Hey you may have guessed today is Saint Valentines Day. And you may know that the old Carla wasn’t so fond of this day having spent almost 10 years on and off in my 20’s/30’s single.
But I do believe in love, in all kinds of love, for all ages and today I would like to celebrate love in all it’s forms.
The love of mother’s and daughter’s (thanks mum for the parcel that arrived today, you’re an angel)! xx
The ‘just met him/her, can’t take my hands of them, smiling to myself all the time’ kind of love.
‘Best friend’ kind of love, something that starts out when we are small and lasts a whole lifetime (loving you Ath)!
‘Roadtrip love’ that only you can do with your besties who will want to fossick around in every store along the way, eat in the same restaurants and drink the same kind of fruity drinks you love!

Love him/her as much as ‘the first days I laid eyes on them’ kind of love.. (I still can’t wait for Francesco to come through the door at the end of the day just as exciting as the first day I met him.. Aw gee..)
Kindness, sensitivity and loving an animal kind of love..This image I found on Pinterest it touched me so profoundly. A French hospital allowed a dying woman to spend her last days with her cat. Now that is REAL LOVE, from the hospital for the woman and her cat!

For that ‘no matter how long you have know each other love there are times when we just need to hold each other and dance’ kind of love.
And for ‘love that has weathered the years, the storms and I will always be there for you kind of love’. Love has no age.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Remember love comes in all forms and it is important to share the love!!
