“Congratulations,” my friend said upon hearing we were expecting a baby girl. “Your wife is about to introduce you to the love of your life.”
This Valentine’s day, I have come to appreciate the wisdom in his words. Of course, when Electra brought me a piece of chocolate cake earlier today, knowing my love of the stuff, it got me thinking: your loved one is supposed to bring you chocolate. But what happens when you’re in love with chocolate? Shouldn’t you get twice as much chocolate whatever? With sprinkled chocolate and chocolate flakes, perhaps?
Aaaanyway, when not pondering such great conundrums, I realized that I have, in fact, three loves in my life: Electra, Maria Natalia and writing – a huge part of which is my new friends and community, i.e. you*
So, whatever it is that warms your heart (and I’d love to read all about it in the comments), think of today as the perfect opportunity to treasure it.
- And chocolate. Definitely chocolate.
