Your first love

People say to never forget your first love. The exquisite joy and the heartwrenching pain are essential in building you. That a broken heart helps shape you into the person you eventually become.

I'm sure this is true.

But honestly, I was never in love before T. Partly because we met so young. But also because I was never one of those girls that boys liked. I had girlfriends who had new boyfriends before they got rid of the old one, but I never even went on a date.

Sure, I had crushes. But they were always unrequited. And the only boys who liked me were the ones I didn't like back.

So, T, you are my first and only love. I adore you with every breath in me. Thank you for making my life perfect. Thank you for making me happy every single day. Thank you for our darling boys. I love you.

Happy Valentine's Day.


  1. i was thinking about this the other day. sure i loved the other guys i was with. but what i have with the boyfriend is completely different. seems so much more real and all consuming. that love that you cant stop thinking about.


    {make sure you look at my blog!}

  2. I'm the same as you. Hubby is my first love, and I love that my view of love was not tainted before this. No broken hearts or weeks of weeping.

    I hope you had a lovely weekend. xx

  3. That's just beautiful!

    I'm so thrilled to have discovered your blog {thanks to you discovering mine!} and have just devoured it. I adore your headpieces {can't believe your hats were featured with Julie's clothes - love her!} and totally think you should do whatever it takes to live out that dream and make creating wonderful headpieces your reality. x

  4. Carly - i think that's what the difference is between that heady teenagey love and the real deal.
    Kelly - I just read your valentine's day traditions. You are one hilarious woman!
    Chantelle - hope you had a wonderful weekend too. I think we're the lucky ones xx
