Celebrating Love – All Kinds Of Love

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.

Puppy 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!!

    • Hi Contessa, you are the best, typing and juggling a cat.. It’s quite an art one that I am still mastering especially when he decides to jump all over the keyboard and make crazy shortcuts… Enjoy your day.. Carla x

    DE beaux gestes d’amour…

    Happy Valentines


  14. I like the idea that Valentines day needn’t only be celebrated by only lovers. Everyone feels loneliness at some point, and we can all do with a little attention now and then.
    For those who are lucky, everyday is Valentines Day [minus the commercial aspect].

    Happy Valentines Day Carla.

    Such beautiful images of love. :-) The one of the old lady and her cat is a treasure. Makes me teary. :-) How wonderful of the hospital to show such love. So glad you have your Francesco now. :-) I have been with my love for 1.5 years now after spending so long single. He is my treasure and, like you, I am so happy when he comes home each day. :-)

  17. love in all it’s many forms is cause to celebrate,each of these touched my heart especially the lady with the cat who reminded me of my own Nana. Most profound for me has been the love for our children. I now understand my own Mother’s words when I was first expecting and life will never be the same again, and I also treasure the love for a son lost now in heaven. OH and of course my hubby…..he says he loves me far more often than I tell him, I love you Sammie xxx

  18. Your words made me cry Lisa..love to you special girl xx

  19. Such a sad, but happy photo of the old lady and her cat spending their last precious hours together.

    Hope you had a great & romantic Valentine’s
