & all, and we’re free to be exactly who we are.
Having a trust in one another that neither of us is going anywhere anytime soon if some bumps arise.
Knowing that someone is there to cheer along side you when life is groovin & to hug you when its throwing tomatoes at you…
So, yep Universe that’s what I’m looking for 🙂

I was introduced to StoryCorps a couple of years ago while listening to the radio & immediately was hooked!
Hearing people tell their stories is just amazing ~ when you take the time to stop & listen, tune out the noise & just experience their stories along with them, it is so rewarding and fascinating!
This is really what life is about ~ connecting & loving others.

Enjoy this animated story clip from Danny & Annie Perasa ~
I can only hope to find the love & partnership like they share…
they’re a real life version of “UP” 🙂
Have a great week ahead!!
