be my valentine
Happy Valentine's Day!
It was all about the flowers this morning. Oh, and the chocolate. The kids got their own but I'm going to let them eat mine,too. Because, you know, bikini season is coming up.
I indulged Mr. M's secret passion for red roses
and he presented me with this beautiful bouquet
So is love measured by how many flowers one gives or receives over a life time? I don't think so. There's a lot more to it than that, as we all know. We just happen to like having a house full of flowers and in Germany they're so reasonable that you can buy a few bunches a week and still have enough moola left over to pay the rent, so why not?
There are a lot of self-love Valentine's Day posts going around this year and I truly agree that before you can love anyone else you have to learn to love yourself first. Not always easy, but so essential.
I want you all to go look in the mirror and tell yourselves how fabulous you all are. And THEN I want you to go grab a handy loved one and tell him or her how fabulous he/she is. No loved one within arms reach? A mental message will do just fine. Just thinking positive thoughts about someone else can work wonders.
Spread the love and have a wonderful Valentine's Day. *smooooch*
