When I hit puberty I thought love was all about kissing and having butterflies in your stomach.
When I grew up a little I replaced kissing with sex and the butterflies remained.
Now the definition has changed in all ways possible. I've learned that there isn't just the romantic Love there is more to it.
It could be the heart swelling when you see your child do something or the smile you have when you think of your parent. This year I've decided that my daughter is my valentine. Sleepless nights and the constant anxiety are all totally worth it. The sloppy kisses that I get on rare mornings are my greatest motivator.
To me love is all about the level of comfort I have with a person. You really love each other if you can fart and burp to your heart's content in each other's company. If you can have conversations about that then you are in the next level, haha!
Everybody sees love differently but most would agree on the comfort part. My friend Srilakshmi and I see things differently but this level of comfort is what we both agree upon.
It's all in the little things really. Like having a lazy day together like this! (I am mentioned in the story and I'm totally excited)
I found the perfect recipies for lazy valentine's days. No bake strawberry cheesecake and eggless whole-wheat brookies. Made these for my valentine and she loved it! I wish I could send some to Srilakshmi to have another lazy day with her beau.
Note: This post is written for the 'love theme' contest by The chennai bloggers club in association with woodooz and Indian Superheroes . A collaboration with Srilakshmi, you can see her blog here. It was great knowing pro bloggers like her I have a long way to go! Hope y'all had a great valentine's day!
