Recently, an acquaintance of mine instant messaged me. She’s someone I’ve only met a few times, and really, other than her last name, I don’t know her at all. “Check this out,” she said, giving me a link to her Flickr stream. “This is my new guy. He’s so fantastic.”
Another good friend recently added a post to her blog, before quickly removing it: “I think I’m falling in love.”
Even my 4-year-old daughter starts jumping around like a banshee when the little boy across the street comes outside to play.
There’s something about new love, isn’t there? It’s been a while for me: I’ve been happily married for going on 7 years now, and while I love my husband deeply and wouldn’t trade what I feel for him for anything in the world, it’s not the same as that oh-my-God-I-think-he-actually-likes-me-why-can’t-I-stop-thinking-about-him flush you get when you’re falling for someone new. And even if it’s at the start of a love that is destined to end, it’s still all just so … intoxicating.
Happy Love Thursday, all. Please leave your links to your images of love in the comments, below, and check out what mainemomma2007 uploaded in our Flickr pool — the beginning of a new love, maybe?
Have a wonderful, love-filled day.
