(Warning: this post is oozing with mushiness!)
It’s past Valentines Day but who says we only get to spread the love on just one day alone. We have 364 other days to do it as well. So, in light of spreading not just love, but peace, positivity, happiness and goodwill to all (Do I sound like a Miss Universe contestant now?), this post is my version.
A big thank you to Adele of The Girl in Glasses for thinking of me. If you like sassy, chic and the “warm fuzzies” (to borrow her words), you should go check out her blog.

This really isn’t my favorite love quote but I find it funny and I just have to put it in here. Because it is true, ask any old couple!
I will have to break the last rule here because I have learned in the past whenever I nominated specific blogs for certain awards, most of them politely declined to participate. But if any of you out there reading this would love to spread the love then by all means do so. Cheers to you!
Here’s my all time favorite poem on love and marriage.
Kahlil Gibran on Marriage
You were born together, and together you shall be forever more.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Fill each other’s cup, but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread, but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.
