The #AllYouNeedIsLoveProject: To Be In Love…


I’m so happy to announce that I’ve joined in with the lovely Carmen at ShuGar Love to participate in her new blog project, the All You Need is Love Project!! It’s very exciting and I’m thrilled to be taking part. Carmen and her hubby, Mr. ShuGar, are big Beatles fans (as I’m sure you’ll realize the second you hit her blog) and they’re currently expecting their first child! I hope you’ll visit Carmen’s site and get to know her. You’ll love her as much as I do, I promise!

So for my first All You Need is Love Project post, Carmen asked a simple question:

How do you know when you are in love? What does it feel like to you?

I’d always heard the phrase that “when you know, you know!” but it wasn’t until I met The Hubby that I actually discovered the truth of that phrase. Every time we made eye contact, I felt butterflies; my heart beat a little faster; and I found myself unable to think of any man except for him. I could say that the last time I fell in love was when I met my husband 12 1/2 years ago…but every time he tells me I’m beautiful, reminds me of what a good mommy I am, or even if he clears the dishwasher or picks up our son’s toys, I fall in love with him all over again. And that feels like warmth starting in my belly and spreading its way up, down, and all around my body until I feel like I’ve been swimming in sunshine.

So, how about you? How do you know you’re in love? What does it feel like to you? Let me know in the comments!

  • I loved every word of what you wrote. The warmth part is real. It takes over your body. I’m so happy you have this in your life. You’ve both created such a beautiful family. It’s truly a blessing and you deserve all this love. Thanks for your kindness! It’s so exciting to share love experiences together =)

  • Hi Erin! I’m happy to meet you through the Love Project. I adore your post and the lovely picture 😉 you guys look so happy together.

    Thanks so much, Elba! It’s great to meet you too! My hubby and I are very happy together….seven years of marriage and counting!

  • I know exactly how you feel. Nothing sexier than seeing your significant other helping out. I joke with friends about how sexy my guy looks when he takes out the trash/recycling.. but honestly, he looks so hot. I think that’s what keeps relationships alive. You have to look for the little hints of why you want to spend the rest of your life with this person… they’re there. Same goes for why you wouldn’t want to, those signs are there as well.

    PS: I’m joining ShuGar in this project, it’s too cute to pass up. Working on my post now!

    I love guys who help! And Hubs got that from me. His mom did everything for him growing up – dishes, laundry, all of it – and when we got married I told him that I wasn’t going to be his servant. Not only did he accept that, but now he does more cleaning than I do! LOL 🙂
