Today is allegedly the most romantic day of the year. The 14th of February (Valentines Day) is named after Saint Valentine who was a third-century Roman saint who has been associated with love since the High Middle Ages. Nothing is reliably known of St. Valentine except his name and the fact that he died on February 14th but I digress ....
The Lilypad has been blessed to share some personal guest posts over the last 13 days about what our friends think that Love Is ....
So what do I think Love Is ..... ?
It is considering someone else other than myself.
It is not having to be perfect but being perfect for that someone.
It is sharing your bed with your children when they need you.
It is finding a gorgeous pair of shoes in the sale .... that are just your size. (I personally love it when this happens)
It is Saturday nights in with the family, rather than Saturday nights out on the town.
It is creating a school costume in a matter of hours because they neeeeeeeed it for tomorrow.
It is finding a fantastic bespoke offer online that is the perfect gift for Valentines.
It is still being kissed in the morning, despite your snoring keeping them awake in the night.
It being the first person they turn to when they are hurt or upset.
It is having a cold shower because the children have used all the hot water.
It is reading "another" story before bedtime.
It is butterflies in your stomach.
It is sharing excitement.
It is laughter.
It is not about one day in the year, it is every single day.
For the avoidance of doubt, we were asked to review from the Bespoke Offers site, without obligation and as we loved the concept, thought it fitted perfectly into this post.
