love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.


As a child, I had an idealized version of what love was. Love to me was full of beautiful dresses, handsome princes and perfect fairy tale endings. Like most little girls, I fell in love with the idea of love.

By the time I reached my teens, I no longer believed that love existed for me, but my faith in that idealized romance never wavered. I fell in love with celebrities and love songs meant for other people. Love was the answer to a question I never had the nerve to ask.

I still believe in that idealized version of love....now I have found someone who makes me feel loved and cherished every single day.

Whether you're single or attached, I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day! Here are some of my favourite romantic pictures to get you in the mood for the holiday:









Happy Valentine's Day!

  27. obožavam taj Heinlenov citat, tako je u pravu! On mi je jedan od najdražih pisaca:)Ljubav je doista stanje u kojem ti je sreća druge osobe tvoja sreća, ostalo je ego trip.
    pozdrav!
