Yesterday was Valentine’s Day. This week I helped you write your names on valentine cards but before I know it you’ll be on your first date. Love truly is an amazing creature. As you collect life experiences, love comes with you for the ride. It grows with you, matures and changes and thankfully, there is always enough to go around. When I was young, I thought I knew what love was. Wild and overwhelming I tried to wrap my hands and heart around it. When I met your Dad, I realized that love is much more complicated and most of the time much less exciting. But it is the most comforting feeling in the world when you meet your equal and decide to share your life with him. Then I had you girls and I realized that I never knew what love was because the love of your children truly is the most powerful and terrifying feeling in the world.
So love large and often my girls! Most of all, do not be afraid to love because there is lots to go around and your heart is resiliant. Love the world, your friends, your family and most of all yourself and you will have a wonderful life I’m sure!
Love and kisses!
PS. Margot is the star of the show this month but there is one of both girls for good measure. I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from January.
