I had no idea when I started the Love List 15 days ago, that folks would take to it. Men and women alike. Mind you I have gotten more private emails about my Love List than I can share. I have gotten quirky marriage proposals...that I said no to... but was flattered nonetheless. I've gotten suggestions...which I have taken. And folks have asked if they could copy same...of course I said yes!

There is something very hopeful about the Love List. It is magical and romantic and common sensible all at the same time. It feels like the most perfect thing to do, but we never do. At least I've never done it. Each morning I get up and I think about what the Love List ought to say and then like magic the suggestions show up. Things that I have long forgotten about, or things that I believe are more than anyone could possibly be. But so what! It is all about the grandest of possibilities.

The Love List may bear out my next "True Love" I am convinced that it will. Maybe not at the end of March, or at the end of the year. It may well be that my "True Love" is in front of me or far away from me. The thing that I love about it is that I get to dream and imagine and wish and lay out in a very thoughtful way a great many qualities I find attractive in myself and in someone else. I am laying out myself in this Love List and that is amazing.

The Love List 64-66

  • 64. When its that Time of the Month, he will keep me in dairy-free chocolates and wine!
  • 65. Will wrangle the children while I sleep in every once in a while.
  • 66. Will let me cater Boys Night In sometimes. I know this is sacred, but I could really set it up beautifully and keep it all manly-man of course.

#66 is so wonderfully generous of you, but even better, if your love accepts your offer, it is the definitive sign that you are absolutely part of his "inner circle" (understanding that you will NOT be staying in the midst of the action or anything ;)and your love has truly ARRIVED!!

Sharon, I never thought of that! I do not want to come off as smothering to a man. But I know how to throw a good party/get-together/soiree and sometimes just the little bit of planning can make the smallest event like hanging out with friends much more special

Sharon said...

Yes! my twin. I too am a party throwing officionado so I soooooooo feel where you are coming from on this one. Having successfully put together a few get togethers for a past S/O, I can attest to the postive impact my little special touches added to his parties had on elevating "our (his and my) parties" ;)

everyone, especially woment, should make a love list. we make lists for everything else - grocerys, to do's, ect..- this is essential and mandatory. and should always be a work in progress, as we ourselves are.

love you sis

Hey Princess,

Yes I certainly believe that now as I am making this list. It is quite illuminating and gives me pause for discernment of my heart's desires
