I have so much to be thankful for this Valentine's Day, including a man I am so madly in love with and who has taught me how to not only love again, but to be the real me. Here's to you, my love, and to all of those who have found or are still searching for that special someone...keep believing, enjoy every moment you have and love, love, love!
I already love in you your beauty, but I am only beginning to love in
you that which is eternal and ever precious - your heart, your soul.
Beauty one could get to know and fall in love with in one hour and
cease to love it as speedily; but the soul one must learn to know.
Believe me, nothing on earth is given without labour, even love, the
most beautiful and natural of feelings.
-Count Leo Tolstoi to Valeria Arsenev, his fiance, November 5, 1856
