“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
— Dr. Seuss
Do you believe in the love that is showcased in movies?
I’m always a sap and get sucked into romantic comedies (“Love, Actually” – a cute holiday movie too!) as well as the somewhat epic love stories (“The Notebook” tugged at all those heart strings). But I’m not sure I really believe in concepts like love at first sight or that opposites always makes the best couples or that childhood sweethearts work out 20 years later.
But what I love about love in real life is that it isn’t about grand gestures and dramatic moments. Some of my favorite times with my husband are quiet ones. We had a date night (elusive but awesome) at a hole in the wall burger place a few days ago and then just sat and stared at the turbulent rain outside. It wasn’t a movie moment like the moments portrayed in this sweet editorial. But it was a nice moment with a couple comfortably in love. I love the love displayed in movies, but am perfectly happy with the love I experience in daily life too.
Have a lovely week!
