"Love Is A Gift"

Today, I went out to the local bookstore to buy a calendar for 2015 and found this adorable pocket calendar.  Every month starts with a nice saying like the title above.

As you plan your elopement or full wedding in Santa Barbara, the holiday season is a time to reflect on love.  We shouldn't take for granted the love we receive from our would-be-spouse only.  Think of it as being in a very lucky place and time in your life.  

I have a very good friend that recently lost her husband of 24 years and said to me yesterday that the holidays are the hardest time of the year.  "Just not quite the same anymore" she said.  It made me realize that we should never take love for granted and that love is a gift.

Since it is the season of giving, go out and spread the love you have in your hearts for your significant other and spread the love to others. If you see a homeless person tell them that you need a hug.  If you have a relative you haven't hugged in a long time, ask for a hug when you see them.  You will be surprised at the response and the cozy hug you will receive.  We all need love, especially the love that we receive from our prospective spouse.

Here is wishing love and happiness this week. Now go out and spread the love!
