Happy Valentine’s Day!

Today is the perfect day to ask yourself, what is my definition of love? If you asked me this eight years ago when I first fell in love my answer would have been different than my answer today, however I have learned many lessons the past eight years.

Since then, she attended all of my birthday parties and I’ve also worshiped with her at her church a few times in the past.
