For most people - yesterday was a "love day". Valentines, candy hearts, little love notes. But for me? Today is a love day. Today, 13 years ago, Mike and I had our very first real date. We went to Krolls West. Hamburgers and milkshakes. The beginning of my lifes great love affair.
I could not have imagined that this boy would become the father of my baby. That his energy would pull me through dark days and his laughter and attitude would make my best days better. This isn't about love songs and candy grams. It is the truth that love is ugly sometimes, not wrapped in a ribbon or capped off with a fancy dinner. It is the person that when you are throwing up, struggling, or just plain mad is the one pushing you past the negative and into the normal.
Happy love day Mike. My quote?
Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your heart or burn down your house, you can never tell. Joan Crawford.
