With Valentine’s Day around the corner and the bombardment of all things red, heart-shaped, and love-inspired, I was thinking about what love means to me.
I don’t need or want a diamond bracelet or a trip to Paris or a 5-course dinner that will set us back a few hundred dollars.
I don’t need the grand gesture. I love the just because…
Just because I saw a purple sweater that made me think of you.
Or my favorite! I was running errands and saw your car at your writer’s meeting so I put a bouquet of roses on your front seat…just because.
Not for a birthday, an anniversary, or holiday. Just because.
As the beautiful quote says, paraphrasing here, it isn’t the moments that take your breath away, it is the moments that make you catch your breath.
Jill James, a true romantic at heart…every day of my life.
