Inspired by Love & Romance

Oh goodie! I have been saving this link to share with you and I could barely contain myself! Chris Craymer’s book Romance (available on his website for sale) is absolutely charming, edgy and delightful. Makes me want to hold my hubby hostage for a “sick day” at home, so we can snuggle all day :)

But really, I am inspired mostly by the love I’m getting from my husband during this career/life change. There is nothing better than being seen exactly the way you wish to be seen, by someone you love. There is nothing better for me than coming home from a shoot and being hugged and seen by proud sparkling eyes, full of love.

I know that I have talked about all the challenges in this transition, but what I haven’t spoken about is the love, the support and the generosity I’ve been relying on, to make this happen. There was a time in my life when I solely depended on my strength as an individual to make my dreams come true. But these days, the journey and the learning are bigger, because I realized nothing really matters that much, unless I can share it with someone special. And even though it is so much harder to blend the interests, dreams, and conquer the fears of two, it is also exponentially better when you find a way to make it happen.

So I am dedicating this week to my love. The one who holds me with the most delicious surfer arms, the one who sees me cry, laugh, fall, try again, skip and dance around the house often. The one with ocean blue eyes that pour pure, mega love for me. The one who listens to all my crazy stories of magic and possibility. The one who is willing to work on his own ‘stuff’ as much as I am willing to work on mine, so we can be a rocking team. The one who travels with me around the world and through life’s journey. The one who I can’t live without. No way. I love him madly.

Want to join me on my “Love Week”? I challenge you to lay low on work, dreams, ambitions of any kind this week. It is easy to get caught up and not love. So dedicate sometime to consciously love, do things with love, receive love, send love notes, rub noses, give butterfly kisses, squeeze cheeks, hug tight, snuggle to no end… Just love this week, will you? It’s really good for your skin! :) While you are at it. Take pics, please.
You must cherish and be cherished by at least one lucky being this week. Could be a friend, a relative, a child, a pet even or a lover. Who is it going to be?
