love is a verb, love is a doing word;

Valentines day is less than a week away, so I thought it only apt that I post something romance related.
Two thousand and eleven is the very first year I have a gorgeous boy in my life for February the fourteenth, how exciting  ♥
Romantics are a dying breed in todays society, though I like to think I at least try to keep it alive.
I cooked spaghetti bolognese from scratch, including the sauce on Friday (my boys favourite meal) and I was very proud of the final product. In my opinion, it is the small things that count -though don't get me wrong the big gestures are always much appreciated; give me a bunch of hand picked over sized daisies and you'll get the biggest smile in return.

I have been reading "Love Letters of Great Men" by Ursula Doyle, and I think it's so very sad how love is not thought upon in the same way anymore, and how men used to be proper men and why is it that today so many people are easily willing to cheat on their partners?
I myself grew up with wonderful role models in love in the form of my parents, who got together when my mama was fifteen, and were together up until my papa died late last year.
Keep romance alive ♥

Good morning, on 7 July

Even in bed my ideas yearn towards you, my Immortal Beloved, here and there joyfully, then again sadly, awaiting from Fate, whether it will listen to us. I can only live, either altogether with you or not at all. Yes, I have determined to wander about for so long far away, until I can fly into your arms and call myself quite at home with you, can send my soul enveloped by yours into the realm of spirits – yes, I regret, it must be. You will get over it all the more as you know my faithfulness to you; never another one can own my heart, never – never! O God, why must one go away from what one loves so, and yet my life in W. as it is now is a miserable life. Your love made me the happiest and unhappiest at the same time. At my actual age I should need some continuity, sameness of life – can that exist under our circumstances? Angel, I just hear that the post goes out every day – and must close therefore, so that you get the L. at once. Be calm – love me – to-day – yesterday.

What longing in tears for you – You – my Life – my All – farewell. Oh, go on loving me – never doubt the faithfullest heart

Of your beloved


Ever thine.
Ever mine.
Ever ours.

Sincerely, Alexa
