L O V E

'a strong feeling of affection'

Well, at least, that's what the dictionary thinks love means.

There are a few words you just can't define. L o v e  is one of them. You can try and try again, but never find words powerful enough to describe love.

In the world, I 'love' many things: blogging, reading, writing, my pet hamster, fashion, netball, gaming, playing outside, spending time with my family.

Some I love more than others.

There are things I just simply couldn't live without, my family, friends and my blog.

Love means different things for different people.

not mine

 
you don't realize just how much you love something, until you don't have it
A few weeks ago, I came into my playroom to find my adorable little big hamster, Iggy not in his cage. The tunnel had been broken, and he'd escaped. All my doors were open, he could have gone ANYWHERE...

I knew I loved my hamster a lot, but I wasn't really sure just how much. Fortunately, we found my hamster alive, squashed behind one of my many bookshelves.

But it really made me think, and it wasn't an experience I ever want to relive.

Love isn't just something you want. It is something you need. If it hurts, then it isn't pure love. If you aren't sure, then it isn't pure love. But love isn't immaculate, it isn't perfect...

  3. I always feel ashamed when I tell someone I love them for giving me a piece of their food or something. I shouldn't use that world unless I mean it.

  4. Hey Lexie! This is a beautiful post, very deep as well :) Reading this, I've realized I'm taking so many things in my life for granted, I won't know how to appreciate it until I lose them. This is a wake up call for me! Thank you for this great post x

  5. Aww, this is beautiful, I'm glad you found your hamster! One time, I couldn't find my pet dog and I cried so hard. Eventually, we found her in our shed. I thought I lost her, lesson learned. PS: Happy late blog birthday (im sorry im like 10 days late).
