Write more love letters



more-love-letters-400x288-300x216February is all about love. I am just going on two years married, with a nearly one year old boy, so I’m not sure how much wisdom I have to share on this subject.

However I have loved and hated my family throughout seasons of my life, I have gone in and out of obsession, conflict and madness with some close girlfriends. I have been a flatmate, a travel companion and a work colleague.

We all have love to give, we all desperately crave love yet as I stand in the queue at my local shops listening curiously to many conversations, we all seem to have forgotten it.

This February why don’t you write more love letters. Ladies we can make an impact, even if we are a stay at home mum, covered in nappies and vomit. Take five and reach out to someone else.

Let’s combat the decay and depression with a spark of love.

Happy February
