I've always been intrigued by the notion of a booth that offers kisses for only a quarter. Is this just a peck on the lips, a sweet and sincere kiss on the cheek, or a weird yet effective kiss in the air? Either way, I give props to the person behind and in front of the booth.
It's love day! A special day set aside to celebrate the passion and beauty of love. The gift of its existence and the sexiness behind this man made national holiday that we all love so much. Flowers are ordered, gifts have been shipped, and special nights are brewing for that special someone. If it seems appropriate to raise both eyebrows in a rapid motion, now would be the time.
What does love mean to you? It could be many things, but I do know it is different for everyone and that is what makes it so unique.
The feelings you have when you spend time with your family. A racing heartbeat when a certain someone comes around, or the way you feel about your little 4 legged friends. The feeling of being connected to someone in ways that speak to the love language you two have created together. Just as good as this day can feel, there are some who can't wait for this celebration of sorts to end. Perhaps you have gone through a failed relationship, or maybe you are grieving over the loss of your loved one. It is safe to say most of us have experienced both at some point in our lives. There is also a strong possibility you simply don't get into the fluff and hoopla of it!
I get into the festivities as much as I feel the need to. It's fun for me, however I am also a hopeless romantic. I'm a sucker for a sappy love story on screen and in real life. I believe in love at first sight and all things that are of this perfect gift from God. Love is expressed daily, not just when the world says we should show it the most. As fortune would have it, I found love within myself, for without it, I wouldn't know what true love should feel like, or more importantly, how to express it.
Happy Valentine's Day! I hope your day and all days are amazing, full of love and happiness from the inside out. My curiosity has gotten the best of me, so I'm headed out in search of this kissing booth. I want to make sure I'm first in line!
