Love is a crazy thing. Something that is so powerful that it can make you feel weak in the knees is also so consuming that it can feel like the beginning and end of everything. When you’ve fallen in love with “The One” cliché’s like soulmate or love of my life come to mind and it doesn’t even matter that they are overstated, because for you they are truer than true.
One of my favorite books is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I’m a sucker for the Jazz age mixed with a love so consuming that it shakes Gatsby’s entire world up. I always thought, I want a love like that. If you’re familiar with the story, you might be a bit confused so let me explain a bit. I didn’t want the one-sided, affair ridden love story, but I wanted a love with someone who truly was the beginning and end of everything for me. I wanted a love story where my best friend and I had it all, and lucky me, I got it!
I got the kind of love story where my best friend and I get to play house every day, make each other smile, keep each other company, cheer each other on, and always be each other’s biggest fan. I got the kind of love story where no matter what happens – the good or the bad – I know he’s got my back and we’ll get through it. I’ve got the kind of love story that ends with “…and they lived happily ever after.” Life really began when I met him, and it’ll never end as long as his heart is mine.
Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, so I’ve created a new print for my shop that I hope will be a hit with all the lovers out there. It’s perfect for both the new lovers planning their wedding and the rest of their lives together, or the old lovers who have already created a life together and get to wake up each morning to reconfirm that love. This beautiful print – available as an instant download or professionally printed – will add the perfect touch to your wedding design or your home decor. Heck, get it for your wedding, and then use it afterward in your home!
