new love

love birds
So my best friend is in love and it was very much evident in her actions, words and smiles this weekend. She has found someone that makes her laugh and let's her shine. I've never been a big fan of any of her boyfriends (I am a bit over-protective and maybe a little too picky) but I was pleasantly surprised by her new beau. He is a strong leader, he is passionate, he is a great communicator and he gets her. By the end of the weekend I was ok with leaving my lil sis in his hands, it did of course take some prying at my tightened fingers. Haha.

This is a poem that I love about love...
How Do I Love Thee? by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Ah, new love. Nothing like it!!! They look like a cute couple but I can't really see him with his glasses on. The eyes are the windows to our soul, right?
