happy love day

Today, Smith + Emma land, I encourage you to celebrate all of the love in your life. The love you receive, the love you give. The love you have for yourself.

Today is a celebration of all love, and what a beautiful thing that is. 

Sometimes, when I really think about love, I'm awed by it. Its place in the human experience. Its universality. No matter who you are or where you live, love is something you long for. 

So maybe no flowers arrive at your desk today, your pals all have plans and that girl in your office decked in pink and red makes you want to vomit. 

I can assure you, you're not alone. Because in as much as love is a shared human experience, so is heartbreak. And loneliness. 

So buy the obnoxious girl a latte. Call your grandma. Smile at someone as you pass them.

Spread some love today. We've all been on every side of February 14. Attached, single, happy, sad, excited, disappointed, lonely, loved.

The beauty of it is -- no matter what side we're on this day -- we're never really alone in it.
