Reflections of a Romantic…

I have always believed in love … the mushy, curl your toes, feel good kind of love. The one you don’t believe is yours even when you’re smiling from the inside out. The one where your life is so beautifully complex yet so magically simple. The one where everything is said in love, done for…

Twenty mineteen
