Love is in the Air

Love is in the air.

Love is everywhere.

What is love?

Love is the emotion of strong affection and personal attachment. In philosophical context, love is a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection. Love may also be described as actions towards others (or oneself) based on compassion.Or as actions towards others based on affection. The word love can refer to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from generic pleasure (“I loved that meal”) to intense interpersonal attraction (“I love my partner”). “Love” can also refer specifically to the passionate desire and intimacy of romantic love, to the sexual love of eros, to the emotional closeness of familial love, or to the platonic love that defines friendship, to the profound oneness or devotion of religious love. This diversity of uses and meanings, combined with the complexity of the feelings involved, makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, even compared to other emotional states.***

To feel loved, to be loved and to love is one of the greatest feelings of all. I have been in such a great mood today and I think it’s because I can feel the love all around me.

I’ve seen love in the morning sun.

I’ve seen it in my breakfast

I’ve seen the love in the girls I nanny for…through their eyes, for me

In their lunch we made at the park

The love I have for myself apparently because I took about 10 of these while driving

In the flowers I received from my wonderful boyfriend

and of course in a Valentines snack

Where have you seen love today?

Whatever you do, whoever you’re with and wherever you may be just remember that love is everywhere. It’s not about having a significant other – if you don’t have a special someone to share this day with – love yourself, your pet, your life and maybe make yourself a special dessert tonight.

and eat the whole thing 🙂

I’ve also reminded myself that this isn’t the only day to show someone you love them…but maybe just make it extra special today! I see love everyday in my family, my boyfriend, my friends, my job, and of course all of you who read my blog. I don’t say it enough but I appreciate each and every one of you who read my blog and take time to comment on them daily. You guys are the best and make me feel LOVED!

I hope everyone has a beautiful day and shows some love to at least one person today.
