My dad was a German major and translated this poem to read at my parents’ wedding. Last week, I overheard him reciting it to my mom as she made dinner, & I thought, “that’s love.” After 30 years, it’s amazing to see people light up at the sight of the other. Happy Valentine’s Day, friends and people of the internets. Whether you’re spending the day with your partner, friends, or a Colin Firth movie & Chinese takeout (goodness knows we’ve all been there), I hope today’s a good one & that you get to celebrate love in some form. xo, m

Du bist mein, ich bin dein

I belong to you and you to me,
Of that certain you can be
You are locked within my heart
And lost forever is the key.
