EVERYTHING IS BETTER WITH LOVE

by Miss Bliss

“That is so true, darling!  Everything is better when you are in love,” says Ivanka, my bi Russian friend.  It is a cool Sunday in Hollywood and we have met for a late breakfast in my favorite vegetarian cafe.  “That is why I cannot be in an open relationship.   I love my husband and am in love with him.  He would let me sleep with another man or woman if I wanted, but my heart knows that I wouldn’t enjoy it.  I am too in love with him.”

Red Dress Black Garters“It’s funny how love sneaks up out of nowhere and surprises you,” I say.  “Kissing is always sweet and tender, but it becomes something indescribable when you are in love.  Suddenly, your lips are connected to your heart, your mind, your stomach, the bottoms of your feet.  The right kiss when you are in love feels like a conversation.  Love takes a physical sensation and elevates it to a place of divine connection.”

“Yes,” Ivanka says, flashing her dimple.  “When I was still in Russia and dating my husband long-distance, we had that passion.  You know, the passion where you can’t sleep, can’t eat, and only think about being together.  I have never experienced such passion with anyone else and that is why I know we are supposed to be together.”

“Sometimes we need to have dated people we weren’t in love with to know when the right person has come along,” I say.  “I know that I was surprised when my man first kissed me – my knees went weak and I almost fell!  That’s how much the intensity of love surprised me.” I take a sip of my soy chai and look up at her light eyes.  “Ivanka, if you hadn’t been married before or dated women before or whatever, you might not have recognized how extraordinary your current relationship is.”

“You are right.  I am lucky.”

“You are lucky,” I say with a smile.  “To fall in love is one of the greatest experiences this world offers because it makes every mundane moment full of magic and bliss.”

A FEW THINGS THAT ARE EVEN BETTER WITH LOVE:

  1. Holding hands.
  2. Kissing.
  3. Cooking.
  4. Drinking wine.
  5. Napping.
  6. Making love in the morning, afternoon and night (and any hours in between).
  7. Showering.
  8. Dressing up to go out.
  9. Dancing.
  10. Eating.
  11. Breathing.
  12. Waking up in the morning.
  13. Working.
  14. Touching toes under tables.
  15. Massaging.
  16. Thinking about what marvels the future will bring.

how about shopping of any sort? P and I were in a Wal-Mart in a tiny Texas town where the idea of a fancy place to eat was Chili’s… She needed to pick up a few things from the local Wal-Mart and it was such wonderful fun to almost skip through the store hand in hand as we searched for the things she needed. And when thinking of moments that truly touch my heart…those are ones that would be hard to ever replace.

This is a wonderful post… and so true! This answers a question or two that I’ve had in my brain.

One thing that is better with love,… LAUGHTER. I have never truely enjoyed laughing as much as I do when my husband/best friend/partner makes me laugh. And nothing brings a more honest smile to my face faster then when I make him smile or laugh.

One of my favorites is being out with friends, looking across the room and noticing that sexy, wonderful, handsome man and realizing that he actually love me. . .
all that wonderful goodness is IN LOVE WITH ME! How special and lucky can one girl feel?

What I like is when I haven’t seen him in awhile, and he’s always more handsome than I remember… And his kisses always seem better. I’m just constantly amazed…

Oh, and I like soy chai too!
