Things we love…on Valentine’s Day!

Today I came across people and I asked them, “What do you love? What can you tell me you love today, Valentine’s Day?”

And this is what they said.

Ran into Mark at mass. :)

Ran into Mark at mass. 🙂 He’s getting to this point where he’s not super apprehensive anymore when I’m like, “FOR THE BLOG! LEMME TAKE YOUR PHOTO!” and that makes me happy.

  1. My parents: very devout and the influential people to me
  2. My older brother, John: really smart and always offers sound advice
  3. My niece, Giovanna: really cute, adorable and the sweetest kid.
  4. The Church: DUH! Why do you think I go to daily Mass?
  5. Art: I have always loved drawing and do it as much as I can.
The boys were gaming in the basement. From L to R: Ryan, Josh, DJ.

Ryan’s list came quickly to him, passionate Italian that he is:

  1. Jesus
  2. Chocolate chip cookies
  3. Swimming
  4. The atmosphere in cities
  5. The artist Usher

Josh’s came a little more slowly:

  1. Pizza. Probably with bacon.
  2. Video games
  3. Thanksgiving
  4. Riding his bike in the summer
  5. Playing ice hockey

D.J. started strong with numbero uno “cheeseburgers” but had some trouble after that.

DJ: “What do I love…”
Ryan: “Cats! Christmas! Sledding!”
DJ: “Ummmmm…”
Ryan: “I just gave you so many good answers!”
DJ: “But I don’t love those things!”

So we ended with:

  1. Cheeseburgers
  2. The movie “Sandlot”
  3. Sloths, the animal
  4. Sleep
  5. And he would love to go to London

  1. I love snow. Crazy, I know, but if it’s gonna be cold out it might as well be beautiful!
  2. I love the theatre. Or acting in general. I secretly want to be an actress one day. Or not so secretly…
  3. I love quiet time. Not all the time but sometimes it hits the spot when you can read, pray or just sit in silence.
  4. I love traveling. Give me a plane ticket to just about anywhere, and I’m a happy camper.
  5. I love mugs. Strange? Yes, probably. But I have an ever growing mug collection from all over the world that I’m determined to display in my home someday.
My other partner in crime, Gaurice, my intern. Such a good kid. So good.

And, lastly, Juli-YEAH. With the freshly-cut hur. 😉

  1. A bright sunny sky
  2. Fresh fruit (especially peaches!)
  3. Three types of movement: yoga, running, dancing. “They each bring their own peace and joy.”
  4. “Creating things. I love working with my hands.”
  5. Laughing.

Celebrate love today, guys. Celebrate hard.

XO,
Nell
