Happy Valentines' Day Loves

Today is a day of love, and I always tell people, "I love love!" Watching old couples is a guilty habit of mine - they're just so cute! This past weekend, my grandparents did a dance as a part of the couples' ministry at their church. They were so adorable. They danced to the song, "Everytime I Close My Eyes" by Babyface. They have been married for 58 years, and they're just a model couple. They still greet each other with a kiss whenever they first see each other.

This year, I have no "real" valentine for the first time in 4 years. *My dad did get me a card which was nice, and my brother also said, "Sis, I'm here for ya if you need a shoulder!"* Although I would love to be cuddling up to someone tonight ;-) - this year I am reflecting on all the other loves in my life. That includes my family, friends, and God. Whether you're single, boo'd up, going through something complicated - focus on love today, because there's love somewhere in your life! Here are some of the people I love...

Clearly I can't include everyone here, so here are just some shout-outs to some of my faves - love you guys!
