Feel the Love

My closest friends describe me as a total romantic. And I love any excuse to dress up, eat chocolate, write a love letter, and snuggle with my favorite husband. Plus, red is definitely my color. So, naturally, Valentine's Day is one of my favorite days of the year.

This year, I thought I would share some of my favorite love quotes.


"Across whatever desert it is, I send you my love."- What Dreams May Come

"I am no one special. Just a common man with common thoughts. I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I've succeeded as gloriously as anyone who ever lived. I've loved another with all my heart and soul and for me that has always been enough." - The Notebook

"You're everything I never knew I always wanted." - Fools Rush In

"They say that when you meet the love of your life time stops, and that's true. What they don't tell you is that once it starts up again, it moves extra fast to catch up." - Big Fish

"If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you." - Winnie the Pooh

"Stop talking about love. Every asshole in the world says he loves somebody. It means nothing. What you feel only matters to you. It's what you do to the people you say you love, that's what matters. It's the only thing that counts."- The Last Kiss

"Love me and the world is mine." - unknown

"Maybe mistakes are what make our fate... without them, what would shape our lives? Maybe if we never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it's comforting to know that the ones you love will always be in your heart... and if youre very lucky, a plane ride away." - Sex and The City

"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and them subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether you roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love"which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what's left over after being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards eachother underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two." - St. Augustine
