Love Song Part 2

Some of you may remember the note I posted several weeks ago, called Love Song –

This was a spontaneous stream of conciousness in celebration, awe, joy, wonderment and gratitude for my love.  He recently did a similar thing. Not to copy or to emulate, which would be fine, but just out of a similarly spontaneous and pure place…. I woke to find this list in my inbox…

I am not posting it to show off, or brag, but rather because sometimes it is truly humbling and delightful and revealing to see yourself through the eyes of another – especially one who loves you in all your aspects, wholly and completely.

With love, ellen xx
