Celebrating Love {2-14-15}

Thank you to Ruth Ayres for hosting this weekly celebration of life!

Since it's Valentine's Day, I am taking a few moments to celebrate love. (Cliche, I know, but I can't help it.)

* The love of my husband who has been my partner in life for 20 years.  Our love has grown, been tested, and made stronger over the years.  He is an amazing husband and father and I'm very lucky that we found each other.

* The love I feel for my two children.  They are both growing into amazing adults.  I am proud to be their mom.
* The love of my two dogs, Rosie & Toby, who "get me" better than anyone else some days.
* The love I feel for teaching.  I didn't become a teacher until after trying out several other careers (including being a stay-at-home mom for 10 years).  However, there is no doubt in my mind that I am living my passion every day.

* My love of learning.  Some people may feel that learning stops once you leave the classroom.  There may have been a time in my life when I felt this way too, but I definitely don't any more. 

What love are you celebrating this week?


  1. Wonderful to see this list, Jennifer. You're fortunate to have many loves, each one special in your life. Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. Such a treat to read about all of the love in your life!!! Thank you for sharing! Happy Valentine's Day!

  3. Such great pieces of your life to celebrate--huge accomplishments, too. So enjoy all those blessings and Happy Valentine's Day!

  4. Funny that you think your celebration of love is too cliche... I'm starting to think that maybe I should have done a love celebration post of my own since that's what so many others are writing about today. I'm a rebel I guess. :)

    Rosie and Toby are so sweet. Dogs just make like so much better. I just can't imagine a house without dogs in it.

  5. You have so much love in your life-not something cliche or taken for granted! Happy Valentines Day!

  6. So much love! I am celebrating the love of friends and family this week. Sometimes that's the only thing to help you make it through!
    I am glad that you have so much love in your life!
